Focus On Sketches - Cherish

I hope you've been following along and enjoying my new series Focus On Sketches - 3 Ways or More. I'm up with the 3rd and final layout for June's sketch from Creative Scrappers Sketch #295. Don't forget you can play along with the sketch and win a fabulous Jillibean Soup prize.

This week we're looking at changing up the foundational pieces of the layout. If you look at the background you'll see multiple layers of paper cut into squares. I'm sharing how to do a watercolor background and layered digital die cut to take up the same amount of space but give a whole other look to your layout.

I'm also stretching out the tags to take in the space of the journalling. Still two tags but pulled apart to take up more space on the layout. The title remains in the same place.

Here's a look at more of an explanation of how to expand your sketches for more looks.

You Are My (Scrap-Room June Kit)

I've had a blast this month guest designing for the Scrap-Room and hope you've enjoyed seeing what I've created. This is my final layout using the kit but I still have some scraps and you know I'll be using them up! Today I'm working with the Echo Park Pinstripe collection.

I love the challenges over at the Scrap-Room and this layout is done with the formula from the Freaky Fast Friday challenge. It really stretches me and is so fun to see all the different designs that can come out of the same starting place.
You can join in with the Freaky Fast Friday challenge for prize over at the Scrap-Room.
Along the top I used one of the long stickers as well as the throw away pieces between two of the. You know me I'm always on the look out how to use every last bit up!

To ground my photos I added a strip from the washi tape and another long sticker. I thought the ruler was perfect since the fish stories always grow and my hubby is in construction so they go hand in hand.

I used a die cut from the ephemera and word stickers from the sticker sheet to create my long title.

The bingo card was cut from one of the patterned papers and then I added some twine through a tag to document my journalling. A few more stickers and it was done. Such a fun fast layout.

Be sure to visit the Scrap-Room and check out their Flavors of the Month kits and the other designers layouts. Lots of fun challenges there and on their Facebook group.

A BIG thank you to the Scrap-Room for having me!

Focus On Sketches - 3 ways or more

I've started a new series on my Youtube channel and if you're not already following me there I'd love to have you subscribe and create along with me. I love sketches! they're a great starting point if you need a little nudge and sometimes they're great to just follow exactly when you want to create quickly or lost your mojo. I'm going to be sharing how I change this sketch up to create two more examples. I've already shared my layout following the sketch almost exactly so back up and check it out if you haven't already seen it.

Here's the first sketch I'm working with from Kristine Davidson and Creative Scrappers.

I started by one of the easiest ways to change a sketch and that is starting with the photos. I substituted the two small photos for one 6x4 portrait photo.

I didn't stop there. Instead of two pieces behind the photo I used one sheet of the floral then created the separation shown on the sketch with border strips. Instead of the tags I used my stamps to create a large embellishment to take it's place.

Here's a look at the whole process and more of my thoughts working with this sketch.

We Are Family Process Video

Hop on over and check out the pinterest board I've started to collect the sketches and layouts I'll create. I'd love to have you play along and share with me. So come along on the adventure to have your sketches go even further.

Layout Share

When I finish layouts i have a box that I stack them in until I can get around to putting them into albums. I had a lot piling up so last year  I started once a month to film a little overview of the layouts I created and then promptly put them into their appropriate albums. It's been working fairly well and I can say the only stack of layouts I need to deal with are some that are still waiting for journaling. some day I'll get all caught up. LOL

Here's a little look

Link - Scrapbook Layout Share

In case you don't follow me on youtube here's a little look at the layouts I created in April. I try to share once a month all the layouts I created the month before but I got a little behind going on vacation in May and still catching up.

So Happy with Process Video (Scrap-Room)

I'm so excited to be back with my second layout for the ScrapRoom using their Flavors of the Month kit. This time I'm working with Shimelle's star shine collection. I'm a huge Shimelle fan so I decided to try and channel my inner Shimelle and do a layout using things I've learned from her.

Here's a  look at the process

If you're reading in email click the link below to watch
So Happy Process Video

And some close ups
I stapled some twine from the EP Pinstripe kit over my large scalloped border.
Added some chipboard embellishments and the flair from my kit to finish it off.

Shimelle gets more from her patterned paper than any other designer I know. One way is to fussy cut images from the patterned paper. I cut the globe from patterned paper and pop dotted it up over some people I wanted to block out of the photo. I added a chipboard arrow over it to point to the focus of what my story is about.

I like to include a hidden Mickey on my Disney layouts and I moved this one around a lot trying to find the perfect spot when I happened to tuck it up under the clip. Perfect!!

Be sure to check out the Scrap-Room and all their kits! as well as what the other designers have created.

Dress Up with Process Video (Creative Scrappers)

I'm so excited to be joining the Creative Scrappers Design Team and today we're teaming up with Jillibean Soup. You can play along for a prize too!! Just create a layout with the sketch and post on your social media with the tag #CreatingWithSketches for your chance to win!

I pulled out the ends of one of my favorite Jillibean Soups collection and some embellishments to create this fabulous layout!
