Hey all. Here's another stash project. Something rather simple, but that was on purpose.

You see, I collect inspiration from magazines and the 'net. Usually when I see a layout I like, I translate it to a sketch. Sometimes I even come up with my own sketches (not so sure they are really original lol).

Well last crop I realized that the sketches that I was drawing on scrap papers and such I had been throwing out and I decided I didn't want to throw out sketches anymore, even if I'd used them. Sometimes I scraplift myself!

It occurred to me that it would be very handy to have a book of sketch "blanks" in which to draw my sketches and keep them for as long as I like. I wanted the book to be small enough to keep in my purse, yet large enough to make the sketches easy to draw. I wanted it to be "nice" looking but not too pretty since it would be rousting around in my purse and probably get a little beat up eventually. So no dimensional decorations and no expensive supplies on it that I would regret losing.

Bonus, I got to use my Bind-it-all, which I haven't used enough. :)
The finished book is 6 1/4" x 3 3/4".

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a fabulous idea - I love your "blanks" and it is perfect!

  2. Honestly Michele - THIS IS PERFECT for you and all the terrifically wonderful ideas you come up with.

  3. Love it. Perfect size. I just wish I could be creative enough to sketch a project out. LOL. I see you are already putting it to good use.
