Hey friends! It's Marsha here with you today sharing this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge. My project came together so quickly using the sketch and the gorgeous Scrapbooking Add-on Kit and This Is Life "Weekend Life" Stamp!
Here's a look at the sketch:
Here's the layout I created:
For my project today, I chose to create a spread in my Life Crafted Album, instead of doing a traditional 12x12 or 8.5x11 page. To begin, I trimmed some white cardstock to 5x8.25 inches to serve as base pages for my project. Following the sketch, I trimmed two patterned papers to span across both sides of the album. I typed my journaling on a piece of white cardstock and used the This Is Life "Weekend Life" Stamp to add a bit of stamping above and below the journaling. Next, I used the Magical Forest Copper Alphabet Stickers to add the word "good." I used a black and white striped paper from this month's Life Crafted kit to add a hand-cut pennant banner above the journaling block. This little detail was found in the sketch and I love the extra interest and texture it adds to the page!
For the other side of the layout, I fussy cut a large floral piece from a patterned paper in the Add-on kit. Then, I layered my photo over a "remember" card I trimmed from a cut apart sheet in the kit. To embellish, I added some gold polka dot washi tape, a puffy butterfly sticker, and an ephemera tab and label.
For the top portion of the spread, I followed the sketch and added a strip of patterned paper across the top of the layout. I tucked another fussy cut floral behind the strip.
For the title, I stamped the word "weekend" using the Weekend Life stamp and black ink. I used the copper alpha stickers to complete the title and added an ephemera tab to the edge of the page. As a final finishing touch, I added some machine stitching to several areas of the layout.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you will join in on this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge and share your project with us on the CTK Facebook Fan Page or on Instagram using #citrustwistkits. I will see you again soon!
