Hello ladies, today I want to share with you the layout I made with the Let's Get Sketchy sketch for this week.  We have a lovely sketch designed by Laura Whitaker this week. 

Here is my take on the sketch.

Products used
Fancy Pants Be Different collection - Big Star 12x12 patterned paper
Fancy Pants Be Different collection - Oh Boy 12x12 pattern paper
American Crafts cream cardstock
Heidi Swapp chevron stencil
Tim Holtz idea-ology alpha parts frame
Tim Holtz idea-ology rub-ons
Tim Holtz distress paint
Gears, buttons and bling
Here are some close-up pictures of the detail.

I used a Heidi Swapp chevron stencil to include some detail on the two corners of the layout.  In the bottom right hand corner, I included a rub on, as well as some buttons and bling.  I also had some chipboard gears, which I painted with Tim Holts' distress paint. 

So head on over to Let's Get Sketchy and link you projects HERE in order to win a $10 gift certificate from A Cutt Above.

Hi there ladies, today I want to share a layout with you using the Swithboard collection from Pink Paislee. 

I had so much fun creating this layout!!!!!!!!!  And of all the layouts I made recently, this one is my favourite!  When I saw this paper range, I immediately fell in love with it, and I knew I wanted to create a fun layout!  So I printed some pictures with our little one playing with a phone.  But in the end, I decided against using those pictures and rather using some of my all time favourite pictures that were taken of my and Jonathan - the colours in the pictures were a perfect match for the collection. 

My inspiration for the layout came from a class taught by a dear friend of my, Jowilna Nolte, where she used a lot of small blocks.  So opted for the bigger blocks, and a patchwork feel to the layout. 

Products Used
Pink Paislee Switchboard Call Me patterned paper
Pink Paislee Switchboard Rotary Phone patterned paper
Pink Paislee Switchboard Dial Up patterned paper
Pink Paislee Switchboard Hey There patterned paper
Pink Paislee Switchboard Address Book patterned paper
Pink Paislee Switchboard Chipboard Sticker Set
White and black cardstock
Chipboard title
Tim Holtz distress paint
Thread and buttons
Here are some close-ups of the detail and embellishments.
I used a chipboard title which I painted using Tim Holtz' distress paint, and once I adhered all the blocks, I hand stitched each one individually (which took some time.....). 

Not only were there paper in this collection stunning, but there was also gorgeous chipboard stickers.  I included these on the layout, along with some buttons I had in my stash. 
So there you have it, my layout using the Pink Paislee Switchboard collection!  All of these products are available in the Frosted Designs store!  So head on over and fill up those baskets :-)
