4th Grade All-Star {Paper Issues Keep It Sketchy}

Last year I thought it would be fun to create a layout for each of my students, and I had a blast, so I'm doing it again!

I created this for the Paper Issues Keep It Sketchy challenge, using this sketch:

Here are some details. I used the Star Background free cut file from Paper Issues. I used the Carta Bella Boy Oh Boy collection and backed all the open stars. I added a few Studio Calico wood veneer stars to some of the solid stars. They were the perfect shape! Once I backed all the stars with patterned paper, I mounted the cut file onto my background cardstock using pop dots.

I used a mix of old letters for my title--4th on the Jenni Bowlin label is American Crafts, grade is BasicGrey, and all-star is AC Thickers. 

The baseball is a cut file from the Silhouette store, and the flair badge is by A Flair for Buttons.

I love challenges, and Paper Issues always has a ton of really fun ones! I had fun creating this page, and I'm looking forward to making the other 21 pages for my students!

Precious {CSI Case File No. 248 and Stuck?! Sketches Mid-Month Challenge}

We've got a brand-new challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.

Here's the page I created. I used the traditional clues (which are my interpretation since I create the Case Files, LOL). I used the colors and some of the Evidence clues--solid white background, floral pattern, hearts, butterflies, leaves, flowers, and something fuzzy.

 I also created this for the mid-month challenge at Stuck?! Sketches, where I'm a design team member. Laura gave us two sketches to work with, and I had already created a layout with the first sketch, so I thought it would be fun to combine the challenges.

Here are some details. I cut out some flowers from a Carousel paper and the green butterflies from a One Canoe Two paper. The fuzzy brad met the fuzzy element from the clues.

The title is by 2Crafty from when I was on their design team. I coated it with glittery gold embossing powder. They're sponsoring CSI this month, so you'll definitely want to play for a chance at winning some of their beautiful chipboard.

The pretty floral stencil is by Tim Holtz. These texture paste flowers on my background were inspired by the outlines of the balloons in the Case.

I chose to use that large piece of brown woodgrain paper since the brown bear was so prominent in The Scene. I've had that butterfly brad in my stash forever. It's by BasicGrey. The green striped paper is also ancient. I think it might be Wild Asparagus. How's that for a blast from the past?

You'll definitely want to come play with us. CSI has 15 sponsors this month! Wow!

And Stuck Sketches has two sponsors offering $25.00 gift certificates.
