Around the World - Sketches for Scrapbooking

I know that you guys get to see lots of layouts by me using our Sketches for Scrapbooking books but I thought it might be fun to see what other scrapbookers are doing with the books. After a search in the gallery at Two Peas in a Bucket for Sketches for Scrapbooking I found a lot of layouts. Here are a few I found.

"1st Grade" by Natasha

Look closely at this one! Natasha did an excellent job of adding all kinds of details. And I love the We R Memory Keepers stitched cardstock as the background. You can see more of Natasha's layouts in her gallery at Two Peas. In addition to her beautiful pages she also has a lot of super cute cards!

"Skipping Stones" by Carolyn

Carolyn's layout instantly caught my eye and stood out in the gallery. I love the colors, the clean lines, and the pictures are great. Check out Carolyn's blog and her Two Peas gallery, lots of great layouts to look at! Her attention to detail is great!

"Zachary" by Aracely

Aracely did such a great job of making our sketch fit her style. I love the large layered title and the colors go with the pictures so well. You can get a look at more of Aracely's layouts at her Two Peas gallery. Check out her "Black Belt Mom" layout, she has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do!

Do you have a layout the you made using our Sketches for Scrapbooking books? If the answer is yes and you would like to see them posted here then send it my way! There is no limit, send one or two or five, whatever you want to send to with "Around the World" in the subject line.

*I know that I've had several of you that have posted links to your layouts using our sketch book in the comments of my blog. I'll be searching through my blog comments along with galleries all over the web. :)

Hi Allison,

This is a great idea.I love to see other people's work and how they make your sketches their own. These are really good layouts that you just posted. I know you've seen some of mine so I will send them to your email. So when are you doing this every month? Thanks for giving us a chance to share our layouts.

What a great idea, Ali! I love to see what others are scrapping. OBTW, I mentioned your new sketch book distribution to my local store up here, and told them to look for you guys at CHA.

Allison Davis said...

I will post them at the end of every month. I'm glad you are emailing your layouts! :)

Amy, that is great! Thank you so much! :)

dawn said...

Sounds good Allison thanks for doing this for us. Also what sketchbook are you using for sketch week this month?

COOL twist. It's fun to see all the different takes on a sketch. It just adds to the inspiration!

Great idea! TFS!

Love your sketch books!!! I have noticed that some of your sketches have stitching on them( i have seen them on the sg blog and in the store) do you have templates that you use or is it free hand?

Allison Davis said...

Dawn, I'm keeping it a secret until Monday! I'm a stinker like that! :)

Shelley, most of my stitching is free hand. I do use templates from time to time but I really like the freedom that free hand gives me. I usually sketch out my design on a scrap piece of paper, lay it where I want the stitching to go, and then pierce the holes. Sometimes, if I'm feeling brave, I'll just sketch it directly onto the layout.

Hi Allison,

Waiting till Monday will be hard. I'm hoping to scrap with you next week since I only babysit one day it's an easy week for me. I will pull out a little of everything then to be ready. I can't wait!

That must be so cool to browse galleries and find people using your sketches. I am such a fan of your work and find myself using them quite often, as well.
