Follow by email?

hey guys, I just added a gadget on the side bar of this site------> 
So if you guys want to get a little email when I post a new sketch, you can go add your email there and it will start sending them out to you. I like it when people have those because I rarely take the time to go thru my long lists of fave blogs, but having it come into my email keeps me from missing things. I just wanted to give you a heads up. I also added one to my regular blog CreativelySavvy.

Sketch #67 12x12" with frame cutfile

I have a very fun sketch for you today. It has some cute element ideas and even a couple of cut files for those of you who have Sure Cuts Alot2. If you don't have that program, you can use the .jpg file below as a paper template. I also use the new DCWV "French Country" stack and a bit of brown tweed paper from Michaels' Recollections "Regent Street" stack by DCWV.

Sketch #66 12x12

For my example, I have used Basic Grey's Oxford collection. I know you guys like sketches where we get to use alot of patterned papers and even better when you can use scraps! For close ups and details visit my blog HERE

Sketch #65 12x12

I actually created this layout and then made a sketch based on the page for you guys. I thought you might like to try the long banners. The papers are all from the gorgeous new Tradewinds Stack from DCWV (See it HERE) and I wish I could say that the lovely photo is mine, but it is a borrowed photo.

I just received this fantastic layout from Isay. I just love the papers and embellishments she chose. That checked background really makes it feel like fall. Visit her blog HERE

Sketch #64 12x12

I know you guys always ask for more layouts using landscape oriented photos, so here is another one. And for my friends who are asking for more layouts with one landscape and one portrait (you know who you are :), I am working on it. Those are tricky for me too. LOL! For my example I used the new Basic Grey Out of Print Collection. If you would like to see close ups and details, Visit my Blog HERE.

ok you guys are going to love this! Anita took this sketch and sketch #62 and combined them into one really beautiful 2 page layout! Isn't that a neat idea?! Thanks for sharing your pages, Anita Visit Anita's blog HERE

Jenny just sent me this precious page and I just had to share. I love her papers and use of the banners. Visit Jenny's blog here for more.

here is a page from Shaunery with some cool ribbon edging on the circle. Don't be afraid of texture going under photos, just cut it where it goes under the edge and you don't have to worry about the bump. :) Thanks Shaunery! Visit her blog here.
Joni sent me this totally fun version of the sketch. I think the buttons across the middle are perfect. Visit Joni's Blog HERE

Sketch #63 12x12 and a Cut file!

I know some of you love cut files and probably thought I had given them up but I just haven't felt inspired lately. Well I needed a good border for this page so I made this fleur border. I am giving you a link to the SCUT2 file as well as a .jpg image so you can use it with some of your die cutting machines.

***Here is the link for the Fleur Border SCUT2 file***

***Be sure to mention SketchSavvy with a link when you use this file. As always, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of the sketch and cut file. Have Fun!

And here is the .jpg image - click the image to enlarge before saving.

Oh my goodness, you have to see this adorable layout from Melissa D. She has the sweetest photo but the papers and embellishments are just great fun too. This is a great example of how the same sketch can look completely different. Have you guys ever used one sketch twice? Give it a try. Visit Melissa's blog here for more.
