My Creative Scrapbook- March 2017


Hello friends! I am back to share the layouts I created with the March 2017 Main Kit. This kit featured the Jen Hadfield Simple Life Collection as well as some other fun goodies. This collection was filled with beautiful florals and this kit was so fun to work with.


The first three layouts I created with the kit were all masculine ones. This kit really lent itself to both masculine and feminine color schemes. For my first layout, I followed the exclusive sketch that My Creative Sketches provides each month. They also provide Cut files every month for our kit Subscribers. There is a Video Tutorial on my channel for this one if you’d like to watch.

The second layout was also a masculine one. I played with a little mixed media and a lot of the ephemera.

For the third layout, I wanted to play with the stencil that was included in the kit. I also added the beautiful lace that came in the kit. Even with the lace I kept the color scheme very masculine. These colors and ephemera pieces were the perfect embellishments for this small photo of my father.

By the fourth layout, I was ready to use the beautiful pinks and florals included in this kit. I love the combination of this fun hexagon wood grain and the pink polka dot paper.

Of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fussy cut these beautiful flowers from one of the patterned papers. I also used the stencil and stamp set that was included in the kit to create this fun layout.

This was such a fun kit to work with. I only wish I had more time to create more layouts with it but I will definitely put all of the leftover goodies to good use on future projects.

Sketch N Scrap Layout Sketch #107


Hello friends. I am back with another layout for the Sketch N Scrap Design Team. This week I am following Layout Sketch #107 by Mandy Reedyk.


I decided to scrap 3 recent photos from my older sons 5th grade graduation. I used several patterned papers all from the Jen Hadfield Home Made Collection. Even the Congratulations Banners are from a cut apart sheet from that collection. I layered a few of the papers similar to the sketch and matted my photos on black cardstock and then on some of the polka dot patterned papers. I popped up the center photo on foam tape.

I used a pack of foam stars from Horizon and painted some of them with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Mint and Cherry. As a finishing touch I added some white paint splatter with Dylusions in White Linen.

Sadly, my term with the Sketch N Scrap Design Team will end this month. It has been so amazing to be a part of this wonderful team. It has truly been an honor to be a part of this talented, supportive and sweet team. I know I will continue to follow Sketch N Scrap sketches.

Thanks so much for stopping by. XOXO -Katty
