Each blog will share a project using one of the SG sketches as a starting point. You can find the sketches in their books and downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.
Before discovering SG sketches, I would often struggles with my layouts. I started scrapping in 2001, and I hardly have many layouts from that time until my daughter was born in 2008 . Most of them were not finished. This one is one example i created in 2004 that i never finished. I wasn't happy with it.. I decide to work on this and do a redo..
this is my sweet nephew who is now 10. oh, mine where did the time go?
here is the before:
Here is the after:
I use sketches for scrapbook, one page sketches, volume one, page 29 (if you happen to have the book). The supplies I used to create this page are: Martha Stewart photo corner punch, stamping up notebook punch, Karen Foster Painted ABC's sticker, Basic Grey Alpha stickers, 123 washi tape, Woodware craft collection star punch, Echo Park dots and stripes paper (yellow), Journal cards from stash, American Crafts the goods swing set, Jillbean Soup die cuts-little yellow stars and black/white twine. I just love how this layout turn out..
