You all know how much I love circles and this sketch was so much fun to put together. So excited to share the work of the guest designers this week. So let's not waste anymore time chatting and get to it...
Julia Short is a lover of nature and it is consistently reflected in her work. I was so happy when she volunteered to guest design. Julia is 66years old and lives in
Here is what Julia had to say about working with thesketch, "I was thrilled when I saw the sketch as it was perfect for showcasing some of my Husbands wonderful bird photographs. I knew I had some Webster's Pages that would be perfect for it too. So I hand cut some of the birds and butterfliesand along with some gorgeous Prima Marketing blooms, the page soon came to life." Below are some close ups of Julia's work. Check out the gorgeous butterflies.
Ellen Magnette joins us this week all the way from Belgium and her work is really wonderful. Here is what she had to say about working with my sketch, "What I love with Liz’ sketches, is that they often challenge me into using several pictures on the same layout, which is something I’m not used to, even though in the end I’m mostly happy with what I did ! I have sooo many beautiful photos from my sister’s wedding last summer that I immediately decided to go for these when I firt saw the sketch. Also, I knew I would make a corset at the bottom of the page, to add more romance into my layout. I then chose the papers, the chipboards and alphabet for the title, the embellishments, mixed the whole thing and got this layout !"

Lisa Jamerson is a fresh face and I love the beautiful simplicity of her layout with the sketch this week. Here is what she had to say about working with it, "This sketch was a delight. I love that it had a few photos on it and had quite a bit of white space. I used Shabby Green Doors (Life Preservers March 2010 kit) patterned paper and cut some parts of it to use as facets of the page such as the journaling spot and the piece behind the title. I love taking patterned papers and using them in different ways. This sketch was a perfect opportunity to do this. The butterflies are Life Preservers stamps which I wet embossed to make them stand out then I used foam squares behind them to pop them off of the page. The scalloped edge below the photographs is actually ribbon that is adhered below the piece of patterned paper."
