Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hello everyone!  Can you believe that it’s already Feb 3rd?  2015 is flying by!

A few days ago, I posted the February sketch in our Sketchy gallery.  In case you aren’t familiar with our monthly sketch challenge, let me be the first to enlighten you!  Each month, I create a sketch and post it in a new section in our challenge gallery.  Each month has its’ own gallery which contains the monthly sketches, along with lots of inspiration from our talented team members and readers!

Quick tip:  If you want to see all of the sketches at once, you can find them HERE in my gallery.

This month, the sketch features a single photo but you can easily adjust this sketch to suit multiple photos by simply enlarging the circle elements and adding more photos.  In honour of Valentine’s Day and its’ theme of love, I created this layout using a single photo, taken by a co-worker on my wedding day.  An avid photographer, she popped in on the day of the ceremony and snuck in to a side door, where Gary and I had retreated while the guests filed out before heading back out for a reception line.  She snapped one of our very first photos together, as man and wife, and it’s one of my favourites, to date!


Supplies used (I dug deep into the stash for this layout!):  Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock; Fancy Pants, My Mind’s Eye and Making Memories patterned paper; Silhouette Cameo die cutting machine; Sue Sykes cut file (circles); Sophie Gallo cut file (Mr. & Mrs.); Adobe Gothic Std font (“THE NEWLY”); Scrapbooks Adhesives by 3L foam squares; Sakura Micron pen.

If you like the black circles on my layout, you can download a free cut file here on my blog!

So head over to the gallery and be inspired!  If you upload your layout to our gallery within the month, it may be chosen for publication!  As well, I run a monthly sketch challenge on my blog and give away goodies each month to one random participant – upload your link here by Feb 28th to enter!
