Check out this fun version from Scrappin Hard's Blog. She added a sun as part of her design by the title cut out,  it just made the cutest design for a zoo layout. Visit her blog here for close ups.


Sketch #114


here is my example using this sketch. I used all DCWV Vintage Collector stack and coordinating embellishments with some alphas from my stash. For details and close up photos, visit my blog here.


And I loved it so much that I did a second one! I used the Mr Big Stuff kit and add on kit  from Scraptastic and I only used one photo and used a bunch of the cute goodies from the kit rather than the hearts. I used the Feel Again Stamp set to heat emboss on vellum for the little label shapes. For close ups and details, visit my blog here.

Sketch #109 12x12

This sketch has lots of space for photos, it can be used for scrapping with pocket page type cards, and I have included 5 spots for square photos in case you need to scrap some of those instagram photos you have been taking :) For my example I have used MME Collectable collection papers and some Simple Stories Say Cheese stickers.
For close ups and details, visit my blog HERE


 And here is a page by Laurie Zeller using a fantastic number paper for the background - pretty fun for a numbered list type layout :) Visit Laurie's Blog Here for more inpsiration




2 page Sketch #18

I don't have an example for this one yet. I created this one for Disney Scrappers with instagram photos in mind.  Great way to get a bunch of photos scrapped and I kept it simple so you could add as little or as much embellishment as you like. I was thinking it would be great for parade photos or disney top 8 faves


And here is a fantastic example of this sketch by my friend, Laurie Zeller. Thanks so much! I love this sketch for a list. For more inspiration visit Laurie's Blog HERE.


 And here is another fun Disney example from Cheryl Even. It's just a great way to use alot of photos on your layout and still have room to journal or do a bit of embellishment.  Visit Cheryl's Blog here
