From Sketch to Finish Volume 3 Inspired with Candace Perkins

We are so excited that our customers are being inspired to create with the sketches and contributor inspiration from our newest class, From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3! Our design team has been inspired to create with these perfect page-starters, and today, Candace Perkins is here to share what she created from the class content! 
Hello friends! It’s Candace with you today to share a layout using inspiration from a sketch in the new From Sketch to Finish Class Vol. 3! Guys. I LOVE this class! So much inspiration, information and ideas! As soon as I saw the sketches I was flooded with ideas! Even better, the exclusive class stamp is, no joke, my new favorite! I was so inspired by the class and the exclusive stamp, that I created a new favorite layout!

Products Used: From Sketch to Finish Class Vol. 3Document December Kit, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
You can see a little sneak of the sketch in the corner, shhhhh!  What I love about sketches is there really are endless possibilities.  I decided to turn the sketch on it’s side for my layout and change it to an 8-1/2″ x 11″ spread.

I love that I was able to use a combination of the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Stamp, papers and wood veneer circles from the Document December Kit to create the pattern in the sketch.  To add more dimension and interest to the design I added a few other embellishments from the kit and popped up some of the circles with dimensional adhesive.

I love the large title created with the “ho ho ho” wood veneer, and how it fit perfectly with the sketch.  I added the “love this tradition” chipboard sentiment to the top of the wood veneer for a little more color.  I wanted more textures on the spread so I added bits of bunched up thread to various embellishments.

This is such a fun and colorful spread that came together in a snap with inspiration from the the From Sketch to Finish Class Vol. 3 and the new exclusive stamp!  I can’t wait to see what you create with this sketch inspiration—the options really are endless!

Have a beautiful day!
