I think you all know by now how much I L-O-V-E sketches. And I particularly love the sketch books and downloads from Scrapbook Generation. Their online magazine, Create, has been continuing to gain in popularity and I've been submitting (and awesomely, being published) about every other month lately. So here is the layout I had published in the August issue:
This sketch featured a nice large area for a title, and I chose to use a large patterned paper to feature a stamped title for my page (stamps are discontinued from CTMH). That awesome border is all made with stickers and chipboard pieces from the EPP All About a Boy line. I just added a few brads and some twine.
I love the pennant banner trend and hope it sticks around for good! A good way to use some paper scraps, and I added the B-O-Y pennant chipboard shapes along with a few gear stickers and twine.
The sketch called for a tag for journaling, so I used the center of a 3x4 "Project Life" style piece and trimmed off the corners. I just added the hole reinforcer sticker and some ribbon/twine. Easiest embellishment ever!
So, want to try your hand at some of their sketches? You can download them for free from their online store, and if you want to submit, the deadline is September 5. All submission instructions are on page 203 of the August issue of Create.
