more patterny goodness

we are still celebrating the delights of holiday pattern-combining at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥; specifically, we'd like to see cards that have at least three different patterned papers... but there is no limit on how many prints you may amass if you're feeling quite maximalist, as i was this week!*

patterned paper: october afternoon, echo park, k and co; patterned tags and alphabet stickers: (seriously old school) basic grey (that i still really love!); poinsettia: prima; other florals and leaves plus white bobbly trimming: making memories; brad: my mind's eye; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, scotch double stick tape, sewing machine

i was again drawn to the current sketch at stuck on u sketches; technically, i think their sketches are intended mostly for layouts-- of which their team's examples are particularly inspiring; but they say they do get the occasional card, and i'm pretty sure they'll be getting additional ones from me since they seem to include just enough artfully arranged layers to make their strong shapes especially interesting,! (i'm not just saying that because they chose my sadly-not-a-chicken card to win their absolutely awesome august blog candy, though they did, and i thank them very much indeed!)

after you check out the fabulous fare at stuck on u sketches, be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see stephanie's awesome card and maybe... link up one of your own?

*ok, yeah, i am MOST weeks, actually; what can i say, i like pattern-on-pattern, and i always have;  and quite a few layers, too, for that matter! :)


  1. Your eye for mixing patterns is INCREDIBLE! This is breathtakingly stunning.

  2. How DO you do this so consistently? It boggles ...

  3. HI this is a brilliant idea for the sketch, absolutely fabulous. Caroleanne from SOUS. x

  4. Beautiful! I like how you adapted the sketch to do a card.
