Hey crafty friends! I actually had some time to scrapbook recently and used sketch nine from the She’s Crafty Mini Paper Pad class that I started so very long ago. I ended up creating this Awesome Summer Hair boy themed scrapbook layout.
The sketch that was used this go around came from A Cherry On Top. I’m not sure it’s one that would have called my name since it has both hexagons and long strips. I changed it up enough that I was comfortable using it, but it was still a bit of a challenge.
The first thing I did was change the photo orientation to work with the orientation of the photos I wanted to use. I moved the 2.5 x 1.5 from long and on the bottom to right next to the other two photos. The photos I used are of our sons temporary blue hair from this summer. He loved it!
When I started putting the sketch together I actually did the hexagons as my first thing, and then fit the rest of the pieces around those. I thought if I started in the middle I’d make my square pieces to large and then not be able to fit the hexagons in.
As I was working on this I wasn’t so sure I was loving it, but in the end I really do. Now I need to go an do some more creating, or at least cleaning up of my space so I feel inspired. I really need to use this kit up too. I’m down to very few embellishments that aren’t words. Until next time….stay crafty!
