Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 8.13.12

Two page layout fans, rejoice!  This week’s sketch sketch from BasicGrey sketch artist Susan Stringfellow is designed as a two page layout utilizing four photos.  Feel free to use this sketch as is or simply use half of the sketch for a single page layout – or whatever you wish! – the possibilities are endless!

Graduation | Yohko Takiguchi

BasicGrey design team member Yohko Takiguchi used this week’s sketch to document her son’s graduation.  I love how she used a non-traditional color scheme for this topic!  Yohko explains, “The photos used on this layout were taken at my son’s elementary school graduation ceremony. I chose Plumeria collection, which matches with the formal ceremony. Instead of using three banners, I placed three lines consisted of many small flowers.”

San Francisco | Nancy Burke

BG design team member Nancy Burke also used this weeks sketch and chose to pair it with our Clippings and Paper Cottage collections.  Nancy says, “When I first started scrapbooking over a decade ago, the majority of my pages were double page layouts. In recent years, having shifted my focus to creating projects for various manufacturers, I have found myself not creating double page layouts nearly as often as I would like. So when I was given the assignment to create a double page layout using this versatile sketch by Susan Stringfellow, I was excited to give it a go!  The sketch has three rows of banner swags. The new garland banners from the Clippings collection were perfect for this! And the best part? They were pre-strung! Just tear them from the sheet, and they are ready to go!”

  1. I love the 2-page sketches, and particularly this one — it has the trendy banners and flags. I can work with that! Thanks!

  2. How do you use the sketch as a template? I am new to digital scrapbooking and I am not sure how to use the sketch? Thanks.
