~Giggly Girls~ SOUS!

Hello fellow scrappers! Its reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches, and Spring is in the air!  I am so glad you stopped by to see the lovely original sketch we were given to work with, and I sure hope you will give it a go and join in on all the FUN!!!!  I used my March Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  Let me tell you, have I ever enjoyed working with this kit! It is so jam packed full of goodies!

I took this photo of my great nieces this past summer at a family wedding shower for my daughter. These girls are just too cute for words!

Here is the awesome sketch I had so much fun working with.

This is a close up of the flower cluster I made, some of the flowers came with the kit, and the pink and blue flower with the pearl center are flowers I made with a new die I got from Cheery Lynn Designs. The fern leaves are from Dusty Attic.

 I just love the Dusty Attic grass with flower stem that I used in this close up!  I used Distress inks and Distress Embossing powder on them.  The title was made with Prima linen alphas that are just the right size... not too big and not too small.

 You can see some of the masking I did with a Prima mask called Songbird.  I did some faux stitching, and used a Martha Stewart punch on the corners of the white cardstock.

 Here is a little cluster of the DA grass and flower stems, some chipboard , bits of a doily, itty bitty  flowers from Prima as well as a metal/bling heart.  Of course, I can't forget the edge distressing and inking that make all my layouts complete!

Well, I hope you had a blast looking at my layout and close ups, and please remember to go to Stuck on U Sketches and check out what our other awesome designers have created with the sketch!  I promise you will NOT be disappointed!  There just might be something in it for you too!

~Always~ return to Stuck on U Sketches!

Hi everyone! I'm excited to share a new layout with you, plus the fact that my mojo has returned, and I am back designing at Stuck on U Sketches! I'm so happy to be back working with all these talented ladies!

The name of my layout is "always", and it features my great niece Austin...she is such a cutie! I used the March Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

This kit features My Minds Eye "Follow your heart - be happy". I just love this kit, and it's been lots of fun to work with!

The sketch we had to work with this week is by Debbie Burns, and you can see that it is a lovely one!  I had a blast working with it!

Lots of edge distressing done with the Zutter Distrezz it All! Of course, then some inking!

Here is a close up of the banner that came with the kit....I added some of the chipboard buttons to it as well. Below the banner you can see the brick masking I did with the Prima brick mask.  I love masks!

On this photo, and the one below you can see on the corners that I used another Prima mask, but this time I used Molding Paste to create the design.  I then used a few different colors of Distress Ink.

Here is a close up of the flower cluster and the teeny tiny Prima flowers!  They are so cute!

Thanks everyone for stopping by and checking out my layout!  It means oh so much and I hope you weren't disappointed!  Don't forget to pop by Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other ladies have done and take a shot at the sketch.......there might be something in it for you if you do!
