July 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout

Hey everybody! We’re having a PJ Party over on the Creative Life Scrapbooking Facebook Page tonight featuring the new Rainbow Rush Collection from Creative Memories! It’s a gorgeous group of papers, floral and laser cut embellishments, and stickers! The July 1-2-3 sketch and layout as seen here is my contribution to the PJ Party, but make sure to head over and check out the other Rainbow Rush projects the CLS team has come up with!

As you probably know by now, 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  – a combo of 4″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ sizes – and there is space to add even more photos if you like! Here is the sketch:

And in the video I show you how to quickly put this layout together, and also how you can adapt it for 6″ x 4″ photos as well. Grab your favorite summer drink and take a peek…

After cutting, arranging and adhering the paper strips, I decided to mat my photos on some White Cardstock. Then I created a few embellishment clusters and added my journaling on a sticker tag. Super 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 fun trying your own version of this layout – whether you use Rainbow Rush or another great collection!

Happy Scrapping!
