Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge














Thank you for playing along with the blog hop. If you did not arrive to my blog from Veronica please return to Amanda's blog http://www.lovejoypaper.com/ .


Amanda created an amazing sketch. Well, for those of you that don't know ..... I am strictly a digi scrapbooker. I find traditional scrapbooking very intimidating. This has always surprised me because I love to make cards. I think it is the large 12x12 blank canvas.


When I first began the digi process last year I never used templates. Recently, I have fallen in love with them. There are so many great template resources out there. But, I used to feel I was missing out on all the great traditional sketches offered for traditional scrapbooking. Then the light bulb came off. Why not turn those into digi templates?



So, now when I find a sketch I love I take a few minutes to create a digi template I can use over and over again. I created a template from Amanda's amazing sketch. If you are a digi gal and would like the template please let me know.



Thank you for playing along. Please leave a comment. I'll draw a winner on Monday. Your next stop will be Jackie http://www.scrapbangwallop.blogspot.com/.



The winner is MeganD. The prize is a smash dual tip pen. If you have not seen them you can learn about the pen here http://eksuccessbrands.com/kandcompany/smash/. Please send me your addy.


Happy Crafting, Traci

Great digi template. I tried the digi process when I first started and while it was quick and easy, I love the satisfaction I get from scrapbooking with the real paper, glue and tools...mostly because of the tools I think! :D
Thanks for sharing and will be checking back to see your LO with this template! :)

I always turn sketches I love into digi templates - it's the best!!! It saves so much time when you want to use the same sketch again. Great job!
