Catch up Thursday

Camp Scrap Week Four

Camp Scrap was a class held last summer at Big Picture Classes. It was taught by May Flaum, who is one of my favorite scrapbookers. This was a really fun class in which May basically just gave us a ton of inspiration and fun assignments. There was a different type of assignment for each day of the week (journaling prompts, sketches, etc.). I completed almost all of the assignments, and loved all the layouts I created. The layout below was based on the sketch for Week Four. It was a two-page sketch, with lots of photos, which I love. Here's the left side:

And the right side:

Here you can see both pages together:

MPM 2 pg

Pink Paislee Patterned Paper
Basic Grey letter stickers
Prima and Creative Memories flowers
Cloud 9 Design Rain dots
Fiskars corner punch
American Crafts pen
DMC floss
button, metal accent, and brad

I love how many pictures I was able to fit onto the page, but I think they still have room to breathe. I almost always use a sketch for a paper page and a template for a digital page. I find that starting with a sketch or template frees up my creativity more than anything else. If I'm starting with a blank canvas, I just sit and stare at it for too long and can't make any decisions. Do you like to use sketches?

I love using sketches. I'm a little challenged when it comes to designing my own pages sometimes, so they are a big time-saver for me. Love that you were able to include so many photos! I need to do a layout like this!
