First up is my Pages With Papertrey sketch for August. This month, I chose Sketch #146 from Got Sketch? Unfortunately, I can't post the sketch here on my blog, but if you click on the link, you'll get to see it, along with several fabulous layout by their DT.
(I realize that this is a one photo sketch, but I think it would be really easy to make it a two or three photo layout, just by putting several photos in the space of the large one.)
I decided to scale down the sketch and create a 8.5x11" layout using one 4x6 photo:
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (classic kraft, stamper's select white), stamps (think big favourites #17, star prints) and dies (mat stack 4, layerz mat stack 4, seeing stars). I also used My Mind's Eye patterned paper, diecut and brads.
Here's my journaling: "
And, as an extra note of good news, he’d also found out that he’d gotten a spot in the Jazz Choir for Grade Eight! A very good day!"
Here are some close-ups:
This layout will go in Austin's 8.5x11 album, right beside the text.
If you make a layout using this sketch, please link it up here in the comments or here on the PTI forum, so I can come and check it out!
And before I go, I wanted to share a card that I'd made that was published in September/October issue of Papercrafts magazine.
Here's my card:
I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white, spring moss, vintage cream, classic kraft), stamps (Think Big Favorites #3, Background Basics: Woodgrain, Label Basics), felt, button, twine and dies (leaf prints).
Thanks for looking!
