Two-Page Tuesday: Re-Using a Sketch

For this month's edition of Two-Page Tuesday, I've used the same sketch for both layouts. I love using a sketch more than once because the second page always comes together so quickly! This one came from the Sketch Support Class I took last summer. Finally getting last Christmas scrapped, better late than never...



By choosing different background cardstock, patterned paper, journaling method and title work, I made this second layout. The photo size and placement and the embellishments are the same. I'd like to be more creative and make my own custom embellishments. But for now, I used up the pre-made stuff already in my stash.

These layouts will go in different albums, so I doubt that anyone but me will know they are the same design, and I'll probably forget that at some point! But it wouldn't bother me one bit to place them side-by-side in the same album. So if you are catching up on your Christmas scrapping, you might want to consider using the same basic design for several pages to speed up your process!

  4. Great layouts! I always love 2 pagers. If they weren't side by side you don't even notice they are from the same sketch. I will surely refer back to this post on one of my future two pagers. Nice job!

  6. These are both fun, and honestly, had you not pointed it out, I don't know if I would have noticed they were the same sketch! Ha! I love the thought of using the same sketch though, especially when "catching up"

  7. Totally with you on re-using a design. I think it's the similarity of the photos in the second, compared tot he variety of photos in the first that also help make them look so different.

  12. Awesome layouts! I agree that with different papers and patterns, they are different. That's a great tip that the 2nd time you use a sketch, it comes together more quickly. And that's a great sketch! :)
