SOUS / Whimsical Designs Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to the Inspiration Blog Hop by SOUS and Whimsical Designs!!!



Thats right, Stuck On You Sketches and Whimsical Designs has teamed up to give you plenty of inspiration!!!

If you have arrived here from Shelly's Blog - Shellys Card Blog then you are right on track, if not then you want to start at the beginning at Stuck On You Sketches because you don't want to miss out on any of the fabulous creations the design teams have for your inspiration.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this hop:

Prairie Bird Boutique  - You can win a package of Shabby Crinkle Ribbon


SK Digis - you can win a $6 voucher to Sonia's store


For the hop we had a fabulous sketch created by Sandi, who is a designer for Stuck On You Sketches.


I am a pretty clean and simple scrapbook page person. I usually don't do a whole lot of embellishments, inking, fru fru, etc. Therefore I stuck pretty much to the sketch adding a little bit of stitching with my sewing machine.



My title was cut on my Cameo using a Silhouette Studio cut file.


For my patterned papers I chose colors that mimicked the colors of the flowers my Grandson was holding.


And, of course, I had to add a few flowers of my own.


Supplies used: card stock - white; patterned papers - Delight, Glow & Delicate in Hello Sunshine and Dreamy & Oh So Dandy in Peachy Keen all by American Crafts; journaling spot - Glitz; Silhouette Studio cut file; flowers - Prima; brads - my stash; sewing machine; Pop Dots.

Here is a little blog candy you can win:
