Fast February | Part II

Posted on

The final two layouts I made with this kit—Bee-lightful–and the sketch are both double-page spreads.

For this page, I combined my chosen sketch with a sketch from Citrus Twist Kits that included two square photos that I thought would complement my sketch. I liked the clean lines of the design, which would go well with the simplicity of the original sketch.

The photographs on this page are from a recent walk I took with my kids in our woods. I am always amazed by the beauty of the forest even in the dead of winter!

Finally, I took the sketch and paired it with a pocket page.

I had several Instagram photos on my phone that simply showed what our life has been like over the past few months. Using the sketch and a pocket page, I was able to get all of these pictures in a spread quickly and easily.

This kit and sketch were “bee-lightful” to work with! I am looking forward to another kit this month. I hope to do more scrapping during March!

Now go create!

Sketch + Pocket Page

A great way to add more photographs to a layout without creating a double-page spread is to add a pocket page. Pocket pages come in so many different varieties these days, so adding one to a layout to include more pictures is quite simple.

For this layout, Meals We Shared, I wanted to create a layout using the many Instagram photos of food that I snapped over last year. I picked one of my favorites and used it as the photo on my actual layout. I deviated somewhat from the sketch, using a 4×4 picture instead of a 4×6 to keep with the Instagram style.

I added a page protector that has one row of 4×4 photos. This first view shows the page protector closed with the layout.

This second view shows the page protector and layout open.

When you have several photos you want to scrap at one time but don’t necessarily want to make a two-page layout, adding a page protector is a wonderful solution! It’s easy, quick, and showcases your special photos.

Now go create!
