Using a Sketch to make a digital template.

Hi Everyone,

I have a hard time believing that we are entering our final month of summer vacation. It has gone by way to fast and I haven't scrapbooked nearly as much as I would have liked. Or updated my blog as much as I would have liked either.

I thought I would share one of my more recent scrapbook pages with you. One of my favourite ways to scrapbook is to look through scrapbooking magazines and books and scraplift ideas that catch my eye. My two favourite idea books are "Creative Sketches for Scrapbooking" Volumes 1 and 2 by Becky Higgins. I love her style and the books are really well organized.

I also love looking at her sketches in "Creating Keepsakes" Magazine. At a recent crop, I was looking throught the June 2009 issue of Creating Keepsakes and flipped to the sketches pull out section for some ideas and found one I fell in love with.

I took sketch #15 from the sketches pull out (it was featured on page 80 of the June 2009 issue of CK magazine) and turned it into a Storybook Creator Plus template.

Here is a picture of the template I created as well as the scrapbook page I created. I have to admit I am not completely done my scrapbook page as I plan on adding my title using my Cricut die cutter as well as a few other embellies once the page is printed.

As always, I am happy to share my templates with you just leave me a comment and a way to contact you so I can email the page file.

Please note that this template file will only work with the Storybook Creator Plus Software.
