Thanks to those who voted for this week's sketch!  It's a 12" x 12" two-page layout and features and entire "string" of vertical 4" x 6" photos.

Hope you all have a great week - Happy Scrapping!!

Sketch of the Week: 2012-04-22 (8" x 8")

OK, so I promised both a 12" x 12" and an 8" x 8" two-page layout sketch this week and this is the latter of the two.

Next, with Mother's Day coming up, I'm transitioning to handmade card sketches, but you can still vote for the Sketch of the Week (I'll still keep posting those too).  Happy Scrapping!

Sketch of the Week: 2012-04-22

There was a tie in this week's Sketch of the Week (between a 12" x 12" two-page and 8" x 8" two-page layouts), so I'll post one of each.  The first one is the 12" x 12" and probably looks pretty simple, but that's the point.

This two page layout will display at least eight pictures (wallet size).  If you crop a bigger picture and use in the big strips, you can display even more.  My vision for the large strips are for patterned paper with a simple adjective vertically along the far right edge describing the picture (joy, smile, hope, courage, fun, summer, etc.) - the adjectives are your journaling.

Happy Scrapping!!

Upcoming Sketches

This week's Sketch of the Week is looking to be a 12" x 12" two-page layout (you still have time to vote)! Also, I've been on a little bit of a card kick, so I'll be posting some of those in the coming week as well. Hope everyone has a great weekend - Happy Scrapping!!!

This is my take on the Sketch of the Week.  My version incorporates the arrows in the original sketch and is actually a 12" x 12" single page layout.  Since the base paper had stripes, I used those as the lines for my journaling.

Happy Scrapping!!

Sketch of the Week: 2012-04-15

Thank you to all who voted - this week's Sketch of the Week is an 8" x 8" single page layout sketch.  

This 8" x 8" version can be converted into a 12" x 12" to support a 4" x 6" photo (with slightly larger background pieces) and you don't necessarily have to use arrows in the layout (that was just part of the inspiration for the sketch - my love of travel and always being on the go).  You can change the large arrow into a large horizontal patterned paper piece and the smaller arrows can be switched up for buttons, eyelets or brads. 

As always, if you'd like to see a sketch in a different format (6" x 6", 8.5" x 11" or 12" x 12"), you can vote for your favorite @ the Choubox Scrapbook Design Sketch Pad and maybe it will be the next Sketch of the Week!!

Happy Scrapping!!
