This weeks sketch @ Let's Scrap

Good morning all! I hope everyone is recovering from the holidays!
Well, it's Wednesday, so that means a new sketch at Let's Scrap. Here is the sketch for this week

This sketch is great for a Christmas page or any page that you have a lot of pictures for, but only want to do one layout for it. If you tape or tie or whatever you would like on the right side, you can "hide" 6 more photo's on to one layout! So here is my take on the sketch
and here it is with the right side open (sorry for the camera glare, it is very overcast here, so I had to use the living room lights!)
Isn't that an awesome way to add extra photos!!

I used DCWV Harvest Gathering stack for all my pp's. I sanded the tan cardstock background. I used a banner stamp that I got from a yard sale for 25cents that I have had for months and never touched! Instead of using regular ink, I used VersaMark and embossed the banner gold. I really like the way it turned out!
Here is a close up of it and you can see the polka dots shimmering from the pp.
So, I hope this sketch inspires you to grab a stack of photos and get scrappin!


  1. Fantastic layout Mindi, I love how you did the banner with the embossing and sanding the cardstock gives a cool look to it. It looks like you all had a great time at the birthday celebration.

  2. Outstanding job with this flip-out layout, Mindi! I absolutely L-O-V-E your gold banner. Super creative use of 25 cents, I would say!! You "fancied up" this layout, just as you and Susie "fancied up" for this festive occasion. Awesome!
