April 2018 Monthly Recap Layout

Sometimes I see a sketch and immediately know what I want to scrapbook with it, what papers to use and can visualize what it will look like when completed. Other times, it's not so easy. This completed layout was done recently during a Scrapbook with me event and I am the first person to admit it took a bit of thinking and revising plans to figure out how I was going to use the sketch and what I would scrapbook. I am so happy with how this came out and am excited to share this with you.

The layout was based off this 1-page sketch from Bella Blvd Studio Blog. You can see this sketch along with others here.

This was another 1-page to 2-page sketch challenge I gave to my group. I loved seeing how everyone met this challenge - so many interesting methods for making a single page sketch into a double page layout. For mine extended the hexagons from the left page to the right and then hand them ending trailing off to the bottom right as opposed to where they started on the top left.

I based my stash for this layout in pulling out some retired So Much Happy paper to cut my hexagons from. I used the 2 1/2" die from the Stitched Hexagons Thin Cuts set for this. This is a great set of dies with many uses.

The title was cut on my Cricut and I used Sapphire and Mint cardstock to cut it twice and then slightly offset the pieces to give some added dimension.

I added some more dimension by using Thin 3-D Foam tape under some of the hexagons and also overlapping the photos with them.

I used a pencil and ruler to draw a "frame" 1 1/4" in from all sides on the left-hand page and then using the .01 Black Journaling Pen I created faux-stitching along the frame and then erased the pencil lines.
