Add-on Week, Part 3

••••••••••••••
Add-on Sketch #9

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.


"Picture Perfect" by Christy Arthur
Products - Bazzill: Cardstock; Crate Paper: Emma's Shoppe Playhouse and Phrase Stickers, Portrait
Bridesmaids; My Minds Eye: Lime twist Fly a Kite Spring Zag; Studio Calico: Mister Huey Orchard, Countryside Barn Swallow; Sassafras: Mix and Mend Fancy Free; October Afternoon: Mini Market Stickers Ledger and Black and Cream

I used the camera as an accent on a layout layered with similar colors.


My camera is slightly larger than the sketch camera {about 4-1/2" x 3"}. I added three small strips of contrasting paper for decoration, slightly off center on the camera. I added some contrasting mist (applying it more like paint) around the large lens circle and another contrasting wood grain circle to the smaller circle. I cut out a viewfinder and applied some contrasting paper behind it and added the same paper for the flash.

"Self Portrait" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup, October Afternoon; Stickers: Jillibean Soup; Circle Tags: Ormolu; Film Strip: Tim Holtz; Alpha Stickers: October Afternoon, Heidi Grace, Sketch: Scrapbook Generation/Allison Davis; Stamp: Unity; Ink: Colorbox

I made the camera bigger and chose to leave the "flash" off. I popped the "lens" and put the Jillibean camera sticker in the center. Otherwise, viola! Your camera!

"Mini Album" by Shari Thurman
Supply List - Patterned Paper, Flip Notes, Cardstock stickers and alphabets: Pink Paislee; Ink: Colorbox Chalk Ink; Tools: Crop-A-Dile by We R Memory Keepers: Other: Machine Stitching

I have a really bad habit of printing off several copies of my favorite photos of my boys with good intentions of framing some and giving others to their grandparents. This leaves me with a lot of extra photos. I used this weeks sketch to create a mini album for all those extra favorite photos I have of my youngest son Jackson.

I used a collection of Flip Notes by Pink Paislee for the base of my mini album. I removed and measured the acrylic cover so that I would know what size to make my camera. I adjusted the add-on sketch measurements to fit my album, inked the edges and added decorative stitching. I punched holes in the bottom of my camera and added the camera and acrylic cover back in the mini album.

I placed my photos on the pages and added cardstock stickers and alphabets to embellish the pages.
