Guest Designer for Sketch #12

We are thrilled to have Sarah Gladman guest design for sketch #12 here at Inspired Blueprints.


Sarah is in several design teams and we are honored to have her. :) Here's her awesome layout...
Trains Inspired Blueprints Sketch 12

"These photos were taken on a family holiday in the Australian outback town of Dubbo. There was not much for the kids to do on a rainy day and on a drive we found this tiny shed that was home to the man's train collection. My boys were mesmerised! They could have watched the trains go around the tracks all day :)
This sketch was easy to adapt to any theme and could have used any combination of papers.
I opted for a bold colour collection and so I printed some large arrows from the computer and used them as templates.
The photos were all cropped to the same size and then their edges were sanded so that they stood out from the background. I mounted the large letter stickers on white cardstock and then mounted them off the surface of the LO to provide a 3 Dimensional effect.
A leftover packet of white letter rubons provided some patterning on the blue background, breaking up the empty space."


  1. This is gorgeous Sarah! Thanks for playing with us this sketch.

  2. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity of working with you, girls!
    I had a great time with this sketch and I've done a few of the other sketches as well - they were fab - especially when you feel a bit drained of mojo.
    Thanks again girls!
