SNS Layout #183

Last year we went to Florida to see my in-laws for Thanksgiving, sounds terrible doesn't it? Take me back!!!

I love going to my in-laws anytime but going in November is a real treat. We were lucky enough to be able to go out on a date-night while we were there. 

The last time we went we tried to catch a sunset and wouldn't you know it we had a cloudy day!  This time around we had a gorgeous night. It may have been even sweeter because we knew the weather back in Northern Illinois was insane! I believe we got over a foot of snow and it was so COLD on top of that. We knew we should enjoy every moment of this beautiful evening away.

I used up some old thickers and was impressed that I only had to piece together the "e" and the "t's" with a C+L and an F. I am not sure if you can see it but I did some faux stitching up top as well as in the lower right hand corner.

Here is my stitching. I added some starfish and some gold nuggets into the circles.

Just another view. I really adore how each it was to use Sketch #183 to capture this special night.

Here is the sketch I used SNS #183 we would love to have you show us what you have come up with using this or one of our other sketches featured this month.

Come and see us soon!

SNS Card Sketch #151

Hello Dear Readers Happy August! Yes, I actually said August!! Can you believe it is already August I don't know about you but in our neck of the woods (Northern Illinois) we wait and wait and wait for summer and then it gets started and you blink and it is August and you are prepping for school to start back up. Yikes

Anyway, I hope you are having a fun summer. Ours has been busier than ever and we have made a lot of memories that I will be able to scrapbook soon. In the mean time I have been making cards. Some of them have been very elaborate and some of them have been quick and simple.

Today I am sharing a simple monochromatic card that I made using Sketch #151

I have had this stamp set for a very long time. Like many of them I had to have it! I have used it one in this project. One of my goals is to start using them. If I can't figure out why I loved it enough to buy it I need to pass it on, sell it, donate it, something rather than letting it sit in my drawer.

Cardstock - White Daisy, Raspberry
Ink - Raspberry, Charcole
Stamps - So Many Smiles
Other - Hot Pink Crystal Gems

SNS Card Sketch #150

Have you noticed we have a new format for our online monthly crops yet? We now have a new Sketch N Scrap's Monthly Facebook Challenges Group this group is replacing our old crop events allowing us to manage entries and be more interactive. We hope you can join us.

Here is a card I made using the card sketch from earlier this month SNS Card Sketch #150. I tried something new and only colored in the heart and the hair clip on the little girl and love the way it looked. I got those cute little wooden accents and those papers in a swap that I was recently in. They were all so adorable and went so well together.

Chemistry is fun!  Last year we went to a Chemistry Demonstration at NIU. They did all sorts of fun things for us on the stage these demos involved Balloons, Liquids, Fruit, Race-cars, Fire, and Maizies favorite part Ice Cream. When I saw this sketch I knew it would be perfect for this fun event. Here is how my page turned out. 

We would LOVE to see what you come up with using Sketch #181 over at the Sketch N Scrap blog

SNS Card Sketch #149

Well I have a cute card share for you today using a versatile sketch that i see myself using again and again. I was invited to a baby shower for one of my daughters oldest friends (months ago?) and had all sorts of ideas on what to make. I happened to not be able to make it so my daughter asked me if I was going to stop by. I said, I can but why? She said to drop off that gift...wait what?!?!

You would think that I know better by now to procrastinate! 

  1. delay or postpone action; put off doing something.

Nope I am not sure I will ever sketch to the rescue.

I made up this quick card using that adorable paper pack from my Hello card

Then I had to figure out what in the world I was going to make her...I decided to make up some Holiday Onsies that she can use as the holidays approach. Now had I thought this through a lot more I could have made these shirts on different color shirts but a procrastinator can only do so much when they hardly have any time!!! Anyway for the most part I like how they turned out (spoiler alert - she loved them). 

Here is another angle on the card you can see I popped the hearts up and added some bling.

So here is the adorable Sketch #149 we would LOVE to see what you do with it...ehem...sooner rather than later.

SNS Card Sketch #148 - Hello

Hello I hope you had a lovely spring ours was WET tomorrow is the first day of summer. Do you have any fun plans? We are planning on a lot of camping adventures this year.

Today I thought I would share this little card with you - I won this cute little 6" x 8" paper pad somewhere and completely for got I had it until a few days ago. As I was flipping through it I noticed how pretty the papers where and have been wanting to make a card with it ever since.

I added a few dies and some gems and ended up with a sweet quick card with zero stamping.

I always like to add some coordinating papers inside the card.

 I colored the hello with my copics and rolled that little flower with an old MFT die that I got many moons ago at a craft show.

We would love to see what you come up with using this adorable sketch from Sketch N Scrap, Card Sketch #148

Here is that paper pad I was talking about up above.
