Greetings! I hope you are all well and healthy and that things are starting to cautiously open up where you live! Here in Calgary we have had retail stores open for about a week now, and since things are going well and people are making sure to keep 6 feet apart to reduce contact, restaurants and other services will hopefully be starting to open in our area later this week which is great!
Today I’ve got the May 1-2-3 Sketch and Layout for you using Creative Memories’ True North Theme Pack. I love the Theme Packs because they are small scrapbook kits that have just enough paper and embellishments to create a few layouts around one theme. And of course when you use a 1-2-3 sketch to create a layout, you can stretch the limited supplies in the kit even further!
If you haven’t seen my 1-2-3 Sketches and 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 the sketch features room for SEVEN photos – five 4″ x 6″ portrait style and two 6″ x 4″ landscape style. Here is the sketch…
As usual I’ve got a FREE printable handout for you with the above sketch, the cutting guide, a sample layout and some general instructions that you’ll be able to download and print, but first watch the quick video to see how easy it is to cut the patterned paper and arrange the pieces for this easy, fast and fun layout! Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy!
Here’s another look at the finished layout…
Remember that you don’t have to use the True North Theme Pack to create this layout – try it with whatever double-sided papers and coordinating embellishments you have in your stash!
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 if you love sketches, consider registering for my year-long online course – SYS20/20 (Scrap-Your-Stash 2020) – where you’ll get sketches galore each month along with challenges and lots of inspiration to use up that stash of scrapbook supplies! Registration is ongoing throughout 2020.
