From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Inspired with Neela Nalam

With the busy holiday season upon us, we may not have a lot of time, or creative mojo to create. That’s when a sketch can come in handy! Today, Neela Nalam is sharing how she was inspired by our latest sketch class, From Sketch to Finish Volume 3, and we love the festive layout that she created! Let’s take a look!
Friends, have you had a chance to check out the From Sketch to Finish Volume 3 class here at Elle’s Studio? I was blown away by all the wonderful sketches in the class, the amazing contributor inspiration, and the 6″ x 8″ exclusive stamp that goes along with this class is something else, too! Today I’m here to share a new layout, inspired by one of the sketches in the class.

Supplies | From Sketch to Finish Volume 3 class with stamp, ‘Tis the Season Wood Veneer Labels, Green Puffy Alphabet StickersFamily Fun Bits and Pieces, Family Fun Puffy Stickers, Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection 
Using sketches to start my layouts always makes it so much easier to complete my project. A lot of times, I end up drawing a sketch on a notepad before starting my project, but it is super easy to be stuck in a rut with your own creations sometimes. At such times an inspiration from a sketch is all you need! You can use it as a jumping-off point or follow it to the smallest detail. To create this project I picked a simple sketch from one of the thirty that are provided in this class. I don’t use too many tags on my projects and absolutely wanted to pick one with tags (there are multiple sketches with tags in this class, by the way). I stamped on the details of the tag with the awesome exclusive class stamp and added a wood veneer piece from the ‘Tis the Season Wood Veneer Labels and a Family Fun Puffy Sticker. I decorated the photo with a single puffy heart sticker.

One of my favorite parts of this project was to use the chevron stamp from the exclusive class stamp to mimic Christmas tree fronds as a border along the edge of the layout.

Another favorite on this project are the papers from the Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. I love the wood grain and the chevron papers and they were perfect to use for a Christmas layout.

I loved going through the sketches in this sketch class, and I know I am going to use it again and again to spark ideas for my layouts. Make sure you check it out today, while the exclusive class stamp is still in stock!
