Two-page Sketch #26

"Bug Catcher to the Rescue" by Lynette Jacobs
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Printed papers: Echo Park (Victoria Gardens); Flowers: Prima, American Craft; Brads: My Mind's Eye; Pearls: Kaisercraft; Bling: Prima; Punches: Martha Stewart; Alphabets: American Crafts, Paper Trunk, Basic Grey; Other: Doilies.

Variation #1: I replaced the thin strip at the top with the butterfly punched strip.

Variation #2: I cut my top printed paper squares to 3.75 x 2.75 and backed it with a 12 x 4 strip.

Variation #3: I used only 4 x 6 photos.

Variation #4: I replaced the thin strip at the bottom with a swirly doilies punched strip.

Here is a closer look at some of the details:

“All Ears” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: Amercian Crafts; patterned paper, buttons, gems, felt, stickers: Queen & Co.; ink: Clearsnap; word stickers: EchoPark, Creative Imaginations; brad: My Mind’s Eye; border punch: Fiskars

Variation #1 - My layout is based off of the left side of the sketch, which I followed almost exactly.

Variation #2 - I made each of the rectangle panels flip open, where I was able to include four more photos, journaling, and extra embellishments. I also included some memorabilia from our day at Disneyland—the Photopass card, Autopia driver’s license, and a gift card (don’t worry—it’s empty).

I hid these photos under the panels rather than making a two-page layout because these were the last of the pictures I had printed from this trip and they were all kind of random. Hiding them allowed me to include them instead of keeping them in the leftover photo pile.

"Fun Times" by Christine Chain
Supplies - patterned paper:My Mind's Eye (Sweet Caroline), Basic Grey, Echo Park, Cosmo Cricket; letter stickers: American Crafts (Thickers), Authentique; chipboard embellishments: Bella Blvd; journaling spot: My Mind's Eye; ink: Tsukineko

Variation #1: I really toned down most of the embellishments. The patterned paper was busy enough that I didn't want to add too much! I did keep a few of the "label" spots. I also omitted the "word" and just kept my title on the left.

Variation #2: For my journaling block, I cut a calendar journaling spot in half (and kept the rest to use later), inked the edges, and overlapped two of the areas.
