“Maple Grove Days Parade” by Jennifer Larson 
Supply listCardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Crate Paper, American Crafts, Kesi' Art, Echo Park; Stickers: Studio Calico, Jenni Bowlin, Crate Paper; Twine: Stampin' Up!; Floss: DMC; Punches: EK Success; Gems: Queen & Co.; Other: Button, twine, machine thread, pen

Variation #1- I used photos I had on hand rather than printing them specially sized, so I had to adjust the layout of the photos a bit, especially on the right side.

Variation #2- I moved the journaling so that the letter stickers would be more visible.

Variation #3- Rather than hand stitching around an element on the bottom, I hand stitched a star near the title to draw attention to it.

"Table For Six" by Janette Kincaid

Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: BoBunny; Corrugated Alpha: Jillibean Soup; Letter Stickers: Making Memories, Cosmo Cricket; Corrugated arrow: Prima; Red Hemp String: Martha Stewart; Floss: DMC; Journal Pen: Zig; Ink: Color Box; Paint: Craft Smart; Punches: Marvy, Stampin’ Up; Adhesive: Glue Arts, Helmar; Unknown: buttons, brads, mesh, foamcore, sanding block

Part of me wonders if I should have used a coloured cardstock rather than the white for the background of this layout but when I tried a handful of coordinates, it didn’t feel as ‘right’ as the white. I light how light and airy the layout feels.

Variation #1 - I changed up the sizes and orientation of the photos on the right side page and used a total of four rather than the six the sketch called for.

Variation #2 – I used a torn notebook edge punch on the thin horizontal strips of paper, adding a mirrored strip on the bottom.

Variation #3 – I used the same patterned paper for the background on both pages.

Variation #4 – Rather than taking the time to stitch on my layout, I used a thicker hemp string to add a splash of colour.

Variation #5 – I added more circles and less stars to the bottom of the layout, the varied size of circles adds interest and the buttons, brads and pop dotted paper adds depth.

Variation #6 – I flipped the location of the title and the journaling.

Variation #7 – I added the corrugated arrow for additional detail and interest.

"In Your Face Chewy" by Allison Davis
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: October Afternoon; Stickers, die cuts, and flashcard: October Afternoon; Letter stickers: October Afternoon; Corrugated alphabet: Jillibean Soup; Heart punch: Martha Stewart

Variation #1 - The photos I really wanted to use with this sketch didn't allow much room for cropping for the photos on the right page. I didn't want to miss out on using my favorite pictures so I included an extra photo on the left page.

Variation #2 - On the right page I used another 4 x 6" photo in place of two of the 3 x 4" photos.

Variation #3 - I kept two of the 2 x 2" photos the same size but had to opt for a larger 2-1/2 x 2-1/2" photo for one of them. It just wasn't possible to crop it down any smaller.

Variation #4 - I didn't use stars along the bottom. In fact I didn't include anything along the bottom other than a scallop strip. I also included an "ABC" strip along the top.

Variation #5 - I used hearts, flags/banners, a flashcard and a dog sticker in place of the star embellishments on the sketch.

Here's a closer look at some details:

Love the layout. What ink brand and color did you use to ink all the edges? Also, could you please start including this in your supplies list?
