Sketchy Scrappers: Best Laid Plans

This months sketch over on Sketchy Scrappers was set by Fiona who as a recent Instagram convert set this sketch which allowed us to use two Instagram photos
For my layout I revisited my Best Laid Plans blog post & chose two Instagram pics from back in the summer. 
I decided to try and pick up on the grunge type look of the sketch by using two Glitz papers from the Finley collection with a running paint effect on them as well as spraying some pink Miser Huey onto a background paper from Heidi Swapp. I wasn't sure how to create the tab tops to the papers until I found some Fancy Pants stickers. If anyone knows of any tab punches please let me know. 
I had to add some Washi to the top of the photos as I originally placed one photo in the wrong place, tried to pull it up and ripped the paper slightly...oops! The bottom cluster is made up of an Elle's Studio banner, a Lillybee Design sticker and a resin star from my scrappy friend Julia. 
In other news, I have set myself a crafty challenge. I recently received my latest Quirky Kit and canceled my subscription as I need to catch up and use my stash up. So I have been inspired by Kitty Nancy on Instagram to not buy any more stash until I have completed 20 projects (layouts or cards), Nancy did 30 but I'm starting small lol! I'll be starting this when I go to Meadow Barn and collected stash Gemma has brought for me from TK Maxx in a couple of weeks so keep checking back on my progress! 


  1. Love that layout, you're doing way better than me with the misting!

  2. I've not got into Instagram, but I just love that page. Thanks so much for sharing

  3. Great use of mists on this page Jess x
    I love Instagram as you know!

  4. I used the WRMK envelope maker to make my tabs on my layout (not quite finished it yet but will blog as soon as I finish).

    Really lovely layout xx
