March Sketch #2

The second sketch for March by Victoria Marie is here! Please head over the the April Lilli Facebook Group where you can share your take on the sketch. This month I’ll be giving away a Lovely Day collection kit I put together. You can do either sketch for a chance to win this kit or both for two entries!

This sketch is in 8.5X11 format, but you can easily stretch to a 12×12 or shrink to a size that works for you. Check out some layout inspiration below from the DT to see how they modified the sketch to work for them!

In Sandy’s layout above she decided to rotate the sketch and stretch it to 12×12.

Jennie also stretched her sketch to fit a 12×12 layout.

Odessa shrunk the sketch down to 6×8 and used only one photo.

So as you can see, there are lots of ways to use a sketch. It does not have to be exactly like the sketch! Don’t forget to join us in the April Lilli Facebook Group to share your take on this sketch and see other takes as well!

Lovely Day by Sandy

Sandy made this beautiful layout using this month’s featured line, Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy. She started with a black and white photo booth strip from Chuck E Cheese. Then she created all these yummy layers with a few papers from Lovely Day (the bottom of this post shows all the papers she used). In addition to stacking the papers to create layers, she also stitched on her bottom layers and tore one of her papers to create even more dimension. You can tell how much fun Sandy has making her layouts.

Sandy added her final touches with the embellishment pack “fine little day” brad. Then some stickers tucked into the top from the 6X12 sticker sheet and the chipboard phrase stickers. She added some acrylic and rubber words from her stash for her title and added the journaling underneath. She placed a few enamel shapes from her stash that matched perfectly with this line to finish it off. Don’t you just love the colors in this layout? You don’t have to use the “traditional” colors of a specific place or theme on your layouts at all. Use the colors you love and it will make your process so much more fun!

See more of Sandy’s work on her YouTube channel, where she does unboxing videos and scrapbook process videos that are so fun to watch! You can also find her on Instagram too!

Lovely Day with Odessa

This super-fun layout by Odessa shows how you can use a lot of color and still have a cohesive layout! One of the best ways to achieve this is to use products from one line, like Odessa did with the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day Collection. You can also choose a color scheme and mix and match you products. However, using one line will save you a lot of time since you know it’s already made to match for you!

Odessa talks about her color choices on her blog here!

The pink, yellow and mint from this line reinforce the fun colors of the photos on this layout. The gorgeous pink donut from above, the yummy-looking yellow popsicle and the mint in the outfit below really pulls all of this together!

Odessa used lots of puffy stickers and die cut ephemera from the collection. The brads are from the embellishment pack here. The hooray flag is a perfect touch for this card right?

She uses lots of papers from the collection to back her photos and journal pockets. Such a great way to show off the beautiful paper from the line!

The whole layout just flow doesn’t it? I LOVE the “mermaid hair, don’t care” on this card. How cool is this color?!? These alpha thickers are from the line too!

Odessa put a little flip through of her process on her YouTube channel (which I also embedded below). For more fun, colorful inspiration from Odessa visit her blog or follow her on Instagram!

Braver Than You Think by Simone

I can’t get over how in love with this layout I am! Simone used Lovely Day to create this STUNNING page. Read more of her take on this on her blog.

This background paper is my personal favorite from the whole line. Stamping this quote made a perfect title/journal combo. She used alpha stamps from Elle’s Studio. Can you believe how perfect she got her stamping? She needs to do a tutorial on just this for sure!

Simone has reignited the trend of fussy cutting your photos! Her last few layouts have been with a fussy-cut photo and the feedback she’s gotten has been amazing. If Simone has inspired you to fussy cut, please share your layouts in the Facebook Group!

Simone cut a strip of houses from this paper and adhered them to the bottom of the layout. With the combination of this background paper, it reminds me of a sunrise over a tiny town. The little puffy sticker birds in the tree and the hot air balloons in the background add to the real-life feel of this layout.

Simone reminded me to get myself in the scrapbooks, even if I don’t have a lot to say. Using a quote that you love or one that describes you can be enough. Don’t think people aren’t going to want to see you because they will! Find some photos of yourself to use or take some new ones. Your family will be SO glad you did!

You can find Simone here on her blog or watch some of her process videos on her YouTube (she also has on unboxing video of this line on her channel). She is very active on Instagram too!

New News!

Exciting news! Victoria Marie will be working with the shop to create sketches for us! You guys, If you don’t know Victoria, she is an amazing scrapbooker and an amazing teacher. I love her classes, especially Layering Like a Boss. I first found Victoria on YouTube and have been in love with her work ever since. If you haven’t seen her videos yet, I HIGHLY recommend checking them out!

There will be two bi-weekly sketches per month. I would love to see what you guys do with these. Please head over the the April Lilli Facebook Group where you can share your take on the sketch. Also, we’ll be having challenges with surprise giveaways for participating!

Some of the super-creative DT members have already started participating. Here are a couple of takes on the sketch from Simone and Odessa!

This first layout by Simone actually uses the sketch upside down. You don’t have to use the sketch exactly like it’s shown. You can make it work for you by rotating or even shrinking it like Odessa below in her 6X6 layout.

If you’d like to share your take on this sketch or see what other people have made, make sure you head over to the Facebook Group here!

I am so excited about this and I hope you guys are too! Make sure to check back for the new sketch coming later this month. Have an awesome scrappy weekend!

March Featured Line Lovely Day!

Layout by DT member Simone

The Featured Line for March is Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy!

This line is consistent with Dear Lizzy’s fun and whimsical style. There are a lot of new icons in this line, but you could absolutely coordinate it with any previous Dear Lizzy lines! She still uses her signature pinks and aquas while adding a few new colors to the line. As usual, she has the perfect combination of everyday at home and travel motifs. I love this for Easter too!
