Do you like pickles?

Well I do, especially when they're crafty.  That being said let me introduce you to The Crafty Pickle.  This fantastic little Etsy shop is home to some pretty awesome flair badges.  I recently did a few layouts for Scrap Your Scraps after receiving some awesome flair from The Crafty Pickle.  I loved the chance to get to work with these goodies, and I actually built two layouts around these terrific flairs!

And now to make things even more awesome I am now a part of the creative team for The Crafty Pickle!  Starting in November I will be contributing layouts and working and showcasing the awesome products featured in the shop!  It's going to be a busy holiday season for sure!

Feeling Inspired? I am!

It's October, so that means it's my month to do an inspired by sketch for Sketch N Scrap, so here is the sketch
Here is my layout using this sketch!

Remember to hop on over to Sketch N Scrap for a chance to win some great prizes!

Also this week I contributed a layout over at Scrap Your Scraps where Solange was talking about inspiration.  So I found a picture on Pinterest that inspired me to create this heart burst background.  To get this look all you need is an ink pad, a pencil with a full intact eraser, and a shape cut out.  You just continuously stamp around the cut out, going thicker closer to the edge and then dispersing as you go outwards.  I really do love how this turned out and will definitely be trying it again.

It's already October!?!?!?

Already? Really?  Well, now that time seems to be flying by like a jet plane it's time again for another Sketch N Scrap reveal.  Here is the sketch for October 1st!

And here is my take on the sketch!

This sketch was a bit of a challenge for me, especially since I didn't have any photos printed that would work for it vertically so I turned the sketch on its side and used some vertical photos I had that were just waiting to be scrapped.

As always there are prizes to be won over at Sketch N Scrap, but you can't win if you don't play, so make sure you pop on over and join us!
