A Sassy New Design Team

Sassy Lil' Sketches

I've missed being on a sketch design team since I finished my term with Sketchabilities, so I applied and got on another design team called Sassy Lil' Sketches. It is worth is just to be on that team so I can say I'm a Sassy Lil' designer. They release a new sketch every week for cards and layouts, along with DT samples. Feel free to peruse the site for great ideas or you can participate by linking your own creations to the sketch post for a chance to win monthly prizes or load your projects into the gallery. I'll only be posting one layout a month, on the 4th Tuesday, starting at the end of August. I've been using their sketches of late for myself anyways so it won't be too taxing.

Cindy Layout
My recent Cindy layout was based on the June 14th Sassy sketch.

Christmas Layout
I also made a Christmas layout after I was inspired by the May 21st reveal. Here is the sketch:
I saw the stacked photos as a column of presents and interspersed the photos among them. I also moved the vertical strips from the right to the left side of the page so it balanced out the stack of presents.

I changed the circle with the journaling on top into a house with journaling since it matched my Christmas theme better. The house was actually the packaging for some ribbon. I glued some small pictures onto the windows. I drew the wood trim with a black pen onto the photos. I cut the shutters so they open a bit.

Here is a close up of one window.

On top of the presents, I drew a giant bow and had the ribbon cascade down the presents. I colored it in with some Stickles glitter glue.

Feel free to interpret a sketch however you want. This wasn't specifically a Christmas sketch, nor were these Christmas papers or embellishments. I used the Neighborhood collection from Crate Paper.  

I'll be back with an official Sassy reveal on August 23rd. In the meantime, be sure to check out the site and be inspired by all the versatile sketches and gorgeous layouts. 

Take care,
