And We are LIVE! Sketch 1 is Here!

I am SO excited to finally debut our first sketch and the work by our amazing design team. We have all been anxiously awaiting this day. Thank you for your patience as we got everything ready for today. Now onto Sketch 1!

Remember our sketches are very simple. We will not show where to place titles, journaling, etc., because we want these sketches to be used for layouts (any size), cards, tags, altered items, etc. The versatility of "simple" will hopefully become very evident this weekend as we debut the layouts today, the cards on Saturday, and the tags/altered items on Sunday. We would love your feedback either in the comment sections or by e-mail. Here is Sketch 1!

We have five layouts to share with this sketch today. And be sure to look at how the DT used horizontal photos, vertical photos, one photo, two photos, three photos. They really made the sketch their own. We hope you will too!

We hope you enjoy this layout inspiration! Be sure to post links to your work in the comment section! Have fun!

OK-so are we entering our LO cards or projects, right? Is there a "give-away" for the "winner"...

I can't wait for the RAK drawings! SO exciting!

Penny, the RAK give-away is for those that subscribed to the blog by April 3rd. I will be announcing those winners later today. We will have other RAKs in the future. We would love to see what you do with the sketches though so please share a link. Shawna has already done an AMAZING page this morning. She posted the link above. :)

I shared this response with Kathy on another forum but I thought some of you might like to see my response too. :)

To Kathy, the anonymous poster, I am so sorry but we won't be doing any 2-page sketches; however, I would love to suggest that you take the sketch and flip it upside down for your opposite page. KWIM? I think that would work awesome for you!

melita said...
