My Scraps & More Sketch #98

Hello again! It's time for our second sketch of the month. Today's sketch is brought to us by our Guest Sketch Designer, Heather Leopard. But before we get to Heather's super fun sketch, lets learn a little about her 1st......

1) Heather has enjoyed capturing and documenting memories as far back as she can remember but it was the birth of her children and her desire to capture candid photos & stories for her children that reignited her passion for scrapbooking. Heather designs for American Crafts and Gossamer Blue kit club and manages social media for Scrapbook Circle kit club. Heather leads marketing initiatives for a major computer company and lives in Cypress, Texas with her husband, two daughters and her bonus son.

2) Tell us about your scrappy style/habits: I consider my style to be a Layered Chic, mixing, matching and layering multiple patterns and colors in fun and unique ways. I usually scrap a couple of times a week after the kids are kissed goodnight and tucked in bed and while the hubby is watching one of his "guy" shows. I usually have the TV playing in the background to keep me company.

3) Describe your sketch making process: When I’m creating a sketch, I like to look at the products first to see what I want to play with. Each collection is unique and there’s usually a paper or embellishment that is begging to be used – from doilies to 3x4 cards or in today’s case, fun patterns and flair. I also determine what picture or pictures I want to include so I know how much space to allocate to them. Afterall, that’s the reason for the layout.

4) 5 products/trends or techniques that are your favorite right now? These change all the time for me but I guess that’s why they call them trends. Right now, I’m particularly fond of using metallics, especially gold. Other techniques I love to use are layers upon layers of paper and ephemera, supersized die cut shapes with paper pieced backgrounds, adding a splash of color using watercolors or mist drops, and last but not least, combining pattern papers to create fun backgrounds.

My Scraps & More Sketch #96

Hey everyone! I can't believe it's less then a week till Christmas and then the New Years! This is our last sketch of the year and it is brought to us by this months Guest Sketch Designer, Diana Fisher. Before we get to her fabulous sketch here is a little about Diana...

1) My name is Diana Fisher and I live in upstate NY. I am married with one 8-year-old son and work full-time as the marketing and brand director of an education company specializing in college planning.

2) Tell us about your scrappy style/habits: I scrapbook most often in the evenings or on the weekends when I can grab an hour here and there. I always have a cup of coffee with me and like to watch my favorite Netflix obsessions while I work.

3) Describe your sketch making process: I often start a sketch with a product or picture in mind. Sometimes I even take the time of year into account — adding more pictures or less depending on what photos a scrapbooker might be looking to use (special events, a day in the life, holidays, etc.) I also take into account the brands or kind of product being used. If the manufacturer offers mists, I will include splatter in the sketch. If they have tags or enamel dots, I will show those as options as well.

4) Tell us 5 products/trends or techniques that are your favorite right now: I love the use of small photos, small pieces of layered papers, ink droplets, welded or loopy lettering for titles, and the enamel dots. Put all of that on a white card stock and I'm all set.
