Sketch Support #38 | Learn How to Use and Adapt Scrapbook Sketches | Day 3

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 layout of Sketch Support is always about proving that the size of the sketch doesn't have to determine the size of your layout. Today I've used the two-page sketch as the inspiration for a one-page layout.

Here is the two-page sketch:

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 - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper, chipboard, die cuts, wooden circles, and stickers: Cocoa Vanilla; Embroidery floss: DMC; Computer font: American Typewriter

I don't think it's possible to ever get tired of square grid-style designs. At least not to me! It's such a classic design that can be adapted to so many different styles and themes. Plus, it's easy to do so that's always a big win!

I created a 9 square grid made up of triangles. I cut out nine 3 x 3" squares and then cut them in half diagonally. Then to arrange them on my layout I mixed them up so each square has two different patterns/colors.

I had three 2-1/2 x 2-1/2" photos and I added a small white mat to each one and placed them on three of the squares.

The middle square felt like the perfect spot for my title. I used some die cut words layered with a chipboard banner piece.

For three of the squares I heavily embellished them with stars, planets, and rockets.

On the remaining two squares I added my journaling and some word/phrase stickers.

That's it for Sketch Support this week! On Monday I will be posting the YouTube version.

Also, if you enjoy all of the free sketches that I have created, be sure to join us in the Creating w/ Sketches Facebook Group! We have layout gallery for all of the free sketches that I have created.
