Sketch Support #28 | Learn How to Use and Adapt Scrapbook Sketches | Day 1

Once a month learn how to use scrapbook sketches and adapt them to fit different styles, photo sizes, and themes. Sketches = endless scrapbooking ideas with little effort. Sketches do all the heavy lifting allowing you to have all the fun!

The first Sketch Support of 2023 starts today!! I'm so excited for this day to be here!

This month there is a new, FREE one-page sketch that I'm sharing with you all plus I've created four layouts all based on that same sketch. The point of Sketch Support is to show how you can easily adapt and customize a sketch to fit any needs whether it's theme, photos, or supplies. I'll be sharing a different layout Monday through Thursday and then next Monday I'll share the video version on YouTube.

I really enjoy creating and using this sketch and I hope you do too!

Here is the sketch that I have used as the starting point for each layout this week:

This month it is a 3-page PDF of 23 different sketch options. That makes 24 sketches for this month of Sketch Support. There are options that show how to change up the papers, use more photos, use less photos, there are four two-page options, and then an 8-1/2 x 11" option. The fun part is that you could use each option as a layout on its own, but you could also mix and match different options for endless possibilities!

Supplies used - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper, die cuts, stickers, enamel hearts, and wooden circles: Cocoa Vanilla; Wooden title piece: Fancy Pants Designs; Embroidery floss: DMC

I have zero variations to share for this one because I followed the sketch exactly. I thought the design was fun and I happened to have the perfect photos, papers, and embellishments for this sketch.

To put my layout together I chose a different patterned paper for each slanted piece and then I added a white stitched border along the edge of each one.

For my embellishments I used a combination of flower die cuts, enamel hearts, die cut hearts, wooden hearts, wooden circles, and word/phrase stickers.

For my title I used a wooden "life is good" phrase and a few more phrase stickers.

That's all for today! Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the day two layout!
