March 2020 Sketch Challenge | Creative TeamMar 18, 2020
Hello FJ Friends!
Are you ready for a new sketch challenge? I know I am! This month lovely creative team member Danielle Menage-Jensen has designed the sketch for us to work with and it's so good!
Here's Danielle to tell us a bit about the cute layout she created with her sketch...
Danielle here, sharing my take on the sketch challenge using a little medley of scrummy kits.
I created the sketch this week and I wanted to keep it fairly simple to give everyone the maximum burst of creativity.
Flipping through my photos I found a very cute picture of my cat Clem poking her head through the stairs. I decided to use this for my layout along with the title ‘pretty kitty’. I used some branding strips to add colour and balance to my page and created a patchwork of coordinating Lola and Jaimee papers along the right-hand side. I put together a sweet rosette to add a fun embellishment along with a date stamped tag to add a colour pop near my title.
I hope you enjoy what I’ve created and I’m super excited to see what you put together using the sketch.

Next we have team member Lindsey Lanning with her lovely take on the sketch...
I'm no stranger to using sketches as inspiration in my memory documenting but I wanted to challenge myself to use one for a Bible journaling entry. I often get stuck in a routine for how I layout my pages so this was a fun way to break that routine. Since I wasn't using photos, I decided to use stamped florals for the square cluster. The Henley stamp was one of the first products I ever purchased from Felicity Jane and I love that you can use it to create custom colored layered florals.
Have you ever used a scrapbooking sketch for inspiration for a project other than memory documenting? Share in the comments below if you have!

Team member Jana Bennett has also created a sweet layout using the sketch...
Even though it was not my turn to participate in our FJ sketch challenge this month I just couldn't resist Danielle' brilliant sketch. Guess why! The possibility of using lots of pictures was just too tempting! I also love when the pictures are hoarding towards one side. It is my favourite kind of composition.
I knew I would have to use the Bailey kit once more. I went for pictures from last summer and ended up with three. The dotty black and white paper is from the Jenny kit and the colourful scalloped border is from the Bailey kit. When I placed the pictures to the side I kind of regretted that I hadn't printed more of them but then I decided I would go for those pretty flowers from the Bailey kit. I fussy cut out a few and used them instead of another photo (or paper). At the very top I stamped the title. I embellished the photos with two felt hearts and added journaling as the last step.
I can't wait to see what the rest of the team comes up with and especially how YOU ALL interpret this beautiful sketch in your layouts!
Last, but certainly not least, we have team member Ulrike Dold to share her fabulous layout using the sketch inspiration...
Hi FJ friends!
Here is my sketch version of the FJ March sketch, designed by Danielle. I love the sketch of this month and I had so much fun with it! I worked with the wonderful Summer collection Elizabeth, the Jenny Cardstock fringe and some Bailey patterns. And of course many different FJ alphabet stickers.
I cut a wide paper strip from the Elizabeth "Gingham & Script" paper and glued it on the bottom of my layout. Then I layered two of my pictures and the wonderful Jenny cardstock fringes on the right side of my 12x12 page. I punched out the third photo with a circle punch and punched also some circles from wonderful Elizabeth and Bailey paper scraps in different sizes and glued them on my page. I found this wonderful quote at Pinterest "Of all the paths you take in life make sure a few of them lead to magical sunsets at the beach" and I had to use it as my title. I used many different Felicity Jane Alphabet stickers (13 different FJ Alphabet stickers), and I really love how it turned out. I fussy cut the citrons of the Elizabeth "Lemons & Tiny Dots" papers and decorated the circles, the pictures and my complete page with them. I also decorated my page with the Elizabeth Layered Stickers, the Elizabeth Chipboard Shapes and the flowers from the Elizabeth Die Cut Shapes. I added numbers from 1 to 3 on my pictures and added a black mini wide paper clip and a Denise charm on the picture on the top. To finish off my layout I added some Brooke Puffy Shapes here and there.
I hope you like my sketch version off this month!
Stay healthy, my friends! xx, Ulli
