Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop!





Welcome to the very first Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop! I am such a fan of SG and their sketches I just had to be a part of the inaugural blog hop, and I hope you are having fun too!  If this is your first stop, you might want to start back at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link. Here is the list in case you get lost:

Scrapbook Generation blog - http://scrapbookgeneration.blogspot.com/
Tammy - http://www.tammygrant.blogspot.com/ You are here

As you know each blog will share a project using one of the SG sketches as a starting point. You can find the sketches in their books and downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.  Here's the layout I've created:


  (Products used: Pebbles patterned paper and cardstock stickers, October Afternoon journaling label, and My Mind's Eye Enamel Dots)

For my layout I used Sketch #2 from the new One on One Sketch Book by the fabulous Debbie Sanders.  It seems like I take a lot of single photos of my kidlets so when I saw that SG was coming out with the One on One sketch book I knew I had to have it, and it does not disappoint!  It has 24 fantastic sketches of single photo layouts along with color examples.  I love love love this sketch book and it has quickly become my fave of all the SG sketch books.  Anyhoo, the photo is of my son several years ago with his garbage truck collection--he was obsessed with garbage trucks and actually accumulated several more after the photo was taken!  The colors in the photo matched perfectly with the Pebbles Love You More Line, and I love the whimsical feel of the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by, next on the hop is Steffanie.  Leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store, totally worth it in my opinion! The winner will be drawn on June 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.  Good luck, and happy hopping!

  13. Very nice. I have never used a SBG sketch and just one photo, but then I'm a big multi-pic, 2-pager fan.

  14. I so love how you put the background papers at an angle! Such a neat, different look. That is the one sketch book I don't have; it is on my wish list!

  15. Really love your LO. I especially love the way your papers compliment the colors in the photo. I am also in love with the one on one book and can't wait to use it. I've been drooling over the sample pages in the SG store. The actual LOs are even more impressive in the store than the pictures in the book. Thanks for sharing.
