Good morning to all, here is a layout I have just done using a Sketchabilities sketch No. 80 for my inspiration. I also used the colour scheme from C.S.I. I'll put the links in at the end.
For this one I chose my cardstock and layered up the page as per the sketch.
I distressed all my edges using a Prima distressing tool, but the edge of your scissors would do the job.
I then used some of the freebies at C.S.I. for the word, numbers and sayings and the  banners.
I used a stamp for the mini banners and cut them out of green cardstock.
I used a circle punch to punch out the numbers.
I added my journaling story inside a little envelope that I attached with a small button and  some rafia.
I added some rik rak ribbon,  flowers and a leaf.
I also added one of my hand made stick pins.
I then die cut the title using a Tim Holtz alpha die.
I hope you like it.

Hi everyone, here is a card I have just finished using my last layout as inspiration for the colours, and a card sketch from Stuck On You Sketches for the design.
You can find the sketch by clicking on the link below.
I used the Bookprint paper pack from Papermania for the background and the tag and decorated as per the sketch. I added a lovely velvet brad to hold the tag down, ric rak, mixed flowers, sticky back pearls, a die cut butterfly and some bazzill cardstock in pink and black. Hope you like it and give it a go.

Hi to all on this sunny Monday morning.
Here is a layout I have just finished using a sketch from Once Upon A Sketch as my inspiration.
For this layout I used a 1920s party photo for inspiration.
I took the pink from Jessies skin tone as my background colour, and mixed it with black and white.
I used a 1920s style script for the paper layers and the title.
I made a die cut clock face with hands and added pearls.
I added some pretty lace, some pretty flowers and a photo negative border.
The journalling block is behind the title with  details of the party outfit and party.
I hope you like it.

Hi everyone, here is my very first layout as a designer for STUCK ON YOU SKETCHES.

For this one I used some pretty wintery papers from My Minds Eye and added a little pink cardstock to match Jessies outfit and make the page pop.
I used a circle cutter to cut out the photo and matted it in pink.
I added my other matts then glued the photo on top.
I added a small vellum tag and a sparkly white tag.
I cut out 6 snowflakes using a sizzix die.
I then started to decorate.
I added silver ribbon to the snowflakes and added a central pearl.
I stuck my two tags on with snowflake silver brads.
I  added lots of flowers and pearls.
I made a small bird on a branch from some air dry clay from a kit.
I added the title and there you have it a wintery delight! I hope you like it and give the sketch a go.
