New Sketch Idea

I love crafting my scrapbook layouts from sketches. Occasionally, I like to use sketches from other souces outside of CTMH (*gasp* shock, I know!). I trawl pinterest for ideas and one source I like is a shop from the US called Scrapbook Generation. They're a brick & mortar shop in the midwest and they also have a strong online presence. I've been using their sketches for quite a while and they're a nice burst of fresh ideas every now and then.

They offer free sketch ideas a couple times a month. This one is beautiful and uses so many photos!

This sketch was one I wanted to tackle while at Scrapbook Camp last weekend. I printed it out, popped it into my sketch book, and used the Hello Lovely range to create my layout. I haven't added photos yet, only mats and spaces.

Here's the finished layout before photos and journaling.

I love this lil cluster of stickers. It's the perfect title piece for this layout.

SG uses a LOT of banners in their sketches. I'm not a big fan of them being on every.single.sketch! However, there were some banner stickers in this Hello Lovely pack and they fit this page.

A better view of the finished layout. It was easy!

There you go, a quick layout for heaps of photos. Here's what I used to make it! To recreate it at home, shop the links and have a go!

Welcome Home

Does anything say "Welcome Home!" more than a stunning wreath on your front door?
January is National Papercrafting Month. We don't just do cards or pages, we also do "off the page" projects! Most people put a pretty wreath on their front door for Christmas. The holidays are over and it's time to swap out your decor!

For January only, you can create this beautiful piece of home decor to adorn your home. I have mine on the inside of my front door. If you're getting married this year, this is for you! Whip one up and display at your ceremony or reception to welcome your guests, then put it in your new home as a lasting reminder of your big day! If you're pregnant or have just had a baby, this would be oh so sweet in your bub's nursery! Or, why not create this for a milestone anniversary? The options are endless.


The best part of this kit is not only do YOU decide where to place the succulents and greenery, you pick the wording! First name, last name, a greeting, a blessing, you choose! It's really easy to put together. Don't believe me? Watch this quick video!



There are four ways you can get the wreath kit:
  1. Buy it for $28.50—no qualifying purchase required!
  2. Get it for free with a qualifying $90 purchase!*
  3. Get it for free by hosting a party that reaches the second level of Hostess Rewards.
  4. Get it for free when you sign up to be a Consultant!
To purchase this wreath, click here. You'll also need a quilling tool and liquid glass.

No matter how you get your Welcome Home wreath kit—or how many you get—you are going to love how easy this kit makes it to add a little more papercrafted beauty to your life.
