If you have been reading my blog for a while then you know I LOVE to use sketches with my layouts and cards and I chose to use the sketch from this weeks Scrapbook Challenges, sketch 248. Here is what I came up with.
I absolutely LOVE how this one came out. I used only my stamps on this one, no cricut at all! The letters were cut out after I stamped them with my Stampin UP! set, Schoolbook Serif Alphabet. The cupcakes are from a retired Stampin UP! set called Big Bold Birthday, along with the "make a wish" saying, and the oh so cute Banner Stamps are from Pink Persimmon, a stamp company I just happened to find last weekend while I was searching online for some banner stamps. The background paper is Stampin UP! Sahara Sand, the other solid colors are also Stampin UP!, Pear Pizzazz, Pacific Point, Real Red, Bashful Blue and Whisper White, the patterned paper is from the DCWV Celebrations stack. I thought it looked very manly:-). Of course, I also added twine from the Twinery in Honeydew. All the ink colors are also Stampin UP! in the same colors as the paper.
Here is the sketch that the layout is based on:
If you are a scrapper, I recommend checking out their weekly sketch challenges.
Now onto some blog candy, Pink Persimmon has graciously donated these oh so cute banner stamps for my giveaway today!
I just love these stamps and banners are all the rage now in scrapbooking. Just leave me a comment below and I would love if you became a follower if you aren't already. I will accept entries until Monday night and draw a winner Tuesday morning.
Onto your next stop, Jill over at the Scrapoholic. I can't wait to see what she has made for the hop!
