Birthday Bash Bingo - COMING SOON

You guys! Sketch N Scrap is turning 7! I can't even believe it has been up and running for so many years. That is so many fantastic sketches and so much inspiration all rolled into one place!

To celebrate SNS 7th birthday we are pulling out all the stops and celebrating all month long with a super fun game of scrappy BINGO!

There is going to be a closed group on Facebook to play BINGO so make sure you like our Sketch N Scrap Facebook Page so you will be in the loop. All of this fun will be starting on May 1st and Bingo Hall will open up on April 30 so we can all get to know one another and be ready to go with the first challenge which will launch on May 1st.

Play along all month long and make sure to let us know when you have a bingo....or even a black out!

I am shooting for a bingo black out and will be doing a weekly wrap up on Saturdays with all I was able to get done each week.

Good luck and we hope to see you there!

SNS Layout Sketch #175

This past summer two of my girls went on the trip of a lifetime with their grandma to Hawaii. I have not really scrapbooked any of the photos yet but when I saw this sketch I came up with an idea for one that they sent me of them at a luau. 

Here is a close up of the island and the flowers. I also have a little x on the island they were on. 

I did something I have not done if forever and that is journal with a white pen. I knew exactly how I wanted this layout to look and had to go and purchase a new pen just so I could complete this one. I do love how it turned out. 

Here is the original sketch, I hope you can join us over at Sketch n Scrap. We would love to see what you came up with.

H2H Weather - April Calendar

Today over at Heart2Heart we are doing a "Weather" or Not challenge. April Showers bring May Flowers...right?? We had such a brutal winter this past season and so I was so ready for spring this year. 

At the beginning of the year I decided I wanted to scrapbook a calendar page each month and then if I found events or fun things throughout the month I wanted to do a page on I would do that. so far it is going good and I have been having a lot of fun with it. I thought this months challenge for H2H would be perfect since April Showers bring May Flowers.

I only have a couple photos on it now because the month just started. I was lucky enough to receive a cannon selphy for Christmas and I have the ability to print little photos that fit into my calendar pages. I also will print out some larger ones that are my favorites.

Here is a close up of the title

and the pages by themselves

This month my calendar features the beautiful Feels Like Home paper kit from Close to my Heart. Please make sure you show us what you come up with for the Weather Challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart blog. Also take some time to check out what the other designers came up with.

SNS Card Sketch #143

Hi everyone back again sharing another card with you. I was making a project and came across this cute cut in Cricut Design Space. My mom got remarried last year and just had her first anniversary. I thought this image would just make the cutest anniversary card and so I used it with this fun sketch from Sketch n Scrap.

We would love to see how you use the sketch so please join us over at the Sketch n Scrap blog.

H2H Challenge - You are my sunshine

Today over at Heart2Heart we are doing a color challenge.  Emerald, Smoothie, Canary, Peach, and Glacier.

Here is what I came up with.  

I ended up using Smoothie, Canary, Peach and Glacier for my card. Here is another look.

Don't you love the little hearts? They are a puffy sticker. When I was little I had a sticker collection featuring puffy stickers. We stuck them to sandwich baggies and would trade them at recess in grade school. How I wish I still had that.

Here is a peek at the inside. 

Does this paper look familiar? I have exciting news for you! Close to my Heart has a new special this month called Bring Back My Pack and they brought one of my favorite papers back Zoe from 2015. They have updated to colors and have a brand new coordinating 12 x 12 sticker sheet.

We would love to see what you come up with over at the Heart 2 Heart Blog and be sure to check out what the other designers did this week. See you soon!
