Scrapbook Generation Sketch Lovers Blog Hop!

Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for June, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link. Here is the list in case you get lost:

Scrapbook Generation blog -

Each blog will share a project using one of the SG sketches as a starting point. You can find the sketches in their books and downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you want to try it out.

I created this sketch using one of the sketches in the Sketches for Scrapbooking Volume 8 book. I highly recommend this volume if you are just getting started with sketches or Scrapbook Generation products! I stuck pretty closely to the actual sketch. I did add the orange strip under the title. For the particular type of Thickers I used, I felt it needed to be "grounded" instead of floating around on the paper. 

Products used: Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup, Dutch Mustard Soup and Soup Staples II (patterned papers, journal spot, date tab); American Crafts Thickers - Forest (title), Silhouette Cameo (leaf and flourish die cuts); Kraft cardstock (Hobby Lobby). 

Next on the hop is Nicole! Leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on June 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.

Some of my Recent Work

Here is a sampling of some of my most recent scrapbook layouts. Most of these layouts were made from or inspired by Scrapbook Generation sketches.
