Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - April 18, 2024 - Sketch

 Sneak Peak


Welcome to Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop - April 18th - Sketch.
Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! FB group consists of over 8,5oo members.
Some of these are demonstrators from all over the world who all LOVE to scrapbook
and document their everyday lifestyle for generations to enjoy into the future. 

We welcome anyone who wants to be inspired.
We are trying to encourage EVERYONE to join in the HOP's every month.
We prefer that you do have a Blog so that you can join the hop every month.
BUT you don't have to have a blog to participate in these monthly challenges
by submitting a photo to the Album of the Month after 2pm AEDT.
You can JOIN Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up! FB group here

This month we have Guest Designer Margaret Hammersley Spencer who LOVES Sketches.
Sketches take the hard work out of designing a layout. 
You can choose to flip it, rotate it
OR just make your version of the sketch.
Looks like a FUN Sketch with 3 photos, add some fun grunge/creative masks in the background.

You may have hopped here from Julia Quinn who is one of our design team members.

The thing I LOVE most about sketches is it allows you to interpret it however you like.
So for me when creating my layout there were a few things that stuck out to me.
The texture in the background and the 2 frames behind the frames.
I LOVE that it has multiple photos mats. 
I included a hidden journalling tab behind the largest photo that you can record all the details.


AS you can see there is not much to my layout, just a bit of stamping in the background.
I let the Bright and Beautiful Memories and More Cards do their thing..
KISS - Keep It Simple Scrapbooking.
