So, Let's Talk Sketches

So, let's talk sketches for a bit. Are you a fan? Do you use them when designing a layout? I am a fan and have been since the first time Becky Higgins had a sketch in Creating Keepsakes Magazine. I use them any time I get stuck or find myself lacking creative ideas. Designing one layout based on a sketch usually gets my ideas flowing and helps me think out of the 12" x 12" box--so to speak. While I worked for Creative Memories I had the opportunity to design a hundred or so sketches for them. Because of their bankruptcy and restructuring many of them will never be used, so I thought I might start posting one or two here each Saturday in Sept/Oct as a sort of "Saturday Sketch" post. If they end up being useful to you, please post a comment at some point and I'll design some new ones as well and keep the "Saturday Sketches" coming.

So here is today's set, a 12" x 12" layout sketch and a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card sketch.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
