Let's Celebrate - Sketch # by Caroli Schulz

Hello everybody! Caroli here and today I want to show my take of this great Sketch #307.


I love all the stripes in this sketch and also the fact that it includes 3 photos, I love layouts with several photos. Here is my take:

I used Yankee Doodle collection by Doodlebug Design and 3 pics of last year's Independence Day celebration. It's great that my country, Chile, has same patriotic colors as the US, all patriotic collections fit perfectly for my patriotic photos :)

As you can see, us Chilean people take independence day celebrations seriously, lots of yummy food and kids get dressed in some traditional outfits.

Discovery - Anne Keller

Hello, Anne here today. Finally I can show you my take on the actual sketch.

This month the sketch is full of stripes. I experimented a little bit with an alternative without paper stripes.

Instead of a big paper in the background I played with some acrylic paint - mostly white with some pops of pink and yellow. Then I arranged my square photos with some layering on it. One square photo was replaced with the journaling printed on vellum.

Then I created the stripy look. I reduced the length of the stripes and clustered them a little bit. That turned out just the way I want it to - light and bright.

I used a phrase stamp to create some stripes and combined it with some stickers and sequins.

I hope I could inspire you to play along with us. There are a few days left to scrap a layout and link it up here so you have a chance to win the gorgeous kit of our Sponsor Altenew. Please feel free to show your work also on Instagram and tag us there @creativescrappers and #creatingwithsketches #cssketch307. We love to discover your take on the sketch.

Awesome dude Sketch#307

Hey all! Sarah here this morning to share with you my take on Sketch #307

This sketch was fun for me. I did go through and do a few things different, like only doing 2 photos instead of 3,I went a little bigger with some of the strips and instead of just strips I decided to add some cut-files and back them with some great paper from Crate papers, Cool kid collection.

I did a large, blocked area like in the sketch, behind my photos. I only had 2 photos that I wanted to use so I went through my ephemera pack for this collection and the chipboard sheet and pulled things out that I wanted to use. I liked the goofy Wild thing tag, with my boy and me being goofy and him having his little Mohawk, I thought it was appropriate lol. So thats where I started. Then I moved on to backing my cut-files and laying them down where I wanted them. I wanted to add some more dimension, so I popped the orange cut-file strip up on 3D adhesive. Then I moved on to adding my embellishments.

All those little things I had collected in the beginning, I started playing with and layering them where it showed the clusters in the sketch, But instead of different sized stars, I used the cool chipboard camera and some little ephemera pieces and then added a few of the little sequin stars from the collection.

My little guy isn't so little anymore, so I wanted to add this ruler as on of the strips, kind of marking the fact that hes growing up and getting bigger. Then I popped down my little, Awesome dude title and a few more sequin stars around and was done. I was surprised at myself, not using splatters anywhere, but I thought it might just be to busy with them. lol. 
I hope you play along with us and have fun with it!

My fav' By Christine Beuzit - Sktech #307

Hello Creatives,
Here I am with Sketch #307!
I decided to use only one photo and to place it in the middle.
I also decideD that I would work on my background by creating a diagonal starting from the stars of the sketch. So I used texture paste, stamps and a stickers both at the bottom left-hand  and top right-hand corners of my page. That creates a symetry and the stars draw the attention to the central photo which I have framed.

 I really love those giant cork stars!!!

Then I added some others stamps on the page, stuck a few embellishments ant that was it!
As usual, the sketch really makes it all, no need to have tons of element to make your picture stand out!

As usual, here are some sneaks!

Can't wait to discover your creations!
Love from France
