My Scraps & More Sketch #116 - So tired

I have another post on another sketch for today :). It's a good one though, I promise!

Mostly the design of a layout just pops into my head but sometimes I feel like scrapping but right that moment I have no idea what exactly, what photo, what layout, what papers etc, my hands are shaking cos I wanna create...I remember this feeling from my childhood too and now I see it on my 7-year-old. You desperately want to create but don't know what, don't know where to start...Know the feeling? So this is when a sketch really comes in handy. And now the new sketch was out at My Scraps and More this weekend, so that was a no brainer!

Here's the sketch, which was designed by the talented Jessy Christopher:

Well looking at it first, all I knew I did not want to just use strips of papers. I looked through my cut files if I have anything I could use for this design and as luck would have it, I have a pretty new cut file from The Cut Shoppe called Fall Finds that I haven't used yet and it's these fall theme border kind of designs, so awesome really! Originally I didn't want to use all of them but then I couldn't stop myself ha!

Then I also happened to have a patterned paper from Crate Paper that had this diagonal line and was part blue, part brown. Most papers I've used otherwise are from the Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice collection. All embellishments are also from this collection. 

I've backed up some of the cut outs to give them a bit of interest and also so they stand out more. Then I stitched them all down with aqua metallic thread, my favorite! Only the color though because it keeps tearing, so it takes ages to finish a couple of lines pfff.

Layered some paper scraps under my photos to give them a little bit of depth, then added some bits and pieces in the corners. I fussy cut the big pumpkin from one of the Simple Stories papers for my journaling and placed it on 3D stickers. Added the title, some Color Shine and Distress Spray and that was about it!
