Sketch Thursday: 09.29.11

We are interrupting our inspiration week for our sketch Thursday! Thursday are so fun around here because it means a new sketch is here to work with and we love how easy these sketches make scrapbooking! A bonus for us each week is seeing what you guys create from the sketch! We love peeking at each entry every week!

This week’s sketch is based off of our incredible design team member, Leslie‘s 21 layout! I love her use of a large photo – this has to be one of my favorite scrapbooking techniques! Large photos are so much fun to scrapbook with and embellish, too!

This sketch has room for one large photo and lots of embellishments – however it’s totally up to you how you complete the sketch! Let’s take a peek at how one of our design team members interpreted it:

Laura played with the sketch and chose to flip the photo vertical, but kept with the sketches idea to tuck in an embellishment at the top and have one going across the bottom!

Elle’s Studio products used: Handmade Layers Date and Place Strips, and Handmade Layers Large Journaling Tags.

We adore it, Laura! What a great take on this sketch!
