Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global September 2022 blog hop. This months theme is a sketch. I love a good sketch and can’t wait to see everyones take on the beautiful sketch that Courtenay designed for us.
As part of the Scrapbooking Global design team we participate in a monthly blog hop and challenges but anyone can join in if they’d like. We’d love to have you join us! Be sure to join the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Facebook Group so you know when the sign up starts for our next hop.
I love so much about this sketch – the circular element, the scallop border the positioning on the layout and the fun way that patterned paper was used. It’s funny though because I didn’t really incorporate any of those elements that I love on the sketch on my layout. But that’s the great thing about a sketch – it’s a starting point and open to interpretation.
Let’s take a look…
You can definitely see that the layout was inspired by the sketch. I challenged myself to use the August Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin kit for my layout. This kit is absolutely stunning. Definitely one of my favourites. For anyone who may have missed out, there’s been some talk about it becoming a kit so watch for more details on that.
I filmed a video showing you how I used the contents of the kit to create the layout. You’ll find it linked below. Almost everything I used is from the kit with the exception of the 12″x12″ base and some black card stock. Even the tissue paper I used as the ruffle is from the kit!
Although this Paper Pumpkin kit is no longer available at the moment, consider pinning this layout if you love it so that you can use it for inspiration when the kit becomes available. For a full supply list, check the shopping list below. If you live in Canada and would like to order any of the supplies I’d love for you to shop my online store.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to head on over to Elaine Wright’s blog to see what she created. Enjoy hopping along to see the beautiful projects that everyone else created!
Until next time,
