Sketch Day with Kim Chaffin

Hi, scrapbooking friends! It’s Kim, and I’m happy to be here with you on sketch day! I love to use Elle’s Studio sketches for ease in designing a layout. It was a piece of cake using the October 2021 monthly kit and add-ons with this sketch. Today I’m sharing a layout that documents Halloween costume fun with my husband. Let’s take a look at the sketch!

This sketch has space for photographs, journaling, embellishments, and a title. The options are limitless, because a sketch can be altered in whatever way is needed. Let’s take a look at my take:

Supplies | October 2021 KitCozy Printables, Home Sweet Home Cardstock Stickers

I love the impact of a large photo as my background, and I chose a favorite one that has room on which to layer other elements. I typed my journaling directly onto the photograph. 

The index tabs are a really fun element of this sketch! I chose to staple two from the October Kit to the edges of my smaller photos. I stamped the date on one, but I left the other one blank for the moment. Ultimately, I decided on a leaf sticker from the Home Sweet Home Cardstock Stickers for this spot.

I created my title using the “tradition” tag from the Cozy Printables. I added the words “our costume” to the top of the tag, and I adhered a phrase strip cut from one of the October Kit pocket tags to complete my title, placing the extra photos to the left of the journaling. I adhered both with pop dots to help them stand out a bit from the very similar background photo. The only thing remaining was to embellish a bit, and I chose two leaves from the Home Sweet Home Cardstock Stickers. Just like that, it’s done!

I’d love to see how many ways you can use this sketch and the October 2021 monthly kit and add-ons! Share what you create in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group or on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio!
