Hi Lily Bee fans! Christine here, along with Patricia, showing you another take on our monthly layout and card sketch challenges! You can see the original May layout sketch post here, and the card sketch post here. Since our focus this week is on chipboard embellishments, Patricia and I have created projects that feature Liy Bee chipboard stickers. If you have not yet played along with this month's sketch challenges, you still have time to link up!
Here is our May layout sketch.
Here's Patricia's layout using the sketch.
Supplies: Sweet Shoppe (Cotton Candy Paper, Strawberries and Cream Paper, Letter Stickers, Chipboard Stickers), Pinwheel (Flower Box Paper, Flip Flops Paper, Label Stickers, Chipboard Stickers), Destination (80 Days Paper, Boarding Pass Paper, Landmark Paper, Luggage Paper, Atlas Paper, Souvenier Paper, Bon Voyage Paper, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers, Chipboard Stickers)
Patricia says, "I used the sketch by turning it and cutting a piece of cardstock to mask and mist squares onto the background. Then I cut smaller squares from pattern paper to pop dot over them. I wanted to be able to embellish around the squares with the chipboard pieces. So I added pieces under the photo, pointing to the photo, and up towards the top of the misted squares. All leading your eye back down to the photo. I made this piece a little artsy because of our high school jazz band, and the chipboard word pieces fit perfectly for the theme."
I absolutely adore Patricia's interpretation of the layout sketch, and all the details she included!
Here is our May card sketch again.
My friend's birthday was this past week, so I used the sketch to make her a birthday card!
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection (Lemonade Stand paper, Picnic Basket paper, Flower Box paper, 6x6 Tiny Tablet paper pad, Chipboard Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers)
My interpretation of the card sketch was pretty straight-forward. Instead of two circle embellishments on top, I used a bigger flower chipboard sticker to anchor the scallop strip across the top.
The sentiment strip on the bottom left is anchored by a stack of chipboard embellishments, including a button tied up with twine.
We'd love to have you join us in both the layout and card sketch challenges for May! How will you interpret the sketches?
