Add-on Sketch #8


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

Between the four of us in my house three of us celebrate birthdays in May, June, and July. The late Spring/beginning of Summer, I end up with a lot of birthday photos and that was probably the reason behind the design of Add-on Sketch #8, a birthday hat. Birthday layouts are one of my favorites to make because there are so many fun ways to make your embellishments (cakes, presents, balloons, etc) out of simple supplies like paper and ribbon.

The best part about the add-on sketch for this month is that the design can be used for more than birthday themes. You can use the same concept for a Christmas tree or flip it and turn it into an ice cream cone or a decorative pennant on a banner.

We've got many examples of this sketch to share this week so make sure you come back on Monday to see the different ways we used it.

I love this idea Allison, you ROCK!!
Feeling like this week is going to be filled with awesome projects already.

By the way Allison do you sit and sketch for these add-on weeks? Or do you have another way of thinking these ideas. They are always fun so curious to know how you come up with them. Thanks again.

Thank you Dawn! I have lots of ideas for add-on sketches and have a list of a ton of things I want to turn into a sketch. I just think of a theme and what kind of embellishments I can make myself with somewhat simple shapes and supplies. And a lot of them have been embellishments that I have created myself and I just built the sketch based on it. :)
