Scrapbooking with a sketch

scrapbook page

As promised, a third sketch for our third day of cropping! This one uses a row of photos right across the page. You can use two 4×6 landscape images or you can change it up with a row of portrait photos printed at a smaller size.

sketch for scrapbooking

You can use any type of embellishment you would like where there are stars indicated on the sketch, and fill the large box in the middle of the page with your photos.

Upload your project to an online gallery or your blog and leave a link in the comments on this post. One randomly chosen entry will win a prize pack of scrapbooking supplies!

Can’t wait to see what you make!

    Had fun with this sketch – kept it simple and loved using these ‘outtakes’ from a photo shoot with my sister a few years ago.

    Liking this sketch, Foe some reason I have been making a number of LO’s where the photos go across the page.

    Found this one really quick to do. Here is ‘let’s share’ which is a very strange thing to say where my pair are concerned!

    Share? Never in a month of Sundays but then add in food of the chocolate variety and no chance!

  24. Peggy Says:

    Ah-ha, the old “two,4X6s on the bottom” sketch again ;-) I love this page design & I use it all the time.

  25. Sarah C Says:
