Hi there. It’s Tegan Skwiat with you today! I had a blast working with Elle’s Studio prodcuts for the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 5 class! It was so much fun using sketches for a jumping off point. For today’s layout, I was inspired by bonus sketch #30 from the class to create my favorite kind of project: a 12″x12″ page. I usually like to get creative and rotate a sketch when I use it, but this one spoke to me as is. I had envisioned a colorful stamped star background using the stamp from the class, so I wanted to keep the rest of the layout true to the sketch. 

Supplies | Beautiful Day Die Cuts, Life Right Now Stickers, Lovely Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Adventure Tags, Love Is 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack, From Sketch to Finish Vol. 5 Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp — Solid, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die

I was inspired by the sideways title to create a bold, colorful title using the awesome Large Jane Alphabet Stamp. I love it! I just made sure to use smooth cardstock and all of the stamped images turned out great.  

I hope you love this stamped star background as much as I do! I created it by using two star stamps from the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 5 Stamp. I first stamped the background using the larger open star stamp and multiple colors of ink. I then went back and added the little solid star stamp to the middle in coordinating ink colors. I embellished this corner with a Life Right Now Sticker and an adorable Wood Veneer Adventure Tag.

I am obsessed with the rainbow stripe patterned paper from the Love Is Paper Stack. I love that it adds even more color to the page. I also added a couple of sweet little puffy flowers from the Lovely Puffy Stickers.

I love that this sketch helped me easily create an awesome page! And I love that it includes four photos and got me out of my rut of single photo layouts. The From Sketch to Finish Vol. 5 class could definitely help you quickly document all of your summer and vacation memories, and you will have so much fun doing so!

Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to grab the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 5 class and your favorite Elle’s Studio goodies for your next project!
