Earlier this month on the Lily Bee blog, I had a layout using a sketch that Becky Fleck provided me.
Lily Bee Supplies: Sweet Shoppe Collection (Jujube paper, Gumball paper, Lemon Drop paper, Jelly Bean paper, Licorice Whip paper, letter stickers, label stickers, chipboard stickers, chit chat stickers, Embellishment bundle)
This layout came together very quickly when I realized that I had the perfect photos to go with the yellow and blue color scheme in the Sweet Shoppe collection.
I was excited to see the stitching in the sketch because sometimes I forget to take out my sewing machine, but I always love the look of sewing on my pages when I remember!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the Lily Bee blog and PageMaps this month and check out more awesome sketches and layouts! :)

I blogged at the Evalicious blog yesterday with a layout featuring lots of Evalicious stamps! As you know, Eve recently had a shop update and there are SO many new awesome stamps in the shop! I love them all, so I wanted to use a bunch of them on a layout.
My layout was inspired by Facebook status updates, or the popular “currently” posts that you’ve seen on blog posts and layouts. I cut up strips of camera patterned paper and notched them so they look like arrows. Then I did the same for white cardstock and stamped various Evalicious stamps on them.
I added some circle stamps and used a 1” circle punch to punch them out and adhered them to my layout using dimensional foam adhesive. I also included a camera badge button.
I loved this easy way to use lots of stamps in different colored inks on my layout!

In the spirit of what Write.Click.Scrapbook. is all about, I'm sharing three tips today!
Oh Life, all 366 days!
Our June gallery theme is Year 4 Favorite. My layout was inspired by Katie Ehmann's post about only using papers on your layout. A myriad of papers!
My layout: Date Night
Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts) + patterned paper (American Crafts Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, Studio Calico) + stamps (American Crafts) + ink (Memento) + pen (Sharpie) + punches (Fiskars, Marvy Uchida, McGill) + digital graphic (Ali Edwards) + digital die cutter (Silhouette America) + adhesives (Scotch, Glue Dots, Tombow) + stapler (Advantus) + font (Blackout)
I cut strips of patterned paper. Then I cut them into squares. Then from there I cut the squares diagonally into triangles and lined them up and adhered them to my layout.
Also, in case you missed it this week... I hosted a week of posts at Write.Click.Scrapbook. all about hybrid scrapbooking and crafting!
