Card Ideas for Paper Crafters Giveaway

Sketches are a fantastic way to get started on scrapbook layout. By using a sketch you’ll know just how many photos to use on your layout, and the perfect way to arrange them. They’re so popular, that for every issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine we provide many sketches that you can download for free on our website.

Next to each sketch you’ll see 4 different cards that were all created using the sketch. No matter what your occasion is, you’ll be sure to find tons of ideas to help you with all your card making needs.

    What a great idea. So often I color a great image and then end up making the same basic rectangular card with two panels, one ribbon and a sentiment.

    Already I can see a great idea from the cover!

    Please pick me. Love from Mel xxx
