Sketch Support #29 | Learn How to Use and Adapt Scrapbook Sketches | Day 4

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 last day of Sketch Support is always about showing how you can adapt the sketch to work for a different size of layout. I used this two-page sketch to create a one-page layout.

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 22 different sketch options. That makes 23 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 three one-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 - Patterned paper: Paige Evans and Simple Stories; Die cuts, stickers, foam word, alphabet stickers, chipboard frame: Simple Stories; Computer font: Century Gothic; Embroidery floss: DMC

Even though this is a different size of layout, I still followed the sketch somewhat closely.

For my photos I used three 2-1/2 x 2-1/2" photo arranged in a row just like the four photos on the sketch. I did add a little chipboard frame to highlight one of the photos and help bring attention to my title which is slightly overlapped on that frame.

For the background pieces I used three pieces layered together like the sketch. I did change them a little and made them square to work within the square 12 x 12" background.

Instead of stars I decided to use lots and lots of flowers. The white lined patterned paper has flowers along the bottom so I used that as my starting point and build around that.

I used a mix of die cuts and stickers and use lots of foam adhesive to add dimension to the design.

There are some flowers and leaves that wrap around the left and right edges as well. That's a little different than the sketch, but that's the fun of using sketches and inputting your own ideas. Don't be afraid to do your own thing!

I also added a few flowers and leaves in the top right corner.

That's all for today and the last layout of Sketch Support for February! Be sure to check back Monday for the video version were I talk through all of the changes.
