Need some inspiration?

Look on YouTube! Seriously. I love going to YouTube for layouts and other paper crafting videos. One of my Favorites is Kathryn Kreiger from Kathryn Scraps. I love her layouts and often she has sketches available so you can recreate the layout for your own albums.

This week, she posted a layout a day and had a challenge to go with each sketch. I found myself wanting to create a page for my own albums so I decided to participate this time with the "When Hippos Had Hair" sketch. I had so much fun creating this page. It features a photo of my husband and youngest son when he was still itty bitty. Dad was supposed to be putting him to bed.

The layout is complete except for the journaling (I will add that in a bit). I used papers from my stash to coordinate with the picture. I also used my 2" Scallop Circle Punch and 1 1/4" Circle Punch to help create embellishments to match. You can find the sketch and enter your own layout on her blog.

Thanks Kathryn! I had so much fun putting this layout together! Cant wait for your next video :)

Have a great day Crafters!


  1. The layout looks great, Emma! Thanks so much for sharing it with us! :) My favorite part (after the cute photo, of course!) is the layered circles and rings - love how those turned out!

  2. congrats, you will have fun with the punch and camera album, such a cute picture.

  3. Thank you Bridget! I'm really excited to work with both of them!

    And Thank you again Kathryn! I'm still having fun working with your sketches!
