Two-Page Tuesday: Using a Sketch

You can download and print this sketch over at the Sketch Support blog

Allison's two-page sketches are my favorite. I love having the design work done for me, especially when I want to showcase multiple photos on a layout. Her sketches are so easy to adapt to whatever I have!
I really like the sketch as it is, so my alterations were minor. Since my photos are colorful and bold, I decided to go with more muted colors for my paper. Cosmo Cricket's Odds & Ends fill the bill, with a vintage feel suitable for my Greenfield Village winter scenes. I just love the old-fashioned cars and the dresses those carolers are wearing!
Several members of the Sketch Support Creative Team adapted this sketch to single page layouts, which you can see here. Great variety from one sketch!


I've created a separate page on Facebook for Life and Memories! I'm planning to use it for: 
  • links to my blog posts 
  • photos of scrap projects in progress
  • snippets of crafty conversation
I'd love it if you would find the icon in my sidebar and click the little "Like" button. Many thanks to those who have already done this!

  1. Now that's a proper Victorian Christmas! I love that border you made along the bottom - I shall have to remember that idea.
    That sketch is very reminiscent of Shimelle's 4X6 Photo Love LO for May last year with five photos.

  4. Love those little scallop strips on the bottom with the brads. A beautiful border that supports the photos. Looks like a sketch that could be used again and again. TFS!

  18. Do you mind if I pin this layout on pinterest?
    I have Sketch support sketches pinned but this is a fabulous example of what you can do with them.

    I love the border and would like to save it to my boards.
