And this month is my turn to provide the sketch. I hope you’ll come and play along with us! Here is the sketch.
And here is my resulting page using the June 2013 Scraptastic Club Carry On Kit and Add-On.
The chevrons totally remind me of the tread on a bike tire … perfect for this page of my son and his bike.
I embossed the red cardstock piece using my Cuttlebug machine and a Cuttlebug folder called Relly Rave (sorry, I was unable to find a link on the Cricut.com site).
Stop on by the Scraptastic Club Blog to see what the other designers did with the sketch!
See you soon!
This month it was my turn to create the sketch for Scraptastic Club’s Sketchy Thursday Challenge. I thought I would also share it here on my blog along with my page, and if you’d like to play along for a chance at winning the prize, be sure to link up your photos on the appropriate post on the Scraptastic Blog HERE.
Here is the sketch I made.
And here is the coordinating page I created using elements mostly from the April 2013 Awake My Soul Add-On Kit. I hand cut the doilies and ticket-shaped blocks from the Teresa Collins papers included in the kit and clustered them around my column of photos. I love the way it came together.
I hope you’ll come play along with us! Have a great weekend!
Yesterday on the BasicGrey Blog my assignment was to use an awesome card sketch by Susan Stringfellow to inspire a layout design. I hadn’t done this in awhile and had so much fun with it! Here is Susan’s sketch I worked from.
And here is the resulting page using the BasicGrey True Love collection. You can see that I followed the sketch pretty closely, but expanded it a bit to fit a 12 x 12 format.
I grouped my photos together in one large rectangle, just like the large rectangle in the center of the sketch. For my background I replaced the strip on the right hand side with a series of patterned paper strips stacked on top of each other. This is a great way to use up paper scraps!
The heart in the sketch really caught my attention and I decided to replicate it on my layout as a page accent. I stacked two chipboard hearts together and then used a chipboard tag, a bottlecap sticker, and a design trimmed from the Snippets to recreate the row of notched paper strips.
BasicGrey design team member, Waleska Neris, also created a layout from Susan’s sketch. Come see her take on it! I love what she made. 🙂
Have a great day!
