The Weekly Sketch — 2021 guest scrapbooker

March 2021 Scrapbox page layout

Posted by Linda Gransby on

Heres the final pages made by Sam Blundell using the Memories and Photos March scrapbox (you can order yours here) and 'The Friday Sketch' Ditch the themes.... Sam's school sports day pages are a good example of not getting caught up in themed papers and embellishments. Keep a good selection of generic printed papers in your craft stash in different colours, and you'll not need to worry about having exactly the right theme for the page, or having papers and stickers left over that you won't use

Page layout idea March 2021

Posted by Linda Gransby on

I really love this colourful layout from Guest Scrapbooker Sam Blundell.  She really uses the March scrapbox to the full and brings out the beautiful colours. Many Photos doesn't have to mean a crowded page Blank space is the element of design that enables the objects on the page to ‘sing’. It is the space that balances the design.  We don't need to create a layout overcrowded with text and images to deliver a clear message, but equally we can include many images without confusing the eye too.

Page spanning photos - Sam has done a great job of cutting...

Introducing our March 2021 guest scrapbooker....

Posted by Linda Gransby on

I'm Sam, and I started scrapbooking after having my first baby. I met a lady in hospital (Mel) who actually knew my mum from a craft group and she lived down the road from me. This friendship was meant to be! We got talking and she invited me over and encouraged me to make a scrapbook of my baby rather than a photo album. I started off really simple but have enjoyed trying different techniques over the years. My style has changed but I still enjoy doing “simple” scrapbooking which doesn’t require lots of fancy tools. I tend to take...
