Sketch Challenge

I love the challenges with sketch. Sketch are very inspiring, they can be used in many ways. I turned my composition, I used a larger amount of tags and I focused them closer photos. for variety, I used a mist of white background in different colors. I’m very curious of your work!



Do you love white space? How about basic scrapbooking supplies, like tags? If you answered yes, then this month’s Pretty Little Studio sketch is for you! Based on a layout by design team member Malika Kelly, this sketch will have you scrapping a beautiful layout in no time.

As with all good sketches, there is a little room for interpretation. Instead of tags, I chose to use journaling cards and die-cuts:


I used a mini instagram photo of my 6 month old baby girl napping on me as the inspiration for my page. The Baby Claire line could not have been more perfect! To follow the sketch, I stacked the journaling cards and die-cuts so that my journaling could read from top to bottom, from card to card.


In the title space, I used this Pretty Little Studio die-cut and placed it between cards, rather than on one like the sketch calls for. I also adhered it to my layout with foam adhesive so that the shadow created would help it pop off the white cardstock.


I embellished with flair, confetti and a little bit of mist.


I absolutely loved this sketch and am certain I will refer to it again. I’m sure you’ll love it, too! Happy scrapping!

Hi, Lisa here.  For this month’s sketch, I was a little stumped at first.  How to make one of my lumpy bumpy layouts with just four tags?  Well, I decided to just use the sketch as my starting point. And when I say “decided” what I mean is,  that’s what happened, because I rarely plan things before I start a page.  I knew I wanted to turn the sketch so I did, and I laid my four tags down and just went from there.


A look at the embellishment cluster on the bottom…I know I’ve said it before but I just love how well all of Pretty Little Studio’s lines work together.  This layout is a mash-up of Nature Walk and Marigold and they really work so well together!!


And the tags at the top.  I tucked the last tag into a vellum bag to soften up the typing…

“Sketches are a wonderful way to get the creative process started.  Using the Silly Monkey collection I have layered all of my papers, journal cards and tags down the right hand side of the page as shown on the sketch.  From there I added lots of other interest from the left side and the bottom, as I am not one to have a lot of white space.  I chose the turquoise colour out of the collection with a hint of brown, grey and red, I actually quite like this colour combination.  I added a monkey Shipping tag down the bottom to tie in with the shipping tags of the sketch and I  just had to add in the Silly Mango diecut to the top of my page, he is sooo cute.  Lots of flags, tags and a flair were also added to my layers.”
