2 Page Sketch #5 Happy NSD weekend!

And as a special extra. Here's my tree shape for you to use if you like. I am totally going to have my Cricut cut it out for me. :)


My example uses My Minds Eye papers and photos of my uncle's peach stealing deer.

Susie at Heartfelt Creations was kind enough to share her layout using this sketch. Aren't her papers and inking beautiful?

Once again, Tami has created a fantastic layout to share with us. Visit Tami's Blog Here for close ups and details.

Look at this very cute tree that Angela used on her layout! Visit Angela's blog HERE

2 Page Sketch #6

My example uses the Basic Grey Green at Heart Collection. For details and close up photos CLICK HERE

Look at this beautiful layout by Laurie Zeller! I love Epcots Intl Flower and Garden Festival AND Basic Grey Lemonade! The stitching around the edges is just too perfect. Visit Laurie's Blog for close ups

Tami did a disney page with Chef Oscar from Disneyland. For close ups and details, visit Tami's Blog Here

Here is a beautiful example by Michelle Unruh. Her photos and stitching are perfect and I love the little glossy dotty things. Of course it's one of my fave Echo Park collections "For the Record 2: Documented". Visit Michelle's blog here for more inspiration.

I want to share this example by Jeanne because she chose to use one side of this sketch to create a single page layout. Great idea, huh?

This Sketch has been so much fun that I have had several people tell me they will be sending me links to their layouts. I will add all of them here so you guys can hop around to their blogs and see all of the different fun layouts.

Dawn used the sketch as a 2 pager and you have got to see the way she turned the circle journaling block into a flower. I just love that.

Sketch #21 12x12"

For my example I used Basic Grey Marrakech with some American Crafts and older Scenic Route. For close up photos visit MY BLOG

Kristin turned the sketch sideways to do her cute Jasmine and Aladdin page. I really like that she used those three tags from the Basic Grey Lucky collection. We all have tags from collection packs - try to use them on your sketch pages. Visit Kristin's Blog HERE
