Designing with Sketches

I'm a little behind sharing some of my Sketch Support pages, so I thought I'd share them with you.

Here's what I did a couple weeks ago:

The sketch was one page, but I had a bunch of 2.5x2.5 photos left over from last summer, so I put them together onto a two page 8.5x11 layout.

I have to admit: when I laid the photos onto the white background, I had to take a photo and tweet it.  The combo just looked so cool!

I used my January Studio Calico kit for the page.



When I made the banners (which I did just by eyeballing it), I decided to add some random green buttons, since I had a lot with the kit.

Sometimes, if I want typed journaling, I print it in the same color as the background paper. In this case, I also inked it with Jenni Bowlin Chicken Feed ink.

And here's what I did this past week:

This was based off of a card sketch. When I saw it, I though of an 8.5x11 inch page and thought it would be perfect for a page about myself. And so I made it. I used the same kit for this page.

When was the last time you made a page about yourself and what you love (aside from family and God)? I challenge you to do it right now!

I absolutely love those banner backgrounds - awesome idea! In fact, I love everything about your LO! I haven't scrapped anything about me in about a year - sadly, I haven't done much scrapping at all lately. I need to take care of that!
