Using PageMaps...

Sandee is over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog today with another Scrappin' Saturday! Today she is featuring the super awesome website called PageMaps. PageMaps is a site to find sketches for layouts of all sizes, cards, half pages, tags, etc! This place is amazing!! You will have to check it out when you are looking for inspiration! Anyway, Sandee asked some of the DT members to help her out by showcasing a sketch from over at PageMaps. I chose this sketch:



This is an 8x8 layout sketch that I rotated and added my own twists to come up with the following LO.



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: Storybook, Nursery Rhymes, Cindy Loo, GBS
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! and Bliss stack from Me & My BIG ideas
White Sakura Gelly Roll Pen
Queen & Co. Rhinestones

I used my Gypsy to weld border cuts from Cindy Loo, along with circles from George and Basic Shapes to create the edging along the bottom. I only have one border punch, so I have to be creative!! Gotta love my Gypsy!!!

I am also entering this LO into the Getting Scrappy Challenge over at Amanda's Crafts and More. The theme was to "Get Sketchy" and create a LO from any sketch!

Thanks for looking! Head on over to FCCB to see what Sandee and some of the other DT members have done with PageMaps!

What a great layout. The colors and flourishes are awesome. Super take on the sketch. For some reason I find sketches to hard to copy, lol. I love what you did with it. Thank you for the link. I will have to try it for scrap booking. I have not tried sketches for that yet. Mybe they are easier than card ones.
