Hello everyone! Christmas time is coming soon and I can’t wait to be home with the family!
I have a card to share today inspired by Sketch N Scrap card sketch. It’s the last card sketch for this year and looking forward to next year sketches.
My card somehow went in a different direction as I was making it. I guess often that happens in creativity 🙂
This is the sketch designed by Heather on Sketch N Scrap:
I stamped a floral border background (from TheTonStamp) and heat embossed it with Hero Arts silver embossing powder. Initially my plan was to add patterned papers and ribbon as inspired by the sketch after I heat embossed it, but that plan didn’t go very well. I just love the background too much and I didn’t want to color it either. So I kept it simple and added a heat embossed sentiment (from TheTonStamp Sending Peonies) with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder which is a slightly warmer silver color.
Although it was a simple card but it took some time with decision making lol I am such a slow crafter! Anyways, I hope you would hop over to Sketch N Scrap to check out what the other design team members had created and join us with our challenges! We would love to see your creations!
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and Happy holidays! Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
It’s almost Christmas time – how exciting! Today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you with Sketch N Scrap layout sketch.
The sketch was designed by Mandy on Sketch N Scrap:
Here is my layout:
The beauty of winter is quite memorable! I just scrap a single 4×6 landscape photo instead of 3 photos. I wanted my title and embellishment in silver so I made my own since I didn’t have anything silver in my stash. I diecut the title and some stars with my Cameo and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder. Then I added some silver splatters with silver metallic watercolors.
There is it a simple holiday-themed layout. Hop over Sketch N Scrap and check out what the other team members had created and hope you would join us with our challenges! Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
Hello! I am sharing a short post today, sharing a simple card inspired by card sketch on Sketch N Scrap.
This is the fun sketch created by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap that is quite versatile for any occasion.
I had the “FUN” banner cut apart from a 12×12 patterned paper in my stash for the longest time and added the “HAVE” alphabet stickers to complete the banner. I decided to use the sticker “worry about the details later” from Shimelle Go Now Go sticker book. Sometimes we should have fun right now without overthinking, right. I thought it would be a fun card to send to a friend.

Hello! Today I want to share a fall-themed scrapbook layout inspired by Sketch N Scrap. On a fall hike, I took pictures of these railroad bridges. I love these bridges – I think they are called trestle bridges. The frames just look really pretty and also absolutely gorgeous with the pretty colors of fall leaves!
Here is my layout:

Hello! It’s November already. I have a scrapbook layout to share today inspired by a layout sketch. The sketch was designed by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap.
For my layout, I flipped the sketch and was inspired by the ‘longish title’ for my photo.
It was a photo taken at the ‘yellow door’ at the lavender farm which was a hot spot for photos. On the header, there was a lovely quote “Walk through the door, your worries behind you, your joys are ahead”. So I diecut the quote with my Cameo with different fonts. I backed it with pink striped paper and went over it with a black pen to highlight the title better.
After I layered the photo with patterned papers, I added some yellow paint splatters. I wanted to add some black since I went over the title with the black pen, so I stamped with a splatter stamp with black ink. Then I added a subtitle below the photo with different alphabet stickersand also the big yellow puffy alphabet stickers to emphasize the door. I also added some fun embellishments with adventure/travel theme from Shimelle Go Now Go collection.
I added the acetate pieces with gold staples for more fun.
It was a fun sketch for my fun layout! Hop over to the Sketch N Scrap blog for more inspiration and play along with our sketches! We would love to see your creations.

Hello! It’s Friday card share with Sketch N Scrap again! It’s the last card sketch for the month and I had a lot of fun making cards this month!
My cards are inspired by this card sketch in the archive created by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap:
I used all the papers from Shimelle True Stories. I fussy cut out the coffee cup from the patterned paper and also the lid. I pop up the lid with foam tape for the extra dimension. I also punched out little hearts from other scraps from the same paper pad and embellished the card. I stamped “thanks” sentiment and pop it up as well on the coffee cup.
I found the card design so cute, and I made cards in smaller versions and thought it would be perfect for the gift cards to coffee/tea places.
It is really simple to make and fun. Hop over to Sketch N Scrap and check out the design team members’ inspiration! Hope you will try out and create with our sketches. We would love to see your creations! Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
Hello! Today I have another birthday card to share. It’s been a long time since I made a card without any patterned paper. So it was a lot fun just with inks and stamp and a cup of ice water to make my card.
Firstly, I was inspired by this card sketch designed by Heather on Sketch N Scrap.
I was really inspired by the drips and circular rings. So I wanted that to be the main background of my card. First I blended some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink onto the card front. Then I had a glass of ice water that had been sitting for a few minutes on the table and put in on my card for a few seconds. Then I just moved the cup to a different position where I want the ring next. It’s just really cool how distress inks works with water.
Then I make some splatters by dropping some water droplets onto the card.
It was really fun and easy to make. Then I stamped my imaged and colored it with Distress Inks as well.
I think it worked really well for a masculine birthday card. Super fun and simple birthday one layer card.

Hello! Today I want to share a scrapbook layout inspired by the layout sketch on Sketch N Scrap. The sketch is designed by Mandy –
I created the layout with a black and white photo with really colourful patterned papers.
I coloured the fabric thickers with gelatos to create an ombre effect by mixing peach & mango colours together. I chose those colours that would match my floral patterned paper from Dear Lizzy. I did add white paint to the floral paper as a base for thickers to pop up more.
The fabric thickers came frayed slightly but I think it adds character and texture. But I love that I can coloured it to any colours that I want to match my layouts.

Hello! It’s another card share today on Sketch N Scrap! We are celebrating every Friday of the month with cards in honour World Card Making Day. I created a simple birthday card using some scrap patterned paper. It really is my aim to make cards using scraps, mainly because I love the papers too much to throw away even the most little tiny pieces.
I was inspired by this sketch designed by Mandy on the blog:
I have a paint splatters stamp (Recollections from Michaels) which is perfect for the card inspiration. I just stamped it with the color (Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe) which matched my patterned papers and cut out some squares with my papers. Then I added a sentiment in the middle square to highlight my sentiment. Then I cut out the little cameras and pop it up with some foam tape to embellish the card. A really quick and simple card to make.
I seemed to need birthday cards more than any other cards yet I do not make enough of it. So hopefully I can remember to make more of it lol
We are highlighting Susan Renshaw (past DT member of Sketch N Scrap) on the blog today, so hop over and check out her card design as well as other great inspiration from the design team. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
