"Coastal Craze" by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Patterned Paper: Echo Park; Alpha: Thickers; Elements: Kristin Aagard's Tropical Paradise digital kit; Cardstock: Bazzill; Tools: corner rounder


• I reduced my photos to 2.5x3

• I aligned all of my photos horizontally

• I switched the journaling area from the bottom right to the top right and placed embellishments there vs. the journaling

• I replaced the leaves with a palm tree and other elements.

• I matted the entire layout onto cardstock and then matted the pattern paper onto cardstock as well.

• Instead of the horizontal strip of pattern paper, I put some waves in.

"We Connect" by Melissa Elsner
Products - Cardstock, Patterned Paper, Thickers, Stickers, Journal Spot: American Crafts (Amy Tangerine); Letter Stickers: Sassafras Lass (woodgrain); Flower: Prima Marketing; Pen: Zig Memory System

Variation #1: For the photos, I decided to do one large 4x6 instead of two 3x4's and two 3x2's where there was one 3x4.

Variation #2: Instead of the stitched element on the left side of the layout, I did a cluster of embellishments to help balance out the layout and spread out my title.

Variation #3: Because of the choice to do two smaller photos on the right, it left less room for the large journaling area so I used a journal spot so I could fit in my writing.

"Handsome" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies used - cardstock: Bazzill Basics; patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle, Lily Bee; ribbon: Pine Cone Press; chipboard and doilie: Maya Road; buttons: My Minds Eye; flowers: Making Memories; die cut: Quikcutz; stickers: Studio Calico, Pink Paislee; journal spot: Elle's Studio; ink: Colorbox; twine: Creek Bank Creations; pens: American Crafts, Sakura Souffle

Variation #1: I only used one sheet moving horizontally across the page versus the the two with the break between. I felt that the stark contrast of the brown trees and light blue background created a visual break.

Variation #2: I used different picture sizes to accommodate what I had.

Variation #3: My title is in a different location. This is largely due to viability. It was difficult to read anywhere else.

Variation #4: I still have the trio of embellishments, in this case flowers, that are on the sketch but slightly lower than mapped out.

I LOVE the stitching of the fluttering leaves but it would have gotten lost on the background paper I chose.

Variation #5: Extra background matting with stitching and cluster of goodies at the top of the patterned paper.

Love this sketch! I don't see it available on the download page. Am I the only one?

It's there. Sometimes the sketches take awhile to upload to the page. :)

Wonderful layouts today! So many great substitutions for those falling leaves! :)
