{I}NSD - The Fabulous Forgers' Fantastic Favourites - Kelly's a-Sketching!

Happy {i}NSD! This day is definitely one of my favorite holidays! And since I love sketches, I'm sharing three of my favorite sketches with you.

The first sketch comes from the Scrapbook Challenges blog (where I am on the Design Team). I usually am a 1-photo-per-page scrapper, so I like how this sketch allows me to add several pictures to one layout.


Using this sketch, I created a page documenting a recent trip we took to visit my sister and her family.

Next up is a sketch from the Citrus Twist Kits blog. I am a big fan of their weekly sketches--particularly this one, which puts a photograph (or 2--see below) front and (just slightly off) center.

This page is the result of the sketch above. Instead of one large vertical photo, I substituted two horizontal pictures. 

My final favorite sketch comes from me! I love sketches so much that I have created a few of my own, based on my favorite page designs. This sketch is simple, but can be interpreted in so many different ways.

One layout I created using this sketch tells the story of waiting . . . . This is a photo my daughter took of me while waiting for the vet to come check one of our horses. Since I was facing in towards the center of the picture, I flipped the position of the photo and journaling block so that I am looking into the middle of the page. Such a versatile sketch!

I hope you are inspired by one of these sketches and create your own page with one (or all) of them.

Now go create!


If you’ve been inspired to create by any of our “Fabulous Forgers’ Fantastic Favourites”, we’d LOVE to hear from you over on our Link-up page.

Of course, you could also use this inspiration to join in with our member blog hop later in the month. You can find out how to be part of the hop on this help page or at the bottom of our regular challenges.

So be sure to let us know you're following along and how you're using up your kit this month.


  1. I'm always looking for good sketches - thanks for sharing a few sites! And I like the idea of making sketches out of your own layouts. That's a great idea too!

  2. You know me and sketches.These are all excellent ones.I'm putting this post in my favourites.
