"Awesome" by Christine Chain
Suppliespatterned paper: October Afternoon, Echo Park, My Mind’s Eye (Sweet Caroline), Cosmo Cricket; epoxy paper clip: My Mind’s Eye (Sweet Caroline); letters: American Crafts (Thickers), Authentique; chipboard accents: Bella Blvd; label sticker: Cosmo Cricket; interview questions: Cathy Zielske’s Story Guide Layered Template #1; ink: Tsukineko; other: embroidery floss

I decided to use a picture taken of my son on his 7th birthday and incorporate an interview with him for my journaling. The questions came from Cathy Zielske’s Story Guide Layered Template #1 available from Designer Digitals.

Variation #1 – I didn’t use anywhere near as many embellishments! I wanted this layout to be a bit more “clean and simple” since it’s about my son. Not that a layout about a boy can’t have embellishments, but I really liked how it looked without much extra.

Variation #2 – I used a few label and word stickers, plus a “7” (since this is when Brandon turned seven) in place of the flower/button embellishments.

Here's a closer look at the details:

"Summer Moments" by Jennifer Larson
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: K'esi Art, Pebbles, Crate Paper, Jillibean Soup; Stickers: October Afternoon, K'esi Art, Glitz; Corrugated letters: Jillibean Soup; Ink: Jenni Bowlin; Buttons: Basic Grey (wood), Pebbles (green), unknown (orange)

Variation #1 - I had a bunch of small photos, more than for one page, so I stretched the sketch into a two-page 8.5x11 layout. Aside from that, I kept the design almost identical to the sketch.

“Lingering at the Falls” by Sue Althouse
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart); Alphabet: American Crafts Thickers; Inks, Mists: Creative Memories (Brown Chalking Ink), Mister Huey's (Clay Mist); Tools: Fiskars Circle Punches, Nestabilities Large Classic Inverted Scalloped Circles; Ribbon/Twine: My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart); Buttons: My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart)

Any sketch with banners and the opportunity to use a variety of patterned paper is a winner in my book!

Variation #1 - Ran the title down onto the side of the photo.

Variation #2 - Used spray ink on the background.

Variation #3 - Added patterned paper strips on three edges of the cardstock.

I love all the layouts....and I was also wondering how in the world were you able to print on your layout? 12x12 capable printer? If so which one are you using. Thanks =)

I use an Epson Stylus Photo 1400. It's a wide format printer that allows printing on 12 x 12. I don't know what I would do without it! :)
