"Fun on the 4th" by Christine Chain
Supplies - Patterned paper: Jillibean Soup (Watermelon Gazpacho and Blossom Soup); Banana Leaf paper: Creative Imaginations; Stickers and alphabets: Jillibean Soup; Pen: Slickwriter by American Crafts

Variation #1 - I swapped out the stars on the left for a bunch of labels and stickers.

When I first saw this sketch, I thought, "Cool, this will be perfect for my Fourth of July photo!". Then I went to the scrapbook store, so naturally I bought more than I needed, including a sheet of stickers from Jillibean Soup. I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone and had fun with lots of stickers here.

Variation #2 - I moved the title down onto the photo and to the right.

I like the idea of the title on the top, but my papers were too busy, and I had a nice open spot on my photo asking for some word art.

Variation #3 - I skipped the journaling strips and used a label sticker instead. I had been contemplating this design change, and then I realized I didn't have anymore matching cardstock. Done. I like the label here.

"Gotcher Game On" by Michele Edwards
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: The Paper Company, Creative Imaginations, Moxxie; Embellishments: Stars cut with die-namics, Queen and Company rhinestones; Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook); Floss: DMC.

I always love sketches like this. All those bits and pieces of paper really pop. Another thing I love about this, other than the background cardstock, all the paper came from my scrap bin!


1. I stayed true to the sketch, the main difference was that I stretched the sketch to cover two pages.

2. I used pop-dots to raise some of the stars.

"Twinkle" by Janette Kincaid
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle; Letter Stickers: Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey; Floss/String: DMC and Martha Stewart Crafts (Cotton Hemp Yarn, Red); Brads and Staples: unknown

The second I saw this sketch I knew the photo and papers I wanted to use. I love it!! Although my large star ended up just a wee bit bigger and I didn’t use quite as many little stars to the left of the photo, I copied the sketch almost to the letter.

Variation #1 - I stapled a length of red string over the little layered stars in place of the stitching.

Variation #2 - Rather than paper strips behind the photo I used a patterned paper with stripes instead – this is just a touch smaller in size.

Variation #3 – I pleated the thin horizontal strip and placed it under the photo mat rather than on top.
