Love Is… 8 1/2 x 11 Layout & Sketch!

Hi, guys! Today I’m sharing an 8 1/2 x 11 process video, with an original sketch! Of course, you could adapt 12 x 12 sketches to 8 1/2 by 11, but I wasn’t in the mood to do all the mental gymnastics because the proportions *are* different…. So then when I went searching for 8 1/2 x 11, I wasn’t finding sketches with all the components I wanted, and I decided it was easier to plan it out myself.

There’s a few different ways you can get the sketch. You can watch the video below and screenshot it–it appears near the beginning and again near the end. You can also pin it from here, right- or ctrl- click and download it, or print it.  

Hope you enjoy this video–if so, please like, comment, share, subscribe, you know the drill! ;)

6x6, Cards

Card Set from 6×6 Paper Pad Template

Love these templates and formulas. Operation Write Home has a few, and you can find two of them here. I used the second from the link to cut the pieces for all of these cards. However, their guide assembles the pieces into eight cards. I played a little and ended up with ten, instead. Fine by me! :-)

There’s three with a grid combo of four squares–I chose to center a sentiment on the patterned paper and wrap twine around the bottom. Pretty much all of the sentiments for the whole set include a combo of heat embossing and plain ink.  Like on the Father’s Day cards below, the frame and “Happy” are Pumice Stone Distress Ink, and the “Father’s Day” is heat embossed in silver.  Love the texture, dimension, and depth this gives.

Had a couple that I really had to search for images to add…one was definitely masculine, but the dress form stamp was a perfect fit for the other! Sentiments are stamped on the inside.

A couple of cards I dressed up with borders or additional matting and twine.

Then I ended up really winging it with these three, and made banners and bunting. Threw in a tag and a doily.  All of these are also dressed up on the inside a bit.

TFL!
