One-Page Week, Part 3

••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Flipping the sketch is always a no fail solution to getting multiple uses out of one sketch. And you've got several ways to flip it: upside down, sideways, rotate it. Just think of how many times you could use one sketch with each layout looking completely different!

One-page Sketch #4


You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the one-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.


"Chew Time" by Katrina Hunt
Supplies - Cardstock: American Crafts; Pattern Paper: American Crafts (City Park collection); Letters: American Crafts; Stamps: Unity Stamp Company; Twine: The Twinery Bakers Twine; Die Cutting: Making Memories Slice; Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Fabri Tac, and Scotch Adhesives; Ink: Memento Ink

I love this sketch. I had thought about using the same picture over and over on the strip, but found these pictures when I was going through folders and decided to use them.

• Variation 1 - I flipped the sketch on its side, I just liked the feel whenever I tried it.

• Variation 2 - I flipped my larger picture, it was the way it would work with the sketch

• Variation 3 - I angled my backgrounds to the left side slightly. Doing this can give your page a different feel.

• Variation 4 - I added the fence and the tree, just to give the page a fun, whimsy kind of feel.

"Smooth Sailing" by Christina Hoffman
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Echo Park; Alphabet: Echo Park and Doodlebug Design; Jewels: Unknown: Tools: Cricut (Sailboat)

Variation #1 - I flipped the sketch.

Variation #2 - I used 4 x 6 photos in place of the 3 x 3 photos.

Variation #3 - I used a scallop strip instead of the striped strip below the background paper.

Variation #4 - I didn't like the title under the sailboats so I had to switch the placement of the title and my journaling.

I actually flipped this sketch for a layout yesterday, and created a second page to mirror it. Posted it on my blog this morning. Thanks so much for the inspiration.

Don't get as much of a wow factor when the sketch is flipped. Love the first page though from today!
