Card sketch book...

Have you ever wished you had a cool little book to draw your card sketches in? Well, now it's possible! Kristina Werner created a wonderful PDF that you can download and print to create your own sketch book. How cool is that?!? You can find the post about it on her blog here. She even made a video of her creating a book so that you can do it step-by-step right along with her. I created one last night...

Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Greenhouse; Doodlebug Loopy Lou Cardstock Stickers - Bon Bon; American Crafts Clear Alphabet Stamps - Ginger; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; EK Success Corner Punch

I really love it! Now if we can only talk her into doing a PDF for layout sketches...hmmmmmm. ;)

One the video Kristina uses a pivot point stapler to put her book together. She says that if you don't have one, you can just use a regular stapler opened up, laying against a soft pillow or cushion. Then, once you push your staples into place, you can just turn the book over and flatten the prongs yourself. That's exactly what I did, but I used an old mouse pad instead and it worked perfectly. Just sharing... :)

Cool April thanks for the link! I use that stapler trick at school with the things the kiddos make, very handy. Yours turned out great!
