October Scrapbooking Add-on kit, the Life Crafted "Flourish" kit, and the This Is Life "Ready for This" stamp.
I loved the design of the sketch and followed it pretty closely, with only a few minor changes. I chose to convert the sketch from a 12x12 layout to a Life Crafted album layout. Instead of two smaller photos, I chose to use one larger portrait photo. I followed the sketch and added some layers behind the photo using several ephemera pieces from the Add-on kit. I also added a fussy cut floral, a few ephemera die-cuts, and some gold puffy leaf stickers around the photo. The vintage lace trim from the Add-on kit was perfect to add to the ephemera tag.
I typed my journaling and added it in strips below the photo. I also added some pink tiny word stickers to the edge of the photo, following the placement of the labels from the sketch.
On the right side of the layout, I trimmed a ledger patterned paper to fit as a full page in the album. I created the title using a gold puffy word sticker and the Soft Mint Alphabet stickers, both from the Add-on kit. I also used some pale pink alpha stickers from a previous Life Crafted kit. I added some stamping to both pages of the spread using the "Ready for This" stamp and the LC kit stamp. A trimmed ephemera tag was the perfect touch below the title. To finish off the layout, I added a bit of machine stitching using black thread to several areas around the spread.
I love how this Life Crafted layout turned out using this month's gorgeous kits! I hope you will join in on this sketch challenge and share your layouts with us on the CTK Fan Facebook page or on Instagram using the hashtag #citrustwistkits. I will see you again soon!
