April 1 Inspiration with Stuck?! Sketches

I enjoyed spending April Fools Day in the studio going thru the "pile to scrap". The April 1 Stuck?! sketch was released and these photos jumped off the pile and the layout came together quickly. I used an old Sandylion collection that I have had in my stash for about 10 years... felt good to use some of that paper up. I again also used my favourite EK Success Punch, its funny how I never get tired of putting arrows on my pages. I also saved the manufactures tags off of my new Icebreaker Thermals that Sean got me for Christmas - they were a fun addition to the page. I also placed my first order recently with Cuts2luv for some unique badges... this was my first layout using them :)

3 Evening Pages!

I have been able to spend 3 evenings in a row in my studio! 
A guilty pleasure for sure and getting 3 layouts done in a week a scrappy achievement!

Inspired by Stuck?! Sketches March 15th Sketch 
I got these photos of Liam's last regular season home game scrapbooked.



 I have spent a lot of time at the arena this season with the camera 
Liam and his teammates have all got some great action shots for their photo albums.


These two layouts have been on my "Pile to Scrap" and came together quite quickly, 
one for the 2015 album and one for the 2016, 
I certainly was in a roughing up the edges mode those two nights!

Needed some "Therapy"

Therapy comes in so many forms! For me I needed a day in my studio to just unwind. I didn't get a lot of scrapbooking done on Family Day, but sometimes just tidying up my space and going thru my stash is the best therapy. Because I took the time to do a little cleaning, adding photos to my "pile to scrap" and peeking into some piles of paper that I haven't seen in awhile, it often inspires a quick page or two.

I pulled out some old Imaginations and Sandylion Papers along with some sketch inspiration from Stuck?! Sketches and this layout came together very quickly!

Catching up with Stuck?! Sketches

I haven't had much time to scrapbook over the last two months
as I have been busy travelling for work,
and spending more time in our Northern home... 
I did however make time to get photos developed and do a bit of page planning
so that when I did have time to cocoon in my studio 
there was lots to choose from on "the pile to scrap".

This past weekend I enjoyed getting a few layouts done
and didn't dig too deeply into the pile, 
I worked with recent photos from December and January.

Here are my layouts that were inspired by the Stuck?! Sketches 






And then a couple of layouts that just came together without the use of a sketch!




Hope you are enjoying more scrappy time then me!

Some Scrappy Time on Saturday & Sunday afternoons!

Happy New Year!
I have been away from my studio for over a month and finally got some time
to enjoy playing with my stash and a few sketches!

I'm trying to catch up on the Sketchy Challenge over at Creative Scrapbooker,
here is my take on the 2016 October Sketch!



This one has been laying on the pile to scrap since I saw the sketch in October!

And I also had time to quickly get my first 2017 Sketchy Challenge started.


This layout came together very quickly!

I got on a roll and even had enough time to play along 


This was a fun layout all about our first Oil Game at Roger's Place and meeting Hunter!

I was pleased with how all three layouts turned out and
can't wait to get these hanging on the laundry line in my studio!
Hope you enjoyed some time with your scrappy supplies!
