Sad News at SLS!

Today, Sassy Lil' Sketches shared some news on their blog. They announced that they are closing! I'll be sad to see them go. I was always inspired by Cherie's sketches! SLS always felt a little bit like home since I was on their very first DT team, which also happened to be my very first DT experience! It was a wonderful team to work with! Katie and Cherie are super nice!

On a happier note, they are going out with a bang! They are having a big send off, with all 8 sketches of the month being released between October 2nd and October 9th. You'll have until October 23rd to complete the sketches, and the winners will be announced the next day. You can check the full schedule
here on the blog. You even get an extra entry if you decide to "switch it up", like I've been doing for the past three months!

And what can you win? How about a
SLS sketch e-book for every sketch revealed! That's right, there will be 8 e-books given out! Each are packed full with more than 70 wonderful sketches! That's definitely worth scrapping for!

So check out the
Sassy Lil' Sketches blog everyday starting Monday, and stop by here again on the 6th for my reveal!

Happy scrapping!


(And enjoy the nice fall weather while you still can! My kitties sure are! ;)

Switch It Up Saturday at Sassy Lil' Sketches!

Hi there!

Today's my reveal at the Sassy Lil' Sketches Switch It Up Saturday! Here is this week's fun sketch:

And here's my version: (click on the photo for a larger view)

I made a double page layout with the sketch. I changed the size and number of photos, I moved the title on top, used pompom trim instead of the banner, and used fewer strips of patterned paper on the bottom. The pictures are from our trip to the coast of Maine this summer. The tile means "Chatouille in the Land of Lobsters". (And yes, I do travel with a stuffed animal... he's my trip mascot and always gets some souvenir shots! lol!) Hope you'll pop on over the Sassy Lil' Sketches blog and join us for a chance to win a prize!

Happy scrapping!


New Sketches and New Layouts


There are new sketches up at
Sassy Lil' Sketches!

This is the sketch I worked on this month. Love the multi-photos and the strips of paper on the bottom! You'll get to see how I switched up my layout on Saturday!

These are the two other sketches that were released this month.

And don't forget the card sketches either, released every Thursdays!

Here's my last layout, a double page about my dad's family, to go into my parents' 50th anniversary album. It's based on
this sketch by Amy Alvis from 4x6 Photo Sketch Blog.

I stamped on thin cork then cut out the images to make custom embellies. I wanted something masculine looking that added texture. I also used cork to mat part of the title, to make it stand out more. I cut out felt triangles and stamped a polka dot pattern on two of them, then glued all three on a piece of jute twine. I like the texture it adds.

Don't forget to check back in a few days for my "Switch It Up Saturday" at
Sassy Lil' Sketches!

Happy scrapping!
