Sketch N Scrap: Scenic Trail Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! It’s another sketch layout day with Sketch N Scrap. Today I am sharing another outdoor scrapbook layout inspired by the sketch Heather designed on the blog today!

May 15th SNS

I loved the interest of the sketch that it is offset to an angle so in my layout, the placement can be a little wonky and offset. I do loved how the layout turned out.

I decided to use a cutfile for my background. It is called ‘Going in circles’ (it’s a free cutfile from Paper Issues) which I thought was fitting for our outdoor trip although we did not go in circles that much – maybe just a little! I diecut it with a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper Hello Love. I wanted to adhere it to a white cardstock but thought it was too plain, so I added some watercolors with some Distress Inks. After I adhered the die cut, I adhered my photo, and decided to embellish it with fussy cut flowers from a floral patterned paper from Dear Lizzy Documentary.  I may have gone overboard with the florals (lol) Then I finished my layout with my title that I cut with my Cameo.

Hop over to Sketch N Scrap and check out more inspiration from the design team members. I hope you will join us this month with our sketches and I do hope you are joining our Facebook event for Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash crop! We would love to see your creations!

“Warsaw Caves” Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Today I have a two-page scrapbook layout to share with you. This layout was inspired by a sketch on Scrapbook & Cards Today during the (inter) National Scrapbook Day.


I want to share another outdoor layout today and I am glad I can put it in a double page layout.

It was definitely a fun trip to the caves and walking along the hiking trail. I have to say we were pretty adventurous in this trip.

I used papers from the Dear Lizzy Documentary collection, and used journaling cards from Simple Stories. I diecut the leaves in white as subtle embellishments because I did not want the layout to get too busy. I also added other bits and pieces of emphera to complete the layout.  I was most excited to use my new gel pens for journaling. I had forgotten my love for metallic and glitter gel pens.

Traditional Scrapbook Layout on (inter)National Scrapbook Day

Hello and Happy (i) National Scrapbook Day! Every year in May, National Scrapbook Day falls on the first Saturday. So I hope you are having a fabulous day scrapping away! I want to share a layout with you inspired by a sketch layout designed by Lisa on Sketch N Scrap.

NSD may 6th

I created a traditional scrapbook layout. I personally called it traditional because it’s a simple layout where I just cut and paste things down without doing any techniques. Fearless Scrapbook LayoutThe photos are from last summer where we took a hike along a trail. It was a little dark in some area or a little too bright in some area of the woods so that’s why the photos are not too great. Perhaps I should have edited the photos before printing them out but it’s okay – I don’t need perfection lol

I printed the photos 3×4 size and followed the sketch as I create this layout. I chose papers and embellishments that are warmer colors since it seems like a good theme for the outdoors in the summer. Then I added a few stickers with the outdoorsy theme from Shimelle Go Now Go collection. Then it’s done.

Some close up of the cute embellishments –
