October Free Sketch & Template

by | Scrapbooking Freebies | 2 comments

Each month our members receive new sketches and companion layered templates, plus a digital magazine featuring these tools in action. This year I’m giving away a sketch and template set from our membership library every month on the blog.

This month’s freebie is a 1-photo, 12×12 layout which has a focal point photo in the middle, while allowing room for some journaling and embellishing. There are more than 225 sketches and templates instantly accessible when you become a Simple Scrapper member.


See it in action…

Here is an interpretation by Sara Case Strickland that flips the orientation of the photo and the location of the title but keeps the embellishments in place.


Here is an interpretation by Lisa Corbin-Polak that is quite true to the original sketch but she includes paint behind the photo to add visual interest.

Here is an interpretation by Melanie Ritchie that keeps to the spirit of the sketch but uses a journaling card as the title for her page and shifts some of the embellishments slightly.


If you use this design concept to inspire your own layout, please come back and leave a comment sharing your page. I can’t wait to see how you make this your own!

We believe simple is not how your page looks, but how your scrapbooking hobby works. We have a free workshop called SPARKED and it is the best way to learn more about Simple Scrapper and start creating consistently.
