Scrap 365 September Sketch – Ride Time Layout & Process Video

Hello all. Sorry I haven’t been by much, our internet is still not fixed (nb: don’t use Talk Talk if you can help it), we’re switching to another company so it will be fixed, but not for another 3 weeks! This is driving me crazy!

In the meantime, today’s the reveal for the Scrap 365 September Sketch Challenge:

September 2014 Sketch at Scrap 365

This month the prize has been donated by American Crafts, so make sure you enter to try and win a bundle of goodies!

Here’s my layout for some inspiration…

Ride Time:

Ride Time by Jennifer Grace - September Sketch for Scrap365

Fun and colourful, right?! I pulled lots of American Crafts items from my stash to use (from collections including Plus One, Cut & Paste, and Mayberry) since they were sponsoring the challenge and all. But I used other items too, including the background paper which is from the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection. It took me a while to choose that as my background paper though… I explain my choice for this and other details on this Page Process video:

Here’s a better look at the close up details…

 I loved how I could lift the edges of the letters on the ‘OXOX’ tag from the Plus One collection up to slide them over the photo and patterned paper.

In the above photo you can see a bit how much the gold embossing powder shines in the light and makes the whole page extra special!

    Looking absolutely gorgeous!
    I’m going to start a summer themed scrapbook using mostly Simple Stories I heart Summer Collection; but still, it felt ‘heavy’ and somewhat unnatural for almost all the elements to be from one single collection…so I’ve been wandering around looking for other items from different brands that could ‘click’ with it, and ended up here 🙂
