Write.Click.Scrapbook. Saturday Sketch

Special Note: There is still time to sign up for my new online class, "Perfect Your Scrapbook Process". The early bird discount is good through Thursday, September 26th. Class begins October 14th. You can check out all the details right here...

Every third Saturday over at Write.Click.Scrapbook. they post a sketch. This month, the collection of blocks for photos, title and journaling establish a wonderful foundation. Kind of a wonky grid, if you will. Here's my layout based on the sketch.

I altered the sketch a bit with my embellishment choices and I added a border. Small tweaks that make the page mine.

This is my favorite kind of title: words snuggled together with different colors, a couple of fonts, and a just little off kilter. Just a little.

The page is about a new Italian restaurant not too far from our house. It's fast becoming a regular hangout. Doesn't hurt that there is ice cream right next door, either. You can find the sketch, color palette ideas, and a downloadable cut file in the article here.

Here is my latest YouTube video, so you can see the process of how this layout came together, if you so desire.


  1. I'm hooked on watching YouTube process videos at the moment and enjoying yours

  2. Just got this collection of papers and I love seeing how you are using them!

  3. Such a great mix of papers and patterns, Sue. Gives the page a warm, cozy feel.

  9. Great layout, Sue! Love it! I just have to admit that I'm a loser when it comes to scrapbooking, my patience and I aren't in good terms. Kudos to all of you who do full-time scrapbooking. Still searching how to keep up with it though, hopefully this post I saw would help you out:
