This was just posted on Facebook by Jeanne from Operation Write Home. It’s a link to a pdf file that she compiled – an entire year’s worth of card sketches (one for each week) from the Stars & Stamps blog that can be printed in 13 pages. Organization tip: do you have a 3-ring binder to keep card ideas in? Printing files like these can give you oodles of inspiration when you hit a tough spot. In your binder, you could also save pages from card magazines. You could also print templates made by me! I have a few. Keeping your very own Card Idea book can be a lot of fun.
Thanks for this Jeanne, you rock!
This is such a neat thing – new card makers will have no problem at all getting card ideas from these great sketches! How do you use card sketches? Just go by the measurements provided in the sketch. Substitute patterned and plain cardstock for the different colored areas. Add your own twist by adding stamps, embellishments or stickers. . . rotate the sketch for a different look! Here is an example.
And if you love it like I do, don’t forget to take part in the weekly sketch challenges over at Stars & Stamps.
