We are truly delighted to share this sketch with you! It’s one of the most versatile we’ve ever shared and we just know you’ll love it too!
January “Incredi-Sketch” by Disney Creative Co.
It’s designed in such a way that it can easily be turned on its side for more options. That is the hallmark of a great sketch- one that can be turned sideways, flipped, mirrored…and still translate into a very user-friendly starting point for a variety of pages!
In fact, Jackie did just that with this adorable page about meeting one of the Chipmunks in Disneyland Paris! She turned the sketch on it’s side to better fit her portrait-oriented photos. So cute!!!
“Hi Dale” by Jackie Ashton:
Jackie says she did not have enough of the letter “L” for her title, so she improvised and made an “L” out of parts from other letters. Genius!
The addition of cork phrases give the entire page just enough dimension to take it to the next level! Of course, we also can’t help but smile at these adorable selfies that Jackie snapped with her son!
“Safari Love” by Natalie Strand:
Natalie is giving us some serious jungle vibes with this colorful page she created using the sketch! Her choice of bold floral paper across the top of her page is perfectly balanced by the sunny yellow below. She created a whimsical border and visual break between the two patterns by using giraffe washi tape.

We are ALL about those impressive clusters of tropical leaves and flowers! The vibrant mix of patterns and textures create a stunning focal point.

Natalie used this super-versatile cutting die to create her film strip accent tucked under the left edge of her photos. Using white cardstock helps it to stand out against the colorful leaves and flowers.
Orange epoxy dots and sparkly mouse-shaped facets from Scraps & Ink Crafts in pineapple yellow add even more dimension and visual interest, not to mention being just so darn cute!
“Jedi Training Academy” by Vicki Von Richter:
Vicki created this impressive page with a Star Wars theme. Her use of solid grey as her background allow her photos and stunning die cut accents to really stand out! Vicki also used a few pieces of Mickey washi for fun pops of color and visual interest. BB-8 we love how you roll!
“Behind the Seeds” by Emily Adams:
Emily stayed true to the sketch and created this page with photos from the “Behind the Seeds” tour at EPCOT’s Living With the Land attraction. Her use of two smaller portrait-oriented photos in place of one of the landscape photos is a great way to use images of different sizes and orientations.

The red die cut Mickey strip was created using this cutting die from Scraps & Ink Crafts. Emily stacked two, one above the other, to make the piece appear longer. Such a great idea!

Who doesn’t love a little “bling”? Emily added a fun black sequin padded applique from Scraps & Ink Crafts for a bit of shine.
“Just Parading Around” by Lacey Robin:
We LOVE the way Lacey used the sketch for her colorful parade photos. Backing them with the fireworks patterned paper really makes them pop!

Lacey used this super-cute gloves cutting die to draw the eye right to her title. The contrast of the solid red and white stands out perfectly against the fun patterns in her background.

Great minds must think alike, because just like Emily, Lacey also opted to add a bit of shine to her page with a red padded applique. The additional smaller confetti-filled shaker helps convey the fantasy-filled magic of the parade!
“Cool Cuties” by Heather Ribble:
While closely following the sketch, Heather also did an excellent job matching her patterned papers to her photos for this “cool” page! We think her kids are just the cutest!
“Cool Cuties” by Heather Ribble- close-up 1:
Love how Heather inked the edges of her patterned papers to give them more definition. This is a classic technique often used to keep layers of different patterns from looking too busy. Subtle but effective! Similar to Lacey, Heather also added a bit of dimension and whimsy to her page by using a blue confetti-filled shaker.
“Midway Mania” by Kristin Fougeron:
Colorful pops of blue and green are perfect for Kristin’s Toy Story themed page! She also added a third photo proving just how easily this sketch can be adapted to work with your own pics.
“You Are So Loved” by Michelle Sinclair:
The only thing better than a Disney treat is THREE Disney treats! We think Michelle’s use of the sketch looks absolutely delectable!
“You Are So Loved” by Michelle Sinclair close-up 1:
Michelle used adorable treat-themed cutting dies cut from a variety of colorful patterned papers for many of her yummy layered embellishments!

That adorable little resin sandwich cookie looks good enough to eat!
