Sketch Overview

I love the banners in this sketch so I had to put my own spin on it! I had some journaling flags, twine, and small clothespins. I used the twine for my banner to frame the layout. Then I included the flags for the title. The clothespins helped hold the twine in place and added some dimension. I used products from the You & Me Collection and Starry Mix Confetti to add more texture and layers to my layout.

Don’t forget you have all month to play along with this sketch, and you don’t have to use Pretty Little Studio Product. Just make sure to link up to the original blog post for the March 1st Sketch Challenge by March 31st.

Perfect Match

Today I am sharing a layout with you using the You & Me Collection. My husband and I are getting ready to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary in May so I thought it would be great to create a layout just for us! It is so hard to believe we have been together for 30 years! Time goes by so fast! The cute vintage cutouts and gorgeous colors in the You & Me Collection are perfect for this layout! I love how they coordinate with the watercolors in the background.

Winter Boots

Hi there! Carole here to share a layout with you about my dog’s winter boots. Yes, you read this correctly, winter boots. We had a rough winter last year with extremely cold temperatures and lots of snow! My dog Dakota would refuse to go outside because it was too cold. So I purchased dog boots. Dakota wore them in the house to get used to them and finally realized how warm they are. He loves to wear them! So I had to create a layout about it. For my Winter Boots layout I used products from the Winter Wonderland and Holiday Cheer collection from Pretty Little Studio. I love the blue and gray colors in the Winter Wonderland Collection that also coordinates well with the Holiday Cheer Collection.

Mixed media was also included in this layout. Yes, I love to play with the messy stuff. I think it has something to do with teaching kindergarten. I used watercolors, Ranger Texture Paste, and stencils. I loved how it added some color and dimension to my layout.
