Sunday Sketch | Candace Perkins

This week our scrapbook sketch is a 9" x 11" layout featuring a wide strip of patterned paper on the top half of the page, a horizontal photo in the center, and a title with embellishment in the lower half. Our notebook sketch has a large verticle photo adhered with washi tape over a title on the left page and two smaller horizontal photos surrounded by embellishment and journaling on the right page. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" photo and a 3" x 4" card with a half-circle embellishment at the top and journaling at the bottom. Creative Team member Candace Perkins is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch! Be sure to follow Candace to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Our scrapbook sketch comes from Maggie Massey's Silly layout:

Our notebook sketch comes from Lisa Truesdell's On My Way | Mountain spread:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Kelly Noel's May Handbook spread:

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

I was so excited to work with the sketches again this month! I adore the sketches and I love how they inspire me to create fun spreads, perhaps in a way I may have never considered. This month I chose to create a new spread inspired by the beautiful scrapbook layout by Maggie Massey entitled “Silly.” 

What I noticed right away in the spread was the bold title, the three embellishments across the center, and the two blocks of paper as the base. I copied these elements onto my spread to bring my layout together in a snap! Using paper and embellishments from the On My Way collection, I added a photo of my four cute boys. 

I loved that Maggie just added a tiny bit of journaling and the ages of the kids in the photo. Sometimes we don’t need a lot of words—just the facts and a memorable photo. So in love with the final layout!

    My take on the Sunday sketch. Used the opportunity to document the early morning flights when I am on business travel.
