It Pays to Enter Challenges

I love challenges and I love, them even more, when it pays to enter the challenge.  Of course, getting paid is usually based on a random drawing or if the layout is selected as a GSO (gallery stand out).  It usually pays by way of a free template you get to use for the challenge and sometimes a coupon for a free purchase.

I love Scrapping with Liz templates.  I love them so much I have a folder on my computer just for SWL templates.  I can count on one hand the number of designers that get their own personal folder!  I don’t use personal folders unless I have many, many products by a particular designer.  The layout below was created using a template for her March template challenge.

Little Fishy

For me, this is a win, win, win, win.  I got a free template to participate, used a kit I absolutely love, it was selected by Liz as a gallery stand out for the week AND since it was selected as GSO, I got a coupon to use in her store.  Yay!

Scrapbook Layout Sketches Vol 2

Yes, it’s true, Scrapbook Layout Sketches Volume 2 is now available.  My second volume is full of sketches that will save you time by showing you exactly how to get the job done.  You can follow the sketches precisely or if you’re a more experienced scrapper you will have a foundation to build on.  You will find it here.

The Who, What, When, Where and Why of Sketchbooks

Some scrappers may wonder, “Who uses sketches?”, “What are they?”, “When would I use one?”, “Where do I start?”, and “Why would I need to use a sketch?”.  If you have found yourself asking these questions you’ll be interested in the article I posted here.

You may or may not need to use sketches.  You may need them some of the time but not all the time.  But if you are new to scrapping or find yourself needing a little push sometimes a sketch is one way to get you going.  So hop over and find answers to your questions if you’ve been wondering.

If you agree you need a little push in the right direction my Kindle eBook will help you.  It’s loaded with sketches and full color examples you can use right now.
