Hello friends! Marsha here, and I'm excited to be sharing this week's Sunday Sketch. Sketches are so fun to work with, and CTK always has the best ones! I hope you will play along!
Here's the sketch for this week:
I love this design! When I first saw it, I knew it would work perfectly as a layout in my Life Crafted Album. Here's the spread I created:
I loved the sketch so much, I decided to follow it fairly closely. One of the only changes I made was mirroring the sketch.
To begin the layout, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out one of the free subscriber cut files to use as my background. I loved this detail from the sketch and wanted to use it on my spread. I used a patterned graph paper from the kit and then layered it over a striped paper, also from the kit.
Next, I used some of the ephemera, word stickers and chipboard pieces to embellish this side of the layout. I also did some stamping using the This is Life "Bookends" Stamp. I love the extra interest stamping adds to a page!
Next, I used a journaling card from the kit, the stamp set, and some of the cut aparts to embellish the pocket, and I trimmed one card into a tag shape for my journaling. The scalloped pocket from this month's kit was perfect for holding the tag with my journaling.
For the right side of the spread, I trimmed a couple of the kit papers into narrow strips and adhered them to the edge of the page. I used more ephemera, cut aparts, chipboard pieces, and stamps to embellish this area.
To finish off the layout, I added some machine stitching. I love the texture and interest this adds to a project.
Here's one final look at my layout using this week's sketch:
I can't wait to see your take on the Sunday Sketch! I hope you will play along!
