Stuck?! Sketches: August 1st Sketch and Reveal

Hey, everyone! Thought I would show you what I designed for the August 1st reveal over at Stuck?! Sketches. And this reveal is extra special for me as it was a co-challenge with Let's Capture Our Memories, where I co-coordinate the blog for the owner, who supplied the colour combination. So, without any further adieu, drumroll please...

The sketch by the fabulous Laura Whitaker:

The colour combination prepared by LCOM:

And my design followed by a few close-ups:

Anybody guess what collection this is? Yup! That's right! Oxford by Basic Grey, c. 2011. As soon as I saw the colour combination, I thought of this awesome collection I still had on hand (12X12 patterned paper, sticker elements, and pieces). I also used a Simple Stories title sticker and some of their burlap banners, as well as October Afternoon alphas, Maya Road butterfly metal paper clips, Tim Holtz rubons, Making Memories staples, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, and my forever scrapping staple - a Bazzill Basics Paper stitching template with some DMC floss.

Want to see what the Stuck?! Sketches team designed? Click right here. And how about the LCOM girls? Hop on right over here. Now, of course, if you participate in the challenges over at Stuck?! Sketches and LCOM, there are prizes up for grabs. May Arts (2 ribbon spools of winner's choice) and Flourish with a Bling (a $15 gift certificate) are sponsoring the Stuck?! sketch challenge and LCOM itself is offering a $20 gift certificate! You just have to make a layout using this sketch and colour combo and link it up to both reveals on each blog.

Happy scrapping!


  1. This is such a great boy page, love the details and accents! Your pages always inspire me!

  2. Oh boy, you layer like nobody's business. And very impressed that you pulled out a 2011 collection and it looks totally fresh and trendy. Proof that it's all about the scrapper, not the goodies...
