GIVEAWAY: Creating With Sketches V3

I love promoting handmade, as well as doing crafts of my own. My favorite hobby is scrapbooking, which I've been doing since 1997. Sometimes I sit down ready to create a scrapbook page, but I have a creative block & can't think of a unique layout on my own. That's why I was so excited to discover Creative Scrappers when looking for inspiration online. Kristine Davidson is the founder and coordinator of Creative Scrappers, a site started six years ago. Since then, the site has featured over 250 Sketch reveals!

A few months ago, I saw that Kristine was preparing to release her third version of Creating With Sketches, a book featuring 120 never before posted sketches with examples from 60 international designers. She was also looking for scrapbookers who might be interested in creating a layout for publication based on one of the sketches, so I emailed her expressing my interest. I absolutely loved the sketch Kristine provided me with, so much so that I created a couple of different layouts!

Creating With Sketches V3 is available in both digital and printed formats. The digital download is just $10.00 and the printed version is $18.00 plus shipping. Pre-order for the printed version is open until October 15th, so be sure to get your order in ASAP.
