July Jump Start Sketch Inspiration ~ Designers Rochelle Spears and Brenda Ragsdale

Today we are showcasing two layouts inspired by the 

First up is this super fun page designed
TSR Designer Rochelle Spears
using the 
Carta Bella "Beach Days" Page Kit 
included in the 

"Summer Vacation Hawaii"
"This layout came together for me quite easy. The sketch was fun and wanted I wanted to use a fun collection with fun photos. This Echo Park page kit from the Doubleshot is so super fun that it was perfect for this sketch and photos. 
Everything is from the page kit except the twine and the Gold Thickers."

Our next layout was created by
Designer Brenda Ragsdale
using the
Simple Stories "Bloom & Grow" Page Kit
included in the
July Flavors of the Month Kit

"Priceless Moments"
"I love a good sketch and especially matched up with a great page kit.  It makes putting a page together easy and less time consuming.
I adapted the sketch to use just one photo because I really wanted to use this page kit to document this priceless moment of my granddaughter at the zoo checking to see how her wingspan measured up to an eagles.   What is so priceless about the photo is that she is holding her arms straight up over her head versus stretching them out on her sides (LOL).
The colors in this kit I felt were perfect for the photo and I added the doilies to make it more girly.  
Instead of cutting the smaller circles from the patterned paper, I used the stick on brads included in the kit for the smaller circles in the sketch design.  
I love how versatile this page kit is. The first layout I created using it was of my great nephew having fun at the strawberry farm.  

Everything used to create this page is found in the kit with the exception of the doilies
which from the Pebble's America the Beautiful" Page Kit also included in this month's FOTM Kit, the twine, and the rub on (Priceless) from my personal stash and the phrase sticker is from a previous 
FOTM Kit. Oh and I forgot the background wood grain patterned paper is from the 
July Patterned Paper Add-on Kit."
