Be advised. August is almost here! For some that means…SCHOOL. For others, fire season and the heat of the summer (I’m in this group). And for others…Fall? Spring? What’s it like down under?
The end of the month means another edition of Project 12. I enjoyed the June sketch this month:
And this is what I came up with this month:
I had a lot of fun with this sketch and my color palette this month. I really liked the mix of blue, yellow, and red. I was also really happy to have a fun place to use those tickets from October Afternoon.
This sketch provided a great layout for my end of the school year photos, and I added an additional photo to round out the happenings at my house.
As always, I was really inspired by what I saw linked on the blog here and in the Facebook album. Here are some special touches to point out:
I loved this one from Roslyn:
I love the cluster of embellies, the use of older product, and the horizontal stripes. I really like those flowers too.
I wanted to also make sure to share Mary’s layout this month. Mary is a digital scrapper, and while I don’t scrap digitally, I would think using a sketch would be an ideal way for digital scrapbookers to create layouts:
I love the incorporation of extra photos on this layout, as well as the multi colored stitching. I’m grabbing my DMC floss and doing that by hand, SOON. I love the different colors together on this layout.
I can’t help myself. I’m obsessed with Shelly’s work so had to include it this month. I love every single precious inch. I love how she did her journaling with tone on tone strips, I love the placement of the dark brown elements, love the extra photos, and the cluster of circular embellies. LOVE. One of my favorite things about Shelly’s contributions is that this isn’t current. This layout is from 2008?, maybe 2009. I love that she went back in time to participate on this project.
There is a lot to look at in this next one from Julie:
I love the texture and interest created with that masked image behind the journaling. I like the doodling, and the black photo mats and all of the photos she included. I love the memorabilia and the fun summer papers she chose too. This is a fun one!
The color palette and clean lines from Erica’s layout drew me right in:
I’ve mentioned Ally before but it’s worth doing so again because of how easy she makes this challenge. Every month, Ally creates a simple collage of photos, and then has it printed and puts it on an 8.5 x 11 layout to recap her month. I love her monthly collage photos and how uniform it must make her monthly album look.
Ladies, thank you so much for participating despite how busy this time of year is! I was so happy to see so many contributions. For your efforts let’s give away a couple of prizes!
From my blog: Melanie (http://buildwisely.blogspot.com/)
And from SCT: Mica (http://scrapbookedmoments.blogspot.com/)
Congratulations! Thanks again for playing along!
August should prove to be another busy month, but I have a lot of July photos to play with, which makes the next sketch so fun:
(a printable pdf is available at our website at www.scrapbookandcards.com)
Would you like to know what we are playing for this month? ADHESIVE! Every girl needs a little adhesive so we thought we would give you A LOT of adhesive because that is just who we are...lol. Two winners (one from my blog and one from this one!) will win a selection of the new This to That adhesive from American Crafts! Rolls, runners, pop dots...oh my!
AND because our dear friend Grant from American Crafts is so generous, while the SCT team was at CHA Grant offered two Patterned Albums for two people for complete all of the Project 12 sketches and share them with us at the end of the year. We will have more details later but wanted to give you even more incentive to get them completed! These albums are beautiful....
or maybe this one suits you better? The choice is yours!
Remember, you have until August 20 to link your July layout to this thread when we released the July sketch, and/or the August 1 blog post on my blog (http://davinie.blogspot.com) if you want to be entered in for the prize. You can also email your creations to email@example.com to be included in the Facebook gallery. Ever check out the Facebook gallery? It’s really inspiring. See it here.
Have a great month!
ps...confused as to where to link your sketch? Always link the month you are working on to the post when that sketch was revealed! If you are playing for a prize that month, link it by the 20th of the next month. For example: July's sketch should be linked to the post when the July sketch was revealed on or before August 20. Super simple!
