"Garden Beauty" by Michele Edwards
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts, Bazzill; Patterned paper: Jillibean, ProvoCraft; Embellishments: Recollections (small sunflowers), Jolees (ladybug and ant stickers); Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook and Calligraphy Collection); Ink: Tim Holz; Floss: DMC; Sketch: Scrapbook Generation

Every year it happens, the winter blues. I long for the bright sunny days, and for my garden. I confess that I've spend hours looking at the online seed catalogues, planning my next garden!


1. I used the add-on to embellish a two-page layout.

2. Instead of hearts, I created stems with leaves and flowers. I made an accordian sun-flower, and re-created the swirl in the seeds using string.

"Art" by Janette Kincaid

Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Scenic Route; Accessory Sheet: My Mind’s Eye (Ooh La La-For Him); Corrugated alphabet: Jillibean Soup; Memo Pin: Tim Holtz; Distress Ink: Ranger (Pine Needles); Adhesive: Helmar Scrapdots, 450 Quick Dry; Journal Pen/Marker: Zig (Black); Floss: DMC; Misc: ribbon, dictionary paper, canvas, paint, brads

Variation #1 – Rather than repeating the rows of hearts and the straight lines of stitching I took inspiration from the one large heart in the sketch and put it front and center on my layout.

Variation #2 – I added stitching around the outside of the painted canvas heart. It’s really a little pillow made with two pieces of canvas stitched together to hold the cotton ball stuffing inside.

Love how both of you took the sketch "out of the box"! Miohele, those sunflowers are gorgeous (my favorite flower) and I love the pattern you created in the center with the string. Janette, I love the fun design and colors on your page. The canvas heart is really, really fabulous!

Sandy, sometimes the site we use to host the pdfs of the sketches is slow. It will be posted as soon as the sketch has uploaded with that site.
