Lately I’ve found myself in a bit of a rut, not in that I don’t feel creative enough to scrap, but in that I often end up with layouts that look very similar to one another. One way that I get out of a scrapping rut, is to use sketches. There are sketches all over the place online, and the Scraptastic Club has a sketch challenge each month, but my go-to source for sketches is this book:
|I love this sketch book (in hard copy)|
If you would like to purchase this sketchbook from Creative Scrappers I’ve got good news for you! Kristine Davidson is offering my YouTube followers and blog readers $2 off their purchase by using the code traceyb2 when ordering. Thanks so much Kristine!
Today’s layout was based upon a sketch from Creative Scrappers: Creating with Sketches Vol.2. Here is the sketch, which is found on page 10:
|From page 10 of the book above|
This is my layout, which does’t deviate very far from the sketch, and stays true to my goal for this page, which was to use up more of the space on the background paper than I usually use:

|I’ll explain the title in the process video below!|
|Below you will find my process video for this layout, but first, here are a few closeups of the details of the page:|
|If an embellishment does’t fit with your page, feel free to alter it! I added black outlining to this Ormolu flair badge.|
|I also altered this globe embellishment, but made it look altered on purpose|
|Journalling in a 0.005 point pen so I could fit lots in a small space without it looking crowded.|
Here is the video that show my process.
