STUCK ON YOU SKETCHES BLOG HOP


WELCOME TO STUCK ON U SKETCHES 100th  SKETCH BLOG HOP
We are extremely excited to have you all visiting on a historic day for Stuck on U Sketches! 
Today's post marks our 100th sketch! How awesome is that, right?
And to celebrate in a big way we have invited our entire Design Team to join in our sketch challenge! 
An additional challenge was to use this as a layout sketch or transform this into a card design!
The surprise in the blog hop is waiting to see what everyone did!

Now we just couldn't let a big day like today go without a bit of a treat for you all so we have a few wonderful sponsors for our hop!

Our very own Lisa Norris of Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon

Regina Easter of The Cutting Cafe



And two stamp sets from Stephanie of Whimsical Designs:
Our only expectation is to be a follower of Stuck on U Sketches and leave a little love along the way for each team member (this will take some time so our hop is a week long!) We have 3 sponsors and will
pick 3 winners and we'll have those to post for you on Friday, February 8th. 

And some additional sweetness...many of our Design Team members will be offering blog candy on their personal blogs as well! So the chances to get a lil' something is pretty awesome, not to mention all the eye candy with the great projects to see! 

Here is our sketch designed by Leah Schaeffer

TIPS ON HOW TO PUT A LAYOUT OR CARD TOGETHER

If you are a beginner and would like to know a sure-fire way to put a layout or a card together,
just follow my five easy fail-safe steps below.

1. Choose your focal point i.e. photo for your layout or your main theme for your card
    (For my card above my main theme was the envelope)

2. Choose your background cardstock/paper and pretty papers
   ( I usually tie in my colours with my photo or theme)

3. Put together a border (brings the page together)

4.  Add your embellishments (try to colour co-ordinate them)

5. Add a title/greeting (in this case HUGS)
   (Keep your colours down to three or four, too many will clutter your page)

And there you have it.
Hope this helps, have fun and happy scrapping  - Bye For Now and many thanks for stopping by.
