My favorite thing about using sketches is that one sketch never turns out the same way twice... or does it? Check out these two versions of a Scrapbook Generation sketch:
Pretty much the same, right? And that's what I love! We have two girls, two years apart in age. So last year, they both bridged in Girl Scouts. I had pretty much the same pictures for both of them, but of course needed a separate layout for each girl.
I had some Girl Scout papers in my stash in different color versions, so I was able to tailor the layouts to their level in GS. The only difference is the specific embellishments and title treatments I used, only because I had some Brownies products left over from another use.
Making a sketch do double duty like this is a real time saver! I really only had to plan the papers once, then grab the same ones from the other color version. Also, some of the pictures were identical, making placement and cropping faster. And since these will be going in two different albums, no one will likely even notice.
I'd love to see your results with this! Be sure to show me if you try making multiple layouts with the same sketch, and let me know what you think.
