here in the Tulsa area. I bought a new coffee pot last night...one with a timer so by the time I got out of bed this morning by coffee was done brewing. Love it! So, how was your week? Good, I hope.
Let's take a look at last week's sketch...
This sketch was found on Scrapbooks Etc.
Jannie had a scrappin' extravaganza this last weekend. She completed 20 pages and scrapped 75 photos! That's amazing! Here's Jannie's take on last week's sketch.
Jannie chose just a few of the elements from the sketch she liked and worked those into her layout. She used the font from Santa's Workshop for her title. Such a cute photo!
Shar also got in on last week's sketch. Check out her layout...
Shar used the sketch to scrap her daughter's 14th birthday. She used the number candles, Quickutz Nesting Stars, and the QK Club Arrow die. I love all the Dymo Label journaling.
This week's sketch also comes to us from Scrapbooks Etc.
This sketch has lots of elements to it!
Our friend Michelle Granger played along with us again this week! Here's Michelle's take on the sketch...
Michelle started with some delicious Pink Paislee papers and stickers she found in our booth! Then she took some American Crafts chipboard and heat embossed it with American Crafts embossing powder! Michelle used the pocket element of the sketch to hold her journaling cards. She used Copic Glitter Pens for her journaling.
And here's my take on this week's sketch...
I too used some Pink Paislee goodies on my layout. I grabbed some papers, rubons, brads and canvas tags from their Mistletoe and Co. collection earlier this week when I was visiting the store. Like Michelle, I chose to keep the pocket element on my page. I used the Spellbinders Polka Dot Frame to create my pocket. I cut one of the tags from the Pink Paislee paper and tucked it behind the opening in the frame the added a few rubons around it. This pocket is being used to house more photos from our Christmas celebration. I couldn't resist adding one of those glittery brads to the top of the tree on my canvas tag. The tag behind my chipboard title was also cut from one of the tags from the paper. After I cut it I lightly sanded the edges before adding the title. To finish off the layout I sprinkled some Kaiser half pearls around the page. I really had fun with this sketch!
Before I leave you today I wanted to show you some storage ideas from Jenn. The Quickutz Library Storage Binders are back in stock. If you're like me you have tons of 4x4 dies that need a home. Jenn has found a great solution for her dies. When she purchases a 4x4 die she keeps the insert with the picture on it. She punches a hole in the upper left-hand corner and adds it to a binder ring. She organizes these rings by groups like animals, food, etc. so she knows just where to look.
Then she puts the dies in the Library Storage Binders and labels them with the groups that coordinate with the cards. Then, she tucks them into the drawers of her JetMax cubes she bought at Target. Jenn has also found that these drawers also work well for housing her Sizzix dies...
This is a great way to stay organized and save on space! Thanks for sharing Jenn!
Do you have any great storage solutions? If so, we'd love to see them! You can email them to me at email@example.com.
Thanks for stoppin' by today! I can't wait to see what you all do with this week's sketch! Have a wonderful weekend and we'll see you back here Monday with some more fun projects!
