Twice a month, we'll be bringing you a new sketch, and showing you a few takes on the sketch by our designers. Today, we have our second sketch for August, courtesy of Becky Fleck.
"Sweet Baby Cakes", by Kim Arnold.
This was a delightful sketch to use with these photos of my sister in law and baby niece, and the gorgeous Baby Girl collection. I love how all the different patterned papers work together and I think the pink stands out even more by adding a dash of blue with the checked paper from the Baby Boy range. I used one of the border stickers from the Baby Girl collection to substitute for the stitching at the top and bottom of the photo block. The zig zag design printed on it works perfectly.

“This Moment”, by Loredana Buccaria.
I adore the sketches, you can't imagine how! They are amazing to create a page very quickly. I have made this page as a gift for one of my friends that has got married last July. I think that these colors are perfect for the photos and for the event! With only some little details as stickers, letters, buttons or journaling stickers you can create amazing pages in few time! Bella Blvd products are so easy to use and so beautiful to see in your pages! They are perfect for any occasion! Try this fabulous sketch, you will create an amazing page, it has inspired me so much!

"Today 3”, by Vivian Masket.
I loved the simple blocked design at the center of the sketch and used that as a jumping-off point for my layout. I turned the sketch upside down and replaced the blocks of patterned paper with banner shapes that extend beyond the white inner canvas. I created flowers by pleating Designer Tape and finished each flower with a center created by rolling up a small piece of Designer Tape in a contrasting color. A cluster of buttons stands in for one of the flower embellishments in the sketch.

“Davis Girlies”, by Wendy Wagner.
I followed this sketch almost exactly. I ended up with 3 photos instead of 2. I wanted to use my nieces school photo's from last year. What a cute way to showcase the 'boring' school photo. I distressed the edges of my papers, and of course I inked just about everything like usual. And I had to jazz some of it up with a little bling & stickles. I love scrapbooking with sketches since it seems to simplify things for me.
