A Frugal Journey Through January Day 3

Hello again and welcome to Day 3 of A Frugal Journey through January.

I often doodle ideas for scrapbook layouts in a notebook for the day when Mr Mojo goes on strike. Ideas for cards tend to either get made at the time I had the thought, or lost with the sketch on a scrappy bit of paper headed for the waste paper basket when the urge to clear my desk hits me. So, why not be more organised with card layouts. Work out what you like on a specific size of card.

I started with a layout to fit a 13.5 cm square card but it can be turned,


resized, in full or part,

and the grid can be used as a stencil with inks or paints too for super easy one layer cards.


So, what would you sketch and how would you use it? Why not share your idea by leaving a link to your work in the comments to this post!

Thanks so much for stopping by. The stamps I used in these projects are Chocolate Baroque Wisteria Lane and the papers are from Prima.

See you again same time, same place tomorrow x



  1. I have never done any sketching or plan layouts but i can see why it can be useful, it might help with keeping my scraps in different sections instead of putting them all in one place.

    Loving Choc Baroque stamps i have a lot of Elusive Image stamps, used to collect them! Fab images and lovely colours Val, another one to try.

    Looking forward to a journal page tomorrow:-) xxx

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Mo, it's so nice to get some feedback. I have to confess the stamps I used are old Elusive Images ones and must be good ones as they are still in Glenda's current catalogue!
