Sketchy Saturday no 31 prompt entry three for week of 22 dec 2018

Entry three for Document December mixed format scrapbook pocket page

For this sketch layout interpretation the design has been rotated 90 degrees to the right (tipped over) in order to fit the dimensions of the top left corner pocket of this scrapbook page.

Liberties have been taken with one of the sketch's snowflakes to be substituted by a row of stick-on gems. Another change is a journaling strip instead of a sentiment message. More stick-on gems and small stickers (junk mail freebies) have been used instead of snowflakes. The base paper (which the design reminds me of poinsettias) was part of my November 2018 kit that I made for CKC blog but didn't use until now. I'm glad I got this done! 

Snapshots for this entry #3 feature our living room piano's keyboard covered with received Christmas cards and photo cards and a recent pic taken at our church with my hubby and I standing next to the beautiful cradle to the cross display. 

The 3rd entry oriented like the sketch design =

As I did for the two previous entries for the same challenge, I've given credit in this blog series of posts to 2 groups/blog that have been motivating me to get busy using old crafting inventory in new ways. Those groups are Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog/Facebook group and 100 Pattern Papers Challenge which is solely a FB group. Thanks also to LSD for being an inspiring crafting mentor!

2018 is almost over! This year's highlights have been crafting and blog related since personal life has been full of stresses due to many traumas and dramas. I spent the first 8 months of year on 2 blogs' design teams and reluctantly stepped down for 2 reasons (hubby had 3 ER visits in July and I wanted more crafting flexibility in time and commitments). By late August I got excited in crafting again especially for scrapping with CKC blog's challenges. They selected me as an August follower showcase and guest designer for October!!! At about the same time, I discovered a Christian women's card making group through Facebook and have been recognized 2 times already!! (Christian Card-Making ~ Women's Fellowship) Then about 6 weeks ago, I've started renewing my interest in art journaling in my Bible and am getting ideas and inspiration to do more study of God's Word through this creative option.

Thanks for reading my blog. If you are one of my blog followers, thank you for your support and encouragement!!!

From the USA heartland, Becca S


  1. I love that you used the sketch to create a page! Thanks for playing!

    1. Thanks so much, Laurel! I've made mini sketches for 6 recent layouts because I like how similar they are with just little tweaks to differentiate from week to week (or layout to layout). I want to use them for upcoming birthday cards that need to be made.

  2. What a fabulous overall result Becca, and I can see the rotated sketch very well

    1. Appreciate your time and encouragement, Maxine!!!
