Sketchabilities Reveal > Sketch 45

Today is my first reveal with the Sketchabilities design team.  What a talented bunch of designers with whom I get to work!  Be sure to check out their blogs, listed in the side bar, on the right, for more of their amazing work...

Today's reveal is for Sketch #45 - you can view it here on the Sketchabilities blog. For this sketch, I chose to use two photos that my brother-in-law sent us, taken by Mark Woolford.  He's an actor in Toronto (you may recognize him from a Rogers commercial that is running nationwide right now).

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock; Bo Bunny patterned paper; Fancy Pants transparency (owl); Heidi Swapp chipboard letters; Skribblz Art vinyl transfers (Favourite/Scroll); myStamp BOX stamps (Itty Bittys); Tsukineko Versamark ink; Stampendous embossing powder; EK Success and Martha Stewart Crafts punches; Glue Dots; Tim Holtz Color Wash; unknown doily and chipboard stars.

I spritzed the white doily with the Color Wash to coordinate with the layout better.  Using three different patterns from the Itty Bittys stamp set, I stamped the cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed.  I then used it to cover the chipboard stars:

The Skribblz Art scroll was sliced prior to attaching to the layout, so that it would lay smoothly over the raised photo.
The Skribblz are super easy to use - just peel off the backing, place on your layout or project, burnish by rubbing with your fingers and then peel off!  The look of a handcut title, without the fuss!!

FYI:  If you are interested in the Skribblz Art vinyl transfers for your walls, you can visit Skribblz Art.  However, she no longer creates the scrapbooking transfers.  I have some left in the Just Cre8 store as we clear out of inventory, if you want to take a peek - they fit in an envelope so won't be very expensive to ship.

Now head over to the Sketchabilities blog to view the rest of the team's layouts. And while you're there, be sure to check out our new gallery!!  If you decide to share a layout made with one of the Sketchabilities sketches, you may win a spot as a Guest Designer!

Karan has also started a Readers' Request postif you have any requests that you would like to see incorporated into our upcoming reveal
