This week our scrapbook sketch is a 12" x 12" layout featuring four vertical photos in a strip across the page with various sentiments, journaling, and embellishments in the bottom half of the page. Our notebook sketch has repeated stamped images on the left page and a full-page photo under a large title on the right. And our pocket page sketch features a 3" x 4" photo with a small sentiment and a 3" x 4" journaling card with patterned paper strips in the upper left corner on a diagonal. Creative Team member Barbara Picinich is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch! Be sure to follow Barbara to see more of her work and keep up with her.

And here's Barbara's take on our scrapbook sketch:
Hello, everyone. Barbara here to share a take on this weeks Sunday Sketches. I'm a big fan of linear or grid style layouts, so when I saw Maggie's, I knew I had to use it. Her layout is so awesome and I love the strip of stamped images she placed below her photos.
I followed her sketch fairly closely so the first step for me was choosing the photos and cropping them so I could fit four across the page. I didn't have washi tape in the kits so I ended up cutting a piece of one of the Scrapbook Kit papers to place below my photos. Instead of using stamps on this layout, I decided to use some of the awesome chipboard elements I had left over from the Scrapbook Kit and the Documenter Kit. I thought it would be a fun way to use those up in place of stamping images. In order to save some space, I ended up placing the chipboard pieces on top of my orange paper. It helps ground them and I like the contrast of the colored paper and the chipboard. To fill in the gaps on the edges, I cut down two of the tickets from the Scrapbook Kit and let them hang off the page. I love how the colors of these two tags tie in with the chipboard.
To title my page, I used the chipboard alpha in the Scrapbook Kit aligned as she did on the sketch to the right side of the page. I printed and cut some journaling on vellum, and instead of centering it below the block of photos and chipboard, I decided to align it to the right side like the title. I didn't want it to compete with the band of chipboard pieces and thought it worked better on that side since I didn't have as much space below my photos as her original layout did.
I hope you enjoy the sketches this week and I hope this gives you an idea on how to use up the elements from your kits this month.
