1-2-3 Scrapbook Layout – June 2017

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 paper2 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:

And just in case you’re looking for a good Applesauce, Applebutter or “Apple Brown Betty” recipe, here’s a closer look at mom’s recipes. I promise they are easy and tasty…give them a try!

All the products shown can be purchased on my CM website, and don’t forget to download your FREE copy of the sketch and cutting guide here so that you can refer to it as you create your own version of the layout. I always love seeing what you create with these sketches, so please feel free to share it on my Facebook Group page or leave a comment below!

Happy Scrapping!
