Here is my layout that I created using the sketch:
Because my granddaughter was facing slightly to the right, I moved the main elements over to the left hand side of my layout, and moved the banner to the right. I kept the embellishments in the same place as shown in the sketch. This is an awesome sketch, and so easily adaptable! I used the KaiserCraft/Pickled Pear collection for this layout. I'm really happy with the way the layout turned out. We at Let's Get Sketchy would love for you to come and join us and share your work.
Do you remember in 2012, all the layouts I shared that I created for Stacy Julian's class "Twelve" at Big Picture Classes? We spent the entire year with Stacy exploring twelve topics that inspired us to tell more meaningful stories on our scrapbook layouts. I loved the class and gained so much inspiration and insight from Stacy. Now you also can learn the strategies we used, in Stacy's new eBook "Storytelling Strategies".
Stacy started her journey by choosing 12 key storytelling topics. Then she set an intention, (and set up a process!), to make storytelling a part of her daily life. In the end, she completed 144 story-rich layouts in just 12 months--one layout for each of her 12 storytelling categories every single month. Those categories are: You, Holidays, Places, Everyday Life, Rituals, People, Personality, Things, Family Stories, Seasons, Fun and Inspiration.
Now it's your turn! Let Stacy guide you through your own authentic storytelling process, so you too can discover and share important stories from your unique life. You can find the eBook here at a great introductory price.
