World Card Making Day Flashback Friday!

Hi All,
Remember me?  I have been busy creating away but have not posted in a while.   That is until Lisa from Sketch N Scrap gave me the honor of creating a card using a past sketch.   It was the first sketch featured on Sketch N Scrap!

Here is the original sketch from Sketch N Scrap:


And the card inspired by the sketch:


All products used are from Stampin' UP!
The jar & floral images are from the Jar of Love stamp set and the sentiment is from the Birthday Fiesta stamp set.
The washi tape and pattern paper are from the Affectionately Yours Suite.

I hope you enjoyed the card and it inspires you to create something using our Flashback Friday Sketch.

Creatively Yours,
Lydia

Sketch #82

Ready for another layout sketch.  This is a bittersweet one! 
It is my last sketch as a design team member. 
My two terms are up and it is time to let some new talent in.

Here is Sketch #82 by Lisa Hidy:

Here is my interpretation of  the sketch:



I used bits and scraps of a few leftover kits.  I really love the way it all came together.

I mentioned above this is my last layout as a design team member.  Which means we are having a design team Call.  Please click below for details.

 DESIGN TEAM CALL!!!

Card Sketch # 50

Hi All,

Are you ready for another card sketch?
This one was super easy and looks great!
Sketch #50 was created by Lisa:



  I created my card using both retired and current Stampin' Up supplies:

 
The strips are from a retired DSP, I used the 12"sticker borders.  I loved the effect and colors!  The borders were my starting point in choosing colors and stamps.
 
Now go check out the Sketch N Scrap blog to see the beautiful cards the Design Team created using the same sketch. 
 
Creatively Yours,
Lydia

National Scrapbooking Day Sketch ( A Little Late)

 



Hi All,

As I am preparing my post for the next upcoming sketches and challenges, I realized my National Scrapbooking Day Post was not published!  (I must admit I saved the post but didn't schedule it!)

So here it is a little late, but a sketch can ALWAYS be used right!
Heck you can created loads of different layouts with the same sketch.  That is what we do every month at Sketch N Scrap.  We are given 1 sketch and a team of designers create very different layouts using the same sketch.

Well enough with my babbling...
Here is the NSD Sketch created by Lisa:
http://sketchnscrap.blogspot.com/2015/05/happy-national-scrapbooking-day.html

And this is what I created:


The left page of this double pager was created using the sketch and since I had additional photos, I extended the page and used the same PP to tie the two pages together.

Check out the layouts created by the Design Team using this sketch!
You still have until the end of the month to submit your layout and don't forget to head to the Sketch N Scrap blog for our daily challenges and prizes for our Birthday Bash!

Creatively Yours,
Lydia

Twistback Thursday #5



Hooray it is Twistback Thursday, which means we have another sketch for you!
Are you enjoying this beautiful weather! If you have this month's twistback is for you.
This months twist is to create and layout with the sketch below AND to use photos from the great outdoors!  Any outdoor adventure will do!



 This is the layout I created for our Twistback Thursday:


 
 
I warned you, I am in the middle of creating a Disney Cruise album so my current layouts are for this album. One of the stops on our Cruise was to Cozumel Mexico.  Our excursion for that day was to the Playa Del Carmen resort which has this awesome Water Trampoline.  It was a lot of work to swim to and a lot of work to go through the obstacles but SOO much fun.
 
Now head on to Sketch N Scrap's blog site to view all the lovely layouts the design team has created and upload your own layout.
 
Don't forget this is Sketch N Scrap's birthday bash month.  Go to the site daily to view a different challenge each day!
 
 

 Creatively Yours,

Lydia
