I have so many birthday pictures and never get around to scrapping them, so the More Than Words challenge gave me the push I needed. The challenge is to scrap about birthdays and to use two tags on your layout. I also used a sketch from Stuck Sketches.

Stay Sweet Layout

It's so nice having cute nephew pictures to scrapbook. Here he is eating a lemon. I decided to use the sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. The colours in his shirt made me think of the Amy Tangerine collections and I used mostly Hustle and Heart.
Here is the sketch:
Supplies
Amy Tangerine - Hustle and Heart

Lake Life Layout

I wanted to use the current sketch at Stuck Sketches which uses 4 photos. I rarely have 4 photos of the same event so I found these lake photos. I have lots of beach supplies from Paper House Productions so I decided to use the Lake Life Collection. The diamonds at the top of the sketch made me think of this triangle cut file from Paper Issues. I cut a few extra triangles to back in a darker brown to add some more interest.
Here is the sketch:
Supplies
Paper House Productions: Lake Life Collection, Beach Cardstock Multi Pack, Travel New Jersey 2D Stickers
Paper Issues: It's Geometric cut file
Silhouette Cameo
Black pen

I Like Your Face Layout

I'm trying to go through my stash so with Valentine's Day coming up I pulled out the Crate Paper Heart Day collection. I paired it with a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy and I'm liking the final result. I think the patterns in the sketch made me think of the Heart Day collection. I really wanted to keep the white space in the sketch as it is something I'm not good at but I couldn't resist adding more ric rac. And how cute is my nephew!!
Here is the sketch:
Supplies
Crate Paper - Heart Day
Chipboard: Crate Paper - Hello Love
White cardstock
Michael's: Red ric rak
Heidi Swapp: Cherry Color Shine
Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Noel Layout for S.I.T.

I'm back at Sketches In Thyme with a Christmas layout this month. My daughter loved her stocking presents so it was fun to capture them on this layout.
Here is the sketch:
No automatic alt text available.
I opened random snowflake cut files and drew circles the same sizes as the sketch. I moved them around until I found snowflakes and circles that looked good together. I welded them so the machine would cut snowflake frames. I used textured cardstock to make it more interesting. The smaller snowflakes are from punches. I used ribbon to separate my background papers and some glitter glue to make the snowflakes sparkle. The snowflakes ended up too big to all be on one side of the layout so I spread them across.
Supplies
Crate Paper: Falala
Silhouette Cameo cut files (one from the Hip Kit Club)
Glitter glue
Craft Smith textured cardstock
Core'dinations black cardstock
White pen
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a chance to give this sketch a try. Link up your layout for a chance to win a prize!
