Hello! Kim here with a quick share of my take on last month’s Sketchy Challenge! Kerry designed this neat sketch for October, try as I did…I wasn’t feeling the ‘angle’ for the photos I wanted to work with. SWITCH IT UP Instead, I worked with elements of the sketch! I moved, shuffled, altered my papers and pictures until I was happy…sometimes it’s a LONG process! I must say I was quite happy with the finished results. PRODUCT LOVE! Simple Stories’ ‘Vintage Blessings’ collection was such an awesome choice for the photos I was working with. The soft, muted colors of the papers, embellishments and quotes were perfect for the old family photos I was scrapbooking!  Die –hard story tellers, need not fear! After I took the photo of my layout, I did go back and use my Stabilo pens to document the names of those in the photos! I needed…

Kim here today to share my take on the March Sketchy Challenge. This fun sketch was designed by the talented Kerry Engel; who shared several takes of this sketch in our Sketchy Gallery. I choose to work with this sketch while on retreat a few weeks back. I am not a productive scrapbooker at retreats because I socialize and enjoy the company around me, I find it hard to create with so much going on but wouldn’t miss them for the world…retreats are just plain good for the soul! I used paper and die-cuts from Kaisercraft’s “Me Collection”. It was the perfect retreat paper…I grabbed 3 Chameleons pens and randomly coloured some of the doodles on the page…all while keeping up with the stories going on around me! I grabbed my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner to put everything in place! My title is made from older Tim Holtz…

Hi everyone,Kim here ? Thanks for checking into the CSM blog today. I just wanted to share this month’s sketch, designed by Kelly Klapstein. This month’s sketch was designed with card making in mind, ‘tis the season of making, giving and receiving cards! It’s a great sketch! I however used it as a starting point for a layout. That’s is the cool thing about sketches…they are simply a starting point for creativity. I used Close to My Heart’s “City Sidewalk” collection. I ADORE everything about this collection, it’s full of fun, whimsical papers, die cuts and glittery accents and also has a corresponding Cricut cartridge to keep the fun going strong! I decided to make a gift card holder while I had all this fun product out, I’ll need a few more before December 25th! As you can see, I did not follow the sketch for the card…but plan to…

Hello! Kim here! Just a quick share of my layout inspired by the November Sketchy Challenge! When I first saw the sketch designed by Kelly Klapstein, I instinctively thought of columns of journaling!
