Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash Sketch #4

Today I have the 4th special sketch for SNS's 5th Birthday Bash.
This whole card started with the red wood grain banner. I had previously cut it out for something else that I never used it on. With the sketch in hand I was determined to make that precut banner work. I paired it with some other papers in my scrap stash. The banner is from Claudine Hellmuth and the stamp is from Sizzix.

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #98

I have a card sketch for you today designed by Lisa for Sketch-N-Scrap.
I had fun stamping a few farm animals using Studio Calico's Party Animal Stamp and Die set.  There are a few different sentiments that come with, and this one is perfect for making graduations cards.

Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #129

Today I have the second of our normal sketches from Sketch-N-Scrap.
This last summer I helped my parents clean out their attic. There were tons of my old toys and such up there. One thing we found was my old play wig. Brileigh instantly wanted to try it on. Brett (aka Wayne) thought it was pretty cool too. Rylan on the other hand does not like dress up or anything crazy, so he immediately ran to the corner yelling "Not me Mom! I won't try it on"
Items I used in this layout:
Basic Grey • Basics • Vocab
Basic Grey • Basics • Tally
Basic Grey • Life of the Party • Getting Bigger
Jillibean Soup • Wonderful White Corrugated Alphas
Card Stock • Cream & Brown

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #97

I am back today with a card sketch I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap.
Now I did have Mother's Day in mind when I designed this sketch and if you follow the sketch closely it does make a beautiful Mother's Day card. But you should check out what the other design team members did with the sketch because it can be interpreted so many ways!

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #96

Today is the second card sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap this month. Next month we will be celebrating our 5th anniversary with tons of card and layout sketches for you to be inspired by.
For my card I turned the sketch on it's side. I they used a framelits die from Stephanie Barnard. I made the front embellishment a shaker giving this card a fun addition.
This card is designed to sit up. This was a fun die to play with I have more cards in the works!
