{Most Favorite} Creative Scrappers Sketch 297 Reveal

Hello everyone and welcome to August!  The first of the month means a new sketch from Creative Scrappers and it's a fun one!  We've partnered with The Cut Shoppe this month, and I used the Candy Hearts cut file with some Pink Paislee Fancy Free goodies to highlight a photo of my sweet niece.  She's precious <3.

I opted to cut Candy Hearts from textured white cardstock.  My original thought was to use white on white, but the Fancy Free papers had me thinking of watercoloring, so I decided to grab my waterbrush and my Distress Inks.  After my hearts dried, I stuck them to my layout and sewed around the green ones.

I used two barcode strips from the Fancy Free papers to create the perpendicular pieces and sewed them as well.  I fashioned a journal spot with a cut circle and a scalloped circle with some sewing.

I used embellishments from the Fancy Free goodies as well as the "That Smile" printable Kristine created.  

I also sprinkled some Heidi Swapp Color Shine ink to add interest.  And for some fun embellishments, I also fussycut some of the flowers and popped some up with 3D dots.

Those buttons and enamel pieces are so fun!  I used the "Most Favorite" as my title.

Here's a look at the sketch, and don't forget to link up!  Ashley has also created a fun cut file you can grab for a discount through August using code TCSCS25 - it's called "Inner Circle".  Go check out the other design team members' layouts on the Creative Scrappers blog, too.

I hope you are inspired to use the sketch in your own way this month.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great week.
