Sketch N Scrap #143

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Friday!
Today starts a new sketch challenge over at 

Just in case you don't already know, Sketch N Scrap is a sketch challenge blog that offers layout and card sketches each month! Layout sketches are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and card sketches are posted on the 5th and 20th of each month. 

Here is a look at the second layout sketch of the month provided to us by Heather:


Here is my layout I created based on the sketch:


Last year my daughter and I got our picture taken with Santa on a whim. As soon as I saw the sketch, the idea for this picture being on a layout came to mind! I scanned the original picture so that I could manipulate it a bit for this layout. My daughter and I were both wearing bright colors that didn't really go with the red. so I turned the picture into a black and white and then turned everything that was red back to red. I love the way it turned out!! The app I used was called Color Pop. Once I had the picture the way I wanted it, I printed it out and matted it onto some white and red glitter cardstock. I added it to my gray striped paper, and added my die cut word, Believe, to the bottom of the layout. I die cut some stars and just started adding them and filling in some of the gaps with sequins and Nuvo drops. I added the date on a label and some doodling around the border and called it good lol! It is so incredibly glittery and sparkly in person, this picture definitely doesn't do it justice. I love how it turned out!

This is my last post as a deign team member for Sketch N Scrap. I have had so much fun being on this wonderful team with all these talented ladies!! Unfortunately, as my kids get older, the pictures I have to scrap are less and less. Thank you Lisa for allowing me to be a part of the Sketch N Scrap team!!

  3. LOVE the layout Stacey! Your photo is perfect and I like how you adjusted it to suit the layout design! You did a fabulous job for Sketch N Scrap and I'll miss seeing those awesome layouts you created using their sketches... But it's true as our kids get older, we take less and less photo's. You just need some Grandkids to start up the scrapbooking thing again! hahaha Have a wonderful weekend!
