May 22 Sketch - Teammates

Hello SOUS friends!
It's Rosie and a new sketch means some fun time in my scrappy room and I hope you'll be inspired to spend some time with this fabulous sketch!

As usual you can find the latest sketch in the sidebar on your right :) and here's my layout:

{supplies: cardstock-American Crafts & Bazzill; mist-Dylusions postbox red; patterned paper-Teresa Collins & Fancy Pants; embossing folders-Darice}

I immediately fell in love with the stripes in the sketch and decided to create my own. I grabbed some paper scraps and made my own stripe "stencil" and misted with red mist.

I felt that the white card stock was too bright so after the mist dried I inked the white portions with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.

To add some interest to the banners I embossed them and it didn't matter that they were too long to emboss fully as only the portions peeking out from behind the photo needed to be embossed so I ran them through twice.

I also added ink to the "Game Day" and "Teammates" die cuts to tone them down and help them "go better" with the baseballs which are an off white colour. The baseballs are all fussy cut from patterned paper.

Link us up with your version of the sketch and come back tomorrow for a new spin on the sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!

May 22 Sketch

Hi friends. Leah here today to share my sketch with you 
all and to share my interpretation of it as well. Simple design
but I am sure you'll all blow us away with what
you do with it. Not to mention the amazing team here! 
Looking forward to seeing it all. 

I made a bright and playful layout featuring a fun picture of
my oldest kiddos from last year at the boardwalk.
They sat together and rode the kids roller coaster over and over
again, it was super cute! 

Since the layout is busy with color and prints, I kept the embellishments
simple by adding stickers matching this paper collection and a few sparkly enamel dots. 

Let me also share our Top 3 from our Mothers Day
Die Cut Challenge. 
Thank you to all you lovely ladies for having shared with us. 

Have a great weekend buddies!

Hi, I'm Vivian and today I would like to share with you my version of this week's die cut challenge 
- "home sweet home". 

I do love my 3-D projects!!! I was greatly inspired by Thienly Azim, DT member at SVGCuts, and her "wonderland lamp" project. 

My project was made exclusively with files from SVGCuts and a little birdie from Joann's.

I used Graphic's 45 "Botanical Tea" patterned paper.

If you would like to know about this project, please visit my blog for more details.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Die Cut Challenge: About My Home

Hello, it's Helen here :) Today I'd love to share with you a project I created for this week Die Cut Challenge: Home Sweet Home.

This card I created using my Silhouette Cameo and the phrase is from Lori Whitlock design.

First I drew a rectangle with size 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch. Then I opened the phrase and resized it to fit inside the rectangle.

Then cut.

I added on the card base from American Crafts card. I used Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue. The finer the tip of the glue pen is the better :)

I finish the card with the red heart enamel from Close To My Heart.

You still have time to play along with us this week. Please go HERE to link up your project. Have a fun crafting day!
