Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style Guest Designer

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a terrific Thursday!
I'm so happy to announce that today I am a guest designer for the
If you enjoy pocket style scrapbooking along with sketches and haven't heard of them before, you really should check them out. They offer 4 sketches every month, and since I love sketches and am forever behind in my albums that really helps me get some cards ready to go for a future layout. 

The sketch I was given to work with for my guest DT spot is this awesome sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I adore how this turned out and can't wait to put it into my album! It was super simple to make too! I used an older pack of ready to go cards. Not sure which ones they were since I no longer have the packaging, but I wanna say they were a Snap Pack from Simple Stories. I took the minty colored journal card for my base and cut up two other cards to create the embellie to make the card my own. The embellishment is popped up with some foam tape for a little dimension, I love doing that! I added a little heart, some crochet thread and some Nuvo drops and this card was done! 

I have enjoyed playing along in these challenges for the last couple of months and this month was no exception! I just had to play and create something with the other three sketches also. haha! Here is a look at the other sketches for this month:

Sketch #77:

My take:

This card was done like the other card. I simply cut up cards from the set to create my own. The banners are only attached at the edge so that the 2x3 photo can easily be adhered.

Sketch #78:

My take:

I cut up some of the scraps to create the banners on this one. Tied some crochet thread around the top and added some more Nuvo drops onto the card.

Sketch #79:

My take:

I used more scraps for this one and added the sweet little camera. The camera was actually on a 2x2 card that was in the set and I just fussy cut it out and popped it up with some foam tape. I added a sentiment from a My Creative Time stamp set and more Nuvo drops.

These were all so easy to make but I love how just by simply altering some pre made cards, they feel more like my own style and the sketches just made it so much easier! Gotta love that!!

Ok so last month when I played along, I posted where I was at in each of my PL albums. I thought it would be kinda neat if I kept myself accountable each month by posting my progress. Here are my stats that I posted last month per album (album year/month currently on):

2016: June
2017: halfway through March

Not much progress this month I'm afraid. Still no movement on my 2016 album and I am now only halfway through April in my 2017 album. There is progress though so I will happily take it, even if it isn't as fast as I would like haha!
