Club Got Sketch 6

Yesterday sketch 6 of Club Got Sketch was revealed. It's hard to believe that the class is already six weeks in, but I'm still keeping up with them even though we've been on holiday. Three more to go. With further ado here's my take on sketch 6:

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper + Die-Cuts: Cosmo Cricket (Garden Variety collection) |  Journaling Strip: Creative Café | Alphabet Stickers: Jillibean Soup | Border Punch: EK Success + Fiskars

Journaling: One day during the Summer holidays we went for a drive down the Mornington Peninsula. Our first stop was Sunnyridge Strawberry farm. The day was very hot, but the previous couple of days had been very wet. Armed with bags around our shoes, as the ground was so boggy, we filled our containers with giant vibrantly red strawberries. To cool down again, we had a delicious treat in the farm's café, with strawberries of course!

After finishing the layout I had mixed feelings about it. I felt it was a little too busy, but the colours went well. Too late to change anything now. Time to put it in my album and move onto the next layout.

Tomorrow it's back to school after a two and a half week break. We're ready for it!

Club Sketch 4 & 5

Happy Easter everyone! Two weeks ago our Fall break started, of which we spent a week away visiting the sunshine. Meanwhile Club Got Sketch has been continuing as normal. Both layouts for sketch 4 and 5 I submitted to Valerie before we left. All that rests me to do is to post them here.

For both layouts I used older papers. Papers I've had for a while and one collection I had not even touched. This is my layout for sketch 4. These pictures were almost taken one year ago.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper, Letter Stickers + Die-Cut Shapes: Basic Grey (Wisteria Collection) | Border Punch: Martha Stewart + Stampin'Up | Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Tea Dye Duo)

Journaling: You are a little super model. When you were wearing your new Winter outfit for the first time, you loved showing it off in front of the camera. And the purple boots you already had, matched perfectly.

On my second layout I used Scenic Route's last collection, before they folded the company. The collection is called Garden Grove. I have used these papers before, but only on cards. They have some gorgeous colours in this collection. I have to give Rebecca credit for the pinwheel, as she came up with the idea.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: Scenic Route (Garden Grove Collection) | Buttons: Basic Grey + My Mind's Eye | Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts | Brad | Border Punch: Stampin'Up

Journaling reads: During the long weekend we went and visited Chris and Stephen's beach house. Before having our lunch we drove down to Aireys Inlet for a walk along the beautiful coast. It was quite breezy, but nonetheless very enjoyable. The fresh air sure made us hungry.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. We have another two days off, due to Easter and ANZAC Day.

The Other Half

The other day I posted the one photo that I had edited after my Jinkyart photography retreat. Since only one of these two gorgeous girls was full in the photo, I thought it would only be fair to share the other in full too.

Mum left me a comment on the previous post. I'm so pleased to hear you liked it. If you would like you can download the originals here and here.

Wishing everyone a fabulous weekend.

Club Got Sketch: Sketch 3

Sketch 3 has already been up at Club Got Sketch since Monday, but I'm still recovering from my photography retreat I went to this past weekend. It was a great weekend for inspiration and creativity. The weather was beautiful and I was surrounded by amazing people. Unfortunately I didn't come home with many great photos, but that wasn't totally the objective anyway. So far, I've only edited one photo...

Aren't they gorgeous? We had some amazing models to shoot over the whole weekend.

Back to sketch 3. It was another fabulous multi photo sketch. I took forever to decide what pictures to use, but in the end chose the ones from the day Rebecca's braces came off.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics | Patterned Paper: Echo Park, Amy Butler for K&Co., Creative Café and Scenic Route | Alphabet Stickers: American Crafts | Ribbon: Paperchase | Corner Rounder: Zutter | Punches: Martha Stewart, Paper Shapers | Die: Spellbinder Nestabilities (Scalloped Circles) | Border Punch: Fiskars | Marker: ZIG | Tag | Pinking Scissors | Scalloped Scissors: Fiskars | Rhinestones: KaiserCraft | Computer Font: Palatino

This was another layout where I used a lot of different manufacturers. The aim was to find the right papers to go with the photos.

Thanks for stopping by.
