February Sketch: 12 x 12

Here's a page sketch that will have you in stitches....

Everyday Moments
by Cherie

I love how Cherie has taken the sketch and stretched things a little. She also added some beautiful stickers and embellishments to her page to compliment her theme of "love". Gorgeous page Cherie!

Peek While Asleep
by Jana P.

I love that Jana has used every possible square to put her photos in her design! She's also taken the stitched details from the sketch and used ribbon instead! Super cute page Jana!

February Sketch: 8.5 x 11

Here's a sketch using photos overlapping a larger one....

Four Months
by Nicole

Nicole has adapted the sketch by shortening the large photo and combining the 3 mini photos into two photos. Love Nicole's interpretation of this sketch!

In the Spotlight
by Julie

Julie has taken the large photo from the sketch and made it into a piece of pretty patterned paper to place her row of wallet sized photos on. Beautiful use of the sketch Julie!

by Tonya

Tonya has taken the entire sketch and rotated it in a clockwise spin and created her page in this manner. Great use of a sketch Tonya!

Thanks Nicole, Julie and Tonya for three beautiful uses of this simple 8.5x11 page sketch!

February Sketch: Square Card

Here's a square card sketch for you today....

Spring Fever
by Dawne

I love how Dawne has taken the main rectangle shape on the card front and used a circular element instead. She's also included some pretty ruffled ribbon where the stitching element is on the card sketch. Stunning card Dawne!


So Sketchy's Been Spotted!

So Sketchy has been spotted over at Skrap N'Chat!

Tracey S. over at Skrap N'Chat asked if So Sketchy! would be a part of their first sketch challenge and so a special sketch was designed especially for them!

Here is some of the work that the Skrap N'Chat members created using their sketch:

February Sketch: 8.5 x 11

Another 8.5 x 11 sketch today....

by Julie

I love the way Julie has taken the 8.5x11 sketch design and basically dropped it right on a 12x12 page instead of stretching the sketch. I love how she's used the two rectangles at the bottom of the photo and developed one into her journaling spot. Gorgeous page Julie!

February Sketch: Shaped Card

A circle shaped card for you today!

by Leah

I love how Leah has used one of the circles to add her entire card greeting to! I love that she's mixed up the circle sizes too! Such a pretty card Leah!

Happy Valentine's and a Sketch!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

"For a shield from the storm, for a friend,
for a love to keep me safe and warm...
I turn to you.
For the strength to be strong, for the will to carry on...
for everything you do, for everything that's true,
I turn to you."
-Christina Aguilera (I Turn to You)

Here's a circular sketch for you today...

by Tonya

I thought this beautiful page by Tonya was an appropriate page to display today! Tonya has taken the 4 photo places from the sketch and melted them into one large photo. She's also taken the plain circular edge and added some curve appeal with some lovely scallops. Gorgeous page Tonya!

February Sketch: 12 x 12

A very simple, single photo sketch....

Frozen Fun
by Jana P.

I love how Jana has taken the single strip of paper under the title on the sketch and punched out a whole series of pretty circle shapes for her title bed. She's also adapted the sketch with no obvious journaling area and journaling all around the boarder of her page. An obvious winter beauty Jana!

February Sketch: 8.5 x 11

Here's an 8.5x11 sketch for today...

Little Trike
by Nicole

Nicole has taken this 3 photo sketch and expanded it to include 5 photos of her sweet little boy! By expanding it, she's taken the journaling area from the sketch and swapped it with her title space. A great way how to use a 8.5x11 sketch on a 12x12 page! Super cute page Nicole!

February Sketch: Rectangular Card

Here's a very simple rectangular card sketch for you today....

I'm Praying For You
by Melanie

Now Melanie not only has designed a very simple card or so she makes you think... but she's created an interactive card!

To reveal her card's greeting, the second butterfly is removable! It's simply held on by a BasicGrey magnet button embedded in both her butterfly and her card. What a creative and beautiful card Melanie!

Get your card entries in for your chance to win Jenn's beautiful "This Kiss" kit today! Good luck to everyone who submits for the "This Kiss" Contest!

February Sketch: 12 x 12

Here's a sketch with a real focus on lots of photos.....

by Abbie

I love how Abbie has used the shapes from the sketch to get all of her photos and enough space for journaling on her page. I love she's grounded her photos with kraft paper and added additional patterned papers to pull in the colours of her photos. Gorgeous page Abbie!

Just a reminder.... tomorrow is the LAST day for entries for the"This Kiss" contest! You could win the gorgeous digital kit by Jennifer Balding! Check out the details posted on the right hand side of the blog. Good luck!
