  3. I should... I have many printed sketches, but I just don't use them. I guess the eye-candy is more appealing. I like to take a card that I love, then make my own version. Love the party pics- my granddtrs would just love this!!!

  5. Yes, I have been using more sketches this year as I attempt to make better cards. Card sketches provide balanced and creative compositions, and are much better than trying to rely on my own ideas, haha!

  42. I do use sketches when I have an idea for a card in my head. 9/10 it doesn't end up looking the same but it helps organize pieces. But some times, I like to just "wing it". I even just take pieces and throw them up and see where they come down. You can get amazing things happening when you don't think about it too much.
