loved | TMS 657

I can hardly believe that we're over halfway through May! I blink and another week has passed me by. 

Here is this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch for y'all- number 657. 

I kept it pretty close to the design, but didn't want to use circles, so I used a cutfile from Cut to You to represent the background and overall look of the sketch. 

I used the April Hip Kit Club kit for this layout and an epoxy flair from ScrappinHappyStudio. 

Please be sure to check out the fantastic take from the talented designers and enter your take on the sketch! :)

Easter 2022 TMS 656

 Here is this week's sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches, sketch #656! 

It sure is a fun one! I utilized the pocket to hold photo tags from our Easter gathering at our home this year. Three of our children and three of our grandchildren were able to get together and we had a super fun and joyful weekend! 

Each tag has a photo on either side with small details written.

There are a lot of fun details on this layout and I really loved thinking outside the box using the fantastic sketch! 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a beautiful day! :)

His Inner Cat | TMS 655

 I'm kind of struggling with the fact that it's already May! April flew by, but I suppose that's what happens when one is keeping busy! We bought 20 acres in late December, and with the weather finally nice, we've spent most every weekend working on our land. It's so satisfying! I also started working for Tyson in early April, so I've also been adjusting to working again after months of not doing so. I'm starting to get my groove, but I've allowed myself a lot of grace in the process. 

Here is the first Tuesday Morning Sketches Sketch for May- sketch #655:

My layout:

Our dog acts like a cat so much! He's quite the character and I thought this fun sketch would be perfect to document this. I used my Silhouette to cut a giant paw print, which I backed in black cardstock and stitched around it. 

A cluster and some more stitching added the finishing details.

playground fun | TMS 654

 Hi y'all! I feel like I blinked and April passed me by! 

It's Tuesday, which means it's time for a new Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch. This is sketch #654:

Oddly enough, this one stumped me a bit. In retrospect, I have a couple of ideas that I could have used that would have been a little more true to the sketch, but at the end of the day, I like how this one turned out, and hopefully my layouts reads true enough to the sketch. 

I cut the cut file with my Silhoutte and then removed the negative space and placed it back within the paper it was originally cut from. The cut file itself is backed with vellum, which is just a tad larger than the cut file. Only the center areas are adhered to the paper which creates dimension. 

We'd love to see what you come up with using this sketch- be sure to share with us over at the TMS blog!

Snow Much Fun | TMS 653

 Hello! Today I'm sharing my layout created for Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch #653.

This weeks sketch:

Thankfully, Spring has decided to make an appearance, but this sketch inspired me to create a layout about Winter. 

In addition to the sketch inspiration, this was also created for a monthly crop cut file challenge on the Peartree Cutfiles facebook group. This challenge was to incorporate something hidden, which I did- hidden journaling:

Here are a couple of detail images:

I do hope you'll join along with this great sketch over at TMS

3 MONTHS - TMS #653

 Hey y'all! It's Tuesday, which means another sketch up on Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Here's this week's fun sketch:

And my layout:

I wanted to play off the curvy end, so I decided to cut a large "3" using my Silhouette, which was perfect for scrapping these photos of our grandsons 3-month photo shoot. 
This is a pretty simple page, but I added some hand stitching around the "3" and placed most of  the embellishments on top of it. It's raised with some foam to add dimention. 
Some doodling around the perimeter of the base and some ink/watercolor splashes finished it off. 

Paper and stickers are Echo Park
epoxy flair is from ScrappinHappyStudio
letters are Citrus Twist (an old kit)
mists are Heidi Swapp and Shimmerz

I'd love to see your take on this weeks sketch! Visit the TMS blog to share your card or layout!
