#ThrowbackThursday: Two Ways to Interpret a Scrapbook Sketch

It’s #ThrowbackThursday here on the blog, and we’re traveling back to March of 2017 with a sketch challenge from a Virtual Crop! We asked one of our awesome blog contributors, Sarah, to use the sketch with the Full Bloom collection to create her version of it and give it her own spin. Ready to be inspired?

A scrapbooking sketch is meant to provide basic guidelines and helps to inspire new ideas! There are no exact measurements or “rules.”

Sarah’s Inspiration:

I was a springtime Bride. When I was a little girl I dreamed of a summer wedding, however, when the time came for my big day, spring felt right. When I saw the Creative Memories Full Bloom Paper I was instantly in love! This collection was the perfect choice for some of my favorite bridal photos.

What You’ll Need to Create This Layout: 

instructions

Step 1: Choose 3 pieces of Designer Paper to use for your layout. For my base, I choose a paper that was subtle.

Step 2: Take a sheet of Designer Paper and cut a strip of paper measuring 1″ x 12″. Then, using that same sheet, place the paper on the 12-inch Trimmer at an angle to your right. Make sure the tip of the paper touches the 4-1/4″ mark. Once the paper is lined up on the Trimmer, cut starting from the middle and push the blade in both directions slowly until your paper is cut. There will be part of the paper that hangs off the trimmer; make sure to cut very carefully.

Step 3: After your first cut in Step 2, flip the same piece of Designer Paper over. Using the opposite end of the page, turn so it faces the same orientation at the first cut. Make sure the tip of paper touches the 4-1/4″ mark. Once the paper is lined up on the Trimmer, cut starting from the middle and push the blade in both directions slowly until your paper is cut.

Step 4: Take your third piece of Designer Paper and cut it to measure 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Cut this piece diagonally down the middle to make a triangle.

Step 5: Adhere (2) 4″ x 6″ and (2) 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″ photos to the page as shown. 

Step 6: Adhere your triangle pieces to the page as shown, overlapping some of your photos.

Step 7: Use the leftover paper scraps to punch flowers using the Embossed Trio Flower Punch and adhere to the page using the Precision Point Adhesive Pen.

Step 8: Decorate your page using the Full Bloom Stickers, add a title with the letter stickers and journal as desired.

I hope this sketch inspires you! What collection are you going to use it for?
