Welcome to day one of One-Page Week! I can't believe that we are nearing the end of February already. Today's layouts from Christina, Mireille, and Tammy are great examples of following the sketch while adding your own style, elements, and finishing touches.

Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: KI Memories; Alphabet: American Crafts, Doodlebug Designs, and Kaiser Craft; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Apple: unknown; Craft wire: unknown; Ribbon: unknown; College Ruled Paper: Mead
I only made two changes to my layout. The first one being, I added a scalloped border underneath my bottom strip. The next change was to my journaling area, I made it a 1/2 inch wider. To make the journaling paper look like a spiral notebook I punched the side of the paper with a craft punch, then I started curling craft wire till I got the shape I wanted.

"Signs of Spring" by Tammy Tutterow
For my layout based on the sketch, I stayed pretty true to the basics of the sketch with the only major change being that I chose to make all photo blocks 3" x 3" and only placed photos in four of the sections. I loved the papers so much that I honestly didn't want to cover it all up with photos!
This paper inspired me to think of spring so I pulled out some photos I snapped last year of things that I felt are some of the first signs of spring: the bunnies coming out to nibble, the Lenten Rose sprouting in my flower bed, and the daffodils and forsythia blooming in my neighborhood. I am generally not much of a journaler, but now that the page is finished, I wish I had made a place for a block of journaling to talk about the significance of those things and the arrival of spring (my most favorite season).
Here's a closer look at some of the details:
