Hi everyone. Kim Watson here, I hope you are having a fabulous week so far? I know I am, especially as I heard some great news! Our special issue, The Scrapbooker’s Handbook, goes on sale Tuesday, November 26, 2013. Whether you are just starting scrapbooking or have created albums full of layouts, The Scrapbooker’s Handbook, will definitely have something you will find interesting, instructive, or just fabulous to look at.
When browsing though my copy, one of the features caught my eye: Sketches, found on page 45.
Even if you know good design principles it can be hard to fill an entire layout. That’s where CK Sketches come in handy. Sketches are a great jumping-off point to help guide your photo placement, amount of journaling, and overall page design. The super thing about this article is each example sketch has been interpreted by three designers. Each variation, coaching us how a personalized spin can give really varied results depending on your preference.
Let’s look at this sketch, found on page 48.
Keri on the other hand Transforms the sketch to suit a 12 x 12 page size incorporating larger embellishments and three square photos.
I decided to take advantage of the bonus sketches from this feature. They have been made available in the issue, as well as online for your personal use.
This is the one I selected and my interpretation, which is a Transformation of the original 12 x 12 two page layout into a 8.5 x 11 two page layout.
So if this has piqued your interest, know that the entire issue is jam packed with more helpful and inspiring features just like this one. So be sure to check your local stores or get it later this week from our online store.
