Happy National Scrapbook day! I’ve been looking over some of my older pages this week and I found one I wanted to re-visit in design. To join in the celebration with you, I turned it into a sketch and then created a new version to share with you here today.
While the sketch is for 3 1/2 x 5 photos, you can easily adjust the width and height to work for your photos, or even turn the sketch sideways. It would also work well to do a mirror image of the sketch if you’d like a second page to be added on.
supplies: October Afternoon “Fly a Kite” title stickers and patterned paper; Kaiser Craft blue patterned paper; Pink Paislee journaling ticket; Webster’s Pages glitter sparklers, trim, and vintage sparklers ; The Girls’ Paperie striped ribbon; Glitz alpha (round) stickers; American Crafts glitter buttons; Tim Holtz filmstrip; Sakura pen; unknown thread and misc. buttons
I used two 4 x 6 photos and two 4 x 4 photos in my new layout, and because of the patterned paper I used in the background I skipped adding a layer of scallop at the top and bottom and instead went my own way.
Whether you are cropping with friends or at home enjoying all the virtual festivities – I wish you a very happy National Scrapbook Day!
Thanks May for the fabulous sketch! In honor of May’s beautiful sketch and layout above, this hour’s giveaway is from October Afternoon (a brand which she used in the layout) and Lily Bee! Loads of vintage inspired goodness!
The prize pack consists of October Afternoon’s Thrift Shop collection of papers, and Lily Bee’s Three Little Bird Accent rub-ons:
Now doesn’t that just make you want to run over to Stephanie Howell’s blog for some delicious inspiration and start scrapping?
