Sunday Sketch with Emma

Hi friends!  Emma here with this week's Sunday Sketch.  Today's sketch is super fun and features one of my favourite (and possibly one of the easiest) shapes to incorporate onto a layout - hearts!  Hearts are everywhere and I love them!  Here's our super sketch for today:

I used the Add-on kit mostly for my page but I added a few pieces from the other kits too (that heart paperclip from the Pocket Life kit is a perfect match for this sketch!).  Here's my layout:

As you can see, I've pretty much kept true to the sketch but moved a few elements around and added a couple extra pieces (corner piece on the top RHS and journaling at the bottom LHS).

I used my trusty scissors to cut heart shapes, they're easy enough to do and I cut extra's from a few patterns so I could layer and stitch them together, to add a little more dimension ;).  The Summer Lights papers in the Add-on kits are so gorgeous, love the bright, fun colours.

My journaling is printed onto one of the Pocket Life 3x4 cards.  To make sure the journaling lined up I took a photo of the card with my phone, dropped the image into Photoshop and typed my journaling on the lines (on a new layer) then ran the card through my printer (without the image of the card) and boom!  Done ;)

I love word/phrase stickers, they're such a perfect way to add extra sentiments to your layouts (same could be said for stamps, but stickers are even easier...for me!).  I've used the Beautiful Day Tiny Word Stickers which are included in the Add-on kit.

To add a bit more contrast (the yellow) I used some of the sequins from the Grace Box and one of the chipboard pieces out of the Pocket Life (half tucked underneath my photo so only the yellow shows).

I really love how this one came together, using the sketch meant it was a relatively quick and easy one for me to do create! (Although everything I create is ever really "quick", but if I can finish a layout in under an hour I consider that a huge win, hah!  This came close to that thanks to the sketch!)

Now it's your turn! To play along with this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge, create a layout based off of today's sketch, upload it to the gallery with today's date (23/7) in the title, and you are in for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the CTK Store!

Thanks, Em xo
