October Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge

It's amazing to me what layouts come from the same sketch challenge. I love seeing how different the pages look using different papers and embellishments. 

Let's Hear It For Creativity!!


I used some discontinued papers from my stash along with a new color cardstock (Paprika). The title is simply foam sticker letters that are white and can be colored to match. How great is that! Unfortunately, I used our ink pads that are water based. 2 days after I colored the letters, they wee still wet! One of the CTMH consultants, Michelle Johns, suggested I put our Liquid Glass on the letters to seal them. When I showed my Monday night scrap club the page, they loved the letters and said they look like ceramic! Be forewarned that you need to use alcohol based inks. Shin Han or our new Tri-Blend markers would do the trick. I used our new Julep Glitter Gems, just because every page needs bling!
the leaves were cut with our Cricut cartridge Artistry. 


Remember, just because you make a mistake doesn't mean you won't be better off for it!!!




Supplies:

  1. White Alphabet Foam Stickers
  2. Liquid Glass
  3. Liquid Glass fine tip applicator
  4. Paprika Cardstock
  5. Tri-Blend Markers
  6. Julep Glitter Gems
  7. Cricut Cartridges
  8. Artistry Cricut Cartridge

I'm enjoying the start of the fall weather in Texas! I'm just really glad the temperature is below 90!!! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by!

The fun part is combining the Color Dare challenges with the sketches so you get a 2 for 1. Can't beat that!!
