I'm super excited to be feature this month over at Stick it Down.
Here's the sketch I based my layout
I was looking at two different options for this layout
1. I still need to do graduation picture
for my oldest, but when I looked at cropping the photos to the smaller sizes on
the right-hand page, I figured it wouldn't work out.
So, onto option 2. Swag sale- I had a
bunch of photos of the evergreen swags Danielle and I made and cutting them
down a bit didn't really take away from the overall photos.
though the photos are of evergreen swags for Christmas decorations I wasn't
feeling the traditional colors associated with Christmas. The Swags even
sported bright icy blues, lime greens and Silver/ White adornments. My
layout definitely reflects our color choice. I opted not to use the
big bow on the sketch as it also felt traditional. I also substituted felt flowers and hand drawn leaves for the holly embellishments. Totally love how this
Last one of the layouts I made at Croptober retreat
I didn't get it in with the last post as I did an alteration with glitter glue as the title cut out was the wrong color. Super easy to fix with a maker for background and glitter glue on top.
The paper pack is one from National Scrapbook day event that I didn't get to attend, but had to have the paper. Perfect for a birthday themed layout. The Party cut out was from a giveaway from my CM consultant, however as stated above wae not in the color palate I needed. So glad to have got it out of my stash and onto a page.
I've been really hit and miss on here. I started a new job last month and my only creative time has been the retreat I attended towards the end of October. I just relaized I never shared the layouts I got done. So while I'm waiting for inspiration to strike I might as welll share. Alot of the layouts where created for the Creative memories live crop last month and I did post a few of them to that forum.
For Challenge #1 I stuck really close to the original sketch, however I didn't use CM products from the last 6months. The paper is from a year to remeber which is on the older side. Oh well, I was playing for the pure inspiration of the sketches and not to win prizes
Challenge #2 has an extra photo in the layout but works because I changed the cut dimensions.
Got to use a TSR kit for this one
Challenge #4, yup I skipped #3 as I wasn't feeling the circle cut photos.
Anyway I did just the left side of the layout of my Daughter and I running with
Team Red, White and Blue
Challenge#5 I flipped on it's side and made the photos larger.
I also didn't round the corners and replaced the scallops with the flower punch.
Challenge #6 I think was my favorite. I moved the journaling to the top as I wanted lots of space to write about my amazing daughter. She created an inspiration board for her bedroom, with quotes and messages to her self.
So there you have it the Virtual challenge from October
