Love the LO and the I heart summer. I think I need to get some LOL. It will be perfect for photos of my grandchildren. Thank you for the sketch. I got into a rut until I started acquiring Second Generation sketches. They have motivated me to get started again.

Janet N.

I always love your sketches, but I really, really like how you combined traditional 12x12 with those pocket pages! I've been wanting to try that and having a sketch (especially yours--always my go-to sketches) makes it so easy.

Fab sketch! Love your sketches and use them often! Thanks for sharing!


I think this is awesome! I think this will be the way to get a lot of photos done!

Karen K

Love this!

Love the combination of traditional layouts with the divided page protectors!

Wow, that's really cool using pocket pages. I want to start using sketches and croplifting to help me break out of my same ole style. Pages all start looking the same. Thanks for the ideas!

Melinda Koch

Love the layout and all the fun colors! Also love how you used the pocket page with the traditional layout

Wonderful sketch, like the mix of traditional and SNAP styles, and such a cute layout spread you have created! Thanks for the inspiration!


I have anxiously awaited your post on this site. You did not disappoint me. I love the 12x12 mixed with the pocket page. I love your work and have since I first walked in Scrapbook Generations. I may get to stop by next week. Thanks for including the sketch. You ate awesome!

Love your layout and the sketch too, Allison! The left side looks like it could be a great layout all on it's own.

BTW, I just tried downloaded the sketch and all I'm getting is a blank page when I click on the link.

Beautiful! Love the stitching!

Super cute layouts! Hard to decide which I like best.

Love this mix of traditional and pocket scrapbooking. I've been collecting simple stories papers for a while and now I have some new inspiration to get them out and use them.

I am loving using both the pocket page and the traditional pages. With this technique, I might get caught up on my scrapbooking!!

I love this layout. Where can I find these pocket pages? I checked Amazon and didn't see them. I don't live near a traditional scrapbook store - just the big box craft stores. Any ideas?
