Sketchy Saturday

This week, I was given the chance to create with a great sketch by Tara Thynne.  You can view the sketch here in the WeScrap forum.

And here's my version:

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basic cardstock; Basic Grey patterned paper; Fiskars & Martha Stewart Crafts border punches; Crafter's workshop template (for brad placement); Doodlebug Designs alpha stickers; Versapen; Ranger embossing powder; American Crafts and Doodlebug Designs brads; Uniball Signo white pen; Glossy Accents; McCall pattern tissue; feathers, ribbon, heart brad (unknown).

I made the white flower from wide sheer organza ribbon that I had in my stash, based on this video by Arlene (mybutterflykisses12).  I loved the look of the centre beads she used but didn't have any in my stash so I compromised with a large brad.  I think I may go back and add some bling to it!

The kraft coloured flower is made from circles, handcut from pattern tissue.  I stacked them all, attached a brad to the center and snipped around the edge to the centre, then ruffled it a bit.  Thanks, to my friend, Jen, who gave me the idea on our scrapbooking weekend in November!  You can see her flowers here on her blog in her layout titled "Namesake".

Again, I wanted to mix up the stickers for the title but didn't have stamps that worked, so I wrote the title with my Versapen, and embossed with fine embossing powder.  I then fussy cut and adhered with Glossy Accents.

This makes my NINTH layout since starting to scrapbook this year (Jan 7th)!!  I think my new scrapbook studio is inspiring me!  The problem is that I haven't stopped long enough to clean and finish sorting it so I don't have any photos to share yet!  I have two more design team commitments and my Leave Your Legacy layout to finish and then I'm done for a few weeks.  I'll tidy it up and then will FINALLY have some photos to share! :)  TFL!


  1. This is seriously awesome Sue! I'm super impressed by the handwritten, embossed and fussy cut title, whoa!
