I was incredibly fortuante to work with Debbie and Allison from Scrapbook Generation over the past few months and contribute 6 double page layouts towards their latest Sketches for Christmas sketchbook. I have always been a fan of their sketches so be able to use them and create visual samples for others to see was such an incredible honor and privelege.
There are 24 sketches and they are all double page sketches with exact measurements provided! Many of the sketches could very easily be adapted and used for single pages.
Of the 24 sketches there are;
- (1) 3 photo sketch
- (2) 6 photo sketches
- (7) 7 photo sketches
- (8) 8 photo sketches
- (1) 9 photo sketch
- (2) 10 photo sketches
- (1) 12 photo sketch
- (1) 17 photo sketch
- (1) 25 photo sketch
There are wreaths, ornaments, Christmas trees, stars and iconic Christmas symbols galore! There are lots of reds and greens, gold and silver! All tlhe fun things one would expect to see on Christmas layouts. Families opening presents, holiday baking, pictures with Santa, festive outfits and so much more!
Companies used include Basic Grey, Authentique, My Minds Eye, Bo Bunny, Simple Stories, American Crafts, Echo Park, Pink Paislee and many more! Twinery baker's twine featured heavily on a lot of my layouts as you can see from the picture above.
I had masses and masses of Christmas pictures that were all sitting on my hard drive just waiting to be scrapped. The one occasion that I have the most pictures of and least scrapped is probably Christmas. In those 6 layouts I did for this book, I put a good dent into Christmas 2013 and I can't wait to use more of the sketches to hammer out the rest!
This inspirational book is available for purchase HERE for $16.99 for the hard copy or $14.99 for the e-Book version. Buy a copy for yourself and while you're there, get your scrappy friends one too! They would make great Christmas presents!
You won't regret it, I promise!
