Sketch 18: Layouts

Happy Friday, and Happy August!!! It sure feels like August here with weather in the 100s almost daily! Hey, but that just means more crafting time in the air conditioning! Sounds good to me anyway! :)

We have a fun sketch for you today with a large block that can be used for a single photo or many photos. Elizabeth chose to use the space to put six small photos. And look at the different ways the designers placed their titles. Great inspiration from each of them. Here is Sketch 18 followed by six stunning examples. Enjoy! 12x12 Layout by Carrie

Sketch 17: Cards & Tags

Today we have six pieces of inspiration for you based on Sketch 17. Look how Marcee included adorable photos on her tag. And I love how Carrie used lace for the decorative edge instead of paper. Lots of great ideas here for you! I hope you will have fun using all of the inspiration for Sketch 17 to create your own fun pieces this weekend! Enjoy, and see you next Friday!

Have you noticed how quiet it is on various message boards this week? I guess everyone is at CHA having a great time without a lot of us! Well, we are going to go ahead and play here at Triple the Sketch while they are out looking at all of the new releases. We can still have fun here! And to celebrate CHA weekend, we not only have Sketch 16 for you today, we will have a special CHA Sketch released tomorrow along with an amazing RAK! I hope you will join us on Saturday! Now for this Friday's sketch, Sketch 16: The designers did four fun layouts for you with this sketch. And Elizabeth even did a two-pager for those of you that are wanting to do two-page layouts. Look how she flipped the sketch for the second page.
