Layouts Saturday Sketches

Saturday Sketch July #3

July 20, 2013


Welcome to another Saturday Sketch,

For those who haven’t played along before, here are 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 $80). 2nd PLACE: A Kaisercraft scrap pack (including new products) valued at approximately $50. Winners will be announced at the beginning of August.

Here is the Layout from the lovely Danielle Krivan that today’s sketch sketch is based on:

Today we have the super talented Joanne Bain and Trudi Harrison from our Contributing Design Team playing along with the sketch. Joanne has created her interpretation with the Sweet Pea collection and Trudi with the Holly Bright Collection

“Love” layout by Joanne Bain




Kaisercraft Materials Used – Sweet Pea Collection – P1229 Petite, P1235 Sassy, P1236 Pretty, PP908 Sweet Pea Paper Pad, CT762 Sweet Pea Collectables, SS190 Sweet Pea Sticker Sheet, SB703 Aqua Rhinestones & RB908 Dreams Rub Ons.

Joanne says ” I rotated the sketch to allow for the use of a landscape photograph. I made the base paper layer longer and thinner and added banner bottoms. As always added extras to make the sketch my own.”

    Oh my! What a great sketch. I have been seeing quite a few layouts like this lately with multiple repeated shapes in the background and love how effective it looks – such a great way to show off the variety of papers that come with each collection. This one is going to the top of the list! (Although, I am fast running out of time!)

    Thanks Sandra

    This is a great sketch. I haven’t seen one like, it one I definitely want to try. If I cannot finish a layout in time, I will still use this sketch. Love Danielle’s,
    Joanne’s and Trudi’s Layouts. This Saturday my favourite is Trudi’s “Merry and
    Bright ” Layout. All of them however are exceptional.
