The other Design Team Girls, and I, hope to inspire you with fabulous creations using A2Z Scraplets. We all have a few projects to share each, one of them being an example of this month’s sketch challenge which is amazing and was picked by the fabulous Irit Shalom and is a Sketch Designed by Amarilys Doria…

How fabulous is this sketch? Thanks so much Irit for choosing this for us to play along with this month. Checkout my example….

This layout was created using the gorgeous Pink Paislee Indigo Bleu Collection.

Checkout the upclose shot of that fabulous POP A2Z Scraplets title

And another closeup of a gorgeous A2Z Scraplets heart from the Shapes - Hearts 03 Set.

I love the colour combo of this collection especially because they are not colours I would usually use. 

I ripped and curled my paper inspired by the sketch. Love the curled paper look.

Next up I have a couple of my all time favourite layouts to share that have A2Z Scraplets Chipboard used. These actually aren't my Top faves but my Top faves are currently out for publication...

First up is this Layout titled "Feeding the Ducks". I created this layout using the gorgeous Scrap Cake My Private Happiness Collection and a tonne of embellies from Handmade Halo

In this first closeup pic you can see the top of a gorgeous A2Z Scraplets Floralette - 05

And another closeup of another fabulous A2Z Scraplets Chippie from the Shapes - Street Signs - Pack of 2. I think these street signs are one of my all time fave A2Z Scraplets products. They are so fab and here I have used it to title my page.

Just a couple more closeups. I don't think the photos do it any justice but there is just sooo much to look at on this gorgeous bright layout.

 This next layout is going to be mounted on my wall in a frame because I just love it so much. 

The layout was created on a 12x12 piece of Burlap fabric. I used lots of Gesso and other mediums and sprays for this layout. There is lots of flowers and vines that "hug" my family because they are my everything.

Hidden amongst the beautiful cluster of flowers and vines, there are beautiful A2Z Scraplets Love Hearts from the Shapes - Hearts - Set of 6 Pack

I wanted the hearts to have lots of dimension so I added lots of Gesso roughly to the hearts before painting and adding Liquid Pearls with a Paint Brush.

 Well I hope you have enjoyed checking out a couple of my favourite layouts using some amazing A2Z Scraplets goodies.
