Trimming the Tree

I subscribe to a blog called Got Sketch and get a weekly scrapbook sketch via email. I love saving these and referring to them when I need a boost in my scrapbooking (which is always!). This sketch was a favorite because it uses multiple photos which is how I scrapbook.

I used the Holiday Treasures DSP from SU and a variety of stamp sets all retired! In fact the little holly leaves are from a set from 2002- possibly one that I selected with my starter kit, though I'm not positive. It is called Seasons Sketches. The tree on the square is from an old 2005 Hostess set called Say it Simply which I had never even mounted before now! The title box is done with one of my all-time favorite alphas: Whimsical Uppers. The smaller letters are from Rough Edges alpha.

I liked doing my journaling on these strips and cutting them in pieces. For some reason it was less stressful to write my thoughts and a bit easier to write in a more unique way for me... more like bullet points than complete thoughts.

Anyway, I highly recommend subscribing to this blog and using their sketches! They even provide awesome samples for every sketch. Thanks for visiting!
