Hip Kit Club Sketch Challenge - Scrapbooking Layout - Love Us

Hey, it's Jody from Floppy Eared Farm.  I participated in last week's Hip Kit Club Facebook group's sketch challenge.  They have one every week and I had time to give it a try.

I love their challenges, not only are they fun sketches but you do not have to use Hip Kit Club products to enter.  The winner gets a $10 gift credit to the site!  I have actually won once before! 

I was pleasantly surprised by our family selfie!  I thought I'd better print it and scrap it because I just don't know when I'll get a decent one! This was taken on Christmas Eve 2018 but the colors we had did not really work with the Christmas collections I have.  So I dug in my stash and found the lovely Shimelle's Go Now Go collection from American Crafts.  It had that perfect light blue and deep red I needed.  I did some fussy cutting from a page with all those cute cameras and put them aside.  I then painted the white stripes.  I used the cheap white acrylic paint from Walmart.  Of course, I had to add some splatters too! While that dried, I added a few layers behind my photo.  I put a simple matte around with the beautiful green paper, then added the December card. Under that, I put craft foam to give it dimension. Finally, I added a large piece of that cute tree pattern paper to anchor it all down. 

I scattered the cute cameras around along with enamel hearts and wood buttons both from the collection. I used a chipboard camera piece right on the photo along with a cut out camera to help move your eyes around the page.  I finished it off with a simple Love Us title in the matching Thickers and added the date.  

I love how this page turned out.  I think using a sketch is always a good idea because you can take it in any direction you would like to.  I hope this inspires you to print those pictures and start documenting your life! 

P.S. I did not win the challenge 😉
