Kristin here, hoping you are having some scrappy goodness today! I want share my take on this sketch by Creative Scrappers that we are using as our inspiration for our April Layout Sketch Challenge. I used our springy March 2012 Hip Kit to create my page. this was such a fun sketch to work with and I am really happy with the way my page turned out. Hopefully it will inspire you to create a layout of your own and join in our challenge this month.
To create an interesting background, I stamped a subtle pattern using the chevron stamp from the American Crafts Stamp Set that was included in our March Embellishment Add On Kit. I also added some paint splatters with my Mister Huey’s Opaque White Mist. I did some random crazy machine stitching to give my page some finishing touches.
One of my favorite things from our March Hip Kit(s) was the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch (Embellishment Add-On). I used this punch along with some scraps of glossy photo paper to embellish around the 3 smaller photos in the left hand corner of my page. I thought that they were a fun little addition and glossy paper gives it a little extra POP. This punch makes it really easy to use some of the extra scraps you having sitting around.
Happy scrapping! I can’t wait to see the pages you create using this sketch as your inspiration!
