TN Tuesday: Sketch and T-Square Tips

Hey, memory keepers! Today I’m sharing with you my layout using Christine’s sketch for this month, including some tips on how I used the t-square from the TN Memory Keeping kit to help put it together.  The subject matter of my layout isn’t at all fun, but I am happy with how pretty the spread turned out, and having this pretty spread helps takes the sting away from that repair bill (just a little bit, haha!).

I first laid down a few strips of paper on the right side of the spread, then I used the t-square to locate my photo on the left side.  It was so easy to place it perfectly horizontally!

Once the photo was in place, I used the t-square up above it to place my title letters.  Tweezers are a great tool for placing delicate or small items like these letters, and the t-square made it super simple to get all the letters even.  No measuring or guidelines required!

Underneath the photo, I used the t-square to draw lines for journaling, since the page I chose in my simple dori doesn’t have a grid or dots.  I didn’t measure between the lines; I just eyeballed it as I moved the t-square down the page.  Light pencil lines provide an easy framework for my journaling.

A simple die cut finished off the photo, and a couple of leaves and two circle die cuts layered on top of each other finished off the right side.

And here it is again, the finished layout.  The t-square made this project come together ridiculously quickly, and I love all the bright colors and patterns!

Thanks for stopping by today! How are you using the t-square from this month’s kit? Drop me a line in the comments – I’d love to hear some good ideas! Join me in the Memory Keeping with Cocoa Daisy Facebook group, and follow me on Instagram for more inspiration.

Until next time!

Kristine xoxo
