Scrapbook Generation

Sketch artisit Allison Davis, who runs Scrapbook Generation with her mom, is doing an open call for Creative Team members for her new website.  The new site will be dedicated to sketches all month long and that is where the new creative team will kick in... sounds like a plan to me!  So, here is my take on the sketches she posted...

Sketch #1


"Hula Hands"
This one will eventually have a second matching page where I will journal about the hula lessons and the history of the song they danced to, it was sooo cool!

My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary Little Miss Muffet: "That's My Girl" (purple posies paper), "Delight" (purple plumes paper), and "Delight" (brown polka dot)
Quickutz: Magnolia Grand Font
CTMH: Just Blooms Posie (leaves), Cocoa Ink 
Colors: Hollyhock, Colonial White, Cocoa
Misc: Twill Ribbon, Velvet Rick Rack, Buttons, DMC Floss, and the Cutter Bee Piercing Bugs

Sketch #2

My little girl doesn't know it yet, but this will be her birthday card in a few short weeks... I cannot believe she is going to be seven!  As soon as I saw the circles on this sketch, I had to make these flowers using the Quickutz Nesting Circles, the machine-stitched winding vine continues the circle theme, and I rotated the sketch counter-clockwise, just cause it looked a little better with the vines growing "up" than across  :o)

Basic Grey Euphoria Bless (stripe)
Alpha print paper scrap (I think it was Heidi Grace?)
Bazzill Basics Paper Leaves
Quickutz Nesting Circles
CTMH: Big Brads, Cardstock
Colors: Heavenly Blue, White Daisy, Blush
Misc: Sewing Machine and Thread

Sketch #3

I am having so much fun scrapping our Hawaii trip from earlier this year... Hawaii is actually the only thing that I have scrapped so far from 2010!  I need to get moving and quick!  In an effort to squeeze in a few more photos, I did another one of my pull out tricks behind the 5x7... I will just slit the page protector and you can pull the ribbons to see four more photos!  I made a number of "variations" on this layout, here are a few. First I used a 5x7 in place of the two vertical photos on the left, second I changed the placement of the wallet size photos on the right, and third I let the floral pattern act as my accent paper on the far left (since it was so pretty) and last I journaled right on the background.   I used that same background pp on the second page, just turning it 180 degrees so the floral patterns are on the outer  sides of the layout. I still "see" the sketch, but I really made it my own and made it work for my photos.  Here is a close-up of where the extra photos pull-out...

BoBunny Calypso Dream (background)
BoBunny Calypso Life (stripe)
Making Memories: Cranberry Paint

CTMH: Just Blooms, Big Brads, Bitty Brads, Dimensional Elements Solos, RickRack
Colors: Honey, Dutch Blue, and Cranberry 
Misc: ribbon, fuzzy big brads (wish I could remember where I got these!), Sanding Block, Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser

Happy Scrapping!
