Happy New Year folks!!
A new year means a fresh new look, and over the coming weeks, the Kaisercraft Blog will be given a little facelift!
Starting with that cute heading you see up above – easy to read and find!!
For those who are unfamilar with our MONTHLY SATURDAY SKETCH challenge, here’s what happens:
Each Saturday every month a new sketch and inspirational layouts will be posted here on the blog. From these sketches (depending on how many Saturday’s there are), you have that many chances to create a layout of your own and upload it to any gallery of your choice, or in a blog post, facebook page, the Kaisercraft Gallery etc.
Once your layout is complete and uploaded along with the sketch name/number and month, link your layout into the comments section of the approapriate sketch blog post and you’re entry is complete!
Comment on this post (or other January sketch posts) with your linked layout before 31st January.
1st PLACE: One of Kaisercraft’s new collections (valued at approximately $50).
2nd PLACE: A Kaisercraft scrap pack (including new products) valued at approximately $30.
Let’s have a closer look at Kerryn and Kirsty’s layouts:
“Double layouts (and sketches) can seem overwhelming. Don’t feel that you have to try and fit everything in though. Start with the number of photos you would like to use and build from there. I have only used 3 4×6 photos but you can still clearly see the sketch within my layout.
I have used a couple of embellishment clusters in place of extra photos. Make the sketch work for you and you will find that they aren’t as hard as they might seem”.

“I liked using this sketch! I managed to overcome my fear of Double page LOs easily, because this sketch made it easy to see where everything should go to give a balanced LO! The little tab above the photo on the left hand side, prompted me to add some extra hidden photos and journalling to my page!”
