Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #168

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hello, 2019 and hello to all of you creative crafters out there!

It's the first day of 2019, and the first day of the month always means there's a new sketch up on the Sketch N Scrap blog!

Here's sketch #168, designed by Lisa Hidy:
And here's my take on it:
I used a couple of pictures taken at the Apple Barn in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.  This is a sprawling property with restaurants, shops, a cider mill, a winery....I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting!  We enjoyed a beautiful day there with friends of my husband's who recently moved nearby.  As usual, I used a mixture of different products on this page.  Part of it is Echo Park's Celebrate Autumn from my November kit from The Scraproom.  One thing I love about Echo Park is that many of their lines are interchangeable in color and style, I mix & match Echo Park lines a lot!  The deep red and the bits of yellow are from last year's Fall Is in the Air.

I decided to use some distressing techniques on this page, for a rustic, country feel:
On the edge of the red paper I used my CTMH edge distresser.  On the edge of the woodgrain I lightly sanded with a fine grit sandpaper, just enough to give it a distressed edge.  The leaves were cut using my Cricut and a free cut file from Paper Issues.

Come play along with us this month at Sketch N Scrap with this sketch and the others that will be posted throughout the month, hope to see you there!

  1. Happy New Year Stacy!! LOVE this layout! I agree, EP lines are super easy to interchange! Love that you can use up every last scrap from your older lines by adding it to the newer lines!
