Sketch challenge reveal-SOUS

Welcome to our last sketch reveal for 2013 over at SOUS..
This weeks sketch is by me :) and I had a blast with it..  I dont' have a photo for my layout since the holidays kill me.. Between juggling work, Xmas shopping, crafting, cooking and cleaning, I've just run out of time to search my box of photos for a photo for this layout.. But, after the holidays I will be back to normal :)

So, here is my take on this weeks sketch:

I used my Silhouette software to design this layout and it was so much fun to see it come to life..
Here is what it looked like on my monitor:
It's a bit darker on the computer than how it ended up printing..LOL

and how about some close ups:

cute wittle birdys

Snow flakes and liquid pearls..

love this cute little girl.. I actually found her at the Kaboodle cutting files store when they had their Black Friday sale.. You can check their files by clicking HERE..

For the snowman: The little girl above holds a pumpkin, but I made that pumpkin into this snowman head and have her holding a bird instead..

my hanging hearts..  Added some faux stitching..

and finally the cute little bird and buttons that are on the bottom.. the little snowflakes are the cut outs from the border and didn't want to throw them away, so added them to the layout :)

and now for the supplies used:

Silhouette Cameo
Silhouette designer edition software (to cut svg's)
Canon printer
White cardstock

digital paper kit: Christmas Joy
Sweet Shoppe Designs

Girl sitting, snowman hat and scarf, birds and hearts.

SIL store:
title phrase, Buttons, snowflakes and border

distress inks: Brushed corduroy, Tumbled glass and Fired brick
White liquid pearls
foam tape

and there ya have it... 
Do stop by SOUS and check out what fun layouts our design team has created with this weeks sketch..
Till next time, hope you have a scrap-tastic week

  4. Loving the colours and the hanging hearts are too cute. Merry Christmas to you and the family Nanne... Hugs xx

  5. Beautiful layout. Love the hangin hearts and the little girl & snowman are adorable. TFS

  6. Beautiful layout. Just starting to learn print and cut method. How do you add the digital paper to the patterns ? I don't have a silhoutte I have MTC.Thanks so much for your help.

    1. I use the Silhouette software which has a fill pattern option.. Where you can flood your die cuts with either a color or pattern.. I buy/download digital papers and am able to drag and drop them onto the die cuts.. I'm not familiar with MTC, so not sure if that option is available for that software.. The silhouette software is a FREE download from the Silhouette America website if you have either a Cameo or Portrait.. Hope that was helpful..
