For the last two years I’ve had fun playing along with Project 12 from Scrapbook & Cards Today. I just read that they’re changing things up a bit for 2012 & won’t be providing new sketches this year. That’s okay. One, I’m still catching up on 2011(shocker, I know!), and two, I have so many great sketches in my collection from both Sketch Support and Sketches for Scrapbooking that I’ll think I’ll be fine.
Supplies (all from my November GTKC) – patterned paper: American Crafts, Bella Blvd., Simple Stories, My Mind’s Eye, Anthologie; layered stickers: Amy Tan for American Crafts; dots: unknown (in my kit); letter stickers: Lush by My Mind’s Eye; paper edger punch: EK Success
The first change I made (which I made when I used this sketch last Nov as well) was to increase the number of photos by adding a second row. I do this a lot.
I also lifted a technique from Davinie Fiero that I’ve used a few times: mix up the bottom layers of paper by using two different patterns. It adds a definite punch of color & some whimsy. Love that.
Another quick change I made was to use the camera & typewriter elements instead of birds & leaves. I actually had birds & leaves in my kit to use, but I love that camera & the typewriter fits the theme as well: photography & document.
The “delightful goodness” sticker is probably supposed to be a brad or button or something, but I liked the extra bit of color it added over here.
