Stuck?! Sketches: July 15th Sketch and Reveal

Hello, hello! Just a quick post today to let you in on my most recent design for Stuck?! Sketches. Here's the awesome sketch by Laura Whitaker:

And my design:

Whenever I scrap photos of my oldest nephew and godson, Renaud, I always gravitate to my Basic Grey stash. And BG's Clippings collection - patterned papers and alphas - was perfect to highlight this sweet photo of Renaud passing down his love and knowledge of trains to Louis-Olivier a few Summers ago. The colours are absolutely perfect! Also dashed a few extra things - Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, Magenta mesh, Making Memories staples, Close to My Heart metal embellishments, Studio Calico wood veneer stars, America Crafts alphas, Stampin' Up cardstock, and some good ol' fashioned hand stitching using my Crafter's Workshop stitching template and some DMC floss.

Want to see what the other Stuck?! Sketches girls came up with for this sketch? Hop along right over here. And when you link your own design using today's sketch over on today's SS reveal, you'll get the chance to win some scrappy loot from Creative Embellishments and Die Cuts with a View. YAHOO!

Happy scrapping!

Stuck?! Sketches: July 1st Sketch and Reveal

Hello, everyone! And Happy Canada Day to all!! Thought I'd drop by to let you in on what I've been up to for the most recent Stuck?! Sketches reveal, revealed today. Here is the awesome sketch by the super talented Laura Whitaker:

And here's my design:

Wasn't quite sure what I was doing or where I was headed with this one, but once I chose a piece of Fancy Pants patterned paper for my background, I then layered bits and pieces I have left over from Pebbles' From Me to You collection. Stamped a few circular images using a Close-to-My-Heart stamp with some StazOn ink. Also hand-stitched using a Crafter's Workshop stitching template and some DMC floss. Stuck some American Crafts and October Afternoon alphas. Journalled on some Stampin' Up cardstock. And embellished away with some My Mind's Eye wood and enamel dots, a Prima Marketing resin flower and some bling, Crate Paper cork hearts, Jillibean Soup word stickers, a Maya Road cat clip, Making Memories staples, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, and some May Arts ribbon. Photo by Philippe Dumas.
