CK Sketches: February 2010

Jennafer Martin


Narrowing down the number of photos you'll scrapbook on a page can be difficult, but this sketch can help. With five areas for 4" x 6" photos, you won't have to narrow as much and can scrapbook more photos. The sketch is versatile enough to fit even more--or less--than five photos too. Read on for five unique takes on this fit-more-photos sketch.

You Are So Loved by Kayla Lamoreaux. Supplies Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3; Patterned paper, accents and journaling block: Photogenic and Philosophie by Paislee Press Designs; Custom shadow action: Linda Satgast; Font: Tweed.


Design Tip: Fit Even More Photos

If you have more photos to scrapbook than the sketch technically calls for, don't feel limited--just add them in other areas. Kayla Lamoreaux creatively made use of the areas designated for accents and borders to fit even more photos of her adorable kids on her layout.

Great Help
Thanks for the sketches. Living in Argentina my only scrapbooking resources are the ones online!
So convenient!
Thank you for making the digital template available. It's just so easy and quick!
They DO help
I didn't realize I'd gotten into layout ruts until I started plopping a 3-ring binder full of them in front of me as I put the photos and elements down on the page. I'm a convert!
