Paper Bakery April Sketch #1 | My Take

So, as you may or may not know, I am now a member of The Paper Bakery Design Team! I am also their new Sketch Artist! I won't begin working with their kits until the May kit, but I have already started creating sketches for them. My first sketch has been revealed and it has been posted on The Paper Bakery Blog as their first April Challenge! I decided to play along even though I don't have a kit to create with yet and I wanted to share the layout I made with you today.



And guess what? This is the first time I have ever used a piece of flair on a layout!!! It was quite fun and I imagine I will be using a bit more of them on my upcoming layouts if you know what I mean!!!



I used a combination of American Crafts, My Minds Eye, Maya Road, and Elle's Studio to create my layout. Instead of using only 2 photos like the sketch, I decided to use 4 wallet size photos and grouped them in two's and then matted them to create 2 separate layers. Other than that change, I pretty much stuck with the original sketch.


I am always amazed at how people interpret my sketches and how different each layout looks! It is so inspiring!!! It also is making me very happy to have so many of you playing along with the sketch. Thank you!!! Also,  just a reminder that you still have a couple more days to enter for a chance to win a fun prize from The Paper Bakery!!!  Good luck and I can't wait to see what you create!!!
