You & Me........Enjoy Everyday Moments.

I've been playing around on my Silhouette Cameo, creating sketches a fair bit recently.

I must admit it seems to make the whole creative process flow a little more smoothly.  I create the sketch in the software first where everything's to scale, and I can even use a lot of the shapes/embellies that I will eventually be putting on the page.

This means I get to see exactly how the finished page will look........a big bonus for the procrastinator in me!

I don't use this method for every page, especially the artsy, fartsy throw everything on there kinda thing, but for DT work where I'm trying to utilize as much of a paper collection as possible..........awesome!

So that's how it helps me.

The bonus for get the sketch (if you feel inclined or desperate enough to use it! lol).

Everyone's a winner.

So, today I'm posting the first layout from my Two Scrapbook Friends DT kit using the Modern Miss collection from Bo Bunny.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my page.....You & Me.

This collection has a co-ordinating 12"x12" sheet of chipboard die cuts so I used lot's around here........

and for the banner too...........

I rubbed a white gelato onto a heart embossed brayer (American Crafts) and randomly added a little pattern to the background.

That's pretty much it other than a little stitching to finish things off.

Drop me a comment if you manage to use the sketch as I'd love to stop by and see the results.

Have a great day.....enjoy the sunshine,



I am always desperate for your sketches. This is an awesome page that you have designed. I like everything about it, starting with the woodgrain background. Another great job, Jayne!


Cool! Lots of details to look at! Way to go!


Gorgeous, so much detail!
