My Scraps & More Sketch #94

TGIF!! I don't know about you all but I plan on spending some time scrapping this weekend and this sketch by our Guest Sketch Designer for the month, Michelle Gallant is the perfect way to get the creative juices flowing. But before we get to the sketch here is a little about our talented Michelle...


1. My name is Michelle Gallant and I live in NB Canada with my hubby and 2 kids. 7 years ago I went to a scrapbooking class with a friend and I was instantly hooked! With 2 hockey playing kids my life is pretty busy so I try to scrap whenever I can, even on my lunch hour sometimes! lol

2. I like to scrap in a clean and organized area so I clean up after every LO. I have no idea what my style is, I like to try a lot of different techniques but I don't like to get my hands dirty.

3. Sketch making is new to me, I like to create my sketches from a LO I've already created.

4. My favorite things in scrapbooking right now are: triangles, black outlining/doodling, white backgrounds, gold and layering.



Here is Michelle's sketch, Sketch #94 and the design teams take on it.

My Scraps & More Sketch #92

Hello everyone! Today we have another guest sketch artist.  Tracy is one of our very talented design team members and she has designed a fabulous sketch!

Make sure to visit her on her blog: A Scrap at a Time

Lets get to know Tracy a little better......

Hi, I’m Tracy and I live in the Piney Woods of East Texas. I swore when I went away to college I would be moving off somewhere to the mountains or other part of the world yet once we started a family we came right back here. Amazing how children change your views on life. My husband and I just celebrated our 20 year anniversary this past May with an 8 day cruise to the Caribbean all by ourselves. We love our children but sometimes you just have to get away. We have 3 children that pretty much run our lives and I wouldn't have it any other way. Jacob is 13 and in 7th grade, so we are immersed in football season right now. Austin is 9 and in 4th grade and rebels against being involved in anything (kind of a nice change). Our baby girl Autumn is 7 and in 2nd grade. If she had her way I’d be running to anything and everything 24/7. I've made her knock her choices down to one. She chose dance, of course between regular classes and her dance team it seems like we go 24/7. Somewhere in there I fit in a job as a pre-k aide and am currently working on getting my masters and teaching certificate. Yes it’s a busy life.

I of course find time for my scrapbooking. I've been on the My Scraps and More design team since shortly after the store opened. I've loved being a part of this amazing team. I have also been a member of the Scrap Friendzy and Scrap Fit design teams. I've been scrapping (what we now call scrapping) for the last 10 years, though even back in high school I was putting together memory and photo albums. I just didn't have all the cool supplies that we have now. Probably a good thing since I couldn't afford it back then.

I love sketches. I have used them for my inspiration for many years. They are such a great jumping off point. I will admit that I do not create sketches for myself to use. I do love creating them but when I create sketches for others to use I make my page first and then I create the sketch off the page I created. So I hope you all enjoy my sketch and I will keep using everyone else’s.


Here is Tracy's sketch and the design teams take on it. Sketch #92

World Card Making Day BLOG HOP!

Hello and welcome to the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog blog hop!! Today, each of our design team members has created a CARD sketch to celebrate World Card Making Day. That’s TEN different sketches!!!

There will be TWO prizes given out for the blog hop:

1. One person will win a $10 gift certificate to the store just for commenting on and following one of the designers blog posts. I will choose one of the DT members blogs and then choose a random commenter from that post. 

2. Another winner will be chosen from all the card sketch entries uploaded to the In Linkz on the My Scraps & More Sketch Blog. For each card you create based on a sketch, create a DIFFERENT link up. So if you complete all 10 sketches, you will need to do 10 link-ups! (On your card link please be sure to mention whose sketch you used and link back to the My Scraps & More Sketch blog. If you’d like you can also leave the DT member a comment with a link to your card so they can see what you did with their sketch.)

Here is the grand prize for the card sketch blog hop:

All comments and card sketches for the Blog Hop must be linked up by Monday, October 6th at 12 pm EST.

BUT, if you don’t complete all the card sketches by Monday, that’s OK….you can still upload them through the end of the month for the monthly prize drawing on the sketch blog! The more sketches you do, the more chances you have to win!
