Sunday Sketch | Kelly Noel

This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout featuring a grid design of embellishments in vertical columns, with a horizontal photo, journaling, and title in the lower left-hand corner of the page. Our card sketch has a wide strip of patterned paper at the top with a textured divider down the middle horizontally and a title in the lower right-hand corner. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" card with a tabbed, circle punched paper over a photo allowing the photo to peek through and a 3" x 4" card with heavy journaling. Creative Team member Kelly Noel is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's card sketch! Be sure to follow Kelly here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Our scrapbook sketch comes from Jen Chapin's I Collect Memories layout:

Our card sketch comes from Lisa Spangler's Hello card:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Nancy Damiano's Road to Hana spread:

And here's Kelly's take on our card sketch:

Hello, SC friends! I loved this week's sketches and there were so many ways to interpret them. I ultimately decided on using Lisa's card sketch. I loved the simple design and knew it would translate well on my layout. 

I stuck to the sketch almost exactly with the two strips of patterned paper at the top of my layout and the title/sentiment just underneath on the right-hand side. I simply added a photo to the left side of my title and added a few embellishments to the white space in the photo. 

To finish off the page, I added some journaling to the bottom of the page, right in the center. I love the way this page turned out and it took no time at all since I had a great sketch to guide me. I can't wait to see what you do with this week's sketches!

    I made a super quick Christmas card using the card sketch. I predict I’ll be making lots of cards from this sketch!

    I was inspired by the pocket page sketch, but instead of two 3x4 cards next to each other I have placed the cards on top of each other and made a scrapbbook layout.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
