My card sketch book....

Wow I can't believe it's been that long since I posted on my blog... Time sure does fly... I wish I could say it's because of all the fun I have been having but sometimes life likes to get up in your face and say hello here I am.... That is exactly what happened. So now things seem to be back to normal... A while back I promised a peek at my card sketch book. So better late then never.

My Card sketch book.
It is filled with 4x6 graph index cards. The covers are just a nice thick chipboard... I love the kraft look so I choose to not cover the entire front cover. Some 1" circles cut out from several of my favorite papers, some amazing ribbon and my most favorite things buttons and butterflies with a little bling. I punched and bound it with my bind it all. Simple easy and way affordable. The pack of graph index cards I separated in half and it made 2 of these 4x6 sketch books. I always draw out my sketches of cards, layouts etc with little notes here and there of embellishments I think I may use on them etc. The graph paper is great because it makes it easy to draw a perfect square. hehe I use to use those cheep spiral bound graph notebooks that cost an arm and a leg but they are getting harder and harder to find so I started making my own when I purchased my bind it all when it first came out... This cost me less then $3.00 to make.

This weekend I will share a few pages from the inside along with the cards that came from those sketches.

Also be sure to check back tomorrow (Friday) when Unity meets Clear Scraps... It's gonna be quite the pair. Oh and lets not forget about the prize at the end of the rainbow...

Pin It!
