Layout Sketch - July

Sunday, July 1, 2007

Happy July! Goodness where is this year going? Anyway new month, new sketch. This month I tried to go with something with a patriotic feel, hence the stars, but you can switch them up (I did!). The digital template comes with the title text on a path so you can change that out to your own title. Simple yet effective, and lots of room to add stuff and make it your own! The digital template can be downloaded here

And as promised here is the 8.5" x 11" version of the sketch, download contains BOTH templates so you get two for one!

After all my attempts to do a patriotic page I ended up with this! HA! Totally NOT patriotic but heck the pics were taken on my parents American vacation so that counts right?

As always I sent the template out to the sketch girls and they came up with the following designs! I really love how they all made the sketch their own! Great work!

Thanks for this fantastic template. Love the text-on-a-path along that oval. The page scraps submitted of your design with the beautiful colors are just fantastic. The layout on the white bg definitely adds that extra pop. The heading appears as if it is suspended in space. Just awesome. The placement of the photos definitely showcase them in the most positive way possible. I can't wait to use it. I have the 3 photos of my great-grand with his arm cast. This hits the spot. Thanks for another grand page layout. Leavin LUV!!!
