The Deconstructed Sketch No. 201

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

I love this sketch (as I always do, right?). I always love sketches that are super versatile and have banners! 

I am still on my awesome vacation, but I brought along a little travel kit of papercrafting goodies so that I could participate in the weekly sketches. It was fun to challenge myself to use only what I had brought with me, rather than an entire craft store room full of product.

For this week's sketch I used Basic Grey's Vivienne collection and a sentiment stamp by Ali Edwards from Technique Tuesday's So Very Thankful set.




Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see how they were inspired  by this week's sketch:

The Best of the First 200 - The Deconstructed Sketch

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

Since we just passed the 200 mark, Jen thought it would be fun to go back and let us choose our favorite sketch from the last 200 (!) sketches to showcase this week.

I chose sketch 66 for my card this week. 

I used one of my all-time favorite (and nearly gone!) paper pads for this week's card --  Simple Stories: Homespun. I also used the sentiment die from the Avery Elle Gift Card Elle-ments. I added a flower cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, topped it with a PTI Pure Poppy button and some Hemptique twine to finish it off.


Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see which sketch inspired each of them this week:

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 200

Hello there!

Welcome to the 200th edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

200 sketches. Wow. I am amazed every week at the awesome sketches Jen creates. They are so fun to work with. Congratulations on your impressive milestone, Jen! Here's to 200 more!

My card for this week was made to celebrate a 3-week road trip that my bestie and I are embarking upon beginning today. I am super excited!

I used papers, stickers, and chipboard from the Hello World collection by My Mind's Eye along with a fun stamp from Ali Edwards.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 199

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

Jen has created another great sketch for us to play with this week.

I started with a circle of watercolor paper and added a wash of Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks, then added some splatters of the same colors of Distress Spray Stains, along with a spritz of Tarnished Bronze Distress Spray Stain. I then used the wreath image from the Happy Christmas stamp set, along with a couple of small chevrons from V for Chevron, sentiment from Winter Woodland and the 'happy' die from The Big, The Bold and the Happy Cutaways collection from Winnie and Walter. The Memory Box Lunette butterfly was cut from vellum and layered with gold glitter paper.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 198

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

Jen has a super fun and unique sketch for us to play with this week. I really enjoyed it.

This time around, I used my all-time favorite stamp and die set from Mama Elephant: Up and Away. Those little critters just make me happy. I also used the fabulous Birthday Creative Cuts and Cross My Heart stamp set as well as Lawn Fawn's Beachside Pint-Sized Patterns 6x6 paper pad. I used Copics to color the animals and balloons and then added a coat of glossy accents to the balloons for a little extra fun.

Mojo Monday 393 - Such a Joy

Hello there!

I have been having a great time in my craft room the past few days! I am trying to make some cards for my stash so that I have them when needed, instead of freaking out and making a card at the last minute. :)

I decided to sit down with this week's Mojo Monday sketch and see how the creative process moved me.

I used Heidi Swapp Hello Beautiful papers along with Verve's Kind Words and Each Day stamp sets.
