Sketch N Scrap DT Sketch #101

Hello friends! I am back with a DT layout for the Sketch N Scrap Blog. This month is extra special over at Sketch N Scrap. We are celebrating our 100th sketch this month and we will have sketch challenges every Thursday as well as the regular monthly sketch challenges.  Today I am following Sketch #101 by Kelly Holifield. This was such a fun sketch to follow. I decided to use the Maggie  Holmes Shine Collection for this whole layout. I am scrapbooking three pictures of my adorable niece who decided to act silly one night while I was visiting. She is too cute! The layers in the back as well as my photos were all matted with dark grey cardstock to make them pop.

For my tittle I used some glitter word stickers from Glitz and finished it off with some Basic Grey Enamel Dots. I really love how this layout turned out.

Victoria Marie DT: Sketch Challenge

My lovely teammate Megan & I are co-hosting this weeks challenge on the Victoria Marie FB Group. This week we are following an awesome sketch that Megan found on Pinterest. The sketch is from the Elle’s Studio Blog. In addition to following the sketch we are also challenging our members to use Valentines Day colors in their layouts.

For this layout I am working with the Crate Paper Hello Love Collection. I began with some gesso in the background to tone down the bold stripe patterned paper. I then layered my papers and fussy cut the hearts from one of the sheets from the paper pad to replace the triangles at the bottom of the sketch. I then added some Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Cracked Pistachio to the background. I added a few die cuts from the Maggie Holmes Shine Ephemera pack, American Crafts Foam thickers and a few Puffy hearts and stickers from my stash.

Obsessed with Katty & Christy: Season 2 Week 3

Hello friends! Christy & I are back with our third episode of Obsessed using the Maggie Holmes Shine Collection. This will be the last episode for this Season using the Shine Collection. For the next three episodes we will be using the Dear Lizzy Documentary Collection. Christy chose the four papers we used for this week. I loved the dominance of Black and White in her selection. I knew that would be interesting to work with. Besides the papers we also had a recipe challenge to use on this layout. Our Layout Recipe Included:  Mixed Media, Washi Tape, Twine, 2 pieces of chipboard and two types of thickers. The photo I am scrapping is one taken on New Years Eve 2016.

I debated whether or not to use one of the patterns in this weeks paper selection as my background. I decided to go with a white background. I wanted to bring in some texture and color to the background so I used the Mini Cubist Stencil by The Crafters Workshop. I used the stencil in two different ways. First, I used some white Modeling Paste over the stencil in a few scattered areas on my page. Then I used the same stencil and traced the small squares with a thin black Sharpie pen. I added squares until I was happy with how it looked. I then colored on the squares and randomly added pinks and yellows around the squares, that covered the mixed media. I used the three black & white papers to matt my photo. I added some black and white wash strips in three spots and a few hearts and the word together from the Chipboard Pack. I then added a few pieces from the Maggie Holmes Shine Ephemera Pack. I brought in the twine to two of the tags. For the two types of thickers I used the thickers from this same collection The Detail Thickers as well as the Puffy Alphabet Stickers.

Obsessed with Katty & Christy: Season 2 Week 2

Hello Friends! In case you are not familiar with Christy & I’s Obsessed series, we chose a favorite collection, in this case we’re using the Maggie Holmes Shine collection. We chose 4-5 sheets of patterned paper to work with each week. We post our videos on our You Tube Channels every other week. For the second week of our Obsessed series using the Maggie Holmes Shine  collection Christy & I decided we’d turn to Pinterest for inspiration. Christy found a lovely layout which we later found  was created by Ida Rosberg & you can find her amazing work on her blog Hey Little Magpie.

When a collection has so many beautiful patterned papers it is very difficult to chose just a few to use.  We ended up choosing these 5.

My favorite thing about these collections is how well all of these papers coordinate. I did use all of the papers we chose and decided to mimic the vertical design that Ida used in her layout. I absolutely loved following this page design and it truly did inspire me.  I just love how my layout turned out.

Not only was I able to use up pieces from the 5 sheets of paper that we chose for this week but I was also able to use up a ton of pieces from the Ephemera Pack and Chipboard Sheet. For my very long tittle “Remember the Goals for 2016” I used the “Remember” from the Ephemera Pack, the “the” from the Gold Glitter Foam Thickers, the “Goals” from the Detail Chipboard Thickes and the “2016” I cut out from one of the 5 sheets of paper which is called Memento.

Obsessed with Katty & Christy: Season 2 Week 1

Maggie HolmesbloggggIf you follow my You Tube Channel you may have previously seen my friend Christy & I’s  “Obsessed with Katty & Christy” series. Our first series aired in Fall 2015. We are both huge fans of Maggie Holmes so for our first series we featured the Maggie Holmes Open Book Collection, one of our favorite collections of all time. Every other week we’d create a layout with specific sheets of paper from that collection and we’d have a challenge to follow as well. This year our series has returned and this time we are using the Maggie Holmes Shine Collection. Our first episode aired today, Wednesday, January 6, 2016. Christy & I each have a video up on our You Tube channel. My video can be found on my Channel: Katty Miranda. Christy’s video can be found on her Channel: Christy’s Beautiful Life. For this layout I chose a photo taken this past Christmas day of me and my two boys. The picture was taken Near Park City, Utah which is where we stayed during our Vacation. Besides the four sheets of paper that we had to use on this layout our challenge was to follow a sketch and incorporate wood veneer. The sketch is from the Sketch N Scrap Blog which I am a Design Team Member of. On my layout I also added a few other papers from the same collection as well as those lovely colorful thickers from the chipboard sheet. The white chipboard letter thickers are also from the Shine Collection.  Thanks for stopping by. XOXO -Katty
