One Sketch - Four Ways


Happy Monday Canaries - Lauren here! I hope that you all have a great week ahead of you! I've been away for a couple of weeks so this week I am back home and back into the swing of things (I also need to apologise for my photos this week - my camera was running out of batteries and there was bad light as it was cloudy, but the show must go on).

Every month here at Scrappy Canary we have a sketch challenge. January's sketch challenge is a great one and today I am using the new January Kits - the Embellishment Kit 'Be Mine' and the Pocket Life Kit 'Candy Heart' - to show you one sketch, four ways.

First up I created a traditional 12x12 scrapbook layout. In my interpretation of the sketch I used stitching for the line down the page and I then also stitched the title. I love how stitching can add an extra something to a layout.

In my interpretation of the sketch I decided to use the glassine bag that held the kit embellishments - crumpled it up and then flattened it out to an some extra dimension. How cute are the sequinned bows? I love them. I also speckled the layout with the Heidi Swapp Glitter Sticker Hearts and the pink enamel dots.

Next up I used the sketch two create two Pocket Life cards.

First up I created the title card for my week - Week 47. The Dear Lizzy alphabet stickers and the puffy stickers added great elements to the card, along with some extra dimension.

The 'dream a little bigger' cloud sticker is a great theme for the week - I think that we all need to take the time in our weeks to focus on your dreams. That's the beauty of pocket scrapbooking - we can track our dreams throughout the year.

The Dear Lizzy paper has great colours. Doesn't the background paper look like the sprinkles on a donut! Mmmmm, donuts!

The shipping tag from the embellishment kit was a great addition to the card too.

The flower cabochon is also a super cute addition!

I then created a photo card, where I turned the sketch on the side and used the papers and the one of the Project Life 'xoxo' Die Cut cards.

As the above traditional layout is an insert for week 47 I continued a similar theme. I included the hand-drawn journalling lines, along with the pink enamel dots - this will tie the insert with the rest of the layout.

Even though it's a boring green smoothie - I think I made it pretty fun!

Finally, I made a card for my brother-in-law's upcoming birthday. I am sure that when many of you first looked at this kit you thought it was super-girly, well I wanted to us this kit to make something masculine.

The blue star paper from the Pocket Life Kit was perfect - the navy adds a certain masculinity. Keeping with the 'space' theme I used one of the glitter banners and then added the cork 'good times' and stars. I also used kraft and white paper to mount the card on. I often use kraft paper in cards - it is really affective and adds a masculine element.

So there you have it - one sketch, four ways! Don't forget that you still have until the 5th of February to enter the January Sketch Challenge - visit the relevant blog post to find out more information and how to post your creations! I can't wait to see your takes on the sketch.

Have an amazing week Canaries! Lauren xx
