Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hello everyone – Kim Gowdy here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.
Do you know what I LOVE? Sketches! Did you know that Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a fun Sketchy Challenge every month? That’s 12 sketches a year for as long as I can remember…saved between a NEW and OLD gallery…there’s a lot of inspiration in these galleries! Why 2 galleries? Technology! Our older gallery is no longer “stable” …what that means is it’s a great place for viewing but NOT for uploading new content!

So, although today’s layout share will find a home in our newest gallery, don’t forget to visit sketches from days gone by, they don’t expire!

The March 2018 Sketchy Challenge was a double page layout! A great sketch for story telling! I only had one problem…I haven’t done a double page in so long [mainly because my work space is too full!] so I challenged myself to turn it into a 12×12 layout! Bet you were hoping I would clean off my desk top! Nope – LOL!Creative Scrapbooker Magazine March Sketch / Sketchy Challenge

I pulled out my Crafty Girl collection from Simple Stories and turned the “timeline’ into crafty thoughts! I love that I was able to use so many of the awesome die cut pieces on one layout!Simple Stories Crafty Girl Collection and Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's Sketch / March 2018 Sketchy Challenge

I even used several die cuts layered to create my title/focal thoughts! Little parts and pieces tucked under and over each other make a great focal point!Simple-Stories-Crafty-Girl-collection-creative-scrapbooker-sketch

  1. Love the way you turned a 2-page sketch into a one page Kim! Love your LO! Also love this 2-page sketch. Like you, I love sketches and this one will definitely go in my file box.

    • Thanks Brenda! it was fun to play with and adapt this sketch! Though one day I’d LOVE to clean off that work space and use the story line on a double page! It’s a FANTASTIC sketch!
