Basic Scrapbook Sketch : 2.11.13

This week’s sketch features three elongated photos.  Or does it?  What if you used a larger photo or paper and cut into three smaller pieces?

BG scrapbook designer Kelly Noel used this week’s sketch to create this fabulous layout utilizing our new Hey You and Hey Boy collections.  Kelly says, “I have fallen completely in love with these lines! As a boy mama, I’m loving the colors and embellishments so much! I also adore how well these lines go together. I mixed them here using the sketch as my inspiration for the design. The thing I love about sketches is that they can be interpreted in so many different ways. I was inspired by the three strips that were intended to be photos, but instead used strips of patterned paper and a 4×6 photo across the strips. The large flower element on the left is replaced on my page by the adorable pocket and journaling tucked inside. I mimicked the circles on the sketch by using a mix of buttons and brads along the bottom edge of my photo and the title placement on my layout is similar to the sketch.”

Now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one comment at random to receive a $10 credit to shop at Comment must be posted by February 17, 2013 at 11:59p MST.

  12. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam
    comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

  13. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with
    this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!
