On the 1st Friday of each month, Tami Taylor gives you a sketch and shows you how she’s scrapbooked the past month. She’s also got prompts for gathering memories in the upcoming month so that you can get your photos scrapbooked “one month at a time.”
Aaah, it’s officially summer here in the northern hemisphere. This summer I intend to spend every moment living. I’ve already attended crops, conventions, retreats, parties, bbq’s, cook-offs and flat out just exhausted myself trying to squeeze every moment out of this summer. I hope you’re enjoying your season whether it’s summer or winter to the fullest.
Here’s how my month looked:
Are you ready to get this past month scrapbooked? Here’s the sketch and a few tips:
This month I needed some inspiration for the monthly sketch. I found this layout by Debbie Hodge and (with permission of course) I used it as a base for the sketch. When you’re in a design rut, it’s easy to get some help. You can:
- Look at your own layouts and find your ‘go-to’ designs. Challenge yourself to find a way to add a little spark to them and make them feel fresh.
- Try the Sept 2011 edition of Masterful Scrapbook Design – it’s all about Design Play .
