Sunday Sketch


This week, we have a fun sketch by Nicole Harper. It has a basic design, with the grid of photos and patterned papers, but the banner adds something unexpected.


Notice Nicole's placement of her journaling and title. The title is nestled into one of the squares and the journaling is to the left of the grid. This is a great sketch to flip or flop, so have fun with it!

You have until Saturday evening to post your layouts to this thread. 2 winners will be chosen on Sunday to win $5 gift cards to Studio Calico.

The question has come up several times regarding using these sketches with non-SC products and that is 100% fine. We're here to inspire, so use whatever products you have and link us up!

I love sketches. I use them all the time and am always amazed how different the finished product turns out from the original. This is a great one :)

This sketch is great and it helped me use some product that I didn't think I would use - an added bonus to finishing another memory.

Here is my layout:
