Happy Friday! It’s my turn to share for #featureprojectfriday on the Creative Life Scrapbooking Facebook Page, so I thought I would get the August 1-2-3 Sketch & Layout posted for you so you can play with it over the weekend! This month I’m featuring the new Memoirs and Memories Collection from Creative Memories with it’s fantastic neutral papers, variety mat cards, foiled embellishments, and stickers!
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 EIGHT photos in a combination of 4″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ sizes. Here is the sketch:
But make sure to watch the video since I’ll show you a variation of the sketch that features TEN photos! Grab your drink of choice and relax for a few minutes to watch!
Although I didn’t use any photos in the final layout I’m sharing with you, I love the way the neutral colours and the foil accents will work for lot of different photos! I created my embellishment clusters with the pre-made tags, stickers and some shimmery punched gear shapes made with the Gears Chain Border Maker Cartridge then cut apart into smaller gears. (All Creative Memories products featured are available through me or my Canadian personal CM website)
Here’s a closer look at the finished (but photoless) layout and a couple more details:
Make sure you head over to the OCM shop to get your copy of the FREE printable handout with the sketch, cutting guide and instructions! Which variation of this layout will you try? I hope you get to make both!
