Who doesn't love a good sketch? It helps to take the guesswork out of the page and/or card design, but still allows you to put your own spin on things just be turning the sketch or altering it here and there. A few times a month, we'll be bringing you a new sketch, and showing you a few takes on the sketch by our designers. Today, we have our first sketch for December, courtesy of Becky Fleck.
"Hey Santa", by Diana Fisher.
I am a big fan of sketches with only one photo, but when you also add a split background like this one does, I love it even more. I recently snapped this photo of my boy with Santa Claus at the mall, so the Christmas Cheer collection was perfect for this sketch. I love the traditional green and red color scheme, and the stickers in this collection were perfect for working with the sketch. I used a variety of stickers and journaling to create the big title off to the side.

“Christmas Cousins”, by Allyson Meinholz.
I loved this sketch and the simplicity of it. Christmas is approaching very quickly (especially when we are moving next week). I kept this layout as is and very pleased with the end result. I even took the time to journal, which I am the first one to admit I don't journal as often as I should. This photo was taken last Christmas Eve at my parents, of my girlies and my niece. I did ask my daughter a few of her favorite things about going to Nana & Papa's house on Christmas Eve.
