Ever wondered how to use a sketch when you don't have the same sized photos as what the sketch calls for? Inspiration is great to have on hand from sketches but sometimes the photos I want to scrapbook don't fit exactly to what is laid out on the sketch. But if you like the sketch you can always switch up the photo size or even flip the layout around. A note about using different photo sizes than what is shown on the sketch, you might need to change the size of other designer series paper or cardstock in the sketch to match the larger or small photo. For my scrapbook layout, the smaller square photo didn't require any other changes other than the photo mat. 

These photos are from the day we picked our puppy Flynn from the litter of 12 puppies. There are more photos and some video I took that day but these 3 are the ones I wanted to scrap of that day. Plus taking pictures of puppies is hard to do, they move so fast! But what to do with 3 portrait photos? They were all portrait since I used my phone and didn't think to take any landscape photos. How do you arrange that many portrait photos on one page without trimming them down?

After sorting my large order of photos that arrived last week these fishing photos just needed to be scrapbooked! Sometimes you know what photos you want to scrapbook but other times you may not have either photos printed or taken yet. For either one, you can start with the scrapbook sketch. This 3 photo layout is one of my favourite to use and can be found in my 3 Fun Scrapbooking Sketches. To receive the sketches sign up by visiting

When you sit down to scrapbook one of the hardest decisions can be what design the scrapbook layout could be. Using a scrapbook layout you've created before can help you create your next layout. In this week's layout video I shared a layout created for last month's team meeting that I used as inspiration then created the Thunder scrapbook layout. This left-side page scrapbook layout is also one of my free sketches you receive when you sign up for my email list:
