Creative Memories Delight with Sketches in Thyme

Hello, welcome to my first layout of my beautiful new niece.  I found this to be an interesting sketch.  It was fun to use of some scraps of old Creative Memories papers.

Here's the sketch for this week from Sketches in Thyme.  I liked the print on the right side so I put the strips on the left side.

Graphic 45 Amazing Slimline for Atlantic Hearts Sektch Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog today.  I have created a card using Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge's latest sketch.  I used some new to me papers, I recently picked up at Tuesday Morning.  I acquired a 6x6 paper pack, the April and the solid Fashion Forward papers.

Here is this week's sketch:

I used some the back of the April paper for the background.  I used pieces from the other side to decorate.  I cut the "You are Colorful" strip and the ladies from the front.

Here I added the die cut from the solid papers.

Dreaming Tree German Bus Box for Bitten by the Bug 2 and Double Trouble Colab

Welcome to my inspiration for the last Bitten by the Bug 2's Layer up!  While Double Trouble Challenge has some twist you can find the details from the above link. I went with lots of layers but left out the cozy and cuddly.  I used a variety of materials to create another Dreaming Tree German Bus.  

This one was a commission piece for a coworkers daughter.  Her daughter's room is butterflies. 

Each part of the box begins with twelve pieces.  I used glue, time and patience to adhere each layer to create the box.

Then, I layered this box up with a sturdy card stock first.  Second a beautiful glossy embossed butterfly paper.  Third some metallic silver details and acetate windows.  Finally, gems to accent.

The back side.

As I said this box is sturdy and has a few layers in the bottom including decorative butterfly paper.
