This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout featuring heavy journaling with highlighted titles above a grid design of photos. Our card sketch has a central focal point above a title and simple embellishment. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" title card with embellishment and a 4" x 6" photo card featuring two images with a centered title. Creative Team member Lisa Spangler is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's card sketch! Be sure to follow Lisa here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.
Our scrapbook sketch comes from Kelly Noel's Blue Ridge layout:
Our card sketch comes from Carson Riutta's Rain & Rainbows card:
And our pocket page sketch comes from Nancy Damiano's Sanibel spread:
And here's Lisa's take on our card sketch:
Hi there and happy Sunday! Hope you're having a great day! For my sketch, I decided to use Kelly's scrapbook sketch to make a card. I had to modify it a bit so that it would work with the smaller format, but I just love how it turned out—and I would never have thought of using this layout on my own. That's the beauty of sketches!
Instead of photos, I did some stamping with a resist technique. I first stamped those leaves from the Sloth set by Life.Love.Paper with VersaMagic ink on white cardstock and heat embossed them with clear powder (if you don't have VersaMagic ink, white pigment ink will also do the trick!). Then I sponged on ColorTheory Inks right over top of the stamping. The embossing resists the ink and the leaves just pop! I used a mix of dye and pigment inks for this, just going by what colors I had on hand. The rest of the card is pretty straightforward—can't wait to mail off this happy hello!
Thanks so much for joining me and hope you have a great weekend with time to get crafty! xo
