Canadian Scrapbooker June Sketchy Challenge

Hi everyone! I created this layout last night after for the June Sketchy Challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. I used the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate Paper. This is one of my favourite releases this year. I love the colours!


Here’s the sketch. We would love to see your creations! Add yours to the Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge Gallery.

Here’s a close up. I used lots of Epiphany Crafts products on this layout. The little butterfly seen here was created with the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 Tool and Bubble Caps, along with a border sticker by Crate Paper. I love this tool for making cute custom embellishments.


Here, I layered two Crate Paper die cut butterflies and topped it off with a custom made brad by Epiphany Crafts. I used some of the yellow paper by Crate Paper with the Round 14 Tool and Bubble Caps and added a brad setting base. Easy and fun!

The background paper is so ‘done’, you almost don’t need to add anything to it except a bit of journalling and a photo.

Thanks for looking!

Hello Rockstar

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share this layout that I created with American Crafts` Lucky Charm Collection.

Hello Rockstar

I used a digital cutting file by Pink Paislee Digitals. I stitched around the stars with gold thread.

I cut the title with my Silhouette Cameo using a font called Allura. I seem to use it a lot lately.
