June 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout!

Hi friends! It’s the Canada Day long weekend here – what better time to post a new 1-2-3 sketch and layout?! This month it was fun to work with the new Citrus Summer collection by Creative Memories! I LOVE the bright colors and patterns and fun imagery in this collection!

My 1-2-3 Sketches and Layouts are a great way to get photos onto pages FAST! You only need ONE piece of double-sided patterned paper, TWO pieces of Cardstock (or Album Pages) for the base of your layout, and we’ll make the entire layout with only THREE cuts! This month I’ve included spaces for up to SIX photos but you can always add in an extra photo, or substitute a Variety Mat Card or Journaling box in place of one of the photos. Here is the sketch:

I made a quick video to show you how fast this 1-2-3 layout comes together! Grab a cold drink and have a look!

After cutting, arranging and adhering the paper strips, it only took a few minutes to add the photos, a few embellishments and my journaling. So easy, fast and fun! (All Creative Memories products featured are available through me or my Canadian personal CM website)

Here’s a closer look at the finished layout and a couple more details:

You can head over to the OCM shop to get a copy of the FREE printable handout with the sketch, cutting guide and instructions! Have a great weekend!

Happy Scrapping!

  1. Thanks, Noreen, for showing us another wonderful layout sketch! When CM first came out with the Citrus Summer collection in early June, I just couldn’t get too excited about it because I couldn’t see using all of those BRIGHT COLORS on a layout. But with your 1-2-3 system, I now see that using your photos helps tone the colors down and makes the stickers work, too! Thank you for sharing your skills with us. Have a happy summer!
