Wide Open Spaces

Keeping the mojo going here after a fun National Scrapbook Day with another Scrapbook with me session with my ladies. Today's session worked with a sketch from the Close To My Heart blog and I am excited to share my version here with you. I have been asked recently to share my process so I have also included a process video for this layout here.

This layout uses the Tinkerin' Sketch which can be found here on the Close To My Heart blog.

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to scrapbook with it and was so excited to be able to pair it with the new Aurora collection from Close To My Heart. I changed the sketch up a bit by rotating the pages so the borders were on the outside instead of the bottom as my photos were in a different orientation than the ones in the sketch. I also used an image from the Artbooking Cricut Collection from Close To My Heart to create the borders instead of the scallops. I cut the border image out and then used the negative space left and placed a strip of patterned paper behind to create a different style border. You can see the Artbooking Collection on my Cricut affiliate link here.

I also used one of our new Cricut Collections to create the title for the layout. Close To My Heart has introduced a new mini collection created to coordinate with the Aurora paper collection. You can see this collection here.

I did some stamping for the embellishments on the layout using stamps from the Aurora Scrapbooking stamp set as well as the Here & There stamp set. I added a few acrylic shapes from the Aurora acrylic shapes to finish it off.

 You can see a walkthrough of the creation of this layout along with my process towards working with sketches on my YouTube channel on this video.

I hope you liked the layout and the video. Thanks for stopping by.
