August Sketch

Sketches are one of the easiest ways to get a scrapbook page done fast. It can be a starting point from which you can create something totally new, or you can follow it step by step and create a very similar looking project. Any way you choose to use a sketch is right, there really is no wrong way! It can be a great time saver and an excellent way to get projects done without spending a lot of time staring at a blank sheet of paper!

Every month I create a one page sketch to help me build pages for the calendars I make every year as Christmas gifts for my grandparents. That way by the time December rolls around all I need to do is add pictures and then I have finished Christmas gifts!

If you want to see previous sketches/layouts scroll down to the archives on the right side of the screen. I post one per month.

Here is this month's sketch:


A: 12” x 12” white cardstock
B: 4 1/2” x 11 1/2” swirl paper
C: 2 1/2” x 11” wave paper
D: 1 1/2” x 10” yellow patterned paper
E: 1” x 9” blue scallop paper
F: #8 tag (pink cardstock) cut to 4” long
G: 3 1/4” x 3 1/4” brown cardstock
H: 3 1/2” x 4” white cardstock
I: 1 1/2” x 2 1/4” flower paper
J: 1 1/4” scallop circle yellow patterned paper
K: 1 1/4” x 4” pink cardstock
L: 2” scallop circle flower paper
M: 1” x 2 1/2” lagoon cardstock

Supplies: Surf’s Up paper pack, Surf’s Up Assortment, Mini Clothespins, Baker’s Twine Paradise Assortment, Tim Holtz #8 Tag die, sanding block, daubers, Chocolate ink.





Once I have added pictures, I will put the title down on the pink tag and probably add some paint splatters or rhinestones scattered around it.

Thanks for stopping by,
