January Sketch of the Month and PRIZE!

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Hello 2013! I am excited to shift gears this year here on the blog and try to provide you more ideas and inspiration than ever.

If you follow me or have visited before, you'll know that last year I offered a Kit of the Month each month with layout ideas, a 12 x 12 CM Additions pack and all the extra die-cuts and instructions needed to complete the projects. But since CM is reducing the number of new Addition packs they are releasing, I decided to discontinue the KOTM and instead provide you with a sketch each month here on the blog! I figure a sketch may be more useful to you than KOTM was, and it makes me happy to think that more of you might be out there scrapbooking!

I'll be posting the SOTM near the beginning of each month along with the prize for each month. Yes - PRIZES! Yay!

You'll have all month to create a layout based on the sketch, post it on your blog and link up to your post. Don't have a blog? No problem! Simply email me a JPG of your layout and you can still be eligible to win! On the last day of the month I will randomly pick a winner using a number generator and arrange to send off the prize to the lucky winner! How fun is that?

So, are you ready to have some fun? Let's go!

Here is January's SOTM:



Like most of my own sketches or page plans, its straightforward, multi-photo and has room for journaling. Its open for lots of interpretations, occasions and themes and I can't wait to see how YOU use it!

To get some ideas flowing, here is my own layout based on the sketch:

Remember I mentioned a prize? Well, to kick things off this month, I actually have TWO prizes! In honor of the inaugural SOTM, the first person to post a layout AND the randomly generated winner will both receive a LOVE 12 x 12 Addition which has four double sided papers, eight 4.5 x 6.5 photo mats and two sticker sheets!
 
 
 
 
I can't wait to see your layouts, so don't leave me hanging! When you are ready to share your layout, scroll to the bottom of this post, click on the little blue frog, then follow the instructions. Don't forget to use the link to the blog post that features your layout, not your home page. If you are emailing a JPG of your layout to me, make sure you have January SOTM in the subject line. You have until January 31st to enter - good luck!

  1. This is great! Thank you for the sample layout. I've often heard that photos work best on layouts when they are displayed in 3's. Have you heard of this as well?
