A question - and any suggestions welcomed!!

Postby sherelm » Fri Sep 15, 2017 11:03 am

My question is - do you have a sketch you love with simply 4x6 photos on it (or a layout)?  I need to put two albums together one baby boy, one baby girl, and give them to the Mom - same mom - as a gift from my sister.
Catch is, she is not providing any photos, so they are to be simply girl or boy pages for each album.  Any ideas?  Right now, I figured I'd stick only to 4x6 and have Shimelle's layouts from "4x6 photo love" but a lot of them are the photos covering background paper, and layered in a way I can't.  I am adding white paper that says "4x6 photo" that can be removed easily to each page, and then I can even include a mat behind them.  But I have to be careful she can at the very least slip the photo in. 

Anything I'm missing, and you can add - hey - add away -  I'm going to try and hit this hard this weekend.  Thanks!! (BTW, Boy baby shower is in 3 weeks, no pressure)  Oh, and my sister purchased $200 worth of baby supplies from ACOT so I'll be ready forever!! lol

Sounds fun, baby stuff is sooo cute, and its extra fun that you can do both pink and blue. I would love to do a baby girl album sometime. 

One of the sketch site has sketches for 4x6 photos, at least I kind of remember that, but I can't remember which one. Definitely not pagemaps.

I don't know if you can see my link or not, but I went to Pinterest and typed in 'sketches 4x6' and a bunch of sketches using 4x6 photos came up.

edited.... it doesn't exactly look the same as I pulled up so you might want to do your own search there.

I agree with Deanna - I go to Pinterest a lot for sketches and ideas.

I, also, use google images to look up sketches, etc that use certain size photos.  Hope that helps

Thanks Becca. I think I've downloaded a lot, maybe I'll try just baby stuff now.

Oh, my sister wanted to know if I could make a baby quilt by then, too.  OMG

if only Dolly knew how famous you guys have made her already!!

Yikes, that's a great idea!! Using photo corners!  Caitlin is a "can't make up her mind" kind of gal, and so she'd appreciate that, too, I think.  

At lunch I also thought of robbing our gallery my searching baby pages in there!!

Sketch Savvy uses quite a bit of 4x6 on their sketches - not all of them, but they do a fair number.

Sounds like you've got some ideas already, but I'd suggest you rotate the sketches you have 90 degrees and use them 4 times. That might add some variety while keeping some layouts similar...

Also, add doilies. They're adorable on baby pages. They add texture without bulk and are cheap embellies... faster than punching also...

I believe I have a book of 4 x 6 sketches...maybe by Becky Higgins?  I use it fairly frequently when I paper scrap, but I forget who wrote it.  lol

Google "scrapbook generation".  Their layouts seem like they would lend themselves perfectly to your challenge: a layout without pictures.

edit:  so I just checked it out, been a while.  Search for free, and if you dont like what is there I will search my stash for you.  I know I have a bunch.

Thanks!  I used all your suggestions and did 5 pages in Hershey today!  I found out that the pinks in the baby girl stuff this season is more coral/salmon and a nightmare to work with.  Not to mention the lines and true links and aqua they are pairing it with.  It's getting done but oh boy!!!

OMGOSH!!! Yes, you are right!!  I had some layouts at Hershey yesterday that required a circle being cut, and I let my circle cutter at home (along with my new bottle of glue.....) and dismissed it because of that!!  OK!  Thanks!
