Scrapbooking and Card Sketches
A scrapbooking or card sketch is a drawing that a designer creates to help scrappers create layouts. These sketches can be followed 100% or they can be used loosely as a guide.
Sketches are created with a certain page size in mind, but will a little bit of adjusting they can be tailored to fit any size. Same thing with card sketches…see one you like, make it in to a page!
Here are some examples of a card sketch and a scrapbooking one, and the items made from them.
