Allison Davis and Debbie Sanders' Sketch Books

I recently purchased volume four and volume five of Sketches for Scrapping by Debbie Sanders and Allison Davis. I love these books. I have so many layouts that require at least two pages. These really have kick-started my creativity. I've also used them to create one page layouts.

Here are some of the layouts I created with these sketches. Some of the photographs are a bit skewed, but I promise in real life they are straight. The sketches give the measurments for everything. It makes it easy to get a lot of scrapping done quickly - unless you are me and then you are still slow. I modified most of the sketches to fit my pictures, but it was sure nice to have a jumping off point.
The large soccer balls are messed up because I deleted the names of the kids.

I made the pink flowers with twistle - never get rid of old stuff - you might find a use for it. The centers of the flowers are ribbon rosettes.
Can you see the little school of fish? They even have a teacher - top picture on second page.
I hand cut the curious that is in red.
I hand cut the red lettering.
Hand cut title. The border is a flocked trim that is self adhesive.
