CLS Blog Hop – February 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout!


Hi friends! Wow, February has gone SOOOO fast, but today I’ve got the 1-2-3 Sketch & Layout for February as part of our Creative Life Scrapbooking Winter Blog Hop!  This is Stop #4 and you’ve probably arrived from Lisa Brown-Graham’s blog, but if you have missed any of the stops, I’ll have links to all of the blogs at the bottom of this post!

For our CLS Blog Hops we all choose different products to showcase, and I was excited to work with the brand new outdoorsy “Beneath the Pines” Collection by Creative Memories. It was perfect to use with photos I took of some “deer” little four legged visitors we had right outside our cabin door!

If you haven’t seen my 1-2-3 Sketches & Layouts before, they are a great way to get photos onto pages and into albums 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 SEVEN photos – two 6″ x 4″, three 4″ x 4″ and two 4″ x 6″ photos – and you can probably even fit another one or two in if you need to! Here is the sketch:


As usual I’ve got a FREE handout with the sketch, cutting guide, instructions and sample layout for you, but I also filmed a short video to show you how easy it is to cut the double sided paper and put the layout together. Grab yourself a beverage and kick up your feet for a few minutes to watch:


Easy, fast and fun, right? Here are the photos of the completed layout and details:


Make sure you head over to the NEW OCM shop to get your copy of the FREE printable handout with the sketch, cutting guide and instructions, and don’t forget to subscribe to the OCM Member’s Only Library – it’s chock full of free resources!
