This Month we are all about Sketches!

Sketches are fun, and a great way to kick your mojo up a notch. You can flip them, turn them around or rotate them to suit your photos

Challenge 1

Hi Crafters

How is it the start of the month already?

Louise here.

This month we are focusing on sketches with a side of chipboard.

“Love this Moment”


I’ve designed this layout and then given you this sketch to use as you are inspired.

For this layout I’ve been playing with

Uniquely Creative “Choose your own adventure” collection

I also needed some colour in the background … so I pulled out watercolours

To embellish I’ve used lots of Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Legendary”

and topped it off with some CVS Flair buttons

For the title, I’ve used the Love this Moment chipboard and treated it with acrylic paint and embossing powder.

I’m looking forward to seeing your sketch inspired layouts.

Have fun creating!

Challenge 2

Good morning

Julie here with my sketch for you for this months challenge

Don’t forget there is 20% off all chipboard for this month.

Here is my sketch. I have not added any embellishments or title just the basis for the layout.

I am very interested to see the different ways you come up with to make this sketch your own.

This is how I have used the sketch
You can see I have stuck to the basic layout mostly but added my own touch with embellishments and the title.

I have used Couture Creations Peaceful Peonies Collection Pack , Core dinations Aegean Mixed Dots and plain pink cardstock to create this page.

All of the patterned papers and cardstock have had the edges inked using a black ink cube.

The flowers to embellish the layout were cut from Paper No 6

The photos are 2 @ 3″ x 5″

Starting from the bottom level of the layout (Aegean Mixed dots cardstock) and working my way up to the photos the papers and sizes are:-

Coredinations Aegean Mixed Dots – 12″ x 12″
Pink Cardstock – 11 1/2″ x 11 1/2″
Paper No 02 – 11″ x 11″
Paper No 01 – 5 1/2″ x 10″
Paper No 05 – 3″ x 12″
Coredinations Aegean Mixed Dots – 2 of 1/2″ x 12″
Coredinations Aegean Mixed Dots – 7 1/4″ x 8 1/4″
Paper No 10 – 7″ x 8″
Photo mat – Coredinations Aegean Mixed Dots – 6 1/4″ x 5 1/4″

The chipboard scribbly circle is from Memory Maze’s Linda’s Scribble & Butterflies set.
I have cut this in half and painted it with white acrylic paint.

I have also added a few tiny pink flowers and white buds to the embellishment cluster.

The title was cut from the Aegean cardstock using Kaisercraft’s Upper Case dies and the leaves in the floral cluster were cut using Uniquely Creatives Little Leaf Die.

Here is the process video

I can’t wait to see how you use this sketch to showcase your photos.
