What Is A Scrapbooking Sketch?

A scrapbooking sketch is a drawing of an idea for a page or layout.
The sketch presents a proposed placement of photos and embellishments on a scrapbook page.
Scrapbooking sketches are intended as a guide or a starting point for you to create your own page.

Using A Scrapbooking Sketch

Sometimes a particular sketch idea will not work exactly for your photos and available embellishments.
Perhaps your photos are landscape instead of portrait, maybe you donít have exactly the right embellishments or perhaps you donít like to journal on your pages.
This doesnít mean you canít use the sketch idea. It simply means you have to be a little creative!

Awesome challenge....I love sketches....This way I don't have to use my brain as much...LOL....
One question, are we to use only stuff from SBM to make our layouts?

07-14-2010, 12:35 PM
nope you can use anything you like to create your page :)

07-14-2010, 08:08 PM
Wow, Am I actually the first one to post a LO for the mid month challenge?? Cool :) Love the layout idea, thanks for the inspiration!! I love to scraplift. It's the biggest battle, trying to get just the right lo for your photo.
This one turned out a bit busy, but I'll try another one later during the week.

Great challenge by the way! Oh I tried to get color swatch one and three, but couldn't get it quite exactly to match.. but I think it's close.

beautiful pages kimmy, i love the total uniqueness of each of these pages :D

07-16-2010, 09:22 AM
Great layouts all, and Kimmyann, we must be on the same page as I had marked down Michelle's Stand By Me kit to use too.

07-16-2010, 01:44 PM
LOL......Makeyesup, sorry!!! When I saw the Color Swatch, I thought that was a pretty close match to Stand By Me..... so I compared and Yep!!!

But I know your Page will be totally different from mine, even if we did use the same kit and the same Lift Idea!!!
