Scrapbooking with a sketch

scrapbook page

Whether you use them all the time or quite rarely, sketches are the thing that gets requested time and time again. So I have three for you this weekend – one for each day!

Today’s sketch is the simplest. I’ve just used one photograph, but you could add more photos to a central block if you prefer more pictures on the page. You can keep it simple or add more embellishment to this outline.

Create a scrapbook page, card or other craft project based on this sketch and upload it to your blog or a page gallery. Leave a link in the comments on this post to be entered to win. See this post for details and deadlines for this weekend’s online crop.

One randomly chosen entry will win a selection of label stickers for your next scrapping project. (Digi scrappers can opt for digital labels if you prefer!)

I can’t wait to see your projects!

  2. Lynetta Says:

    I think I may be cheating a little here as I have used this sketch for the red, aqua ad white challenge. Hey a girl can only try :-) you can see my effort here:

    very simple digi LO
    the lace is some that I scanned in and used as a transparency (this enables me to make it any size any colour) I also ‘cut’ the lace flower out of it to make the embellishment
    font used for title is Amaze and the journalling font is Arial

  4. Anne Says:

    I love a sketch! Shimelle, you actually sent me a sheet of unused stickers once, which is where the “love” label came from.

  5. Fay Says:

    I love a sketch too – kept it quite simple, think I’m going to hang it in my work room –

  6. Andrea Says:

    Terrific sketch Shimelle! I used it for my card:

  7. Jennifer Says:

    I quite like simple sketches like this, as there’s plenty of room to add what you like and make it your own! You can find mine here.

    I found this one pretty tough – I am not usually a simple scrapper! Check out my LO here:

    Shimelle, thanks so much for this sketch. It suits this formal photo perfectly and this page for my parents Golden Wedding album is now so much better than I would have done on my own.
