August Layout Sketch

Happy Thursday everyone! Chelsea here sharing a layout using the August layout sketch by Bev.

The products I used for this layout are:

Here’s the sketch:


Here’s my layout:


To start this layout, I picked my background paper and laid my pictures down to figure out what to do next. I didn’t know which way I wanted to take the sketch, but ended up putting a piece of 12×4 paper to the left to mimic the mixed media shown in the sketch. And to add in more color, I used one of the very colorful border stickers from the Elements sheet.


In the sketch, there are three embellishment clusters, so I played around with where to put them to change the sketch up a bit. I went with a ton of phrase stickers to the right of my photo, to point out how much of a great relaxing day we had flying kites. Then placed a chipboard arrow, with a brad in the middle, under the stickers.


For my title, I used only alphas from the Alphabet Stickers sheet. One is a bright red tile sticker, and the other is a larger skinny and colorful font, which brings out the colors from the rest of the layout.  Then placed a flair badge and label sticker with a small brad on top.


For my last cluster, I went with a label sticker with a cute saying on it, and of course put it up on pop dots, with a large brad tucked under the top left end.

I just love how colorful and simple this layout turned out.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
