Here are some of the layouts I created with these sketches. Some of the photographs are a bit skewed, but I promise in real life they are straight. The sketches give the measurments for everything. It makes it easy to get a lot of scrapping done quickly - unless you are me and then you are still slow. I modified most of the sketches to fit my pictures, but it was sure nice to have a jumping off point.
The large soccer balls are messed up because I deleted the names of the kids.
I made the pink flowers with twistle - never get rid of old stuff - you might find a use for it. The centers of the flowers are ribbon rosettes.
Can you see the little school of fish? They even have a teacher - top picture on second page.
I hand cut the curious that is in red.
I hand cut the red lettering.
Hand cut title. The border is a flocked trim that is self adhesive.

The colors are a bit off. I'm not sure what is up with my scanner. I promise everything matches in real life.
This pink one is a scrap lift from someone. I can't remember if I saw the original on Twopeas or if I found it on a blog, but I love it. I used pearl paint to make the dots. I also used up an old vellum scrap on this. I love the shape of the card. The yellow flower is silk. This red heart card is a Becky Fleck sketch. The hearts are mounted on chipboard with the red heart being the thickest so that it stands out. This is the card I made for our moms for Mother's Day. The image is embossed and sanded. The butterfly is covered with micro beads. It didn't photograph very well.
The lady bug scanned really dark. It has black glitter on it.
I often leave my cards without a greeting on the front. That way I can grab a card and add the greeting as I need it. My family loves to get homemade cards and if I give them a store bought card they are disapointed. I am good to go for a few months.

In frustration he picked up the hand towel and shook it, and we heard the little tooth hit the floor. After we found the tooth and put it in an envelope we made it up to school before the bell rang. He greeted his teacher with a gap in his smile. He is the last kid in his class to lose a front top tooth. This was a very important day for him.
I lost my tooth while Mom was brushing my teeth. It accidentally fell out while she was brushing them. Once it fell out, I was looking all over the rug, but I couldn’t find it. I got so mad that I picked up the hand towel and shook it. I heard this little bang on the floor, and I leaned down and picked up my tooth. The Tooth Fairy gave me five bucks; plus I got to keep my tooth.
