Sunday Sketch with Marsha


Hey friends!  It's Marsha here today with this week's Sunday Sketch challenge!  I used the October Scrapbooking Add-on kit, the Life Crafted "Flourish" kit, and the This Is Life "Ready for This" stamp.

Here's a look at the sketch:

Here's my layout based on the sketch:

I loved the design of the sketch and followed it pretty closely, with only a few minor changes.  I chose to convert the sketch from a 12x12 layout to a Life Crafted album layout.  Instead of two smaller photos, I chose to use one larger portrait photo.  I followed the sketch and added some layers behind the photo using several ephemera pieces from the Add-on kit.  I also added a fussy cut floral, a few ephemera die-cuts, and some gold puffy leaf stickers around the photo.  The vintage lace trim from the Add-on kit was perfect to add to the ephemera tag.

I typed my journaling and added it in strips below the photo.  I also added some pink tiny word stickers to the edge of the photo, following the placement of the labels from the sketch.

On the right side of the layout, I trimmed a ledger patterned paper to fit as a full page in the album.  I created the title using a gold puffy word sticker and the Soft Mint Alphabet stickers, both from the Add-on kit.  I also used some pale pink alpha stickers from a previous Life Crafted kit.  I added some stamping to both pages of the spread using the "Ready for This" stamp and the LC kit stamp.  A trimmed ephemera tag was the perfect touch below the title. To finish off the layout, I added a bit of machine stitching using black thread to several areas around the spread.

I love how this Life Crafted layout turned out using this month's gorgeous kits!  I hope you will join in on this sketch challenge and share your layouts with us on the CTK Fan Facebook page or on Instagram using the hashtag #citrustwistkits.  I will see you again soon!
