This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout featuring a repeating motif on the left-hand side, a large title near the top with journaling underneath, and a photo over layers. Our card sketch has a repeating title as the background and a stamped image as the main focal point. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" photo card with journaling and sentiment and 3" x 4" filler card with embellishment.

And here's Anna-Maria's take on our scrapbook sketch:
I had an extremely hard task this time. Yes, I used the scrapbook sketch based on one of your all-time favorite layouts from the Creative Team Gallery—an amazing project made by Nancy Damiano. I had to take as many of the great elements from this layout as possible and make it my own. I decided to create a pale, neutral project in shades of grey on a white background, with a pop of yellow and blue colors.
Nancy had this awesome butterfly motif. I changed it into the composition of stars. Her butterflies were painted, so I stamped some of my stars, and also added some black dots here and there.
The best part of this layout is a picture of Ryan Gosling (Yes, ladies! I scrapped that!). I combined few layers under it using patterned papers from the main kit, a piece of vellum, and an old label. I chose embellishments in yellow and blue shades, brads, and puffy stickers.
