Sketch #299 for Creative Scrappers and Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hey everyone, I'm here today sharing a new layout using the beautiful Love Always collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

This layout is for the Creative Scrappers sketch challenge #299 which you can see below. Cocoa Vanilla are the sponsors for this months challenge and each of us on the team have created a layout based on this fun sketch using the CVS products. The style and layout of the sketch itself is quite different to a design I may gravitate towards so I had to be a little creative when creating my layout for this.

I kept the design of the four photos, but instead of the larger size portrait style photos I chose to use four smaller ones. I matted each photo on some of the patterned papers in the collection. One of the photos in the four though I wanted to stand out a little more than the others, so I matted that on a different patterned paper, added a doily behind it and mounted it to the page with foam tape. I adhered them in a scattered horizontal formation to add a little interest to them.

The chipboard tabs, stickers and puffy stickers add a nice little detail to the layers. I used multiple layers of patterned paper like the sketch on this layout. To add a little detail to each layer I added some machine stitching to the edges.

Like the sketch I have an embellishment cluster to the left of the photos, the right of the photos and the bottom right of the page. Instead of using stars I have mainly used floral embellishments from the collection. I used sequins as the circle element to the sketch which add a nice finishing touch to each cluster.

I decided that I wanted to swap the placement of the title and the journalling. I did this because I felt the space under the smaller photos needed to be filled with my story rather than the sticker I had selected to use as a title.

For something different I used the stickers to act as the title on my page. This formed the bottom right cluster in the sketch and combines a lot of different layers of embellishments. I used die cuts, stickers and veneer. I added the sequins and also one of the floral resins from the Bits & Pieces pack.

I wanted to still add a star element to my page seeing as though the sketch featured it. So I decided to use a large Star cut file shape to back with a patterned paper and to make it a main part in the design of the page. I just loved how it turned out!
