Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to the first EMS sketch of 2014. If one of your goals for this year is to get some scrapbooking done, you've come to the right place for inspiration. This month's sketch features 7 photos in an assortment of sizes, but feel free to change them up to whatever works with your photos. You have until January 31st to create a layout based on the sketch, post it online, and then link to this post. I will choose one scrapper's layout to be featured on my blog on February 5th, and that person will be invited to be a guest designer for the following month's sketch. Let's see what you can do!
Check out what guest designer Amanda has done with the sketch; she stuck with the original structure but adapted a few of the picture sizes, plus she took advantage of the banner areas to create little scenes that reinforced the theme of her layout. Thanks for sharing this darling layout with us, Amanda. If you want to see more of Amanda's work, check out her Splitcoast Stampers gallery!
Please link your completed layout here by 1/31/14 at 11:59 pm PST!
