Sketch Thursday with Melissa Mann

Happy Thursday, everyone! Melissa is playing along with us today, using this sketch above to create a layout! Here’s what she has to say: “I really loved this sketch that was based off this layout by Jennifer Chapin!”

Sketch_MLM1Products used: Thankful Paper Collection, Let’s Eat Bits & Pieces, Let’s Eat Stickers, and if you look closely, you’ll see some October kit and printable sneak peeks!

“I liked how she used the Elle’s Studio “September” digital cut file from last month on her layout but I decided to instead use another picture in that block on the sketch. I used two vertical pictures and layered them with some paper from the “Thankful” collection and stitched it all down with my sewing machine. I typed up my journaling on a piece of vellum similar to the sketch and stitched that down. I decided to go ahead and place my title across the top part of the vellum and stitched that down. I tucked a few little labels and tags around the photos from the “Let’s Eat” collection!”
