I’m so happy to be back on the blog with you today with one of my favourite posts…the Sunday Sketch! This one was so fun to work with so let’s take a look…
Here’s the layout I came up with…
I decided to stay with the 8.5 x 11 inch size for this page as it’s a size I love to create with but this sketch could so easily be adapted to suit the 12 x 12 inch format!
I printed out my photos to roughly 3 x 2.5 inches and positioned them at the bottom of the page layered on top of the yellow paper and a strip of the rainbow paper from the Crate Paper SWEET STORY 6 x 8 Paper Pad plus a piece of vellum from my stash and added machine stitching.
I grabbed a couple of the fun tickets from the Life Crafted TICKETS & TAGS Die-Cut Cardstock Ephemera pack to tuck under the side of the second photo just like the sketch and adhered a heart die cut from the pretty Life Crafted FLORALS Die-Cut Cardstock Ephemera pack. I printed out the date and made it into a little tag to finish off this cluster.
To the left of the first photo I added the fun XOXO piece from the Tickets & Tags ephemera pack and another little heart from the Florals pack.
At the top of the page I used a strip of the scalloped paper from the Sweet Story paper pad, added stitching then tucked in a yellow ticket ephemera at the right side in the same spot as the little cluster in the sketch. I also added a phrase and heart die cut from the Florals ephemera pack.
My journaling strips were positioned to the left of the page like the sketch and I added stitching to each of the strips. I also used stamps from the Citrus Twist 6” x 8” GET MESSY Stamp set above and below the journaling. More heart ephemera pieces were added around the journaling and I finished off with a tiny heart stamp from the Get Messy stamp set.
You can see my process in the video below...
The sketch made it so easy to put this layout together! I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a try yourself.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
