You Are Such A Blessing To Me - January 30th Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, Caroleanne  here with you today to reveal my latest layout here at Stuck on U Sketches.
This is a fabulous sketch by our lovely Leah, I hope you have a go.
Below is a simple step by step, also a colour wheel link to help  you with putting colours together.
You may think that my colour choice for this layout is a little strange, but I wanted to use burgundy from Jessies jacket. I always like to use the photo for my colour inspiration. I also wanted to use blue to hi-lite Jessies blue eyes. Plus, I wanted to use a colour to make the page pop a little. So, I took out my colour wheel and decided upon a Triadic colour scheme. This is where three colours sit an equal distance from each other on the wheel. I checked blue and burgundy and found that yellow was the perfect fit.

January 30 Sketch Reveal

   Hi my friends! It's Leah here sharing today, our newest sketch and my layout! 
   I have to say this layout is a rare one. It's bold and fun which I would say is part of "my style" but the "rare" part...there's not a single die cut thing to be found! Yes! Shocking, I know! Even though I rarely scrap this way, it's a nice break each time I do. Plus it's fun to really get the chance to go through my stash and shop what I have. Often in my more designed pages, there isn't total room to go nuts with embellishing. This was a different story though and I got lots of goodies added in! 

    Before I go much further. The base of my page DID make this sketch! It did! But at the end, I wanted even more small pops of color and then added some small scraps of papers (that look like more layering). So the green and yellow paper that looks like added layers in the background were the smallest of scraps! 

Let me also share our Top 3 from the January 9th
Die Cut Challenge- Snow!
Loved each and every project so thank you all for having shared with us!

Friendship Warms the Heart

Hello! I'm Vivian and today I'm sharing with you my version of the die cut challenge "warm & cozy".

I'm the first to admit that I sometimes take challenges a bit too literally. It can be hard to think outside the box. I have been with SOUS a while and have done this challenge before. Last time I put die cut scarves, mittens and hats on a layout.

This time . . . well . . . I did something else.

For all those girly-girls out there, this one is for you!

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by today!!

Supplies and further details can be found at my blog.

Die Cut Challenge - Warm Wishes

Hi it's Helen here. It's my turn to share a project for Die Cut Challenge this week. When I read the theme, Warm & Cozy, the first thing came in my mind was mittens.

Last week, this pair of mittens was a free cutting file from Silhouette Design Store. The card base I used Lori Whitlock's pennant card base.

I used 3D foam tape to give a dimensional looking to the mittens. Over my blog I have the detail how I make this card using Silhouette Cameo.

You still have time until Thursday, February 5th midnight to link up your project for this Die Cut Challenge. Remember, use any die cut that show your interpretation of the theme, Warm & Cozy. LINK UP HERE. Can't wait to see your projects :)

Have a fun crafty day!
