December 2019 Sketch Challenge | Creative TeamDec 18, 2019
Hello FJ friends!
Today we have a brand new sketch challenge to share with you...yay! This month our sketch has been created by creative team member Ulrike Dold and it's fabulous!
Here's Ulli to tell us all about the gorgeous layout that she based her sketch on...
Ulli here with you today sharing the December Sketch with you. I really appreciate the monthly Felcity Jane Sketch challenges - every month its so inspiring! I love creating layouts with sketches. This time it was my turn to do the sketch and I always do the layout before.
I’ve used the gorgeous new Felicity Jane Noel collection for it and had so much fun. I wanted a clear and a centric structure and first I cut a big and a thin paper stripe from the wonderful Winter & Trees patterned paper and glued it on the bottom of my paper and added them on the lower part of my page. Then I added the wonderful square Paper Lace Doily in the middle of the thin paper stripe. I’ve used two pictures and used 3 D dots to add dimension. I used some metal dies to make some cute wintry branches - therefore I´ve used the FJ Essentials White Cardstock. I stamped some pine branches against my photos and decorated them with the the Die Cut branches on the left side and the right side of my pictures. I used one of those cute Designer Gift Tags to add it under one of my pictures. For the title I’ve used the cute Noel Puffy Alphabet in black and the mini puffy alphabet stickers from the Holly collection. I glued them arched over the paper doily and my photos. I stamped the date with the FJ date roller stamp on a Noel label and added it centric on the top of the Dollie border. I’ve decorated the layout with the little snowflake dot stamps, the Die Cut Shapes, the photo corners and some sequins. I also used the number 9 from the chipboard numbers to add the date big on my page against the cute house Die Cut. For the journaling I printed my text and made paper strips and glued it on the layout. At the end I splattered black ink across the page and added some epoxy dots, sequin dots and a Megan Puffy Sticker here and there.
I hope you like my sketch! I hope you playing along with us! Can´t wait to see all the wonderful projects from you!

Team member Mandy has also created a beautiful layout from the sketch...
I love using sketches to kick off my creative process, and this one designed by Ulli is so lovely! Because I stuck to it fairly closely, my layout came together so quickly and easily! I started off with two 3x4 photos, taken when we decorated our Christmas tree recently, and I used the gorgeous Noel collection. I chose the patterned paper with the tiny Christmas trees on it for my background, and then I covered the bottom portion of the page with the beautiful woodgrain patterned paper. Next I layered my two photos together in the middle of the page, and I tucked a journaling card under each one. I then fussy cut a couple of the poinsettias out of the patterned paper, and I added those on either side of the photos, along with a few leaf sprigs from the die cut pack. I tucked a tag under the top of the right hand photo, as shown on the sketch. And lastly I added my title using the Noel alphabet stickers and a gold word from the puffy title stickers pack. I had so much fun creating this page, and I can't wait to see your layouts based on this sketch too!

Next we have team member Lydia with her fabulous take on the sketch...
I had so much fun adapting this amazing sketch to fit inside my December 6x8 album. I really wanted to stick pretty closely to the original sketch, and Ulrike created the sketch with the Noel collection in mind, so it was a breeze! I emulated her dots by pulling the dotty 12x12 paper, and then ran a line of glitter washi across the middle. With a pretty little doily from the shop and my two photos, it took up most of the space on my page. I pulled out my alpha guide tool and created a pretty little curved title too. This sketch was so much fun to add to my December scrapping!

Team member Tina has also been creating with the sketch! Here she is to share her pretty layout...
Hi FJ friends!
What a beautiful sketch by Ulli! I had so much fun creating this layout and playing with the wonderful Noel kit! When I saw the two words "Title" and a place for two photos the idea of making a page with "before and after" photos just popped up in my head as I had such photos of me from last year's December. So I started by creating a background using pattern papers and stamps from the kit. After that I matted my photos with a plain green paper, made a tag using the tag builder set and added a few embellishments around. In the end I adhered strips of paper with my journaling printed on them. And that was all!

Next we have team member Jana who is sharing how she interpreted the sketch to create this wonderful page...
What a beautiful sketch from Ulli! Simple and very Christmasy, something you definitely want to create, right?
I started with my most favourite paper in the collection, the black and white trees. Then I added the snowflake ribbon as a border which gives the page nice soft feel. Since my photos are black and white I wanted to add some colour - so the embellishments and backing papers are red and green. I also couldn't decide which title to use so I used both - the gold foil title sticker and the black puffy alphabet. The little poinsettias are fussy cut out from a 6x6 paper.
I can't wait to see what you create using this sketch. Have a lovely Christmas, everyone!

I also have my version of the sketch to share this month too...
As soon as I saw Ulli's fun sketch this month I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my December album so I sized my page to fit into one of the 6 x 8 inch page protectors. My layout is a simplified version of the sketch to suit the smaller size of my page.
I used the Cozy Digital Kit and Photoshop to print the star paper pattern across the bottom of the plain white cardstock. For the title, I used the digital "Christmas" word stamp from the Cozy Kit, transformed it in Photoshop to create the curved shape, then added the word "cuties" underneath using a font from my computer. The striped piece across the middle of the page is one of the branding strips from a Noel Kit paper. I decided to only use one photo since my page size was small but I did add a tree die cut, chipboard flair, chipboard number for the day and a couple of labels. Instead of journaling strips like in the sketch, I printed my journaling onto vellum and stitched it onto a die cut label under the photo.
I had so much fun working with this sketch and I'm so happy with how it looks in my album!
We hope you've enjoyed seeing everyone's projects today using this sketch and encourage you to join in too! Don't forget to use #felicityjane if you share your work on IG so we can see your creations! We love to see what you come up with!
