My Creative Scrapbook - April

If you've been following my blog you know that Stuck?!Sketches is no more but the good news is that Laura's sketches are being profiled over at My Creative Scrapbook. While they don't offer InLink as a sharing feature I have joined their FB Group and plan to share there.

So Sorry

The idea for this card came from Pinterest and Debby Hughes at Lime Doodle Design. Sympathy cards can be so hard to make so any inspiration is much appreciated.

Serendipity Sketch - April 2018

Last week my brother and his kids went to see the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas. As you can see they were in the splash zone and got to meet one of the performers after the show. The basis for this layout is April's sketch from Miyuchi over at Scrapbook.com.

Easter - Butterfly Variations

I made these three cards using the exact same techniques, just different colors. I started by clear embossing the flower images on water color paper. I then washed each card with a mixture of colors. The butterfly was stamped on vellum and colored on the back with markers.

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Mar) - Adventures

For this month's first layout for Stuck?!Sketches I used three more photos from our ride last month in Palm Springs. I layered five circles in the background but ultimately put a piece of vellum over them as it was too dark and distracting.

Stuck?! Layout #3 (Feb) - Le Tour

A few weeks ago we participated in the Tour de Palm Springs, an annual charity ride that we've been doing for 3 years. The weather was absolutely perfect as was the company. This is my third layout for the month for Stuck?!Sketches.

Stuck? Layout #2 (Feb) - Le Ride

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to meet Phil Keoghan from the Amazing Race after a screening of his film "Le Ride". Phil rode the 1928 route of the Tour de France on a vintage bicycle over the course of 26 days. I followed this month's second sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Feb) - Fly Eagles Fly

I deviated slightly from this month's sketch from Stuck?!Sketches by using only one photo instead of two so I could preserve the skyline in the background. The Eagles title came from PNG Clipart and the skyline came from PinArt.

Serendipity Sketch - January 2018

For Christmas we all got together and gave my niece and nephew ski lessons at Massanutten Resort in Virginia. Here they are riding up in the ski lift. For this layout I followed January's sketch from Miyuchi. The papers are from SU and called Soho Subway.

Stuck?! Layout #2 (Jan) - Besties

Over the holidays I had a chance to visit with my college roommate. We took two quick selfies in the freezing cold that I thought went perfectly with the 2nd sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. I also wanted to give a shout out to all those wonderful gals that comment on my layouts every month, thank you!

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Jan) - Reva

Late last year we purchased some property out of State and I thought these photos worked well with the Stuck?! Sketches layout for January. The background paper is from a retired set called "My Sweet Pea" from SU.

Stuck?! Layout #2 (Dec) - Selfies

For this month's second sketch from Stuck?! Sketches I wanted to highlight my practice selfies to showcase what I've been learning from Tiffany Lowder's Selfies 101 class. I took these pictures while working on my Christmas cards. Ugh! I can't believe I'm showing these. :)

Serendipity Sketch - October 2017

I've been following "Miyuchi" on scrapbook.com for several months and I really love her clean and simple sketches. When I saw these photos I knew they would be perfect for this sketch. The inspiration for the papers came from the clothing.

Stuck?! Layout #1 (Nov) - Halloween

Here is a fun layout that I did for Stuck?!Sketches' first layout of the month. I'm not quite sure where you buy a panda head or what it means to be a taco on taco Tuesday but it's all good and most of all...FUN!

Stuck?! Layout #2 (Oct) - Boston

For this month's second sketch from Stuck?!Sketches, I used a digital image of a football player that I found on the internet and reduced the opacity so it blended into the paint and paint splatter in the background. The papers are from SU.
