Stick it Down double page inspiration

It's time for the rest of the double page team at Stick it Down to show our inspiration layouts for the double page sketch.

I have used photos from a trip to the US last year showing the great Rocky Mountains. I have used papers and embellishments from the September kit from Swirlydoss, with papers from BoBunny, Prima flowers and chipboards from Creative Embellishment.

Here is the sketch:

It's still time to play along with us this month. You have until October 31.

I let the chipboards without any treatment this time, I think the long filmstrips looked great on this page with all the 4x6 photos.

For the title I used three different types of letters. For Rocky I used a QK alphabeth, for mountain I used some letter stickers from BoBunny (came in the kit) and for national park I used some square alphastickers.

I alos used a sticker for an additional text, below my photos, together with a filmstrip and some flowers.

All patterned papers got a touch of distress ink on the edges.

With this layout I also take part in the challenge Prosjekt2016 at Scrappeland, challenge 1 for october is an inspiration photo:

Stick it Down sketch release for September

Here is my take on the September double sketch at Stick it Down:

And here is the sketch, made by Ali Gage:

I have used two different pattern papers from Blue Fern Studio as background papers on these pages. The title are cut out in the same cardstock as I have used for matting all the photos, and then I draw a line around the letters, to make them pop up a bit.

I draw a line and stamped inside it, instead of using another layer of paper for backing on two of the photos.

I have stamped at all the places where the sketch has a star.

Here you see the stamping on top of the layers in the pattern paper.

Feeling Sketchy sketch #152

It's September and time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy today.

Here is my take on it:

and here is the sketch #152

Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.

I have used their digistamp Floral trio frame 1. I printed on cream cardstock and colored with Prisma color pencils.
The little butterfly in the down left corner is a wood veneer treated with embossingpowder.
I just stamped my sentiment right on the paper, since I loved that paper and didn't want to cover it. The sentiment says "Flowers for you" in norwegian.

Stick it Down double sketch August

It's time for more inspiration from the double page team over at Stick it Down.

I have used photos from our trip in USA last year. One day we stopped at the Prairie Village Museum in Rugby, ND.
On this layout I have used photos from outside the buildings.

The sketch looks like this:

As you can see have I choosen to use all the photospots, also the two circles are used for photos on my layout. Since I had so many photos this was great for me. I think this sketch opens up for a lot of variations on what to use all the possible photospots for. They can of course be used for embellishments or as journaling spots. Try it out!

Since I buy kit's which has one of each of the patterned papers I always struggle when I have a double page sketch with layers of 12x12 papers. So this time I wanted to try out to use different papers through the page. Without coloring it you can just see the lines between them on the sketch and it's all up to you have you want to use it. I covered my background with different patterned papers, but you use just one or two and let the cardstock be in between.

Here are some closeups from my layout.
First a couple of flower clusters.

The journaling is about the place and tells a bit about some of the houses.

I put the title right on the backgroundpapers without the banner that is on the sketch. I think it worked well for mme.

Papers and embellishments are from the March kit from Swirlydoos. The papers are from Prima and BoBunny.
