July: FINAL Sketch

And one last sketch for the month... a card sketch...

by Jess

For Jess' awesome summer themed card, I love that she used a stamp for the circle aspect of her card! And if you look closely (click the image), you can see she used some simple embossing for her long rectangular shape. Such a great summer card Jess!

Stay tuned tomorrow for DOWNLOAD DAY!

July Sketch: 8.5x11

A sketch with LOTS of photos for you today...

60 Years Young
by Aphra

For this beautiful page by Aphra, she has removed one of the photo's from the sketch and shifted the layout base to compliment her wonderful photos. I love the row of die cut butterflies that she used from our sponsor's kit this month, The Paper Passion. A beautiful page Aphra!

Climbing the Walls
by Zoe

I love the subject that Zoe chose to scrap about using this sketch... climbing walls; perfect for the placement of all the photos in the sketch. I love the clock images she has used to mimic the flourish in the design. A super fun page Zoe!

A very simple 2 photo sketch for you today....

For this cute page Jen has used one of the fun die-cut pieces and papers courtesy of this month's sponsor, The Paper Passion. I just love the fun girlie patterned paper and colour scheme she used on her layout! Adorable page Jen!

What's in Your Future?
by Frances

For Frances' page, she also used a variety of papers from our sponsor's kit this month! I love the circle and the mini file folder she has added to the sketch to use a base for her journaling area. Another wonderful page Frances!

July Sketch: Card

I love cards with a little bit of a different opening. This one has a flap with a window in it!

Just BEE-cause
by Tracy

I love Tracy's take on this fun card sketch! I love that she used the sketch to a "T" but made it her own using some fun colours and that cute little bee stamp! Simply an adorable card Tracy!

July Sketch: 12x12

I thought I'd try out a new shape... kind of an acorn shape as a base....

It's Tradition
by Nicole

For Nicole's beautiful family page, she used the base of the "acorn shape" and adapted to a more traditional shape, a label shape. She also combined the 2 square photos and used one single large photo. A simply gorgeous page Nicole!

A fun starry sketch for you today....

Sweet Cherries
by Tracy

Simply a sweet card made by Tracy using this sketch! I love the different coloured cherries used as her 3 focal images and such a fun use of the sketch! Super cute card Tracy!

by Jess
Even though Jess using the three star images on her card, she made this sketch her own by adding the little flip to her corners... I love that! Such a wonderful card Jess!

by Tina

For this fun card by Tina, she die cut our some pretty butterf;y shapes and added them to some fun patterned papers. I love the added touch of stitching she has a finishing touch! Pretty card Tina!

July Sketch: 24x12

We haven't had a double page sketch for awhile so I thought I'd throw this one in the mix...

Last Stand
by Jenn S.

I love Jenn's interpretation of this sketch! I love the label shaped journaling area instead of the long rectangle and I love that she's used a brochure from her trip tucked under the small photo on the right hand side of her page. Wonderful page Jenn!
