Scrapbooking Sketch of the Week

Scrapbooking sketch and page ideas
scrapbooking sketch and scrapbook page
Two things that came out loud and clear from the comments at the weekend? A bunch of you love the sketches. (Yay!) But you wish there was a way to go straight to all of them. (Oh.) Well, actually there is! All the sketches are right here, and there’s a link at the bottom of each individual sketch post to take you there, but maybe that’s not very clear… so I’ll get a button added like the 4×6 Photo Love button and that will make things easier.

And if you have two landscape 4×6 photos, that will make participating in this week’s sketch challenge easier. Plus this week there is both a video and a prize! Oh, it’s just happy crazy scrap land here, I tell you.

The printable camera I used is from a kit called Picturebox and you get thirteen printable camera images for £1.50 (about $2.45 in US dollars). Then you can print them at any size, on any paper and use them on as many pages as you like. (Digi scrappers, you can also paste them into your pages, of course.)

As part of the week of giveaways, this week’s sketch is sponsored by Little Musings and one participant will win a collection of free goodies! Please like them on Facebook here to keep up to date and thank them for supporting this week of scrapbooking fun!

To enter the challenge, create your page based on the sketch and upload it to your blog or a scrapbook page gallery. Copy the URL for your entry and paste it into the linking box below! The deadline for this challenge is the end of next Tuesday – the 23rd of August 2011 – at midnight, UK time.

Since the last sketch is still open for a prize until this Sunday night, I’ll wait to share my favourites from that and next Wednesday I’ll share both lots together for double the fun!

    Yay! A sketch and a video. Lol at you not telling your left from right! I knew that would get you one day :D

  2. Betsy Says:

    Thanks for the kit suggestion!!!!! I can’t get enough camera images but I can’t stand buying a whole set just for one image.

  3. AllisonLP Says:

    I’m excited to get home and watch the vid for this sketch, and start playing. In the meantime, I’m getting those camera images and the typewriter images! TFS :)

    Loved the sketch and having a video to show what you do is like having a personal tutor love it! Thank you so much

  7. MaryM Says:

    Love your style and how easy your layouts seem to flow.

  8. Michelle OKeefe Says:

    This was great. I agree, love that you show we make mistakes & can fix them without stress.
    I am wondering – How do you create a layout upside down when you do these videos for the camera? I know I could never do that.
    Thanks !

  9. Mary M. Says:

    Yay! I’m excited for a button to the sketches! There has been so much great inspiration this week and I haven’t had any time to play. =/ Thanks for all the great videos!

    Yes it’s true, we do love sketches :) Must have a go at this.

  11. kaatje Says:

    great layout with a lot of challenges for me. Have respect for those who easily layer things and make combinations. And i am more a person from straight lines and squares and boxes to journal. But i like to be challenged so I gave it a try. You can see it at “
    thanks again and a great weekend and week to follow even though i can’t do all the challenges.
