Keepin' It Real Layout for S.I.T.

I'm on the Sketches In Thyme blog today with this layout. I did something a little different and used an assignment my daughter did in school. I love her answers and having a record of her printing and spelling in grade 1.
Here is the sketch:
This was a real stash buster. I liked the background paper with the world on it so I used the Pink Paislee Atlas collection as my base. Then I used random die cuts that came from garage sales. I added some Shimelle buttons and painted the title.
Pink Paislee - Atlas
Shimelle - Go Now Go Buttons
Blue paint
Pink Paislee - Take Me Away Thickers

Oh, Hello There Layout

I needed some inspiration so I headed over to Paper Issues and looked at this month's sketch. I grabbed my bag of Amy Tangerine products, found a photo to match and had a layout done in no time. I decided on Amy Tangerine because I recently went to a scrappy garage sale and got embellishments to match to mountain of papers.
Here is the sketch. I stayed pretty true to it.
Amy Tangerine - Better Together
Embellishments - On A Whim and Finder's Keepers
Yellow twine
Pink sequins
Dollarama flower sticker

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook for P.H.P.

I'm up on the Paper House Productions blog today to show you the Autumn Woods Life Organized Collection. Today I have used a traveler's notebook to document a trip through a neighbour's property. He is 95 years old and has the coolest yard in town. We visited during the fall so this collection is perfect for this adventure. I completed three different spreads in the notebook.
I used a little bit of everything in my notebook and mixed in alphas and papers from other collections too. The first spread has some fussy cutting of the leaves and the pretty stick-on pocket. For the second spread, I used Lake Life papers and a cut file to create the background. I wanted something that looked like a maze so this tree cookie was perfect! You can pick it up for free in the Paper Issues store. Again, I think I almost used one of everything in this collection on this spread. The Life Organized products are great for a traveler's notebook since planners are about the same size.
This is my favourite page with the washi tape acting as a border and the guffelwarf pictures! I hope you take a moment to read the journaling and check out how cute the different products look all clustered together.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Panda Party Layout

This sketch and mood board from Let's Get Sketchy made me think of the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection. I only was able to buy some of the papers so I chose a picture of my nephew at his panda party knowing I have some panda stickers from Paper House Productions. I added some letters, sequins, gems and twine from the stash and like how it turned out.
Here is the challenge:
I used lots of the colours from mood board such as black, orange and blue. The twist was to scrap a boy subject.
Crate Paper - Cool Kid
Studio 77 alphas
Simple Stories - Emoji Love stickers
Fancy Pants - Oh Deer sequins
Yellow twine
Jillibean Soup - Souper Celebration word stickers
Paper House Productions - 2" Panda stickers
Sassafras alphas
