"Emma Age 4" by Tammy Tutterow
Supplies - patterened paper, specialty paper, and cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Worth Remembering 8x8 paper collection); 12x12 black cardstock stickers: Bazzill Basics Paper (Worth Remembering Sticker Sheet); die cuts: Bazzill Basics Paper (Worth Remembering Die Cuts) embellishments: Bazzill Basics Paper (Worth Remembering Pretty Buttons), Adhesive Pearls, Flower Gems; Mini Paper Clip: Tim Holtz Idea-ology; alphabets: American Crafts (Thickers, Shoebox), K&Co (Glitter Alphabet, Coral); Silver Glitter: Making Memories; ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Black Soot); Marker: Copic Marker R89 (used to turn pink "4" to red); trim: Maya Road (Black Velvet Ric Rac); tools: Fiskars XXXL Circle Punch

For my page, I stayed pretty true to the original sketch, making only a few slight changes.  I really loved the large circle design on one of my pieces of patterned paper, so I used it and added several layers to it and made it a focal point in one of the three squares.

I moved my title to the right a bit so I needed to move my ribbon and button in the upper left square
to accommodate the title.

 I moved the ribbon and button in the third square so that it mirrored the placement in the left square.

The photo I wanted to use looked best to me in a square so I filled the original photo space with
a photo mat and placed the photo in that space.

I didn't really have anything I wanted to journal about this photo (I just love the photo and wanted to celebrate it with a pretty page built around it) so I omitted the journal strips.

"Mr. Personality" by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Max & Whiskers); Alpha Stickers: Doodlebug (Loopy Lou Letters), Quickuts Die; 3D Stickers & Other Embellishments: Basic Grey (Max & Whiskars); Floss: We R Memory Keepers; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (Vintage Photo)

I have had this collection of paper in my stash for quite a while and when I found this photo I thought it was the perfect opportunity to use it. Last month I did my one-page sketch using a photo of Cooper and this month he is the star again (this time he is much younger).

Variation #1 – I didn’t vary too many things from the sketch. I liked it just the way it was. I used two layers of paper for the squares and then added an outline of black stitching. I added the strips shown on the sketch using a border sticker and matting it on black cardstock. Instead of the flowers, I added some stickers that were themed to my layout.

Variation #2 – I love to mat my photos. I used a 5 x 7 picture and matted it with black and teal cardstock.

Variation #3 – I added a border and a row of stitching to the bottom of my layout.

"Valentine's Day Love" by Noey Hunt
Products used - Paper: Bazzill Bling, Making Memories (aqua floral & note paper), SEI (pink floral); Flowers: Prima; Brads: American Crafts; Letters: Jillibean Soup (white), Making Memories (green); Tools: Cricut Country Life cartridge (apron)

Variation 1: I wanted to make this layout work with Valentine's paper and not just match the warm tones of the photo. I selected a bold pattern (the pink floral) to start the "transformation." Because I used bold patterns for two of the three squares, I simplified the striped strips into solid.

Variation 2: I liked how this scrap of simple notebook paper worked with my other two patterned squares. I decided to use the notebook paper for my journaling instead of adding strips like on the sketch. But I needed to replace the strips somehow for balance. The apron continues the homemade meal theme from the photo. It completes the visual triangle of green elements on the page and finishes off the decorative corner of the layout.

I have a question about the information on the downloaded sketch. Under placements it says the photo is 2 inches from the top. Since there is a 3 inch square about it and then a space I am quessing that the placement of the photo may be 2 inches from the bottom. Or is it that the 3 inch blocks are placed 2 inches form the top?

I am looking forward to using this sketch. There are so many inspirational layouts posted. Thanks!
