Love using sketches to inspire your scrapbook page layouts? Pagemaps offers some incredible inspiration and I'm excited to share a new layout inspired by a Pagemaps Sketch from their May eblast today showcasing the newest Bella Blvd Collections.
I used one of Kerri Bradford's photo collages from her Snapshots #3 Kit for these fun photos of my youngest holding a turtle he found in the backyard one morning before school. Photo collages take the guesswork out of arranging photos on a layout and I love how easy they are to use. If you haven't used Kerri's photo collages before and want to learn more, be sure to check out her tutorials HERE.
Here's the Pagemaps Sketch the above layout is based on:
I trimmed the Bella Blvd Campout Collection In The Woods and Bella Blvd Campout Under The Stars patterned papers and adhered them on a white cardstock layout base. I applied a thin gold metallic washi tape where the two papers meet. I punched a half circle along the top edge of the paper and placed a heart sticker from the Campout Treasures & Text Sticker Sheet in the punched out circle. I layered another sticker from the Campout Trinkets Cardstock Sticker Sheet on top of the heart. At the bottom of the two patterned papers, I adhered a trimmed border sticker from the Campout Treasures & Text Sticker Sheet.
I adhered letter stickers from the Campout Treasures & Text Sticker Sheet to spell the word, "backyard". I finished the title by die cutting the word "notes" from an Avery Elle Jewel 6x6 paper pad using a design from Kerri Bradford's Around Here Kit and adhered it below "backyard".
I die cut a turtle using a design from the Silhouette Online Store from Avery Elle Harvest 6x6 paper and Bella Blvd Campout Let's Go Camping paper and adhered it next to the title. I adorned the turtle with a heart sticker from the Campout Trinkets Cardstock Sticker Sheet.
I used a photo collage from Kerri Bradford's Snapshots #3 Kit for the two photos I chose for my layout.
I printed the journaling on a Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party paper. I used stamps from Kerri's Line By Line Stamp Set with Lawn Fawn Deep Sea, Mermaid and Freshly Cut Grass Inks. I added a tab sticker from the Campout Treasures & Text Sticker Sheet to the journaling sheet and "attached" it with a Tiny Attacher. I added a Doodlebug Blue Jean Clip and adhered both the journaling and photo collage to the layout. I "taped" up the photo collage to my page with Bella Blvd washi tape.
I finished the page with a scattering of Bella Blvd Blueberry Enamel Dots.
