Sketch Week, Part 3

The day three layout takes on a completely different look from the previous layouts. It's a completely different style of papers and I really changed things up with this one.

The sketch that I'm using as the starting point for all five layouts this week.


This sketch is now available to download and print. To access it you can click on the orange "downloads" on the right side bar of my blog.

Layout #3 - "Oh Brother"


Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Alphabet stickers: American Crafts (oh), KI Memories (brother), and My Little Shoebox (quotes in the bubbles), everything else: My Mind's Eye

I'll start with the photos first since there are actually three different photo variations on this layout. The most obvious difference with the photos as a whole is that I took a 10 photo sketch and turned it into a 16 photo layout.

• Variation #1
Just like yesterday's layout, I used two larger photos in place of the four wallet size photos on the sketch. I have tons of photos of Drew and Jackson together but very few are vertical like the wallet photos on the sketch. Substituting a larger horizontal photo in place of two smaller vertical pictures ended up being an easy solution to my lack of vertical pictures.

• Variation #2
In place of the three 4 x 4 photos on the right page I used a collage of smaller photos. I have so many pictures of Drew and Jackson together and wanted to include as many I as could on this layout. I love that the pictures are a mix of fights and laughter, some happy some sad. They are so back and forth. They can be screaming at each other one minute and then the next they are giggling together.

Wallet size prints are perfect for including smaller sized photos on your layouts. It's so much easier to crop a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" print to a 2" x 2" than trying to get a 2" x 2" out of a 4" x 6". Most of my pictures are close up and frame the subjects without much empty space. That can make it difficult for cropping photos. With the wallet size you get the whole picture in a smaller size so you don't need to do much or any cropping. I get mine printed through walmart.com.

• Variation #3
The five larger photos on the layout are similar to the photos on the layout yesterday. The only difference is that these aren't 4 x 6. They were all cropped from 4 x 6 photos. One reason I did this was so that the photos didn't cover up too much of the large star. With the 4 x 6 size you couldn't really tell that the is was a star.

Another thing to note about using smaller sized prints than the ones suggested on the sketch, it's one way you can use the sketches for smaller sized layouts like 8 1/2" x 11" or 8" x 8". It's just a matter of shrinking everything on the page to fit the size you need. I only reduced the size of the photos but the same can be done for all the elements on the page.

• Variation #4
The subject of shrinking carries on to this variation too. I used a smaller striped strip across the layout than the one suggested on the sketch. Once the smaller photos were arranged on the page I thought the smaller strip just seemed to go better. Plus I didn't want to cover up too much of the large patterned paper star.

• Variation #5
This isn't the first time you've seem me use a large patterned paper star on my page! There is something about it that I keep coming back to and keep using it over and over. I thought the star would be a fun way to change the look of the layout and of course it fits perfectly with the boy theme. It still sits in the same area as the die cut patterned paper piece on the sketch it's just a different shape.

• Variation #6
When it came to the embellishments I was determined to use the cute little chipboard monsters from My Mind's Eye.


The difference in the size of the two pieces were perfect for my brothers theme. For a fun touch I added the quote bubbles with things I often hear Drew and Jackson say (or scream) when they are together. This is obviously larger than the two circles suggested on the sketch but with them being in the same area as suggested, it keeps the layout balanced.

• Variation #6
Again, I could have used journaling strips as suggested on the sketch but instead decided to write my journaling directly onto the page. It's still in the same area as suggested on the sketch, just in a different form.

Day three = your third chance and the My Mind's Eye and Sketches for Scrapbooking giveaways! :)

Holy heck! Love this! Love the colours and the papers and all the photos you got on! Thanks for sharing your sketches and layouts. Awesome inspiration :)

Rojoscafe said...

I feel like a serious groupie, following your posts and dying for the next layout. Are you feeling like a Rock Star yet, Allison? Love that you incorporated so many pics. Thanks for making your sketches downloadable (is that even a word???).

nina said...

Love it! I especially love those little quotes - sounds just like my 2 guys!

Brenda Johnston said...

This is such a happy layout! I love the monster comments!

Erin said...

Love, love, love the vertical collage!!! I'm going to have to try this on a layout of my own!

Scrappinwendi said...

You totally amaze me in how you can make this sketch into totally different layouts. I would never have thought to use a huge star. Cant wait to see what is in store for tomorrow ;)

Julie said...

Such a fun page. Love this paper!

mmspiker said...

How did you fit in 16 photos? That must be a first. When I look at samples online, it is mostly one or two photos a page, so it isn't realistic when making my own page at home. Thanks for the inspiration.

Sue, a.k.a. midwestgirl said...

Sixteen photos, seriously. Looks amazing. Loving your sketch variations!

scrapinbabygal said...

My favorite variation so far!! I just LOVE what you did w-the 4x4 section!!

Christine said...

what a cute boy monster layout!

Amy from KC said...

I love how you find new and unexpected ways to work in a large piece of shaped paper into your layouts. A lot of times I can see where one could be utilized, but in this sketch it was a total surprise. I have to go back and look again to see how you managed to fit in 16 pictures and a large shape in the same layout - with a good amount of white space left over. Seriously, you are superhuman right now...a scrapbooking superhero!

Lorraine said...

Thanks for your comments on my blog much appreciated coming from you. I also have all your scrapbooking stetch books and love them I am a great fan.

Oh, my the life of having 2 sons, I know it so well. That little phrase of he hit me, no it was him rings in my ears as I look at your layout. Well mine are now 15 and 10 and they still say that. LOL

Judith said...

Love how you've used so many photos. This would be perfect for my many travel photos.

Very cute and thanks for the tips on incorporating the different sizes of photos.

Such a cute layout! And I love how you used both happy and fighting pictures, that's life and life is what we should scrapbook.

Stella said...

You sure managed to squeeze in a bunch of photos on one 2 page spread! I love the way you do that!

jane-e said...

It's great to see a mega-multi photo layout! So often I have WAY too many photos to narrow down. Inspired by your ideas yet again :)

Anna said...

This is a great sketch for including lots of photos. Love the big star too.

AmyInKy said...

As a mom of two boys, I think this one might be my favorite so far this week. I just love seeing all the photos of your two together. The monsters/quotes are so fitting! I think I'm going to use this star idea for my son's all-star baseball team photos.

Nancy said...

Loved this one too! I especially liked the speech bubbles that were cute as can be!

Sonya said...

What a great way to highlight your boys' relationship through the years in one layout!

So Cute! Love the little monsters with the word bubbles! It is amazing how many photos are on this page but it still doesn't feel over done.

debbi said...

Love the star, the stitching and the cute, colorul paper. Most important, your boys will love this page when they are grown!

Jody B. said...

Another great layout. I love the star. And that new MME Paper collection is fabulous!

Jennifer said...

How awesome that you used 16 photos here! This would be easily adaptable to a big photo event like Christmas. Love the little monster guys too. :)

nanapatty said...

You have captured the boys relationship so well with their personalities shining through. Great job.

joel & ginny said...

Laura said...

I don't know how you keep coming up with these great pages. You are just so very creative!

kroller said...

SOOO cute! This would work great for my 2 boys...I have lots of monster papers for those scary moments of motherhood! LOL Love the change-up...never get tired of that star!

Debbie Cornish said...

I like how you made the 4x4 areas look so different with all mini photo's.
I love the paper choices you used.

KGBELL said...

I am so scraplifting this! I have two boys 4 and 1 1/2 and this is so them. I was just looking at all the photos I have of the two of them and this is a perfect solution. You have such beautiful pages!

GLOANN said...

Another great LO from your sketch. Love that big star and those bright, colorful papers. I recently cut me a star template that will be perfect for this. Thanks and I'm so enjoying this week with you, Ali.

ruth said...

I love how different these all are! Excellent pages!

Danielle said...

I think I just found the sketch to use for my Christmas photos, which I always have tons of. So this amazes me that I didn't see this as a possibility yesterday or the day before with the same sketch. Genius - this whole concept of stretching your sketches and showing us the different variations...just genius.

AmyBug said...

I love how you fit soooo many pictures in this and how you changed some of the vertical wallets to horizontal 4x6's. The two little monsters are soooo cute. I "need" that chipboard if you KWIM!!! I love the fun boy colors and also how you fit the good times & bad times in the layout as that is more true life.

Jennifer D. said...

Fantastic page with 2 great little subjects!! Love the monsters!

Jody M. said...

Oh My! Thank you for the tip about printing wallet sizes. I too shoot close up and find it difficult to crop. Love this tip. I always learn something following you! :)

Kristina said...

I love how many photos you got on this layout. That is always my biggest challenge: too many photos to fit! I almost ALWAYS crop mine down to make them all fit. Can't wait 'till tomorrow's layout!!

julie.schellin said...

what a layout! 16 photos on one page - that's my kind of layout!

Amy Powell said...

I love the two chipboard monsters and the bubbles you created! I have two sons, and the cute monster chipboards would fit them perfectly :)

I like how you explained your creating process today - like why the stripe is smaller, etc. Love the monsters and their sayings.

Scrapthat said...

Love these papers too!! Ooo I need me some MME...when don't I?
I really love the substitution of the star...your variations really help to make me think about the sketches and how to stretch them!
I also love the pic variation...again you help me to "think" (LOL good for you Allison! LOL)
TFS-PS I love all the pics of your little guys...I still adore the pic of Jackson in the cap! So cute!

CodyandTraci said...

What great variations today. I feel like I am a winner every day of sketches week because I "win" so much inspiration. I still would love a sketch book and some MME though:)

Another great variation. I love how you used the big star - I'll have to try that - I have two boys as well and sometimes still sound like that (they just turned 13 and 16!!)

Mary Ann said...

Love the stitching, and did you use a metalic thread? I also love the way the embellishments help tell the story of the pictures. Mary Ann

Michele Mc said...

You have outdone yourself with the number of photos! With two girls (and tons of photos of them together), I'm sure I could do something similar. I'm also thinking that the large star might work on a LO about a recent dance recital. Love the colors, great ideas all around!

abbeyviolet said...

This is my first sketch week and I am loving it!

Lisa and Eddy said...

You soooo inspire me to work on the little details more. All your inking, stitching...it really pulls it all together!

Janice said...

Great way to show off lots of photos, yet the placement compliments them, they are not overwhelming. Another inspirational layout - thanks.

Cindy Leggett said...

Sixteen photos on one layout. You amaze me. What is even more amazing is that you acutally have sixteen photos to use on the layout. Since my child is 19 and I am so far behind in scrapping his memories, I am lucky to have 5 or 6 photos to scrap of an event. Thanks again for sharing.

Patricia M. said...

OMG! Those LOs are so stinkin cute. I don't have much time to scrap at the moment, but I sure am enjoying seeing all of your LOs. I am still amazed at how many pictures you can fit on one page without it looking totally crowded.

wendy said...

The more pictures, the merrier! I can't believe you fit 16 on there. And I thought I always got a lot of pictures on my layouts.

tape said...

What a fun and colourful layout!

That's a lot of pictures on one layout sister! I am super impressed!

Love the color scheme and the little monsters. I might have to get some--not because I have a layout in mind for them, but just because they make me smile.

Bettyann said...

Oh, I LOVE the Day 2 LO! But most of all, I want to tell you how much I appreciate the sketches week, and how you take so much time to describe the changes and the reasons for the changes. It really helps me see what I could do on my own layout.
