It has been an exciting week on the Sketch Support blog. There has been lots of inspiration using the 2-page sketch. I must admit, I was a bit stumped when I first saw it and really didn't have a vision at all. Here is the sketch that Allison created.
I decided to use the new Simple Stories Fabulous collection to create my layout and the sketch just came to life.
I downloaded a title from here to create my title.
There are so many cute elements to use and the flash cards paper worked perfectly for the border along the top.
I used some brads along the striped strip (a new favourite thing to do) and also popped up many of the stickers and die-cuts.
Once I finished the layout I just had to make one out of the Awesome collection so I used some photos of Matt and used the same design.
Each section is filled with stickers and die-cuts that express things about Matt.
I couldn't resist adding a stitched border. It just didn't seem finished until I did.
I even used the same title. I used some of the letter stickers, so the title would read 'Boy' You're Amazing.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you will take a few minutes and visit the Sketch Support blog too.
