Melville Family | Stuck?! Sketches July 1st Challenge

Hi friends!

It's time for a new sketch challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches! Here's the July 1st sketch designed by the talented Laura Whitaker...

And here's my take on the sketch...

I documented a photo of our extended family on my husband's side, taken about six months ago. Unfortunately we are not often all together like this as my sister-in-law and her family live in another state, so it was so nice to get together with the whole family when they were here visiting. And I'm glad that we were able to get a photo of us all together!

I dug into my Felicity Jane stash to create this layout, and used the beautiful 'Emeline' kit.

I started my layout off by creating my title using my cameo. First I cut our family name 'Melville' out of the white cardstock background, and then backed it with that gorgeous woodgrain paper from the kit. I then cut out the word 'family' using a Felicity Jane cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I added some foam tape underneath this word to lift it up and give it some extra dimension.

I decided to use one landscape photo rather than the two smaller photos on the sketch, and I tucked some fussy cut florals underneath both sides of the photo.

I decided to add a little cluster up in the top right hand corner of the page. In this cluster I included a beautiful wood veneer tab, as well as a cute little floral puffy sticker, which I tucked under the edge of the tab.

I finished the layout off with a couple of little wood veneer hearts and some little puffy dots.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll head on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the fabulous layouts created by my fellow design team members! We'd love you to play along with us by creating a layout based on this sketch! Link up your layouts on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by July 29th to be in the running to win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors:
