Lots of gals have card sketches on their blogs, but I don't see many scrapbook sketches. I've been thinking about it for a few weeks now, and thought why not? Since I will be in scrapping mode for a while.
I do go to scrapping websites and blogs too, but most of them don't stamp. So, I am offering up sketches and layouts which are suitable for stamping scrapbookers. Let me know what you think. If anyone wants to play along I will start offering a prize maybe? For the first sketch I went with a layout that I use a lot...because its simple and allows for lots of photos if desired. Remember, you can crop many phots to fir in one space, or blow one up, or in my case below, I flipped one of the photos. I also created a card for you using the left hand page as my sketch to show you the versatility.
If you do play along, please link your page or card (from your blog or SCS) to my comments section so we can all go check it out. Use CSS1 (Cyndi's Scrappy Sketch) for your keyword...I don't think anyone has used that acronym yet??
Peek 1: This is the first page from the boy track for the upcoming Fundraiser! You can obviously title yours anything you want, but "hugs" worked for my photos. I actually created the sketch first and then made the page from that. All supplies are Stampin' Up! I used Tempting Turquoise as the base and Real Red for the large mats (I pulled these colors out of the paper I chose...East Coast Prep DSP) My photo on the left didn't work right, so I flipped it and then matted it on Wild Wasabi. The stars are a combo of Nursery Necesseties, Starstruck, and Classic Bakgrounds. I used the large and small star punches for these. Also used: Jumbo Outline alphabet, Define Your Life, 1/2" circle punch, Bold Brights brads, Red striped Grosgrain, Wild Wasabi Dbl stitched grosgrain, Turquoise and mustard 1/4" grosgrain. Here is a closeup of the bottom right corner.
I also made a card for you using the Nursery Necessities set. I still used the East Coast Prep paper, but chose the sheets without red this time. I stamped the little boat 3 times: each color on color: Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi, and Marigold Morning (yes, its actually Mustard in the paper, but I liked he Marigold better) , cut them up and then pieced them back together. You'll notice I still used the same basic layout, just leaving off the 3 small circle elements at the top. My "title" is still there, but hard to see under the watermark...it says "welcome, little one". Hope you enjoy! Please play along and show me what you made :)
More sneak peeks of the fundraiser pages tomorrow. I hope to do one a day til the dealine for Early Bird registration!
