Vivian here with this week's sketch. We're focusing on Miscellany this week and have a fun sketch today that will allow you to play around with the bits and pieces that come in the Miscellany packs, combining them with patterned papers and other embellishments. I adore the variety found in every set of Miscellany: flash cards, vintage images, die cuts, labels, buttons, chipboard shapes, ribbon, etc. There are so many possibilities in that one package!
Without further ado, here is this week's sketch:
Amy used this sketch to whip up a fun birthday card that features one of my favorite pieces from the Cakewalk Miscellany: the pin the tail on the donkey die cut (there are four tails included in the set as well!):Amy used a few other Miscellany items in addition to the donkey:
- bingo card
Let's get a closer look at some of those items here:
I used the sketch to create a layout documenting my daughter's seventh birthday:
I used all of the following from the Cakewalk Miscellany:
- "celebrate" flashcard
- "Happy Birthday!" tag
- chipboard cake
All of the smaller embellishments work well with the fun patterned paper background, which is cut from the Sugar Stix patterned paper, providing a paper-pieced and stitched look with...wait for it...no real work involved. Love that I can get that look quickly!
We'd love to see anything you create with this sketch and Miscellany, whether it's a card, a layout, a tag, etc. Please post your work to our October Afternoon Flickr gallery so that we can see your creations!
