Sketch It To Me Blog Hop

Ok all, sorry this went up late. For some reason the "auto publish" feature failed even though I'd tested it previously. GRRRRRR!!! So anyway,

Welcome to the Sketch It To Me June Blog Hop. You should have come from Ashley's blog and will head to Mandi's when you are done here. Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work. I will admit, this is my first time participating in a blog hop but I've had so much fun "attending" them in the past, that I wanted to give it a try. I hope you find a little inspiration from what you see here.

Here is the sketch for some inspiration


And here are a few projects I made using the sketch.

Papers and elements from Safari kit by Catia Cunha (scrapmall.com); Fonts: CK Bendy (creatingkeepsakes.com) and Freehand591BT (internet source unknown)

A variation of the project sketch. I used a similar photo block placement for the main block of photos and also kept papers at the bottom (but curved). I did add an extra photo but I still felt quite inspired by the original. I used the Sweet Serenity mini kit from Shabby Princess Designs.

This final project is a birthday card for my husband inspired by the sketch. I was particularly inspired by the general block of three main items (one large, two small) as well as the small rectangle and circle accents. In this case I used three scraps of patterned paper (by Provo Craft, I think) and a blank, premade card I had. Sentiment stamp by TPC Studios, ink by ColorBox, circle punch by EK Success.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed your stop here along the blog train. While you are here, check out some of my older posts... I have some links to digital freebies that I have made and I have some more in the works! Thanks for visiting and please come back again.
