My Sweet Darling Scrapbook Layout

Happy Thursday! Lately, I have been using lots of sketches to make layouts and I am loving it. Today I'm sharing my take on a Citrus Twist sketch challenge. Below is the actual sketch.

For this layout, I used a photo of my husband. I love when I capture photos of my family while they are not looking at the camera. I really love this photo so I knew that I had to use it on my layout. 

I decided to keep this layout simple and used a few items in my stash. Since the sketch has several hearts going down the page, I knew that the transparency die cut hearts from the January 2016 Freckled Fawn embellishment kit would be perfect for the layout. To adhere the hearts, I used my Tombow Xtreme Adhesive glue runner. Then I used the same adhesive on my photo and placed it on top of the hearts. Once I had my hearts and the photo adhered, I added the Tim Holtz sticker phrases and the Amy Tangerine puffy heart and word stickers. I also used some alpha stickers to spell out the word "My" since I didn't want my title to simply be "Sweet Darling". Then I added some sequin stickers and then added the date to my layout. Below is another look at my layout.

I really loved using this sketch because I was able to use so many items in my stash. I have had a hard time using up a lot of my transparency heart die cuts so it was nice to finally put them to use.

Supplies Used:
  • Recollections sequin stickers
  • Date stamp
  • Alpha Stickers
  • Tombow Xtreme Adhesive glue runner

Do you use sketches when creating layouts or other projects? What have you been documenting?

Until next time...

  1. How cute! I'm loving the hearts down the page. I think photos where the person isn't looking can be some of the best.


  2. This is darling! I do sometimes kind of sketch out my plan for a scrapbook page but most of the time just jump in and do it. I like the idea of planning it out though!
