Following A Scrapbook Layout

Hi scrappers, this is Kate from Sassy and Scrappy and I'm so excited to be here today. I was thrilled when Pam asked me to join her design team! For me first post I thought it would be fun to work with a sketch, so I chose the layout below from Page Maps. This is my take on the layout, of course there are multiple variations. The great thing about sketches is that you can switch things up to make it work for you.

Below is a picture of the sketch:

This is a picture of my finished layout...well finished as it can be without my pictures and journalling added. I normally include both of those, but this page was made in anticipation of the photos I'll take on my vacation. I'm really looking forward to spending a week at the beach with my family!

Alright, here you can see the die cut pieces I created for my layout. On the right is a rough idea of how I thought I would lay out my page. I didn't end up using the flip flops and sunglasses (but they are too cute and I know I'll use them for something) because I just couldn't find a good place for them.

I tried something new on this page. I stamped the sentiments on my journalling page and then colored them in with some Copic markers. I really like the idea of combining coloring and scrapbooking, so you'll probably see more of this from me.

To create another embellishment I used my circle punch to cut out one of the pattern circles. I love this paper and will probably use a bunch of these circles in the future to create a funky background for another layout. I have to admit that cutting up this paper was kind of difficult. I'm sure some of you can understand how difficult it can be to cut up paper you really like.

Okay, so my take on the sketch...I cut a similar "top note" shape to mat my pictures on. I placed my journalling card on the right just like the sketch, and stamped my title. Instead of using a scallop-edge on the horizontal piece of cardstock, I chose to use more of a wave shape, this helps to continue the beach theme of the layout. I added two embellishments, same as the sketch. A sticker page was included in this paper pack and it had a wonderful blue flourish, so I added that to the top of my page. Again, this image reminds me of water and continues the beach theme.

Kate love the layout and what a great way to create your own embelishments using punches. TFS. Love the neutral background which pops up the rest of layers on it.
