"The Hunt" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies - Cardstock: Coredinations, Bazzill; Patterned Paper: We R Memory Keepers, BoBunny, October Afternoon, American Crafts; Paper Flowers and Tags: American Crafts; Letter Stickers: Basic Grey, American Crafts; Felt Embellishments: World Market; Punch: Fiskars; Frame and Bravissimo: Making Memories; Wire Ribbon: Whimsy Trims; Tape: Kamoi Kakoshi

I changed up some of the picture sizes to suit what I had. I used a 4x6 instead the first 4x4. I used the acrylic frame instead of a 2x2 and I omitted a 4x6 and used patterned paper instead. My embellishment clusters are still in triplicate, just placed slightly differently. It was too busy to have something next to the title so I moved that one up to the top left.

Here is a closer look at some of the details:

"Happy Birthday" by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Cardstock: American Crafts
; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; 
Floss: We R Memory Keepers;
 Brads: American Crafts; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Vintage Photo); Scalloped Circle Punch: EK Success; Bakers Twine: My Mind’s Eye; Foam Adhesive: 3L; Stickles: Ranger; Cricut: Create A Critter & amp; Celebrations cartridges

This is one of my favourite two-page sketches! I love, love, love the banners and as soon as I saw them, I thought of making birthday banners!

Variation #1 – The placement of my banners is different than shown on the sketch. I used the banner on page 1 as part of my title. My banner says ‘Happy’ and then I used my Cricut to cut out the phrase ‘Birthday’.

I placed the second banner on page 2 and it says ‘Celebrate’. I eliminated the third banner all together.

Variation #2 – I replaced the butterfly images with the owls that were part of the pattern papers. I hand cut them out and used foam adhesive to pop them up. I used one to embellish my title, one by the banner and the other by the presents.

Variation #3 – I decided to replace the 2x2 photos and make an embellishment instead. I created some presents by layering different size squares. I started with 2x2 squares for the base and then decreased the size by ¼ inch each time. The top layer is popped up with foam adhesive. Allison has done something similar to this on layouts and I just loved the idea and wanted to give it a try. I used my Cricut and cut out the cross with the burst for the present topper.

Variation #4 – For my journaling, I typed out the verse for the Happy Birthday song and then cut it into strips. I cut out the word ‘happy’ several times from one of the pattern papers and used foam adhesive to pop it up over the typed word.

Variation #5 - I added a stitched scalloped border above the journaling and added punched out circles from the pattern paper.

I really like this sketch! Banners seemed intimidating for a 2-page layout but with the help of this sketch, I think I can finally create one. Just signed up for your Super Sketch Club too. :)

Awesome LO's to both of you! I love the boy/owl theme and your detail Carolyn! Suzanna-love your grass and banner, Your pics stand out so well..great color choices!

Carolyn, I like how you simplified the banners. You've inspired me to use this on a birthday LO of my own.

Suzanna, I love how you used that acrylic frame as an embellishment without a picture underneath. I always struggle to find the right picture to put under those, and now I feel like I've been set free. Such a little thing, and yet I've never thought to do that.

What great layouts! Thanks for the inspiration, ladies.

I like the substitution of the typed words with the word strips or what I call wordfetti! Great job!
