Got Sketch Update

Hello Got Sketch fans & subscribers,
It has been quite some time since my last sketch post as I'm sure you have noticed.
I will no longer be updating the Got Sketch blog and offering new online classes.
Don't worry, the blog will remain up for your paper-crafting inspiration needs.  :)
(The terms of sketch use will still apply.)
However, I will be discontinuing the availability to purchase the Got Sketch Class Downloads.

Big thanks to the talented GS creative Layouts & Cards teams who helped inspire many scrapbookers and card-makers with their awesome artwork through the years.

You can still catch up with me on Facebook and Instagram though.  Have a great rest of the year!

December Daily: Day 25


MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Got Sketch is getting in on the December Daily fever!
Come and visit us for a daily sketch until December 25th to see what our designers are doing with their own personal albums.

Day 25

Designer Notes:  Since my layouts are 8 x 8 I placed patterned paper on both sides of my picture.  I added journaling strips to the top left corner of my picture to make may layout look more balanced.  I cut a journaling strip from patterned paper and added some fun trees as well.  I love the look of dimension so I made sure to use pop dots on one element on each page.  Here I popped the journaling strips, ornament, and pink tree.  

SOURCES  Cardstock:  The Paper Studio.  Patterned Paper and Journaling Spot: Echo Park.  Ribbon:  Jillibean Soup.  #25:  American Craft.  Pen: Zig. 


::::::::::
SOURCES  Bazzill (cardstock); Chatterbox (gel sticker); Tattered Angels (glimmer mist); American Crafts (numbers 25); chipboard heart (source unknown); VersaMagic (liquid chalk); WRMK chomper; stitching

December Daily: Day 24


Got Sketch is getting in on the December Daily fever!
Come and visit us for a daily sketch until December 25th to see what our designers are doing with their own personal albums.

Day 24

Each Christmas Eve we let the children open one present which is always Christmas pajamas so #24 was perfect for these pictures.  I stayed true to the sketch and added tags for my journaling.  I couldn't resist the cute snowman so I added him as well!  Again, I used the ornament to display my number.
SOURCES  Cardstock:  The Paper Studio.  Patterned Paper, Alpha, and Stickers: Echo Park.  Ribbon:  Jillibean Soup.    Pen: Zig.  Other: gems.
