Christmas Day - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday DT Reveal

Well we are just around the corner to the beginning of a new month....which means it is time for the ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Design Team reveal of a double layout.

The new sketch is just perfect for scrapping lots of photos in one layout!!! Perfect for a family gathering at Christmas.

Here is my layout....

I managed to include a photo of everyone who attended Christmas at our home last year!
We are truly blessed!!!

And here is each page close up... 

My DH didn't care for his photo when I showed him my layout, but that's what happens when you are a ham for the camera.....I wouldn't have him any other way!

My Mom plays Santa every year and hands out the gifts!

And here are some of the squares close up.....

I stitched around the squares that didn't have photos...just like stitching in the ditch on a quilt. That is what this sketch screamed to the quilter in me.

Lots of matching die cuts with this fabulous Crate Paper line.

Some Studio Calico wood veneer trees.

And what's a cold winter's day with out a cup of hot cocoa?

And here is Laura's fabulous sketch.....

Background paper - Simple Stories, Thickers & AC Twine.

Be sure to play along and link up your layouts before the 29th of December for a chance at a fabulous prize.

I was also inspired by the Anything Goes Challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.

Lil' Pumpkin -ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A - DT Reveal

The middle of the month has rolled around already.....time for the ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A Design Team Reveal.

Here is my layout.....

Every year I take pictures of Mason with the pumpkins on display at the Fair. He is so darned sweet, he actually just climbed up on the display and waited for his picture to be taken!

I just loved this came together so easily and quickly! I always enjoy circle shapes on a layout.

I stiched around the edge of the layout with my sewing machine and stamped the circles with Tim Holtz ink - Black Soot and Stampin Up stamp.

Added a few buttons from my stash with Darice twine tied in different ways.

I used AC Cardstock, Carta Bella papers and embellies, October Afternoon Pillow Puff stickers.

Here is Laura's fabulous sketch.

Be sure to play along and link up your layouts by the end of November for a chance at a wonderful prize.

I was also inspired by S.W.A.T. Scrap Warriors Drill #43 mood board.

And Beyond Grey Challenges #62 - What do I love about Fall? Family time at the Burford Fall Fair!!

And ColorQ Challenges #267

Good Times - 123 Challenge Blog - Guest Designer

Happy Monday everyone....I am thrilled to announce that I was chosen to be a Guest Designer at the 123 Challenge Blog for a layout that I created for their August Challenge.

The Challenge is to use the colour copper, the word "good" and stars. I had just taken some fun fall leaf pictures, so I used one "good" shot for my layout.

I used Carta Bella - A Perfect Autumn papers and AC cardstock as my base.

I did some masking with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Rusty Hinge and Antiqued Bronze to capture the copper colour. I then used Tim Holtz Star stencil and medium and layered up the stars. Once it dried the medium took on the copper colour from behind. I  love this effect. The copper clips were from my stash and I attached them with Tim Holtz Tiny Tackers.

I added a few little star brads from my stash to add some dimension.

I layered up some little banners adding an October Afternoon Pillow Puff. The copper eyelets are from my "daughter-in-laws" stash. Thanks Ash!

The Good Times title finishes it off with Thickers.

A little strip of fall coloured washi tape from my stash.

Here is the Challenge board over at 123 Challenge Blog.

I would like to express my thanks to the ladies at 123 Challenge Blog for this opportunity!!!

Stay Crafty!!!
