Feeling Sketchy | Sketch #140

I am playing along with  Feeling Sketchy's Sketch #140......

My card measures 8.25" x 4.125" and I used stamps and inks from Stampin' Up and a border stamp from Avery Elle.  I used a square die from Spellbinders to make my windows.

Be sure to stop by Feeling Sketchy for all the challenge details and for some great inspiration!

Project Life | Week 7

I'm back with another week and as usual I have used Project 52 2016 Edition and Photoshop CS5 to create my digital layouts.  This week was another scorcher here in Perth- too hot to sit poolside for a swimming carnival that's for sure!

Here is Week 7.....

Thanks for stopping by!

Kraft Plus | March Challenge

I am playing along again at Kraft Plus and once again the challenge is a ripper!

The challenge is to use this sketch and add some houndstooth, all on a Kraft base of course.

I pulled out an older collection from Basic Grey called "Knee-highs & Bow-ties" to scrap this layout that celebrates the wonderful imagination that my youngest son possesses.

I used my Silhouette Cameo, a cut-file from the Silhouette Online Store and some stencil material to create a houndstooth patterned stencil.  I applied  Gathered Twigs Distress Ink through the stencil with an ink blending tool to give my Kraft background some subtle tone-on-tone texture.

I just love how the Kraft Plus challenges always get me to try new things- now I know how easy it is to make my own stencils with my Silhouette :-)
