Every Summer...

Hello and thanks for joining me, Rosie, for the latest sketch reveal. There is sooo much inspiration in this fabulous sketch!

{Patterned paper, die cut pages, overlay, brads, chipboard, stickers-Simple Stories "Good Day Sunshine"; paper clip Simple Stories "I Am"; ledger paper-unknown; grey print-Studio Calico Basics; card stock-Bazzill}

I loved the lined paper in the sketch and found this ledger pattern in my stash, I placed it on a piece of Bazzill dotted card stock. It was great to pull out a punch I haven't used in awhile, that's the EK Success notebook edge punch. The die cut page I used for the layout title is one of the SN@P die cut pages in the Good Day Sunshine collection along with the woodgrain pattern.
This 'holepunched' paper is also a die cut page from the same collection. You have a good look at the overlay I used with the hexagons layered over the woodgrain page.
I handcut a tag to hold my journaling and finished it off with a brad. The also punched the edge on the tag which creates a visual triangle with the other punched edges.

I hope you'll find some time to give this sketch a try and link us up by clicking on the current sketch on the sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Springtime Flowers

Hello!! I'm Vivian and today I would like to share with you my version of our die cut challenge this week: "in the garden".

I really went all out. This entire project is die cuts! The wagon, the title, and the flowers are all die cuts and homemade.

I got the idea from SVGCuts design team projects. Those ladies are seriously talented and come up with wonderfully amazing things. If you want to learn how to make the wagon just click on the link.

I even special ordered "wood grain" pattern paper for this project. I really wanted that authentic, wooden feel to the wagon. This "garden" piece is now part of my growing collection of paper projects that decorate my home thru out the year.

I love how the flowers turned out. Yep, made them all but one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies can be found on my blog.
