girls **SOUS**

Well Happy Friday everyone!!! First I have some news! I have been asked by Stuck on U Sketches to become part of their Design Team. I am so excited, their team is full of so many wonderfully talented designers and the sketches are amazing. So here is the first sketch that I got to work with…it is by Liz Qualman. I enjoyed the sketch so much I made a layout and a card for it.


First up ..the layout. It is called “girls” ( I need help with titles I know I am terrible with them, hehe ) and the photo is my two daughters. I used lots of Prima papers and goodies for this layout. I started by distressing most of the layers and inking them.

I tucked some Dusty Attic snow flakes, vines and chicken wire into the flower clusters.


In the top corner you can see all the layers and more DA tucked into the smaller cluster.

Ok so when I saw the sketch I was worried…I do not make good looking banners, so the search was on for a style for one.  I remembered that Tina had a great banner and I sent her a message that I was going to use that banner as a template for mine…here is the link to her blog. She is a super talented girl. I curled some paper on each end of the banner and used lots of inks on it and topped it off with some ribbon.

Next up is the little card that I made….also based on the same sketch. I used some of my favourite Glitz papers and lots of other goodies here. I love the machine stitching and the deep green seam binding and bow.


Ok well that is it J I had a great time working on both of these projects. Don’t forget to head on over to SOUS for tonnes of inspiration. We would all love to see your interpretation of this sketch. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
