It’s sketch week! I love sketch week! I was a little stumped at first. I decided to go through my paper stash, hoping for an idea. Then I stumbled on a paper pack that I bought a couple of years back at the Scrapbook Expo.
This paper pack from Simple Stories contains 24 double sided 6 x 6″ papers. I decided to use it because it’s already filled with color coordinated paper! So this week the paper itself created the IDEA! It also made it easy and fast! My two favorite things!
Step 1: I chose the sort of Chevron stripe paper for the backing paper. I trimmed 1/8″ off of all 4 sides so there would be a 1/8″ white border when this layer is adhered to the base card. I cut the smaller 3 squares with the red polka dot and the navy polka dot from this pack, and cut the blue from solid light blue cardstock so the sentiment would stand out. I used Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1118 – Stitched Squaress
I used the 5th die from smallest or the largest. It’s a 9 die set.
Step 2: Make a base card by cutting a 12 x 12 pc. of white cardstock in half. Score one half at 6″. Fold over for a “tent fold” card. Then adhere the backing layer and 3 squares as shown:
Step 3: I used this set of word dies from Diamond Press for the “Hello”:
I cut it 4 times: navy, white, red and yellow cardstock. I offset them all together just a little. Then adhered the sentiment on top of the squares. I KNOW! 3 STEPS AND YOUR DONE!
I love you all that took the time to stop by. I hope you will give this months sketch a try!
