Mid Week Sketch 4-12

Hello and welcome to another Mid Week Sketch on Scrappy Sketches :-) This one is a great one for using up some scraps, or perhaps breaking into that kit of matching papers that has been sitting around. Either way, you just need a few strips to make a great layout to show off a gorgeous picture and have another story told.

Here it is, and my sample page for you:

As you can see, you can vary the strips to suit what you have. I pulled these from my scrap file, and just used what I had. I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with this. 

Remember, if you follow me and post a link, you go into the draw to win a little prize (which I recently added something to, so there are even more flowers in it now!) - get your entries in by the end of January to qualify.

Mid Week Sketch 3-12

Have you been waiting for it? I am starting to get used to Wednesday being sketch day now, and liking the regularity. I was a bit slow at my page this week though and only finished it this morning instead of being all ready and organised. Not that it matters, in the end, but I do like being organised.

When I do a sketch, I just sit and play till it looks right to me, then I go off and do my page. So it's kind of as fresh for me as it is for you. I liked this one, and I was brave and used a few bold pps that I wouldn't normally use for myself. Red! I never use red for me, lol... my daughter loves red, but I've always avoided it. I won't now, red is now on my list ;-)

So here is the sketch. It's another good one for using up a few random bits of leftover stash and bring them all together with some good embellishments.

And here is my sample page for you. I used quite a few bits and pieces gifted to me by scrapping friends on this page, through swaps or little packages of prettiness sent through the mail just because. I love having my far flung friends on my pages. Thanks girls. 

Remember, if you do the linky thing and become a follower this month, you go in the draw to win a little flower pack from me.

New Flower Packs

By the way, just wanted to tell you that if you are interested in having some gorgeous handmade flowers to use, I have added some lovely new creations into my Flower Shop. Packs like these ones:

There are more coming soon, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on the first new packs in the Flower Shop. Yum ;-)

Mid Week Sketch 2-12

Hello girls, I hope your week is being kind to you. Mine is being hot, but today is much nicer already.

First let me apologise for the whole lack of linky thing... can you believe I got sidetracked for a week? No, me either, but it happened... doing it today!

This week's sketch needs two 4x4 photos, nice and easy and fun to do. Hope you like it. Link back here with your photo, I would love to see what you are doing.

and this is the fun photos I had for it - she's a wild child, LOL. 

**I have now added the new inlinkz tool, so you can add your pages when they're done! Exciting stuff (for a non techy like me, LOL). The tools are on the right hand column, and I would just love you to share your pages there.

Mid Week Sketch 1-12

Are you ready for the first Scrappy Sketch of 2012? I hope you like it.

and here is the page that I made from the sketch

I glimmermisted and stamped my background page, then inked the edges before I started my layers, for a bit of added depth. Love that old button, it came from an antique shop.

Link your page using the InLinkz button below and become a follower for your chance to win this prize of my handmade flowers.

New Ideas

Hello my lovely scrappy friends. I hope you had a happy Christmas with the people you love, or at least, with the knowledge that they love you back, even if you couldn't be together. I hope this new year is kind to you, and that you get to enjoy lots of wonderful moments in it.

I have a plan for this year, that involves your creativity and mine. I hope you like it.

So here's how it will work. There will be a new Scrappy Sketches sketch posted here every Wednesday. You have a week to do the page and link it right here on Scrappy Sketches, or post it on the Home and Scrapped forum or the new Home and Scrapped Facebook page. Just remember to say what it is.

Then we will employ random generation to find one lucky person to win a prize pack of some of my handmade flowers. Photo coming of that, sorry it's not done already... I knew there was something I was meant to do tonight, but the movie was rather good. ;-) So yes, we are moving away from random posts and becoming more organised. That has to be better for us all, lol! Heaps more pages done, and who knows, maybe some pretty new flowers to play with.

love Heather x ..always be a little kinder than necessary.
