My sketch and sample layout for the Spring 2015 issue (yes, I said SPRING) of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine is up and on the website.
Here is the sketch:
Here is my sample layout:
I decided to sketch a grid design that can also be used by all the pocket page and Project Life scrapbookers. Actually, my friend Tasha inspired me because she now scrapbooks one 12 x 12 and one pocket page as her double layouts, so I incorporated this idea into my new sketch.
I used Heartfelt Creations “Celebrate the Journey” collection.
I think this collection is perfect for travel and trips, so I pulled out some older photos of my family’s European vacation from 7 years ago. This layout has photos from our travel through Spain, one of my favourite destinations of that trip.
For embellishments, I simply cut out some patterned paper elements and layered them.
I used May Arts burlap string to unify the page design. My journal spots are tags cut from a piece of patterned paper in this collection too. I distressed and inked the edges of mostly everything.
I also cut out the title from another piece of patterned paper.
Like the title says, this trip definitely was a “Journey of a Lifetime.”
I hope you design a layout using my sketch and submit it to the magazine! Click HERE to visit the Submissions page at the Canadian Scrapbooker website.
