To help inspire us is our very talented guest designer Celeste Smith, from Connecticut !!
I live in Connecticut with my wonderful husband of ten years, Terry and our two cute boys, Adam and Sam. They are my primary scrapping subjects and my sometimes unwilling models. Scrapbooking is my creative outlet. As a full-time competitive analyst at a large insurance company, my days are filled with details and numbers. My evenings are filled with patterns, color and design. A real stress reliever! My style has been consistently clean and graphic with a bit of funkiness thrown in for good measure. I currently design for KI Memories, October Afternoon, Pebbles, Freehand Scraps and Write.Click.Scrapbook. I absolutely adore sketches and I was thrilled to participate her at Inspired Blueprints!
Celeste designed a great layout with the sketch and since she creates 8.5 x 11 layouts she has a great tip on how to convert a 12 x 12 sketch to accommodate an 8.5 x 11 page : "To converted the sketch to an 8.5 x 11, all I did was open the sketch in Photoshop and change the size to 8.5x11 - that basically just squished the proportions - then I printed it out and measured. Great tip for us 8.5x11 scrappers!" Here is Celeste's adorable layout:
Now for more inspiration from our fabulous design team ... enjoy all the variations on this fun sketch !!!
