Hello everyone and welcome to another sketch release here at Inspired Blueprints. We are THRILLED by the number of amazing layouts uploaded in the past month and we will be announcing our winner for a prize pack from Kraft Girl Kits within the next week. Thank you sooo much to everyone who submitted their layout(s).
So without further delay, here is our new sketch by our very own designer, Kim Arnold ...

We wanted to do a sketch for all those 4x6 photos you may have to scrap. :) Our guest designer for this sketch is the talented Cookie Aguilar.

Sketch #9 - CookieAguilar


Hi! I'm Cookie Aguilar from the Philippines!!!  I'm so excited to be guest designing for Inspired Blueprints - thanks so much for having me.
I am a mom to a 3-year old boy named Harvey, who is mostly the subject of my pages, and I'm happily married for 4 years now to a very supportive husband- Henry.  I have been scrapping since May of 2007. Scrapbooking has been my creative outlet after a day's work of performing mommy duties.  Currently, I'm designing for 2 of my favorite scrapbooking manufacturers- Chatterbox and Buzz and Bloom.  I'm also designing for Mystical Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Heaven, Scrappinkids and Rekindled Moments.
Scrapping style? I really don't know how to call it, but I've just noticed I love layering patternpapers on my pages and oftentimes giving them a distressed look. I also love to try new stuff and learn more techniques in scrapping.
I'm inviting you over at my blog (would really love to see you all there!!!

Thank you Cookie for your wonderful layout. :)

We also have some inspiring layouts for you to feast your eyes on by our very own designers.






And here is Lisa's 8.5x11 layout and card inspirations for this sketch...

Lisa did this wonderful layout without any photos!


We totally LOVE all that our designers have come up with and we can't WAIT to see what YOU will do with this sketch. And because this is February, we have a new sponsor. YAY! If you haven't already noticed, all our designers' layouts have one thing in common on them? Can you guess what it is???  Yep, it's chipboard... and all that wonderful chipboard comes from our sponsor for this month - SCRAPWARE.
