Summer Toes Layout for Sketches In Thyme

Do we ever have a great sketch for you at Sketches In Thyme! I love Jenessa's sketch and even better, used some older supplies. I usually don't think to take pictures like this but I'm sure glad I did. Those pedicures lasted all summer and made for a great layout.
Here is the sketch:

Cut Files from Paper Issues and Kerri Bradford
Heidi Swapp - Colorshine - Amethyst

Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Friends Layout for Sketches In Thyme

Sketches In Thyme has a very simple sketch this week which leaves it wide open to the imagination. I hope you play along for a chance at a great prize! I recently won the Be You Collection from Pinkfresh Studio so I had to use it. I couldn't find two pictures that I liked together so I adapted the sketch for one picture.
Here is the sketch:

Cut file - Ashley Horton March 2016 Hip Kit Club

Love Layout

Just procrastinating away making layouts. I joined the Monochromatic challenge at Paper Issues. I chose pink as my colour and black and white were allowed. I used this picture of the kids. We have a picture of the two older ones lying on the same blanket and they couldn't resist photo bombing the baby's picture.
Supplies
Crate Paper - Cute Girl collection
Crate Paper - Heart Day background paper

We Are Silly Layout

I used the Pinspire Me Challenge at Paper Issues to get this layout together. It took FOREVER to go through my pictures to find three with the right colours and similar subject matter. Then it took FOREVER to go through my stash to find the right papers, etc. However, I really like how it turned out so all is good. I considered doing paint streaks in the background but chickened out. The pictures are me eating a ring pop which is a favourite lake treat. My daughter going in to bite a marshmallow and my nephew being cute.

Here is the mood board. I think it's obvious how it inspired me!
Supplies
Recollections - Basics Bold paper
Recollections and My Mind's Eye enamel dots
Bella Blvd chipboard and stickers
MAMBI planner stickers stars
White cardstock
Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Aventure Explore Wander Layout

I finally got a layout done with the Creekside collection! It has frustrated me to no end but I got it to work. I love every paper in this collection so it has been annoying to be unable to use it. How fun that I could match up the trees with the background paper?
I played along with the Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. I used patterned paper, blue, clouds, flowers, die cuts and stickers.
Supplies
One Canoe Two - Creekside
Black fine tip Sharpie pen
Brown embroidery thread

Climber Layout for Sketches In Thyme

Slowly getting these vacation pictures into the album. This week's Sketches In Thyme sketch has spots for three pictures which is great for getting them scrapped faster!
Here is the sketch:
I had only scraps of paper left of the ones I wanted to use, so I modified the sketch to work with this. It felt like it was missing something so I added the knotted embroidery thread at the end to look like the ropes and also outline a mountain.
Supplies
Pink Paislee - Turn the Page, Fancy Free, Take Me Away & Oh My Heart
White embroidery thread


Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Twinsies Layout

I've been rotating through different colletions lately so I thought I should work with my Maggie Holmes supplies. I went through my cut files until this one from Paper Issues caught my eye. I thought the flowers were similar to the paper. I'm sure glad I like the final product because it sure took a long time!
I debated putting some white gesso behind the flowers but I chickened out. I used thread instead.

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.

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

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!

Family Fun Christmas Layout

I got my Christmas pictures developed so I had to scrap at least one. I decided to use a bunch of cut files to piece together scraps of paper. This truly is a stash buster.
I'm playing along with the Take 5 Challenge at Paper Issues. I used a sticker, frame, star, pink and cardstock.
I debated putting some journaling 'on the rug' but it is actually fuzzy paper so I figured no matter which way I try, it would be messy and look out of place. The Silhouette store had a sale last month so I used a pile of cut files. I had trouble choosing a background paper but the pink makes things pop without clashing too much!
Supplies
Fancy Pants Oh Deer sequins
Creative Embellishments chipboard
My Mind's Eye bows and stockings
Bella Blvd sticker
Recollections wood grain paper
Doodlebug white fuzzy paper
Mambi sticker lights
EK Success present stickers
Lots of random papers and cut files
