A fun sketch with lots of strips of paper; a great sketch to use up your scraps!

Strike 'Em Out!

Kristii has taken the multiple photos from the sketch and used 3 of them as mini photos and then included 3 more larger photos instead of her journaling space. I love that Kristii has incorporated the woven strips into her layout too. Stunning masculine page Kristii!

Nature's Beauty

Julie has also altered the photo aspect of this sketch to include one large photo on her layout. I love that she's used a large gemstone flourish that over laps her large photo. Stunning page Julie!

May Sketch: 12x12

A really simple 12x12 sketch for you today....

by Tonya

For this pretty layout, Tonya has taken the photo spaces from the sketch and melted them into two. She has simplified her design and decided to focus on her photos instead of including any journaling. I love that she used the pretty vine ribbon as her strip element from the sketch. Wonderful page Tonya!

Sneaking Kisses
by Cherie

For this super cute page by Cherie, she's taken the journaling aspect of the sketch and pushed it up. Like Tonya, she has also combined the 4 photos from the sketch design and made it 2 to accommodate her larger sized photos. Gorgeous page Cherie!

Guest Designer: Tracy Schultz

Today I'd like to introduce you to our May Guest Card Designer, Tracy Schultz.

Tracy Schultz
Tracy's blog:

My name is Tracy Schultz and I live in Hamburg, New York (a suburb of Buffalo). I'm an IT specialist by day and crafter by night. If I'm not making cards, learning how to scrapbook, or making a pair of earrings, then you can usually find me on the volleyball court spiking up a storm or in my gardens. I've been married to my husband for three wonderful years and we have a pet cockatiel and one dozen angry fish.

Here's a fun card sketch for you today:

Tracy Schultz

Isn't Tracy's card cute? I love the fun patterned papers that she used and that adorable cute little bee is just too cute! Great card Tracy!

Stay tuned for more of Tracy's work later this month.

May Sketch: 8.5x11

Here's a sketch for all those wallet photos....

Slip Sliding Away!
by Wendy

I love that Wendy has used the cascade of photos and played up a sequence of photos to tell her story. Shes taken the rather simple rectangle and made it much more decorative by using some fun shaped papers. Stunning page Wendy!

They Create Happy Ness
by Abbie

For Abbie's page, she has taken the 4 photos from the sketch and minimized it to three to get a little larger photo on her page. I love her little jumble of "ha ha's" to simulate the laughter of her children together. Wonderful page Abbie!
