SG June Blog Hop


Hello, I hope you are enjoying the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop. If you this is your first stop you can go back to the to the start HERE. Each blog will share a project using one of the SG sketches as a starting point. SG offer a fantastic range of sketchbooks and individual sketches to keep you inspired at the scrap table. "Scrapbook Generation sketches make scrapbooking a breeze! Don't spend precious time moving pieces of paper around on the page. Let Scrapbook Generation sketches do all the heavy lifting, while you have all the fun." You can find the sketches in their books and downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.

They also offer a free sketch each month so you can try them out. For this hop I used one of the free sketches from April (I chose this one so if you would like to try them out you can use this one). 
Those who are a regular to my blog know that I am a sketch addict. They are my absolute favourite way to start a page, but when I first started scrapping I took the sketches very literally and didn't "colour outside the lines" but that is the beauty of the sketch you can do that if you need a template to follow or you can turn it, twist it, flip it to make it your own. I have made a few changes to this sketch, for example this was originally a sketch for 5 photos and I moved the embellishment on the right down to the bottom of the page. 
Thank you for stopping by, the next stop on the hop is Sheree, make sure you leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be draw on 10 June.

  9. This is such a nice layout! I really like the colors of the photos and how are letters are the same style, but different in color. It's such a nice, cohesive look. I also like how you adapted the sketch to fit your own style.
