Sketchy Thursday June Guest Dt...

Sketchy Thursdays is having a call for a guest designer, and here is my entry. I took this photo of my daughter, Natalie, and have been waiting for just the right inspiration to scrapbook it. When I saw this sketch, and these yummy Kioshi papers from Basic Grey, I knew that they would work together to make a pretty page for my beautiful daughter. I made the flowers myself (I am sooo loving handmade flowers right now)The white flower is made from layers of white shimmer paper, vellum, and cardstock, and layered on top of a white doily that has been sprayed with various shades of Shimmerz: Ruby, Mango Madness, and Bed Of Roses. I attached all of the layers together by sewing a button in the center. The purple flowers were cut with my Cricut out of various scraps of purple cardstock, and the centers are a scallop circle punch by Martha Stewart, with some purple gems I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby. After making the purple flowers, I spritzed them and the lace ( which was originally cream colored) with Rock-A-Fella Blue Shimmerz (kind of a purple-y blueberry color). The diecut title was cut with my Cricut and Once Upon A Princess cartridge, and embellished with Stickles. Thanks for looking, wish me luck!


  1. WOW! Neat! Good luck!

    Also, thanks, thanks, thanks for describing your handmade white flower! The idea to use different types of products for petals on the same flower -- brilliant!
