Sunday Sketch | Candace Perkins

This week our scrapbook sketch is an 8.5" x 11" layout featuring layered and stitched strips of patterned papers on the left side of the page with a repeating title and photo slightly offset from the center. Our notebook sketch has a grid of eight photos on the left page and journaling on the right with a cluster of embellishments in the upper right-hand corner. And our pocket page sketch features a 4" x 6" title card with a central focal element and a 3" x 4" photo with stamped sentiment in the upper left-hand corner. Creative Team member Candace Perkins is joining us this week and sharing her take on the week's scrapbook sketch! Be sure to follow Candace here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.

Our notebook sketch comes from Marcy Penner's Hello Spring spread:

And our pocket page sketch comes from Barbara Picinich's Bookmarked Documenter | April 2017 spread:

And here's Candace's take on our scrapbook sketch:

I love working with sketches! I love that my layouts can come together in a snap when I use the inspiration that a sketch provides. For my layout, I used the sketch based on Marcy Penner’s beautiful 8.5" x 11" scrapbook page.

I wanted to change up my layout a bit so I turned the design on its side and changed the layout to a 12" x 12" spread. I kept the basic design of layered paper adhered with stitching (I love this look!). Using stamps from the new On My Way collection, I stamped sentiments along the horizontal plane of the layout.

For a final touch, I added fabric labels to coordinating papers. This is such a great design. I love the clean lines and the focus on the photo. How will you be inspired to use the sketch?

Now it's your turn! Make a project using one of this week's sketches as a starting point, then share it in the Studio Calico gallery.
