August 5, 2011 Original Sketch

Well friends..stick with us today. This may be the longest post ever!LOL!
We have some HUGE news to share today!
(and you'll have to wait til the end to find out the winner for last week's blog hop candy!)
Nanne, Sandi and myself have been thinking about this for awhile and are
excited to be making the announcement...

We'll be adding new challenges to Stuck on U Sketches!
We will still continue to bring you sketches every other week and hopefully keep
bringing you original sketches as well. We will no longer be doing tutorials but instead
we will be adding Die Cut Challenges!
We are very, very excited about these changes and hope that you will be too!

Today we'd like to share our new sketch challenge and our DT projects but also
introduce you to our new Die Cut DT. You'll see some familiar faces from sketches
but also some new and fresh talent...

Help us welcome to our team... 

Faith Abigail

My name is Faith Abigail and I have been very happily married to my husband, George, for five years. I work as a freelance makeup artist and I'm an accomplished photographer; I enjoy dance, theatre, history and reading. I have always been involved in the Fine Arts and I come from a very crafty family; I began paper crafting last year and quickly discovered a passion for it.


Hi! My name is Rechelle Pace. I am a full-time wife, mother, computer software/web/blog/iPhone application developer, and scrapper.
I live with my family in North Texas. I’m married to my wonderful husband and best friend, Bobby. We met 20 years ago in college and we have been happily married for almost 16 years! We have a smart and handsome 15 year old son, Justin, who keeps us very busy with high school football practice and games! This fall he will be a sophomore and a quarterback for the JV football team.
Included in our family is Lucy, a Poodle/Chihuahua mix. Somehow, that mixture makes Lucy look exactly like Toto in the Wizard of Oz!
I have been a computer software/web/blog/iPhone application developer for 16 years but when I am not doing that or doing something football related, I’m scrapping!
I started scrapbooking shortly before my son was born. I enjoy card making and other paper crafts but scrapbooking is definitely my passion, obsession, and addiction! If you ever see my scrapbook room, you will know it is true! When I bought my first Cricut, my passion, obsession, and addiction for scrapbooking intensified! I love the versatility it gives me for creating and embellishing my scrapbook pages and other paper crafts!
I am so excited to be a part of the Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Design Team. I am honored to have the opportunity to create alongside such a talented group of ladies! I hope to inspire everyone around me to create beautiful and fun projects of their own and to be inspired by you!


My name is Tammy Edwards, and I live in North Carolina with my husband of almost 33 years and our beagle, Lexi.  We have two grown daughters, who are both married to wonderful guys, a granddaughter, and a grandson, that we love to spoil.  When our oldest daughter announced her first pregnancy, I decided to make a scrapbook for the baby.  I have been hooked ever since.  I use lots of Cricut die cuts on my creations.  After seeing a Cricut demonstrated in August of 2006, I purchased one that same day. I don't know how I'd scrapbook without it! While I love doing both layouts and cards, I find that I make many more cards now than scrapbook pages, mostly because there is always an occasion that needs a card.  It is sort of like a ministry to me.  I hope that my cards are an encouragement to others.  And, by having a blog and being on this awesome design team, I hope my creations are an inspiration to others!

Hi, my name is Theresa Kelly. I live in Kentucky now, moved here from Las Vegas, but grew up in California, I know, what a culture shock! I live out in the Country, I’m married to my Best Friend and I have 3 children, 30, 27, and 10 (he keeps me on my toes, lol) I also have 3 grandkids, 7, 5, and 2, they are still in Las Vegas so I still get to visit. I started scrappin when my youngest was born and haven’t looked back. I love to paint, sew, garden and will try any kind of craft and add it to my projects whenever I can. I love my Cricut and use it at least a couple of times week and have a really hard time scrapping with out it, LOL!. I love to go to auctions, antique stores, flea markets and can’t drive by a yard sale without stopping and I usually find a treasure to alter and turn into something new. I am so excited to be on the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Team and looking forward to working with the all the wonderful gals and hopefully I can inspire you to grab your Die Cut Machine and Make a Memory!

And those lovely ladies you know and love...

  11. hi again- have added my digital scrapbook page. Actually I'm a bit confused as to whether I should have used die cuts - eeeeeeeeek - hope not, but actually I'm working on another version of the sketch anyway so that will have die cuts on it as it's a real scrapbook page.
    Thanks again for all the amazing inspiration.

  12. I must admit it is hard for me to do these layouts that are in the corner and leave so much empty space, so it definatly was a challenge.

    The DT's gave us some amazing inspiration!!!!!!!

  13. Once again, I love love the layout. So much that I used it for all three of my kids albums. Keep up the great work!


Thank you for stopping by and for leaving a comment. We highly appreciate it.. We all hope you have a great and creative day..
