Card Sketches for Scrapbooking
I rarely use a card sketch to create a scrapbook page, but this week over at Lets Scrap the sketch is for a card, and since I’m trying to finish up my 2011 scrapbook I really wanted to do a scrapbook page. So here is what I came up with.
The main element I took from the sketch was the scalloped background piece on the left of the page. This page is also a great example of using my stash, combing papers and embellishments from all sorts of different collections. The background patterned paper comes from Paper Wishes Rich & Spicy papers. It’s a beautiful collection that has more of an autumn feel in its colors. The orange spider web mat and the paper used for the title and accent piece with all of the different words are on it come from a 4.5×6.5 Halloween mat stack from DCWV called Ghosts and Goblins. I used a lot of these papers to create Halloween cards last season and still have quite a bit of papers left over in the stack. They were perfect for this page.
The different embellishment pieces on the scalloped piece are die cuts left over from Paper Wishes Halloween Finished In a Flash kit. The arrows and tag along the edge of the bottom photo also come from the same kit. The little knotted ribbon is another one of those left over pieces from another project.
Finally I added the two corner treatments which come from Paper Wishes Halloween Dazzlessheet. The web and spiders were the perfect elements to go with my daughters Halloween costume: Spider Queen.
By the end of the project I’d learned to apply a card sketch to a scrapbooking page and was ecstatic at how much of my stash I’d used.
Hope you enjoyed!
