Sunday Sketch with Marsha

Hey friends!  It's Marsha here today with this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge.  This is such a fun challenge and a really great way to jump-start your creativity.

Here's a look at the sketch:

Here's the layout I created using the Life Crafted "Hustle and Heart" Kit and the December Scrapbooking Add-on Kit:

For this project, I chose to add a layout to my 2019 December Daily album-  I am using the Life Crafted Album.  I LOVE the size of this perfect for this project!

To begin the spread, I rotated the sketch so that the photo and number would be on the right side of the page.  I trimmed two pieces of white cardstock to use as the base for my pages.  Next, I enlarged one of the journaling cards from the December Days digital collection, and I used it along with a couple of the patterned papers from the LC kit to layer behind my photo and day number.   Using the This Is Life "Born For This" Stamp, I stamped a frame for my number.  I added another stamp from the Traveler's Notebook Stamp to a label and added it to the side of the number.  I  used ephemera, chipboard pieces, and stickers from the kits to embellish the page, also adding some machine stitching.


For the other side of the spread, I layered a few strips of patterned paper along the edge of the page.  I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Stories Stamp onto a label and used some of the puffy alpha stickers from the Add-on kit for the title.

I stamped some stars, using a CTK TN Stamp from a previous month, around the page and used ephemera and enamel dots to embellish.  I also added some Crate Paper Snowflake Stickers (that can be found in the CTK shop).  To finish off the page, I added a bit more machine stitching to the edge of the page.

Here's a final look at the layout:

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will join in on the challenge and share your creations with us on the Facebook Fan Page or on Instagram using #citrustwistkits.
