Pretty Little Studio Sketch

Good Morning! I have been so busy I haven't had to scrap in a whole week. I was going through withdrawal lol! So When I saw the sketch posted over a Pretty Little Studio I knew just what I wanted to do. The other day it was just me and Hannah at home so we spent some one on one time together. We would play this little game "i get you". I would tickle her belly, toes, chin and she would laugh so hard. I realized I needed to grab some pictures. So here are some I caught.

I used some Pretty Little Studio Antique line.

I used a Pretty Little Studio bingo card and tag. The butterfly is Jillibean Soup. And the flower is from Maya Road.

I made this little banner out of the paper. And the little rub-on is Studio Calico.

I did a little handstitiching too.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sweet Peach September Layouts

Today I wanted to share a couple more layouts I made using the Sweet Peach September kit. I just love this kit! It is full of the new American Crafts Amy Tangerine line. This has to be one of my all time favorite lines.

This is my two girls Hannah and Faith. We went to the park the other day and I snapped a few picture of them. I handstitched around the outside and the zigzag connected the 2 patterned paper.

This is a fun layout out I did of Noah. He is such a ham! He said "look at me and take my picture".

I used one of my border punches. And I cut out one of the buttons from the Jillibean paper.

Love that ribbon! Do you will see some white mist? I made that!

Some fun circles to show bits and pieces of the paper.

Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful day!

Sketchy Thursdays

I was going through my pictures trying to get organized and I found this picture of my boys. I remember looking outside and seeing them just sitting in the grass enjoy the summer day. So of course I grab my camera to get a picture. I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays and some scraps. I love using up my stash! The more I use the better I feel about buying more. You will also see several Elle's Studio tags.

This is envelope and arrow I got in one of my Sweet Peach kits.

See the cute Elle's Studio tags.

Here is the sketch:

Thank you stopping and taking look!

Sketchy Thursdays and Sweet Peach

What a fun family day we had yesterday! We had two picnics one with my family and one with Brian's family. It rained all day but was still good to get together. So how was your long weekend? Today we are having fall like weather and I wouldn't mind if it stayed.

It is still raining today so after we got home from town today I decided to work on the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I had this picture of Noah. It is a little blurry but I have learned to embrace imperfection. I won't get this picture back so I might as well use it. I love how he has his hands on his hips. I used Bella Blvd "Mr.Boy" and "Midterm".

I doodled on this cute tag and layered it with a sheet from the "Sophisticates" line.

I also doodled on the banner and added my own title beside it "little" Dude.

I layer some of the chipboard and doodled around them.

Here is the sketch I used.

here is a layout I worked on Sunday evening using the Sweet Peach September kit. I have a thing for circles lately. And I love the white mist I made.

I decided to put the title on the circle. I love the those cute Jillibean stickers sayings.

I'm in love with this ribbon!

Cards on Sunday

I was playing around with some leftover pieces from the September Sweet Peach kit and created these cards. I don't make cards that often but do enjoy making them when I finally sit down to make one.

For this card I used the pretty fabric flowers from Basic Grey. The stems are actually made from the pretty stripe at the bottom of on of the patterned papers from American Crafts. I love that companies started making those strips useful. And the sentiment is from a tag from Elle's Studio. And the paper is from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine line.

Close up:

This card has a American Crafts and a little Jillibean Soup on it. I connected the pinkish paper with the butterflies. And the alpha is from Prima. I love those cute buttons on the Jillibean Soup paper.

Side view:

Thank you for looking!
