SKETCH # 1-28-15 and Club Scrap Assembly Instructions

Hello Everyone

It is that time of the week again and this week we have something extra and very special for you too, so without further ado....

Hi, I'm Tricia from Club Scrap and I'm honored to participate in this week's sketch challenge at Let's Scrap!

Club Scrap has been around since 1999, and we design/manufacture a themed collection every month. (You can learn more about our clubs HERE, starting at just $19.95/mo. with no minimum commitement.) Our challenge winner will receive the latest Club Scrap Deluxe "Constellations" collection released this January. If you follow the page assembly instructions, you'll be able to make fourteen completed, embellished pages.

This is a snapshot of the pages . . .


And your kit:



Without further delay from your sponsor . . . this is your awesome sketch:


Here are the guidelines/rules for submitting your layout or card to the challenge:

All you have to do is use this sketch anyway you like. Create a blog post showing the sketch and your layout and linking it back to the Let's Scrap Sketches blog and add your layout to the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post.....

If you do not have a blog you can add your layout to our Facebook page, please remember to add the sketch number...

I had a blast transforming the concept into a fun layout with our Constellations kit.


The typical method in working with a sketch is to simply create an approximation of what you see. But in this case, I did a bit of extra planning, and can provide you with precise paper needs and cutting instructions to create the layout with incredible efficiency. (It's my thing, you see.)

You'll need a total of five 12x12 and three 8.5x11 papers. The cool thing is that you can assign papers from your stash to the ingredient list below. (Lord knows we've all got a stash!)

12x12 Paper A - Constellations Blue Plain
12x12 Paper B - Constellations Blue Print
8.5x11 Paper C - Constellations Burgundy Print
8.5x11 Paper D - Constellations Black Plain
8.5x11 Paper E - Constellations Grey Plain
(2) 12x12 Paper F (for the base) - Constellations White Prints

If you're new to using actual measurements when creating pages, the following steps may be a bit of a stretch, but it's worth the experience -- I promise!

1. Trim 12x12 Paper A at 11.5 and 8.75". Cut the 8.75x12 horizontally at 10.5". Trim the 1.5x9 horizontally at 6.5 and 4". Repeat the same cutting instructions with 12x12 Paper B. Cut a v-shaped chevron into each 1.5x2.5" strip.


2. Trim 8.5x11 Paper C vertically at 6.5, 4.5 and 2.5". Cut the 2.5x11 horizontally at 9.5 and 8". Trim one 2x11 horizontally at 9". Cut v-shaped chevrons into each 1.5x2.5" strip.


3. Cut 8.5x11 paper D horizontally at 6.25". Trim the 6.25x8.5 horizontally at 4.25". Cut the 4.75x8.5 horizontally at 7.5 and 3.75".


4. Trim 8.5x11 Paper E vertically at 8 and 4". Cut each 4x11 horizontally at 6".


Once all of the pieces are trimmed, it's time to assemble the page according to the sketch. If the piece is not used on the layout, there will be an "x" on the diagram.

Here are a few details of the completed page.

I cut ribbons to match the paper and nested them together.

Silver Dazzles Jewel Stickers were added randomly to the prints for a nice glow.

The caption was stamped onto one of the Burgundy scraps with white pigment ink.

These adorable stickers by Jillybeans were included in August's Cinema collection.

I hand-cut the braces from the 2x11 pieces of the Burgundy print.

A white gel pen came in handy for a few captions.

The featured event was my daughter's homecoming dance photos. (She's the one in the grey dress.)

Now, it's your turn! I hope you take these paper trimming formulas for a spin! To see this technique in action using a Club Scrap Lite Constellations collection, you can watch this VIDEO.

Here is what our Design team came up with to inspire you.














I hope that you will find some time to play along and have a chance to win this amazing prize.
