Sketchsupport Blog Hop
It is my take on this sketch by Allison:
You will find each of the design team members has used this sketch in our blog hop. I'm excited to see how everyone uses it! This is my first blog hop..I followed many but never actually participated in one so I am having fun!
One thing you will notice with me is that I tend to always change each sketch in some way or another. That's why I love them..you can alter them to fit your needs. For example, in this layout, none of my pictures are the sizes given in the sketch. I altered them to work with what I had and I didn't want to leave any out so I added a few extra pictures as well. I used 2 pictures in place of the vertical 4 x 6 and I added a small one by the title. Most of the 3x3 pics on the sketch are 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 in my layout. I used snowflakes instead of stars..anything would work, just vary the sizes. I also added a few flourishes here and there.
Supplies: All papers are Fancy Pants Cardstock: Bazzill Flourishes and glittered snowflakes: Making Memories All other Snowflakes are Stampin Up! Rhinestones: Loreal
Now how about a little info about how I scrap...
When it comes to paper crafting I am... Obsessed! I love this hobby and the idea that I am leaving something behind for my kids to look back on one day. I don't really know what my style is, I just do whatever strikes me at the moment. I do have to have balance and tend to do things symmetrical. I love bling and the color green.
Where do you craft?
I am very lucky to have room dedicated to this hobby I love. My husband helped me build the tables and I LOVE this space and I love to organize everything in it! I enjoy having room for friends or my boys to come and "play " with me! Here is a link to my room: My Happy Place
When I am creating, these are the things I have to have around me... Friends, music, and everything at arms reach. I also seem to have the need to snack every time I sit down, so of course there has to be something sweet(chocolate), sour(candy) and salty (honey roasted peanuts) or my homemade trail mix.
When I am not creating, you can find me... clipping coupons. I am loving the challenge of saving money. If I'm not doing that or volunteering at church, I'm home probably cleaning or reorganizing something. I sort of have an obsession with things being orderly and I get giddy about new storage supplies.
When it comes to sketches I... Love the versatility of them! I love how a sketch can take me in so many different directions and gives me a great starting point. I can just grab a sketch, some coordinated supplies and start! They have also changed the way I buy my papers..I also get more use out of what I already have. Often times,my scraps are perfect for cards...and they have a sketch book for those too ya know ; - )
