Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #95

I have a super fun sketch for you today from Mandy at Sketch-N-Scrap. This one is going in my file to do over and over again, so many ways to play with this one. The design team came up with a ton of different takes on it check them out on the SNS blog.
Just like the last sketch, I'm still using photos from this summer's vacation. Here we stopped to see Paul Bunyan and his ox Blue. We came in too late to take the ride through the redwoods but just getting to see the big guy and wander through the museum was fun.
Items I used in this layout:
Studio Calico • Wanderlust • For Your Information
Amy Tangerine • Plus One • Accomplice
Card Stock • Yellow
CriCut Expression
Adobe Illustrator
My Stash • Paper Cuts

New YouTube Videos!

Yes I have finally dusted off the camera and finished a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure!

First off is a video showing how crazy easy it is to make your own molds using Amazing Mold Putty. I've seen a couple of videos featuring this product but I wanted to test it out for myself. I am using it for the first time in this video and the results are awesome. Watch that video by CLICKING RIGHT HERE.

Next I show you my take on the ever popular post it note holder. With the holidays right around the corner these make great little gifts to hand out. I also used one of the items I made with mold from the previous video. How cool is that??

With the Husker Volleyball team advancing to the NCAA Regional Semifinals last night, I decided to make some Nebraska Red Post-it Note books. Click on the image below to see this video.

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #63

Today I have the first card sketch of the month from Sketch-N-Scrap. With Christmas coming up I am certainly in need of some Christmas card making inspiration. This card sketch was perfect!
When I saw the large circle I immediately thought wreath. I had purchased Tim Holtz wreath and die set sometime back and hadn't used it yet. It was fun to color the stamp with my distress markers and cut out the extra embellishments to pop up on it.
