Sunday Sketch | Lisa Truesdell

This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout divided into roughly ⅓ and ⅔ vertically, featuring repeating elements and a square photo on the right-hand side of the page. Our card sketch has a background filled with stamped images and a central sentiment with simple embellishment. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" photo card on the left-hand side and a 3" x 4" title card with heavy journaling on the right-hand side. Creative Team member Lisa Truesdell is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook 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 JB&S layout:

Our card sketch comes from Carson Riutta's Beleaf You Me card:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Carson Riutta's Autumn Splendor spread:

And here's Lisa's take on our scrapbook sketch:

As we head into the holiday season, I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane. Each year at the start of December, we kick off our the season with a visit to a Holiday Farmers Market in our neighborhood. We've gone for the last 4 years, and as you can see, my kids have grown just a liiiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit over that time. I loved the composition of Kelly's sketch, so I started my page by arranging patterned paper on the right side, similar to her design. My photos lined up nicely on top of the patterned paper, and then I mimicked the feel of the other side of her page with scattered embellishments and bits of paper. The mix of elements in the Making Spirits Bright collection gave me a lot of options for finishing off my page!

    I made a layout inspired by the scrapbook sketch. I have cut it down to 9x12 to fit my album.

    Thank you for the challenge!
