Sketch challenge at Paper Craft Planet!

Howdy folks,

Come join us on this nice sunny day!

I often wonder if a simple open layout is easier to create with or a well-defined layout easier. Personally, I like working with a simple one and let my imagination take me when I’m playing with papers or embellishments.

Here is my version:

The card features home made washi tape and Stampendous stamps. As I finished this card, I wondered if I could use a card layout for a scrapbook layout..I flipped the sketch around for this one and here is my attempt:

The beautiful patterned paper with the banners already printed on is from My Mind’s Eye and I love that a simple layout allows me to see most of my papers too.

There you have it – 1 sketch, 2 different ways. How would you like to use your sketch?


Congratulations Morehead

Good morning friends,

Have you ever done some Spring cleaning and realize there are tons of dies, inks, supplies that you have not used in a while? Guilty here!!

I found my Papertrey Ink cupcake die that was collecting dust so I decided to use it for something other than a birthday card. I used it for a wedding card instead – pairing it with the fairly new Crafter’s Companion Morehead Collection. They are such an adorable little boy and girl pair and I cannot get enough of them! It’s right here:

I used the Marriage stamp set in that collection and colored them sparingly with Spectrum Noir markers. I left most of their clothes uncolored with the exception of creating shadow and folds. Took me a while to let go of the idea that I had to color every single part of an image!

Here are the markers I did used:

  • Hair: GB3, GB4, GB5
  • Skin: FS2, FS3, PP1
  • Pinks: PP3, PP4, PP5, PP6
  • Green (leaves): DG3
  • Shadow (on clothes): BG1

Patterned paper and sentiment sticker are from Momenta. Love these really convenient sentiment stickers!
