Sketch Something....

The new challenge is posted over at Stamp Something. This week it's to sketch something. Our guest designer for the week is Katharina Frei, I'm sure most of you know who she is since she's amazing, but if not check out her blog to see all her sketches, tutorials and unbelieveable work. I think that's the greatest thing about blogging, Katharina lives in Switzerland and we never would have "met" without our blogs!
Anyway the sketch was great, very challenging for me since it contained circles and I'm a rectangle girl:) So I decided to do a scrapbook page to show people who visited the stamp something that that would be great for this challenge too!
This is an 8x8 page. I used my coluzzle for the circles and a carousel note for the scalloped circle.
The rectangle piece of textured blush blossom is fot the title, and the circular blush blossom is for the photo. The guava scalloped circle is for journaling. The river rock and BB circles are on dimensionals. And I did some faux stitching with my white gel pen.
I thought it wwould be a great page for a tropical vacation or wedding. If you have the scallop circle nestabilities you could make everything smaller and turn it into a card. You could add the flower to the circle center like Cindy's card(see design team samples.) Hope you play along, what a fun sketch!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!



Super cute layout Erin! The stitching is so fun.

Love love love it! It's so soft and pretty. I love how you used the carousel note too. All the details are amazing, the stitching, ribbon, pearls, everything! Just beautiful! :)


I love your pretty layout and it is great to see how the sketch adapts for scrapping. Great idea to use the scalloped note, and the faux stitching is fabulous!


this sketch looks great as a LO - love the colors you used!


Great page Erin! I didn't even think to use the sketch for an SB page, but it looks awesome! I LOVE it! TFS!


A terrific LO Erin! A lot of people transform my sketches into Scrapbook pages and this is always so exciting! Thanks again for your kind words about my work and for giving me the opportunity to be your first guest designer :)

I love the use of the carousel note. Also how the faux stitching picks up the stitching on the ribbon. Very nice!
