Another day, another layout, and another featuring The Paper Loft's Funkysaurus line.
With the popularity of Instagram, 4X4 photos are just as common now as 4X6 photos. While I typically reserve printing in the 4X4 size for my Instagram photos, I find trimming my 4X6 photos to this size is not only appealing, but allows me to fit more photos on a layout.
This sketch uses true symmetry to create balance as each page mirrors the other. This is useful too when you find a one page sketch you like but want to create a two page layout. Mirroring the page is a quick and easy way to alter a sketch to your needs!
I again used The Paper Loft Funkysaurus line for more pictures from our dinosaur corn maze adventure!

I am a big fan of sketches and have acquired quite the collection. I find them useful when I have a creative block and need a jumping off point. I also find that if I take them to a crop, I get so much more done since I can be chatting with friends and following the sketch at the same time.
As part of my crafting goals, I thought I would start documenting my own sketches and sharing them with the layouts I've been creating.
My first sketch is a simple layout that focuses on fitting multiple photos on a layout, in this case five 4x6 photos. By using large pieces of background paper, you don't hide the fun patterns!
I'm super excited to create some more sketches for both myself and to share!

With the new year one month in, I've been very successful in getting some crafting time in each day, even if only for half an hour.
The benefits have not only been getting more of my photos in my books, but I find intentionally setting aside some time for me each day is rewarding and puts me in a relaxed mood.
It also made me so happy to look at my photos from the recent season and I actually have scrapped all my Halloween season photos!

One of our favorite parts of summer is the wonderful foods that we share with friends and family! We try new flavors, sample seasonal fruit, and grill fun treats!
This year I wanted a way to document those recipes so we'll remember to try them again.
I made a keepsake recipe book using The Paper Loft Truly Scrumptious collection.The pastel papers are perfect for girl pages, spring and summer themes, and for here, sweet treats!
