Sketch Round-Up Aug. 9-22

A scrapbook sketch is a starting point for a design, like a blueprint. It gives you a general idea of where to place photos, titles, journal areas and other elements. (But there is no law stating you can’t move the features of a page around — you have free rein!) Sketches come in varying neutral tones so that you can think about different hues and pattens that fit your style. It’s inspiration for your own creations! Today we have four sketches that we know you’ll make into custom concoctions. Have a go and have fun!

Scrapbooking is difficult.

MYTH BUSTED!

You can bounce ideas off other scrappers for innovative ideas and put your own creative twist on it or you can follow along to a T with online tutorials, videos, Project Recipes™ and many other step-by-step outlets. And here’s another instance that can help drive and promote easy scrapbooking opportunities — the Weekly Sketch Round-Up!

Sketch Round-Up June 14-27

We all set aside time for the things that are important to us, from our day-to-day career to personal matters. You make the deadline at work, the kiddos enjoy their sports and activities, we take the time to call loved ones, the laundry and cleaning get done (eventually!). Scrapbooking is just as important — as a welcome “me time” hobby and as a way to preserve important moments and history — so it should also be a priority, right?! So, if you feel like you need “permission” to start scrapping: HERE, you have our CM stamp of approval and endorsement! Take a look at these four awesome projects and try to add at least one (if not all!) to your to-do list this week!
