Two-Page Week, Part 5 and two bonus sketches

We apologize for the delay in posting. We had some technical difficulties with the site.

Two-page Sketch #13

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

"The 80's are Calling" by Christy Arthur
Products - Hero Arts: Typewriter Stamp; October Afternoon: 5&dime Root Beer Barrels, Bubble Gum, Jawbreakers, Butterscotch, Lemondrops, Word and Shape Stickers, Miscellany; Crate Paper: Emma's Shoppe Borders, Phrase Stickers, Accent Cuts and Chipboard; Portrait Accent Cuts; Jenni Bowlin: Bingo Alpha Tile; Sassafras: Numerical Chipboard; Ranger: Adirondack Pitch Black ink; Studio Calico: Mister Huey Calico White and Pickle, Green Woodgrain fabrip; Other: Twine

• I used the left side of the two page sketch and turned it into a one page layout.

• I used four smaller 3x3 photos instead of the two larger 6x4 photos in the sketch.

• I layered different journaling cards behind the photos instead of the one, larger rectangle of paper in the sketch. I made that "rectangle" of journaling cards slightly smaller than the rectangle in the sketch (mine does not stretch behind the top horizontal strip).

• I made the banner smaller so it was in the corner more than stretching across the page like the sketch.

• I used a journaling card instead of the 4x4 photo and hid my journaling behind the accent card.

• I added a date accent to the bottom left corner, that is not in the sketch.

"A Day of Fun and Sun" by Melissa Elsner
Supplies - Paper, Border and Banner stickers: Pink Paislee; Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket; Stamp: Inkadinkado; Stamp Ink: Versafine; Border Punch, Corner Punch: EK Success

Design Notes: I was very excited to see some banners on this sketch but didn't have enough photos to fill up a two pager. I shrunk it to the one page and used one of the spots for a photo as a journaling block. To create the banner, I snipped off the triangles from the border sticker by Pink Paislee and then adhered them with pop dots. To create the areas where an embellishment was suppose to go, I simply stamped on the patterned paper and cut out the images.
