Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge #7

Good morning! Today I am up on the Paper Bakery blog with our new sketch for Sketch Challenge #7. This sketch is a bit more specific than what I normally create, but I hope you enjoy it all the same. I specifically incorporated some of the cut file images from the Everyday Polaroids FREE cut file that we shared with you this month. You could of course, easily replace the "today" Polaroid with another photo or a journaling block and the "star geotag" with another type of embellishment. No matter how you interpret it, remember to just have fun and enjoy the creative process!

This is my layout based on the sketch. I used the free cut files as embellishments for my photo and then placed the journaling above and below the photo.

I added some hand doodling to further enhancement all the frames and I had to use that super cool sequin arrow by Heidi Swapp!!! Another fun detail is that I used the vintage sheet of gin rules that was included in the June Scrapbook Kit as a piece of patterned paper and the base for my photos and other embellishments.

The die cuts were initially cut from white cardstock, but I didn't want them white once I started to add them to my layout so I misted them yellow using Heidi Swapp Colorshine.  I then cut out some extra stars from the American Crafts Glitter Paper and layered them on the die cuts and around my title for added color and dimension.

Last but not least, I decorated one of the die cut stars with one of the Paper Bakery Flair from the exclusive American Crafts Flair set.
