August 2015


Kim Gowdy here on the blog today, happily sharing my layout inspired by the August Sketchy Challenge. I have been struggling to find time in my craft room these past months…but stay focused to get ALL the sketches completed! The August sketch designed by Kelly Klapstein was very graphic. I swayed from that aspect of the design but otherwise kept pretty true to it. My layout is pretty simple using papers, stickers and ephemera from Fancy Pant’s “ME-OLOGY” collection. The paw print, cut behind the pictures, was done on my Cricut Explore using Close To My Heart’s Artistry cartridge. I also used Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L and the little wood veneer dogs were from Studio Calico. By the way; the topic of my layout…TRUE STORY! Go forth and scrapbook with our sketches. They are always available in our Sketchy Gallery. On time or late…we LOVE to see what you share.

Friday, August 14th already! How did that happen! Soak in your summer days before getting the kids ready for a new school year…there’s still LOTS of time for summer fun and making scrapbooking memories! This week we will visit Judi Cruickshank’s creative space in Owen Sound, Ontario! Let’s take a quick peek into her space. You will LOVE all the cabinets she has for organizing her stash! Here are some photos of my craft room!  My husband Bill and I created it just before I retired and I have gotten so much enjoyment from scrapping in my personal, organized space!  My granddaughters, girls, and my best friend Laurie also enjoy it so much! Thanks Judi for letting us in, it’s a great space for scrapbooking and spending time with your family and friends! LOVING all of your storage!
