Two-page Sketch #28

"BBQ" by Suzanna Lee 
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper: Pink Paislee; Tickets: Jenni Bowlin, Maya Road; Tags: Prims, Jenni Bowlin; Die Cuts: CosmoCricket (doily), Maya Road (owl); Clip: Basic Grey; Flowers: Prima, Buzz and Bloom; Brad and Chipboard: My Minds Eye; Bling: Bella Boulevard

Variation 1: I omitted the smaller pictures. I typically crop and edit all my pictures so finding anything that I can cut that small is always a challenge for me. Instead of pictures, I used embellishments in those spots.

Variation 2: My title and journaling are flip flopped. I also opted to handstitch around the title/journaling block.

Variation 3: No stars along the bottom but I did use bling instead.

"Sneak Attack" by Michele Edwards 
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Basic Grey; Embellishments: Paw prints and collar - Jolees, Flags - Bella Blvd; Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook); Flower Brads: unknown: Ink: Tim Holz: Grass: Cut with Die-namics

I love this sketch! I stuck to the sketch except for a few minor variations.


1. I narrowed the background blocks by an inch, to create a white border all around the layout.

2. I combined the two 4x6 photos into one 4x8 on the left page.

3. Instead of stars, I used grass die cuts and inserted flower brads randomly across the bottom.

"Kindy Concert" by Suzanna Lee 
Supply List - Cardstock: Coredinations; Patterned paper and die cuts: Basic Grey; Letter stickers: American Crafts, Websters; Wooden Frame: Kaiser Crafts; Bling: Recollections; Banner: Heidi Swapp; Trim: Maya Road

Variation 1: I didn't use the smaller size pictures, again.

Variation 2: The title and journaling are flip flopped. With the flowers on the patterned paper, the journaling worked better above with the title below.

Variation 3: Instead of the stars, I used the pleated Maya Road trim. I love how it creates the "curtain" of the stage that my daughter is performing on.

Variation 4: The banner above is an addition to the sketch. Just a little element to emphasize the fun and festivity of the occasion.
