Chickaniddy Crafts May Layout Sketch

I have layout to share today that I made using this month's Chickaniddy Crafts sketch
& the wonderful  Twirly Girly & Date Night collections. 

Here's this month's sketch:

I decided to tweak the sketch by rotating the sketch 90˚ to the right. 
I also switched out two photos for some patterned paper journaling cards.

Here's my layout:

Supplies: Twirly Girly Paper (TG140S09; TG140S04, TG140S08);  Twirly Girly Mini Sticker Tags (TG14EB04); Date Night Paper (DN140S09, DN140S01), Date Night Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)

I layered some white card stock over the patterned paper and 
stitched it in place with my sewing machine.
I cut some 3x4"journaling cards from the Twirly Girly Keepsakes patterned paper 
to add instead of photos.

Tip: use patterned paper as inspiration to create coordinating embellishments.

I was inspired by the floral patterned paper to create some similar looking flowers with some dies & Chickaniddy Crafts patterned paper. I die cut the white flowers from the white flowers on the Date Night Awesome Blossom paper and then added the layers of solid coloured patterned paper. I stamped the centres using the Date Night clear stamps.

I trimmed down some of the mini tag stickers to add to my panel and 
stamped the date with my date stamp.
For my journaling, I created a frame from the journaling card by 
diecutting the ballerina with a rectangle die. 
I typed my journaling on the computer, printed it out on card stock 
and slipped it under the journaling card.

For my title, I die cut some alphabet dies and a "happy" die from the solid pink
 on the back of the itty bitty ballerina patterned paper. 
I love these panels of solid colour-- they make it so easy for everything to coordinate perfectly!

Be sure to stop by the Chickaniddy Crafts blog to see Kandis' & Allie's takes on the sketch.

Thanks for looking!

This is wonderful! I like the sketch for a SB page. Did a little scrapbooking myself over the long weekend. Fun break from cards.
