Helen Keller Quote

     Whenever I make a sympathy card, I usually include this quote from Helen Keller. "What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." 

The small card to the right shows the back of the inserted card.
     For this card I constructed a pocket using Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Hillside Borders". Using gold embossing powder, I heat embossed one large and two small butterflies. The two small butterflies act as a tab for the card that is inserted into the pocket. The large butterfly is pop dotted to the pocket.
     The background of the inserted card is stamped with a small flourish using Lovely Lavender ink.

  3. Hi Sharon! I am sorry I didn't get a notification for your comment on the Sketch N Scrap blog so just now seeing it!! We really prefer you to have pictures on your layouts BUT if there is some reason you can't i.e. you are making a page or album for a gift as a premade thing that is a special situation so just mention in it in your blog. However, we don't wish to make a habit of it for those just doing layout for their own albums. Our sketches are to only be used for personal use not for DT work as well. I hope that answers your question! If you have further questions email me at
