Vegas Dream / My Scraps & More

Happy Wednesday!  Today I'm sharing a layout I created using Sketch #100 from the My Scraps Sketch Blog.  The super talented Laura Whitaker designed the sketch, and I really love it!  I pulled out my Amy Tan Stitched goodies from American Crafts and went to work.  There is still a lot of this collection left in the store HERE, so check it out!

I changed my photos to black and white because they had a lot of hard to scrap colors in them.  I knew I wanted to use the black & white striped paper, so I paired it with white cardstock and added a bit of white gesso and watercolor.  The rest is layers and embellishments scattered around.  A pretty easy page to throw together!

I love adding my own stitching to things for that little extra touch.  I added pop dots to this little red and white heart strip and the big Daydream circle.  This made the flair button easy to tuck underneath it.

I really love the clear acetate stickers in this perfect for mixing up your title!  I've been hoarding those foam work Thickers....I just never want to run out of them :)

Here's one more close up of the top...just a cute clear sticker that I added to white cardstock first, some washi tape and some tangled thread.

Be sure to check out the Sketch Blog HERE....and get ready for another new one next week!  Thanks for visiting me, and have a great day!


  1. Awesome use of the Stitched collection Missy! I love the b&w stripes with the b&w photos and the pops of Teal!!

  2. You've highlighted this collection brilliantly, Missy! Such great, stitched details, and I love those acrylic letters to bits!
