March Sketch: 12 x 12

A single photo sketch for the end of March....

5 Months
by Abbie

Abbie created this cute page using the simple sketch above. She took the circular elements of this sketch and actually stitched them into her page instead of cutting paper for them. Adorable page Abbie!

Notice Abbie has used one of the printable stamp images from The Cutting Cafe as one of her page embellishments.

The Big {4.0}
by Julie

Julie has created this pretty page and she's used all the elements of the sketch. She's even included a butterfly image to create a visual triangle using the 2 circles and the butterfly. Beautiful page Julie!

Notice that Julie has used a large printable stamp image from The Cutting Cafe on her page. She's scalloped the images edges to appear flower like.

March Sketch: Circle Page

A circle sketch for you today.....

by Julie

Julie has taken this circle sketch and used a die cut paper on a 12x12 page as her layout base. She's taken her larger photos and allowed them to overlap so she can fit all of her sweet pictures on her page. I love this beautiful green background! Gorgeous page Julie!

Big Sister
by Cherie

Cherie has taken this circular sketch and made it into a 12x12 page. She shifted her photos and her journaling spot to fit her page but resemble the sketch. She also took the long strip of paper and moved it to the right of her page a bit more. A super cute result Cherie!

My Sweet Potato
by Nicole

Nicole has taken the elements of the sketch and striped them down to only the essentials. She's removed one of the photo spots to create a page with more white space. What a cute little grin her son has! Fabulous page Nicole!

March Sketch: Rectangular Card

Gotta love polka dots!

Treasure Life's Little Moments
by Leah

I love how Leah has used the large bloom as one of her circles from the card sketch! She's even placed her greeting right over top of it. Did you see her pretty little butterflies in the circles? Adorable card Leah!

by Melanie

I love that Melanie has taken one of the circles from the sketch and had it hang over the edge of her card. Super clever! She's even added a fun image over top of the basic card sketch to make the card her own! Great card Melanie!

Hugs... Get Well Soon
by Dawne

Dawne has taken the circles from the sketch and stitched them into her card instead of cutting actual circles from paper. She's even taken some pleated paper to give her card a "ribbon" effect. Dawne's used some printable stamp images from The Cutting Cafe on her card today. Beautiful card Dawne!

March Sketch: 12 x 12

A rather "round" sketch for you today....

Ride Around the Block
by Jana P.

Jana has used all the multiple circles on the sketch to load her page full of sweet photos of her kids! She's taken the space left for her title and used it for her space for journaling. Great use of the sketch Jana! Love all the photos!

Bath Buds
by Abbie

For Abbie, she minimized the amount of circles on the sketch as to not overwhelm her sweet photos. She literally taken the round shapes from the sketch and mimicked the bubbles from her photos. Super cute page Abbie!

Hunting Eggs
by Tonya

Tonya has also taken the hint from the circles in the sketch and made her page all about something "round"; eggs! Clever designers, huh? I love her use of Spring colours too! Fabulous page Tonya!

March Sketch: Square Card

I love creating with square card sketches...

Little Sweetheart Cupcake
by Dawne

Love how Dawne has interpreted this card sketch! She's taken the mini stars from the sketch and made them into mini cupcakes to match her focal image. How yummy is that! Dawne used the cupcake images from The Cutting Cafe for her card today.

by Melanie

Melanie has taken the sketch elements and shapes directly from the sketch. I love the masculine feel of this card! Great job Melanie!

by Leah

Leah took this sketch for her pretty card and made the central shape and made it quite ornate and feminine. She taken the stars from the sketch and placed some delicate flowers with pearl centers on them. Very beautiful card Leah!
