Dakota: Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge


I love to work with a sketch! This beauty is from the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog! Can't wait for you to see what I made with it using my Dakota Workshop on the go Kit from Close to my Heart!

What do you think of my take on this sketch?

I rarely create single scrapbook pages, so here is what the total 2 page layout looks like! I used my new "Make if from Your Heart" pattern sketch book (available to you on August 1st.) I love this new pattern how-to book! It is magazine style, which makes it VERY affordable and worth every penny! It is only $7.95! It contains scrapbook AND card sketches with all of the measurements. I used pattern 07 from page 18.

The medallions on one of the Dakota background and texture papers were PERFECT for mimicking the circle pattern on the sketch.

For a fun handmade embellishment I used the black hemp that comes with the kit to create "barbed wire". I will show you how I did it at the Dakota Scrapbook class that Cherish will host on Saturday September 29th. Contact me for more details if you would like to RSVP and reserve your spot or learn more about my classes.


  1. I love what you did with this paper! And the "barbed wire" is very clever. :)

  2. This is so neat! Love how you came up with the "barbed wire". I agree, the Make It From Your Heart Book is a very useful resource.

  3. I love this layout Heather, a great interpretation of the sketch!
