One-Page Week, Part 1

 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Welcome to One-Page Week. We've got a ton of layouts, 18 to be exact, to share with you this week, all based on the sketch below. It's going to be a fun week! Today the layouts from Mireille, Christina, and Jill are great examples of following the sketch all while adding your own style and flare. 

One-page sketch #2


You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the one-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.



"Monster Jam" by Christina Hoffman
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill (white) and Archiver's (purple); Patterned Cardstock: We R Memory Keepers (Funfetti); Alphabets: Doodlebug Designs (monster) and American Crafts (jam); Paint: Making Memories (for tires and wheels); Ink: Colorbox (charcoal) and Staz-On (timber brown); Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Chipboard (for wheels): unknown

Layout Details:

Patterned Papers: I knew when I found the pictures for this project that I did not want to use some busy patterned papers that could possibly take away from the pictures. So, I opted for bright/bold papers with simple little polka dots. All papers were chalked with Colorbox Chalk Ink in charcoal.

Pictures: I kept all of my pictures the size that was suggested on the sketch. All pictures were inked with Staz-On in timber brown.

Title and Journaling: I wanted my title to stand out but I didn’t want it to be too overwhelming so I opted to use a smaller font for the longest word, “Monster” and a larger font for the shortest word, “Jam”.


I also used one of the stars for my journaling block since I knew I wasn’t going to write much about this page. I wanted the tickets to stand out more than the journaling. The tickets and stars were chalked with Colorbox Chalk Ink in charcoal.

Embellishments: I used my Cricut to make the monster truck. The actual truck already had tires but I cut them off and recreated a more rugged look.


 Since the chipboard was already thick I went ahead and applied pop dots behind the truck body to give it a 3-D look. I cut the banner and the stars out from opposite sides of the polka dot papers. All embellishments were chalked with Colorbox Chalk Ink in charcoal and pop doted.

"October 25" by Mireille Divjak
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Glitz - Hoopla collection; Alpha's: American Crafts Thickers - Giftbox; Rubons: Glitz - Hoopla; Ink: Colorbox; Pens: American Crafts and Sakura; Liquid Pearls: Ranger- silver; Buttons: Bo Bunny Press; Star: Heidi Swapp Transparant Star; Paint: Making Memories; Stickles: Ranger; Floss: We R Memory Keepers; Tools: Sew Easy - We R Memory Keepers

I didn't change anything, I just used the sketch. It was perfect just the way it was.

The pictures are from Amber's birthday party. She celebrated her 6th birthday.

I love that it's a one page layout and has more then one picture on it. That first one is so cool, love how you made a truck & the tires are fun. The middle one is good too using the exact sketch. The last one is fun with the color and b/w pictures. Love the Christmas embellishments.

I can't believe theirs going to be 18 layouts this week, that is going to be fun. The giveaway sponsors are some of my favorites too, thank you again Allison and dream team.

I rarely do one-page layouts...I'm a double-page layout gal...but I think I might try this. I, too, love the fact that there is more than one picture on the page.
Great work today!
