Sketch Challenge on a Scrapbook Page

Sketch Challenge

This week’s challenge is based around this sketch.  To be totally truthful, I just couldn’t picture a card to go with this.  I guess I’m not very good at sketch challenges.  I decided if I was going to make something with pieces in this layout it was going to have to be a scrapbook page.  Doing a scrapbook page means I get 10 extra minutes too!  I have 20 minutes to get a page together.

Here we go!

It’s time to get this scrapbook page going!

Inspired by Nature stamp set

I began with a 12″x12″ piece of Garden Green cardstock.  Across the bottom I stamped the grass from Inspired by Nature.  Next I ran to the Big Shot and cut a Night of Navy Scallop Circle.

Circle Scissor Plus

I grabbed the Circle Scissor Plus and one of the pictures I wanted to cut in a circle 3 3/4″ in diameter.  The Circle Scissor Plus is the most wonderful tool for cutting circles at a specific size!!

Frame the page

I decided to frame the scrapbook page in one of my favorite styles.  I cut eight strips of Night of Navy cardstock that were 1/4″ x 12″ in size.  I wove the pieces at the corners which was probably the most time consuming part of the page, but not too bad.

Buid a Bear Die

Running to the Big shot again I grabbed up the Build a Bear die and Accessories die so I could build this little guy.  My son participated in a Race for Education at his school this spring where people pledged money for each 200 yard lap he was able to run in an hour.  He ran 26 laps and I wanted to record it!


Whew!  I did it, just less than 20 minutes.  To be quite truthful, I’m not sure if I’ve ever done a scrapbook page this fast before!  I enjoy scrapbooking but it doesn’t necessarily come quickly to me.

Finished Page

Here is the finished page.  It’s not overly magnificent and I need to add a second page but yeah, I’ve got a start!  Once I have the second page done for this layout I’ll show it to you – it’ll probably be a Scrap Club layout for June.

Thank you for stopping by to visit!
