Once Upon A Time

I"m up on the Crafty Maven Getaway channel today for Sketch It Out Thursday. The timing was perfect because I have been wanting to play with Creative Scrappers sketch #296 by Kristine Davidson and the cut file by Nicole Nowosad
 The mood board this week is just lovely! The colors remind me of sherbet and I knew that my Felicity Jane kit would be perfect for this mood board. I was inspired by the colors and the lines that were made with the blending of the colors. I thought that the sketch and cut file made a great pairing with it and I am thrilled with the way that it turned out.
I chose to document these character cups that my kids used so many years ago. I've been trying to clean up and reduce the clutter in the house and I told my husband that I would get rid of the cups only after I had taken a photo. I remember drinking out of cartoon character glass jars that jelly used to come in. I loved those glasses, and my kids loved theirs as well.

I stitched in between the paper layers for a bit of added texture and interest. The vellum shapes are so pretty and may be my favorite embellishment from the kit.

I chose to type my journaling so that it would be incorporated into the layout design. The sketch calls for a journaling box under the photo. I knew that my journaling would not take up that much room and that I wanted to incorporate the journaling with the title. It just made sense to place it under the title. 

 The puffy stickers in this FJ kit are so incredibly sweet!!! I want to stretch these puffy alphas so that I can make lots of cute titles with this kit. I pulled in some Elle's Studio alphas to conserve the letters plus, I really like the look of mixed fonts in my titles.

 I am a sucker for pre-made embellishments. Time is precious and I love to get the most out of my scrap time. However, there is something immensely satisfying to me to create an embellishment cluster (or in this case tag) from items that you have and make it look like something that you would buy. I love the way that this tag came together.

I have a process video if you'd like to take a closer peek. Thanks so much and I hope that this layout inspires you to get sketchy :)
