Creating With Sketches: Vol 2: "Puppy Love"

Hey fellow scrappers! How are you? I myself have been QUITE busy. But I definitely wanted to share with you a layout that I created for the Creative Scrappers "Creating With Sketches: Vol 2" eBook by Kristine Davidson. After taking part in Vol 1 last year, I knew I just had to join in on this one too! Lots of scrappy friends in this publication as well and I'm so happy that Kristine wanted me to be a part of it :).

Here is what I created:

"Puppy Love"
Another great photo of Gunner playing with our dog Luxor :)

Let's take a closer look:

I loved using the yellow/orange mist against the colors of the Kaisercraft "75 Cents" & "Pickled Pear" papers. Gorgeous! And you can see I put my microbeads to work again as water for my bird bath :).

Delicious combo of Prima flowers :)


A closer look at my masking and layers, and of course the beautiful "Village Sign Post" chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios :)

I first used my "Coffee Shop" Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and misted the entire piece. Then blotted quickly with a napkin. I then stamped, embossed, and added microbeads. Voila!

If you would like to get a copy of Creating With Sketches: Vol 2, you can head on over to the Creative Scrappers store HERE. It is available in both digital and print form. And today I have a coupon code for you for $2 off a digital copy! Just use "CWS2Discount" when placing your order :).

Thanks for stopping by today~! I hope your week is winding down nicely :) 

Take care,
