Hello everyone! I am posting this from my hotel room in Anaheim, California. I have a terrible connection, so I hope this works.
This week over at Sketch Support it is card-sketch week. There have been some beautiful cards posted. Here is the sketch we are working with.
Here is the layout that I did using the sketch. Amanda and my mom made me a beautiful rag quilt for Christmas. My mom took photos of Amanda while she was making it and gave them to me because she knew I would want to scrapbook them.
For the green and striped patterns, I used leftover fabric from the quilt to create the background for my layout. It was a bit tricky to work with, but I really wanted it to be part of my page.
I made sure that I added stitching to tie in the 'quilting' part of my page. The grid was inspired from the sketch but the layout is a past sketch that we have used on Sketch Support.
I added some wooden spools wrapped in matching paper to keep with the quilting theme too. I might replace these with spools wrapped in the thread instead.
I used my favourite font for my journaling, which was so important on this page.
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to stop over to the Sketch Support page and see what all the ladies have created.
