Happy Sunday to everyone! It is Marci with you today. We have another amazing sketch for you this week.

I loved that this sketch has a place for multiple pictures. I did end up replacing one of the journaling spots for even another picture. When I first looked at this sketch I saw an 8.5in x 11in layout. I choose to resize it to 7in x8.25in which will fit into one of the 6x8 life crafted albums. I also knew that I wanted this on the right side of my album based on where I had space for a one page layout. Although, I could have left the sketch as is, knowing that it would be on the right side, I decided to rotate the sketch 180 degrees. This puts the large paper stripe on the right side of the layout. 

I used three of the digital papers from the GOING PLACES digital collection. I loved the bright and cheery orange and yellow paper. I also used a green and blue paper to tie in with the colors of my photos. With the smaller layout size and keeping my photos larger, I choose to move the title vertically and onto the stripe of paper. 

I used three of this month's cut files on this layout. First, was the title HAPPY CAMPER. Next, I resized two of the other cut files, the LOVE arrow and the LET'S Go arrow, to make two smaller embellishments. I wanted some dimension to these cut files so I cut each one three times and layered them together. Now each one has the thickness of chipboard and is elevated a little off the page. I love the esthetic. 

Similar to the sketch, I wanted to add my journaling onto a tag behind the lower picture. I used double sided tape along three sides to make a pocket behind the picture. My pictures are about 3.25in wide and 2.5in tall. I made my tag 4in x 2in so it would fit inside the pocket I created. 

To finish off the spread I pulled some items from my Citrus Twist stash. These Puffy Word Phrase Stickers matched the colors in the GOING PLACES collection perfectly, so did these Cardstock stickers. Lastly, I added a heart and arrow from this Chipboard Arrow Sticker Set. They round out my third cluster of embellishments and match the denim and wood colors in my photos. 

Thank you for visiting the blog today. I would love to see how you use this sketch in your crafting!
