sketch support one page #11 & a giveaway


Oh yeah, it’s giveaway time…again! I’d never had a giveaway on my blog until two weeks ago, and now I’ve had two! But you don’t care Smile  You just want the prize, right?

I have one copy of Sketches for Scrapbooking, one page sketches, volume 1 to give away this week!

That’s right, a sketch book for one-page designs! Brand new, and it features this sketch:


(Pop on over to Sketch Support to get your own FREE copy with all the measurements & details.)

But first, my take:


supplies: Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Flowers: Sassafras; Letter Stickers: Jillibean Soup & American Crafts Thickers; Stickers: Jillibean Soup

Yes, these are back to school pictures from last fall! Considering Olivia starts KINDERGARTEN next month, I thought it was high-time for me to get these photos scrapped! I’ve had the patterned paper from Crate Paper since last fall, waiting for me to be inspired :)

1) I changed the stars to flowers when I found these flower stickers sitting on my desk, and I omitted the swirl. I love the swirl, but couldn’t freehand one to my liking. Plus then I saw this phrase sticker when I was grabbing the “of” letters. It just worked for me.


2) I skipped the journaling on the upper left because I just didn’t have enough to say. But I did add a flower sticker up there to balance it out visually.


3) I used a fun little journaling spot from Jillibean Soup after starting to write directly on the paper & not liking it.


4) I added another fun word sticker from Jillibean Soup to go along with the flower here. It’s so nice to finally use some goodies from my stash!



So back to the giveaway…
