Sketchy Saturday

Well hey there and welcome to the May Edition of Sketchy Saturday! We made a few changes this month and we think you're going to like them. 

We found an incredible layout created by Nicole Nowosad on the Fancy Pants blog. What a fabulous use of paper and colors. There is so much inspiration on one page! Yes, it screams Happy! 

 This layout also made us scream SKETCH please! So here you go! 

The Paper Issues team really went to town with this sketch.

Kelly used the Fancy Pants True Friends collection for this adorable page about her dog.

Tarrah Created this cheerful page about her son. She tweaked the sketch to use fewer, but larger circles.

Michelle used the circles in the sketch as a background for this beautiful photo of her children using some Webster's Pages goodies.

Meaghen is shareing her lovely layout using some added shapes at the top of the page. She makes Maggie Holmes Confetti shine; and that photo is to die for!

Jana's stunning page also uses the circles as the base for her photo, but still made the sketch her own. The use of black, white and turquoise is stunning!

Becky used some new Fancy Pants Office Suite for this humorous page. Do I detect a pun between product and title?

Here's mine, Devra. I had thought bubbles on my mind and filled them with lots of little bits, including Snarky Stamps , Crate Paper and Bella Blvd 

Orange Gearle's use of new Webster's Pages Dream in Color Collection is fantastic for this sweet sibling photo

We also have a bonus card sketch for you this month as well. The sketch is based off this beautiful card by the amazing Corri using new Bella Blvd 

Jennifer made this happy card by flipping the sketch horizontally.

Lisa, another master card crafter, used some Simple Stories on this lovely layered gem!

Last but never least, Leah's use of PinkFresh Studio supplies on this, "get well soon." card will definitely cheer someone up. I spy some Snarky Stamps too!

We thank Nicole Nowosad for the use of her layout. You can find more of her work on her blog and on her Instagram account.

Be sure to link up your projects using the card or layout sketch for a chance to win a $10 Gift card to the Paper Issues store! You have until June 5th to play along, and I hope you will!
