Hello! I know I say this every month, but can you believe its time for our first reveal for May over at Lets Get Sketchy!!
This week we had a fabulous sketch by our leader Brenshevia. I especially loved the scattering of embellishments. I used my March Hip Kit - I got the Main Kit and first ever Project Life kit. I've been working on scrapping a small family holiday we took last September in a PL style, and this photo of Shaun and Brielle is one that I didn't include. It was perfect for her album on its own.
By the way, here in New Zealand "Holiday" means any vacation, not just Christmas :)
So excited to use my new Stampin' Up notebook edge punch! I've wanted this for a long time!
Love love the Crate Paper Craft Marked chipboard in the kit. I especially love the prize ribbons.
I added some machine stitching for extra interest, and in the case of that chevron sticker it holds it down in the centre because I popped up the sides with foam dots. Also can't get enough of my mini stapler! That journalling card is also a left over from the PL kit. I used the pink acrylic paint dauber from the previous month's colour add one to add some colour to the edge of the card - it was looking a bit stark!
And here is the sketch. I often find that sketches with lots of white space work really well with a patterned paper background.
Play along for a chance to win, and if you need some inspiration make sure you check out the other DT girl's fantastic layouts!
