Quick Craft Tips - June Sketch-n-Color

Hello my peeps! It has been FOR-EV-ERRR since I have scrapped and it made it so much easier to have a sketch and color scheme to start me off! So... here is what I made for the blog and I've also got a "mostly" start to finish video of my process. I changed the embellishments so many times that I ended up doing it off camera... LOL! See... ALL of us have those kinda days!

Here is the reminder of what the sketch looks like:
The colors and flowery nature of Mistra's sketch didn't exactly work for this picture of my grandson but I added some denim and replaced the flowers with stars cut using Spellbinder's dies and it all worked out.

The stars were cut with Spellbinder's Stars Five set
 The denim is from my daughter's Etsy shop: BlueGeneBaby

 The sparkle is my newly renamed glitter: Twinkle Dust (formerly FairyDust)

 I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word "Moments", used a labeler for the "Quiet" and mini stamps from Michael's for the "with grammy."

I doodled around the edges of the stars and the different layers. I used 3D Foam Squares to add dimension and layers with the stars.

  1. Welcome back.. love the layout and thanks for the inspiration :-)!

  2. Awwwww that's so cute Donna!

    I like using stars for 'boy' pages where there's flowers drawn... still keeps the circular look our eyes seem to like!

    Loving how you have used the cardstock through the label-er... adding that to my 'gotta do' list!
