One-page Week, Part 2

One-page Sketch #17

"Cute Little Baby Things" by Noey Hunt
Products used - Patterned papers: Cosmo Cricket; Stickers: Deja Views (cute); Letters: Prima; Tools: Silhouette (onesie)

Variation 1: I shrunk the sketch. The album this layout goes in is only 8x8 inches, so I took all the sizes and shrunk them to 2/3 the original size. The photo is only 3x4 inches.

Variation 2: The stars did not fit my theme so I swapped out the large one for a baby onesie and the little ones for buttons.

Variation 3: Some minor adjustments. My title was extra long so I continued it next to the photo. Since there isn't much room on an 8x8 layout, I kept the journaling short and sweet.

“Your Name in Lights” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: American Crafts, Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper: Basic Grey, Bo Bunny; die cut borders, garland, chipboard, stickers: My Mind’s Eye; Ink: Clearsnap; spray mist: Tattered Angels; decorative tape: American Crafts; embroidery floss: DMC; letter stickers: Making Memories; star stamp: Li’l Davis

Variation #1 - I decided to flip flop the photo and the background paper the photo is on. Instead of five papers for the background photo mat I used one and instead of one photo, I used five that I merged together and printed as one. My photos turned out to be larger than the 6x4 in the sketch so I made the mat behind them larger, too.

Variation #2 - I matted my entire layout on a sheet of cardstock. I really wanted to use the red, white, and blue striped paper underneath the photos but it was on the back of the main piece of patterned paper. So I trimmed a small piece off which made the paper smaller than 12x12 so I mounted it on cardstock.

Variation #3 - I added some borders, die cuts, and stickers behind and on top of the star, and in the upper right corner for texture and interest.

Variation #4 - My title is smaller and less noticeable than the sketch so it wouldn’t compete with my son’s name in the photos.

Variation #5 - Instead of using stars and stitching them down for the border, I used the back side of the My Mind’s Eye garland and stamped stars on the circles. They were already stitched together!
