I really am going to participate in more of these Mid Week Mojo sketches from Scrapbook Steals!!!

I'm not working anymore, so I need to WIN my spending money now...

And here is my 2page version:

Just had to use a few more Out On A Limb cutouts from my ever-growing stash! Darn them and their adorably perfect themes!!!

KL September Layout Sketch

It's Kiwi Lane Layout Sketch time!

Go to their blog HERE to see the sketch and get your free printable that fits perfect on the cute little car in the Playtime set!

Here is my sample:

I fit WAY more pictures than normal on this one!!!

I love that the Kiwi Lane templates are clear. I was able to line up the sprockets on my paper perfectly to look like wheels on my little car:

Eventually this is where I will write:

Tiny Tags are great for journaling!

KL September Card Sketch



Well don't try to participate now, but here was Kiwi Lane's Card Sketch and free printable from a couple weeks ago:

And here was my sample:

I wanted to use the Playtime set in a pretty way and I think I succeeded! I REALLY like how this one turned out!!!

Just a touch of gold on my dragonfly:

And of course some dimension between layers:


Not gonna lie, I cut out a bunch of these to use in the future...

Go make your own :)

KL August Scrapbook Sketch


Still loving the Olympics!!!

I'll blog more in September...

Here is Kiwi Lane's scrapbook sketch and free printable for this month:

Here is my sample layout:

This one turned out so fun and colorful!!! I love how Kiwi Lane helps me use TONS of paper patterns without looking tacky!

GREAT printable this month:

And I LOVE all the dimension from layering 12 inch borders with card borders:

The only embellishments this cute paper needed was a few buttons and a bit of doodling!

KL August Card Sketch


I got a *little* sucked into the OLYMPICS, so this is late!

Here is Kiwi Lane's card sketch and printable:

And here is my sample:

I loved the printable! I just had to use more than one word element:

Since I really wanted the words to shine, I kept the embellishments to a twine-bow minimum. But it needed something... so I chopped off the bottom of the card along the edge of my template so it's fun to open:

Add a strip of cute paper inside and you're good to go:

Bonus- less space for writing! I always feel like I'm rambling in cards...

Hurry and stop by Kiwi Lane's blog HERE to enter.

July Layouts

2 double months in a row!

My Close To My Heart scrapbooking group might be getting frustrated with me...

Layout #1:

We used the Magical Paper Packet, the Magical Sequins, and some ancient long-retired chipboard stars colored to match with alcohol markers.

I love the title:

I got the idea from a Jamberry wrap I wore for the 4th of July!

Hooray for circle cutters:

Layout #2:

We used the Florence Paper Packet, the Florence Compliments, the Florence Sequins, and the Rose Gold Foil Tape.

A perfect title just happened to come on the sticker sheet:

SO convenient!

I love any flourish stamp, and this one is no exception:

This layout did not want to photograph... everything is much brighter and rose-gold shiny:

Sorry it took so long to post Valerie and George!

Happy scrappin'!
