**Stuck On U Sketches March 27 Sketch Reveal**

Hello and thanks for joing me for the latest Stuck On U Sketches sketch reveal.
There is sooo much inspiration in this fabulous sketch by Leah Schaeffer!

{Patterned paper, die cut pages, overlay, brads, chipboard, stickers-Simple Stories "Good Day Sunshine"; paper clip Simple Stories "I Am"; ledger paper-unknown; grey print-Studio Calico Basics; card stock-Bazzill}

I loved the lined paper in the sketch and found this ledger pattern in my stash, I placed it on a piece of Bazzill dotted card stock. It was great to pull out a punch I haven't used in awhile, that's the EK Success notebook edge punch. The die cut page I used for the layout title is one of the SN@P die cut pages in the Good Day Sunshine collection along with the woodgrain pattern.
This 'holepunched' paper is also a die cut page from the same collection. You have a good look at the overlay I used with the hexagons layered over the woodgrain page.
I handcut a tag to hold my journaling and finished it off with a brad. The also punched the edge on the tag which creates a visual triangle with the other punched edges.

I hope you'll find some time to give this sketch a try and link it up at SOUS!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Scrap Shotz March 2014 Kit Projects Reveal

Well the most consistent thing about my blogging has been it's IN-consistency ;)). Not for a lack of projects to post though and I'd like to share with you my projects created for the Scrap Shotz March 2015 kit featuring Simple Stories 'I AM'. 

I Am

There are some fun gold elements in this kit like the gold photo sticker on this photo. You get photo stickers in gold, black and white in the kit. I created a pocket behind the photo to hold the 'I Am' journal card.

Here and Now

I cut apart the words from the 4x6 card and popped up 3 of them for visual interest. I'm not super thrilled with the stenciled borders, I like that Tim Holtz stencil but I completely missed the mard on the color.

Grad Card

Super easy card to make, just trimmed the 3x4 card from the kit, rounded the corners, adhered to the embossed background and added the sentiment with kit alphas.

Thank You Card

Another easy card, placed a kit sticker on a 3x4 card and added a couple of kit chipboard hearts.

Birthday Cards

There are a bunch of 4x6 and 3x4 cards that only have to be cut from the 12x12 sheets making it super simple to create these cards.

I created this with one piece of patterned paper only which was so easy since one side of this paper had a pre-printed top and bottom border along with the word block on the right side of this page. The bird is fussy cut from it's printed position on this paper and then popped it up in the same spot.

The coral flower was orginally blue, I changed the color with Mr. Huey's Mist in Sunset and Boss Lady.

This layout features the photo stickers in black. I used them as elements of this grid design and added some sparkle to the wood veneer with Bo Bunny Gold Glitter paste.

I used my craft knife to slice along the left side of the heart and then slid the photo underneath. Some kit chipboard, stickers and the large flower finish it off.

I Am Loving Life
My favorite part of this layout is the cascading banners on the bottom left and the title is another 3x4 card from the kit. This was based on our design team sketch.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and see my projects, I really appreciate it!
