December 2019 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout

I’ll bet everyone is feeling this way, but I just can’t believe that we are only a few days away from Christmas and ten days away from the end of the year/decade! WOW! With that said, it brings us to the last 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout of 2019!

This month I’m featuring the lovely Winterberry Collection from Creative Memories with it’s frosty papers, variety mat cards, laser-cut border embellishments, and stickers!

As you may 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 4″ x 4″ photos in a very dynamic and symmetrical layout. Here is the sketch:

Over the last few months I have been sharing the monthly 1-2-3 Sketches and Layouts on the OCM Facebook Page as Facebook Lives, then editing them for length to upload to the OCM YouTube Channel. If you’d like to see the entire FB Live, head over the OCM FB Page to watch (and make sure to Like or Follow the page and sign up to receive notifications when I’m doing a FB Live!), or, grab a cup of whatever you’re pouring to watch the edited version of the video below:


Here’s a closer look at the finished sample layout….

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!
