There is a story behind this sketch. It all began one evening when I was out cropping with a group of friends. I had packed some old paper scraps that I wanted to try to use. Among these scraps I found a tall, thin piece of Pink Paislee house-patterned paper that seemed like a good match for a trio of backyard photos. I put the photos and paper together on a layout, and my friends told me that they really liked the design of my page. I figured that if people like the design IRL (in real life), then it would be a good idea to share the design online as well.
|Supplies: cardstock from Bazzill; patterned paper from Pink Paislee; burlap from Canvas Corp.; alphabet stickers from Basic Grey; pen from Zig; corner punch from Creative Memories; household mini stapler.|
This sketch is very flexible. It works for cards as well as scrapbook pages. You can substitute patterned paper rectangles for some or all of the photo slots if you wish. That's what I did for the Thanksgiving card below; I used up a handful of scraps from a Doodlebug Design 6x6" paper pad.
I hope that this sketch inspires you to create some projects with scraps. Use the sketch however you like and have fun with it.
