Week 1 {ODBDLYLS12} Scrapbook Challenge

Happy December everyone! A new month means a new scrapbook challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. I hope you are as excited as I am. And because December is a busy time of year and sketches are so easy and fun, we decided to challenge you to another sketch challenge this month! So your scrapbook challenge for December is to: create a layout of any size using ODBD stamps and the sketch below. Have fun with it! Turn it, add more than two photos, make a journaling box, etc. There are lots of fun things you can do with a sketch.

I left the sketch "as is" but used one collage photo instead of two separate photos. I created my own background paper using the new ODBD Honeycomb Background along with the Mega Mount. The Mega Mount makes stamping backgrounds a piece of cake! I then used the Blessed Christmas set for the title and poinsettia on the bottom right-hand corner of my page.

Papers:  Melissa Frances Deck the Halls, Paper Trey Ink cs 
Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps:  Blessed Christmas, Honeycomb Background
Stamp Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Inks aged mahogany, frayed burlap, fired brick, peeled paint, and mustard seed; Archival Ink coffee
Tools: Mega Mount 
Embellishments: Spellbinders large deckled rectangles, Paper Trey Ink buttons, misc. twine, Tim Holtz distressed doily die, Basic Grey writer's block tags, misc. ric rac, sewing machine

I hope you have enjoyed my page today. Suzanne, our guest designer, is also sharing a layout using this sketch so be sure to see Suzanne's blog post here.  And to see all of the guidelines and to join in the fun with the chance to win a $20 gift certificate, please see the ODBD post here. You have all month to enter, and we can't wait to see your pages! Have a blessed day, and happy scrappin'!

Gorgeous layout and sketch! Beautiful background and love your focal point of the girls and the poinsettia! I love that twine twirling around the edges. Fabulous!

Would you believe, I was just thinking "Oh, it's Wednesday, so no post from Patter" and there came your email, after all! Ha....

How did you attach the twine?

This is pretty. I especially enjoy the clear black and white photos.
Your take on the sketch is gorgeous. The honeycomb pattern, stitching, and variegated twine really complement the papers, too. Thanks---Jennifer in Ohio

Hey sweet Jennifer! Glad you like it, and how funny you were thinking of my post when it came through. :) Anyway, to attach the twine, I used my glossy accents. I lay down the twine first, and then I lift gently and put some lines sporadically underneath the twine and press down. It can be messy as I usually get the Glossy Accents on my fingers as I work with the twine but it dries nicely on the page. Hope that helps, and have a blessed day!
