"Click It" by Janette Kincaid
SuppliesPatterned paper: We R Memory Keepers and Chatter Box; corrugated alpha: JillyBean Soup; embroidery floss: DMC; ribbon, tape measure, white tag: unknown

I took quite a few creative liberties with the sketch this week and I love the results. It just goes to show how versatile Alison’s sketches can be – how they can inspire and take you in a direction you didn’t even think about when you start.

Variation #1 – I replaced the three 3x4 photos with one enlarged 5x7 photo.

Variation #2 – I moved the title from the top to the bottom of the layout.

Variation #3 – I replaced the journal block with the camera. You might recognize the camera from the Add-on Sketch from a few weeks ago. I just LOVED Alison’s take of this sketch with the stitched heart on the lens – I knew I had to scraplift it. I did scale my version of the camera up a bit; the blue base is 3x5 in size.

Note: I added my journaling to a white tag that is tucked into a slot at the top of the page – behind the hearts and strung with red floss.

Variation #4 – I changed the embellishment cluster at the top left of the page and replaced the leaves with a repeat of hearts like in the camera.

Variation #5 – I love the colourful poka-dots in this patterned paper. I didn’t want to cover any more of the background than I already had so I mirrored the shape of the left with some red stitching instead.

“My Boy and His Furry Friend” by Megan Bickers
Supplies Used - Cardstock: ANW Crestwood (Deep Sea), Close To My Heart (White); Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye (Life Stories: Blue Plaid, “Be Merry” Polka Dot/Cream), Memories in the Making (Window Check Navy); Inks: Ranger Distress (Gathered Twig), Ranger Distress Stain (Antique Linen), October Afternoon Color Mist (Buttermilk), Marvy Uchida (Black Marvy Matchables); Stamps: Technique Tuesday (Borderline: Family Ties), Stampabilities (Pawprint), EK Success (Antique Typewriter Alphas, “Friend” word stamp); Stickers: 7 Gypsies (Date Mini Label: Black), My Mind’s Eye (“Hattie” Boy Title), Deja Views (Family Journal Card); Pens: EK Success (Zig Black Writer); Tools: WeR Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper), Ranger (Foam Blending Tool), Making Memories (Paper Piercer); Other: Office Hole Punch, Sandpaper, Brown Crochet Thread, Foam Squares.

Variation #1: I substituted a photo in place of the journaling section on the layout; I just rearranged the layout to add my journaling in place of the left photo. I used two 4 x 5 ¼” photos and one 2 ½ x 4” photo.

Variation #2: Instead of using a long title, I used a pre-printed title card that said “My Boy” and I stamped the words “Furry” and “Friend”. The other words were handwritten.

Variation #3: I omitted the small journaling strips on the layout and just added a date sticker on the lower right corner.

Variation #4: For the leaf accents that were included on the sketch, I substituted some homemade legos and stamped pawprints to go with my page theme.

I created some hand stitched swirls to pull them all together. I also added some stitching along one of the thin strips below my photos. Along the other strip of paper, I added some stamped word borders.

Mireille, what a great idea to use the circle die cut! I love your photos and the sewn details. Janette, I love your colorful layout. The camera and stitching add so much. Megan, your photos are darling; I love that you documented their friendship. And I really like the distressed colors you added to your papers to bring it all together!
