One Layout Sketch – 5+ Possibilities!

I love a good layout sketch idea. Even better – when one is versatile and can be used over and over again with different papers and embellishments.

BONUS: a sketch that lets me use lots of the random goodies I’ve been hoarding for years!

This week’s YouTube tutorial is just that! I’ll show you 5 ways to use this simple, yet charmingly adorable, scrapbook layout.

I’ll also show you a few different ways to make your stencil and some tips for crafting with heavier items.

It’s time to dig out all those random letters, buttons, brads, sequins, or flowers and get to craftin’!

I used dozens of fabulous Prima Marketing Fruit Paradise flowers for the layout above. I just love these darling flowers.

The layout above was made using lots of darling washi tape! I’m always excited to use washi tape, since I love using stickers, and it’s basically a giant sticker roll. šŸ™‚

This layout idea even works with just cardstock – don’t have any extra embellishments lying around (ok, you know you do)? Doesn’t matter! Find a fun, happy print and die cut your large shape for a pop of happiness!

Hope you have lots of fun with this sketch idea. Be sure to check out my eBay shop for all these handmade scrapbook pages too and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for all things crafty!

I was so excited about this card! It really validated the years (and YEARS!) or hoarding washi tape! It was so easy and looks fabulous – that’s my favorite combo!

Check out my YouTube video about how to make darling backgrounds with washi tape.

Here is the printable too, if you’d like to make this same card (I printed this lovely retro lady 3 inches tall).
