Sketchtorian III – Goodbye Winter

Loving this sketch! (Do I say that every time?)


The swirly bits to each corner over the small squares made me instantly happy and I had the paper and embellishments in mind right away.

I have been hoarding a huge collection of the Bo Bunny Snow Day line, released in 2011, waiting for that perfect Christmas or winter event. (Do you ever do that? Buy a product line or kit, just in case … and then hoard it for just way too long?!) 

Well, that perfect event and my hoarded, precious Bo Bunny Snowfall line have finally met as a result of our family’s photos taken this unnaturally warm Christmas in Alberta. Sorry for all of you on the East Coast who had an awful winter season and just cursed me!

I wanted product for this photo that was winter but not Christmas; something brown and blue to accent the natural background of trees and snow; and also something a little feminine to pull out the embellishment features from the Sketchtorian sketch. 

Here is my take on Sketchtorian III:


Supplies: Bo Bunny Snowfall Collection: Snowfall Dot pattern paper, Snowfall pattern paper, Snowfall chipboard, Snowfall stickers; Bo Bunny Double Dot paper (Slate); My Tattered Angels Plain Jane Simply Sheer Matte Mist (rich brown)




CCC April Challenge

Well, it’s an absolute pleasure to be Scrapstorian’s DT member to participate in April’s Catherine and Cathy Create challenge! What a neat idea to do up a LO based on inspiration from a picture! Nice work ladies!

When I saw the pic, I loved the white shiny subway tile back drop, and that is what inspired my layout. The fun splashes of colour all complimented a beautiful picture of my youngest sister. I had a lot of fun with the LO, and was happy to use pink. (I’m the mom of a boys boy!)  ;)




Shar + FabScraps + OUAS


It’s time to tackle another great sketch … And here it is! Again, I’m having fun with the oh-so-FABulous paper from FabScraps and Tim Holtz distress ink and my go to distressing tool … too much fun. The LO is altered a little from the great OUAS sketch but I loved the sketch all the same […]

This was our plan: 1) Choose photos. 2) Set a timer for 20 minutes; start working on your layout. When the timer goes off, leave your […]

The Scrapstorian design team spent last weekend at a scrapbook retreat (like we do several times each year) and tackled a challenge we have been putting off for a long time. We’ve always talked about a musical chairs challenge. It may have been a little stressful but we had a great time. This was our […]

Free Form!


So I think I hit a sketch wall. My last two attempts at layouts from sketches were less than stellar. I just wasn’t happy with the pages. I finished one yesterday, not because I wanted to or because I had an idea, but because I just had to get it off my desk and out […]

More Sketchabilities with Shar!


Well, I am back with another Karan Gerber sketch from Sketchabilties … So much love for Karan! Here is a another capture of how the 12×12 FabScraps (love you guys; keep designing, I’ll keep creating) Summer Nets started out.   Could I find better paper for this marine background?! NOPE! Add in some mists, ink, […]
