Creative Scrappers - Birthday Bash!

Welcome to the Creative Scrappers Blog Hop!  We are celebrating 6 years of Creating With Sketches.  We're so excited to share 12 new sketches for you today and some inspiring layouts as well.


We'll be giving away a few prizes, so be sure to play along and check back on Saturday night, April 26th, to see if you're the lucky winner!

Here are the different ways you can play along:

2.  Comment on our blog or our Facebook page.

Here is the amazing sketch I worked with.  I love all the layering opportunities this one gives!  Let me tell you my FAVORITE thing about a Creative Scrappers sketch....I'm ALWAYS inspired to try something new.  They give me a push to set up my pages in ways that I wouldn't normally do if I just tried to freehand it.  I always wind up creating something totally unexpected, which is amazing to me.


Here is what I created. I used lots of Heidi Swapp Hello Today products for this layout.  I love that the navy blue, light teal/blue and pink were all in my photo as well as this collection, so it all went together so well.  I added a bit of modeling paste, watercolor and washi tape to my background and then went on to add lots of paper layers for my two clusters.  I also added in some vellum and hand stitching.

One super fun thing about these Heidi mistables....they are SO fun and awesome!  They come white and whenever you mist them or ink them, the white design shows through.  My "awesome time" title is one of those pieces, as well as the yellow and pink arrows.  So glad I finally gave those a try!


I love these acetate arrows and circle stickers...just perfect for embellishing and layering.  I also did some hand stitching on this page...something I haven't done in a while.


I love tearing my paper, especially when I'm layering it.  I like the uneven look.  And this is also why I love tangled thread....it just adds a bit of messy chaos.


Another area of stiching and layering, along with some buttons, thread, tape and paste.


More layering and adding dimension...
