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:
This is the lovely sketch designed by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap:

Hello! Today I have some pretty exciting news to share – I had the opportunity to be the guest artist on Shimelle’s blog.
I created a scrapbook layout with the third challenge 03: Scrapbook with autumnal colours.
Here is a sneak close up shots where I actually included real leaves I collected.
It was a really fun page to make and loved how it turned out. To check out the full layout, head over to Shimelle’s blog for more details. Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
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!
Hello! Hope everyone had an enjoyable “Card Making Day” last weekend. Today I have a simple card to share. It’s inspired by a sketch designed by Mandy on Sketch N Scrap.
I created a birthday card –
I used patterned papers from Shimelle True Stories and diecut a colorful piece with my stitched rectangle die. I trimmed the balloon card from the cut apart sheet and stamped a birthday sentiment on it with Waffle Flower stamp lotus set.
A really quick and easy card and super fun birthday card that is suitable for everyone. Hop over to Sketch N Scrap and check out more inspiration from the design team. Hope you will join us and play along with our sketches. We would love to see your creations.
Hello! It’s the first of the month of October, it’s so nice to feel the autumn air! Today I have a layout to share inspired by a sketch designed by Heather on Sketch N Scrap.
I created this layout with photos of the lavender farm.
I actually wrote a lot of journaling for this layout – mostly about what I love about lavender and what you can use it for. I also created a hidden journaling on a tag to write more of my experience on the farm. I took a piece of rectangle patterned paper with a heart on it, I put a strip of the bottom and it holds my tag really well.
I added some diecuts from Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills and since the colors were the olive green, I mixed up some paint splatters that match and splatter away and colored my heart to add color.
I added some hand stitching, it’s actually a metallic purple thread but somehow it was a little thin so I couldn’t thread it to my sewing machine. It breaks really easy so that’s why I need to hand stitch it.
I hope you will stop by Sketch N Scrap blog and check out what the other design team members created! Today is also World Card Making Day, so check out the Sketch N Scrap Facebook for fun challenges and inspiration.

Hello! I realised I didn’t get to blog about some of the layouts I created. Sometimes I managed to share in my Instagram or Facebook. But I try.. anyways..
Today I wanted to share a layout using some diecuts and stitching inspired by a sketch on Stuck?! Sketches. It’s the September 1st 2016 sketch –
I created this fun colorful ‘mixed media layout’ – well maybe not mixed media if you consider splatters lol
I managed to add some stamping to the background (Heidi Swapp Script background stamp). I always feel some sense of accomplishment if I use a stamp on a layout. Really.
After the patterned papers were adhered, I machine stitched the borders for interest. Then I diecut the wreath from Clique Kits (it was a free cutfile) and it’s so pretty! I backed the leaves with some scraps from Dear Lizzy Documentary collection that was in the olive green color. So I mixed up some olive green splatters from my acrylic inks and splatter away. Then I found diecuts from Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills had some pretty fun diecuts and puffy stickers that matched my color scheme pretty well. I also added the puffy hearts from Shimelle collection.
I didn’t add any journaling, so I added the Tim Holtz stickers to express some of my emotions. The small talk sticker book from Tim Holtz is really fun and has a lot of sayings I want to convey in my layouts.
