Hello everyone, and welcome to the blog for another Saturday Sketch!
Let’s have a look at the rules:
The rules: Each Saturday every month a new sketch and inspirational layouts will be posted here on the blog. From these 3-5 sketches (depending on how many Saturday’s there are), you have that many chances to create a layout of your own and upload it to any gallery of your choice, or in a blog post. Once done, link your layout into the comments section of the appropriate sketch blog post and you’re entry is complete! Find FULL terms and conditions here.
The deadline: Comments with linked layout entries for each monthly sketch challenge will close on the last day of that month at 11.59 (Australian Eastern Standard Time UTC +10/Daylight Savings Time UTC +11)
The prize: 1st PLACE: One of Kaisercraft’s new collections (valued at approximately $50). 2nd PLACE: A Kaisercraft scrap pack (including new products) valued at approximately $30.
Here is the layout that our Saturday Sketch is based on. It was made by Melissa Kennedy who is one of our in house designers. It’s a double layout so hopefully it will challenge you all to have a go!

“The circles were run through the embossing folder and then lightly sanded to bring out the white core of the paper.
(This is my favorite technique) I applied red distress ink on the corner of the large photo and then ran the photo through an embossing folder over the distressed area only. I sanded the picture lightly on the embossed area to reveal the flourish. This helps to connect the picture and the circle embellishments with the same flourish motif.
The lollipop flowers were created by punching them out with a hand punch in various sizes of circles and scalloped circles, inked the edges and then distressed the edges with scissors. Don’t be afraid if you tear the paper a little, that adds to the distressed look. I then used a ball tip tool and foam pad, and pressed and creased the edges to give the irregular raised scalloped edges and then layered the flower offset.
I created the leaves of the flowers using twine. The trick here is to use a glue with a metal tip attachment for a very very fine line of glue. I basically drew with the glue tip and then applied the twine on top.”
