I want all the snuggles.

It's time again for another layout for The Crafty Pickle!  This time I grabbed some of the Cozy Fall flair set available in the shop and set to work.  There's just something I love about having all my embellishments work together to paint a larger picture and I think that definitely happened here.  There is a light and airy feel to the layout and the dark flair badge helps bring out the browns in the photo.  I also grabbed a big 'ol handful of various sequins from The Crafty Pickle.  I had some Christmas, Fall, and Winter sequins so I mixed them all together and created a huge pocket for them with gold striped vellum.  I love the peekaboo colours just hinted at behind the gold!  Hope you enjoy and have a crafty week!

I made a card?

I know I know, it's weird.  It's like putting on someone elses shoe or something,  it should fit but it still feels a little uncomfortable.  I hoping I'll start to enjoy it though, as it really shouldn't be that big of a leap from scrapping!  From now on, every 20th of the month I will be making a card for Sketch N Scrap.  I will definitely enjoy the challenge, and when all is said and done I'll have a nice stockpile of cards I can use when I'm in a pickle!  So here is the card sketch we had.

And here is my card in all its glory :)

I've also been a little busy beaver making layouts.  Here is a contributing layout I made for a post over at Scrap Your Scraps  I can't believe I actually managed to scrapbook about Christmas day, and I finished the layout, that's a big one for me!

One Foxy Lady

It's time for my first layout for the new year for The Crafty Pickle!  Taniesa has been working overtime getting lots of new fun flairs and other items ready for her shop.  I am loving the sequins that she's offering now!  Be sure to pop on over to her Etsy shop and take a look!

For my layout today I used two flair badges from her Autumn collection.  I love the versatility of these badges, and how cute is that fox!

And here is my layout!  I was inspired from a layout by Martha Bonneau at Cocoa Daisy

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a crafty day!

Time for a Twistback

  For 2015 Sketch 'N' Scrap has a new challenge for us.  It's call Twistback Thursdays!  Every month they will dig deep into their sketchy vault and give us an oldie but a goodie to work with!  There will also be an additional challenge to go along with the sketch too!  This month our challenge was to combine an older paper and embellishments and a new paper and embellishments!  So here we have a sketch from 2012.

So here is my take on this sketch!

As always there is a chance to win a great prize, but you can't win if you don't play, so hop on over and give it a try!

It's a New Year of scrapping!

And that means a whole new round of sketches from Sketch N Scrap.  I'm on the design team for one more term and am super excited to get to create for them!  To kick things off here is the January 1st sketch from them

And here is layout inspired by this sketch.  I didn't change too much about this sketch when I created my layout and I loved the winter inspiration so much I decided to do a Holiday layout.

Remember to head on over to Sketch N Scrap and play along with this months challenge, as always there are prizes but you can't win if you don't play!
