Hi friends! I’m here with the 1-2-3 sketch, layout and video for June…I promised that I would have it ready before the very last day of the month and here I am with 4 days to spare! Woohoo!
If you’re not familiar with my 1-2-3 Layouts, they use just 1 piece of double sided patterned paper, 2 pieces of Cardstock (or CM Album Pages) for the base, and we make the entire layout with just 3 cuts. Each month I give provide you with a free printable with the sketch, cutting guide and a sample finished layout for inspiration. You can download, print it and follow along with it to create a great two page layout. This month’s sketch has room for five photos, a title and embellishments. y You can always customize these layouts to suit your needs by using more or less photos, or (as I’m planning to do), swap out a photo or two to add some journaling. Here’s the basic sketch:
There were so many incredible product offerings this month from Creative Memories that it was hard to choose which collection to use, but I decided on the food-themed Made With Love Collection as I wanted to document some of my mom’s recipes in our family scrapbooks. I’m using a sweet double sided patterned paper that has a fun red bandana pattern on one side, and a lovely yellow floral pattern on the other side. So grab a cool beverage and sit back to see how fast this yummy layout comes together!
The 1-2-3 process is so fast that after making the cuts when I filmed the video, it only took about another 15 minutes to complete the rest of the layout…in fact the thing that took the longest was writing out the recipes! I created the title with the Gold and Black ABC/123 Stickers, and then added my stickers in clusters, popping a few up off the surface of the layout with foam squares. Here’s a closer look at the finished layout and a few of the details:
