Digital Printable Elements:
For this page in my 6x8 album I used the February collection and here are the 3 prompts:
1. Use 2 design papers
2. Use a cutfile
3. Use your ephemera
For the first prompt, I choose 2 different design papers from the digital cherish collection. I love the font on this paper so I printed it out a little bigger so it would make a big colorful page to add my photo.
I just loved the vintage ephemera in the kit so I used that a the base for my cluster, then I combined my cluster with one of the cutfiles from the February release. I made a background so it would "pop” more on my spread and love how the cutfile became a center point.
As a final touch I made a small black line around all the edges so the phot’s would stand out even more.
I hope you like this challenge and I can’t wait to see what you create!
Lots of love Suzanne
Hi friends, Jasmin here with a 6*8 Layout using the Sunday Sketch.
Hi Everyone! This is Jennie with your 3 To Inspire Challenge.
These are your three prompts for this week:
1. Play with the sizes of the digital journaling cards and travelers notebook papers.
2. Layered stamping with different shades or colors.
3. Create interactive elements.
I mixed elements from Cherish and Slow Down. I was working on my book journal which is 4x6 so I changed the sizes from one journaling card and one travelers notebook page to fit the book. Changing sizes and even colors is one of my favorite things to do with digital elements. You don't have to be tech savvy. You can even do it with Microsoft Word.
Sketches can be followed exactly as they are drawn or they can be used just as motivation to get you started. One great thing about sketches is that they can be turned in any direction which can give the viewer a completely different design. That is what I did today with this sketch. I turned it 90 degrees. By making the sketch horizontal rather then vertical, I now have a sketch with the same proportions as a life crafted, out of the page protector layout.
I started with two pieces of textured, white card stock, cut to 5in wide by 8.25in tall. I knew I wanted to document a recent walk on the beach I took with my dog. It was a gorgeous day and the pictures came out with beautiful blue colors. The peach card stock dollie in the cherish ephemera pack paired beautifully with the blues in my photos. I started with this element first by placing it at the top of the left page, similar to the circle element in the sketch. Next, I wanted my largest photo to take center stage so I placed it also on the left side under the the area that would house the title.
That left my three smaller photos. I placed them on the right side is a zig-zag pattern similar to the sketch’s placement.
Another key element in the sketch is a wide piece of pattern paper that goes top to bottom in the original image or side to side in the rotated sketch. I started off using the dark blue cherish digital journal card and printing it as a long strip of paper. I like the dark blue paper with my water photos. I needed another paper to add interest to my page but not distract from the photos. I decided to use a light grey ink and stamp my own patterned paper. There is an elongated hexagon on the Cherish Stamp Set that reminded me of cobblestones. I thought that would work perfect.
After placing all the large elements on my page I filled in some of the blank spaces with the blue and peach flowers from the ephemera pack as well as some hearts and dots from the Cherish puffy word, phrase and numbers snippet sheet.. Lastly, the sketch had dotted lines drawn at the top and bottom of the sketch. They made me think of stitch lines so I added some white stitching to some embellishments on each page. I think it give the layout some added interest and texture.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you find this sketch as fun as I did. Have a great Sunday being creative!
Let's take a look at the lovely sketch.
Nathalie with you today bringing you this week's 3-to-Inspire challenge featuring the new Cherish release. Here are this week's 3 prompts:
I love how the three prompts actually helped to pull this together in a short amount of time. Let's take a closer look:
To bring some of the journaling patterned paper to the photo side of the picture, I chose to line the top of the paper (both digital papers) with it, then folded to reveal the design. The angle the fold creates was the perfect spot for my title (Sadie Teal Green Puffy Alpha stickers). The large ephemera flower just helps to emphasize the angle of the fold, and title placement.
