Card Sketch #32

I'm back with you today to showcase our last sketch of the month at Sketch N Scrap which just happens to be a card sketch by yours truly!  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card based on the sketch:
Supplies Used:  Cardstock: Stampin Up whisper white and chocolate chip; Patterned paper: Jillibean
Soup Dutch Mustard; embossing folder: Stampin Up; sticker: Pebbles Inc; pearls: Queen &Co.

I love how this turned out, these colors are so pretty together and scream end of summer! I have just scraps from this Jillibean Soup Dutch Mustard line and have them all on my desk to make some pretty cards with. I don't want to throw out even a small scrap, it's to pretty to waste!  So look for some other cards coming soon using the same line...who knows I may even be able to eek out another layout lol!  I hope you will find time between now and the 31st of August to play along with us at Sketch N Scrap!  This month Lissa one of our awesome DT members is sponsoring us!  Check out her blog Mightycrafty  she is giving away a $20 gift certificate to and she is also an Origami Owl consultant and has another awesome giveaway on her blog for that, so make sure and play along for a chance to win!!!!  Have a wonderful hump day friends!

Two fun sketches!

Wow, I can't believe it is August already!  Summer is almost over, the marching band started camp yesterday so that means school will be starting shortly (heck it feels like it is already started!) I have been busy in my craft room creating and I know that these first two sketches of August will give you some incentive to find a little bit of time this week to spend in your craft room too!  
Here is the first sketch #62 by me:

And here is my layout based on the sketch:
 Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee, Echo Park, cardstock: Stampin Up; Stickers: Happy
Camper by Echo Park, journal spot sticker by KI Memories; washi tape: Queen & Co.; letters: Jillibean Soup

Here is the second sketch by Kelly, co-owner of Sketch N Scrap:

Here is my card based on the sketch:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin Up whisper white; washi tape: Queen & Co; Card:
Simple Stories Homespun collection; letter stickers and patterned paper: Simple Stories
Homespun Collection; ink: real red by Stampin Up; word stamp (friend) Stampin Up

I love the way both my layout and card turned out using these sketches!  I will say this is one of the fastest cards I have made in awhile! I love using up my Project Life type cards that come with so many collections on cards as I often use up all the paper before the cards so I just have them sitting around in my scraps drawer, I plan to dig through my drawer and finish off my Homespun collection (all that is left really is some of these cards and maybe a few scraps!!!) this weekend by replicating this card with the different cards I have left in my scrap drawer! Good luck getting some crafty time this week friends and make sure and share your creations with us at Sketch N Scrap to be eligible for our randomly drawn August prize which is a $20 gift certificate to sponsored by our one and only Lissa Mitchell at:
