Heather's Sketch & Template #9

Good morning everyone! It's Heather again, and I'm here to share a sketch and free template with you. I asked a few of my friends to contribute inspirational layouts for this post. I ended up liking the sketch so much that I made a few pages to share as well. You will find the sketch below. Please feel free to right click on the image and then click "Save As" if you would like to save the .jpg to your computer for later use.

Michelle contributed this page of her kids playing in the snow. I really love how she changed the sketch to work with the photos she had. I also love the misting on the blue paper and the super adorable snowmen!

The next page is by Amanda Johnson. She stayed pretty close to the sketch design, but she enlarged the title and that makes it have so much more impact! I also really like the way she added the brad to the wooden banner in the upper left corner.

Juliann did a wonderful job converting the sketch to 8.5 x 11 so it would work with her scrappy style. I think the way she overlapped the letters is really neat. I also love how she double matted the photos!

I am inspired by the way Jessica left the centers in the alphabet letters.  Her design choice really helps them stand out a little more on her blue background. She also cut a flower diecut so it would look like a cloud. That's such a good idea! 

Thank you all very much for using my sketch! I really appreciate your help and creativity. 

I created the next three pages. The first one is a paper page. (*All of the paper layouts in this post were created with supplies from Scraptastic Club kits!) I loved being able to use lots of different embellishments on this layout. The Prima flower was my favorite accent. It's just so pretty!

I also created two digital layouts using products from Becky Higgins and the other fabulous designers at Jessica Sprague's website. This page was for my Project Life last year, I was able to fit seven photos on one page!

This is the second page. Again, it was a page that I included in my Project Life. I used it twice because it was an awesome way to cram a ton of photos on one page. Don't worry, I didn't put them side by side in my book so no one will ever notice!

I followed the sketch and template pretty closely on my pages. It made scrapping go much quicker. That's one of the reasons why I love sketches and templates so much!

  5. All your 4shared links ask for a password... I just thought you should know. Maybe you accidentally set one in your account.

    Lovely templates, really helpful too, that you're sharing here.

  6. Mec,

    We had an issue with this on the last template, that's why I've added the Box link. I'm in the process of transferring everything to Box. I've been in contact with 4shared and I've gone over my account several times and can't find a single instance where I added a password. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. It's also only doing it to certain people. I'm thinking it may be that they're requiring people to sign up now if they want to download. Again, sorry for the issues and I'm working on switching over. Did you have any issues with Box.net?
