Thoughts to Ponder | Blog Restart


Hello Friends!

It's Kristine here today. Please have a seat!!!
I have been thinking about Creative Scrappers the past few weeks and I am pondering the thought of starting up again. YES! YES I AM!  I do miss the sketches that I posted on a regular basis and of course seeing how YOU create with the sketches was so much fun.  I have finished one of my dt terms, and I have a bit more time to play and coordinate for the next few months or more.  That means that I could create a few sketches for YOU!
 I also looked at this page counter and saw that CS started April 25 2008. That's a long time ago and over 2.5 MILLION visitors since then !!! That's HUGE for a Sketch blog ;-)


Think about it - Creative Scrappers as a sketch blog again - not in the same format we had before with 10-12 designers and a bi weekly sketch reveal. I am thinking of something smaller with more guests and perhaps a reveal every month instead. That will give you more time to create with the sketch. I will have a team a designers but not a large number that I had before.

So with this posted, I would love your feedback.
Are there too many blogs/outlets for sketches now? Are you still interested in creating with sketches ? Would you participate in our reveals ? Be interested as a guest or maybe a designer?

Just throwing a few questions at you .. you can post in the comments of this blog post or on the CS facebook page. I really would love to hear your thoughts.

Here is a sketch for you!
I couldn't leave you without a little something!
I created this sketch based on a layout I created for Jillibean Soup last week. 


Here is my layout -- Adventure Outside
-- You can add 2 photos or just 1 4x6 pic with a small filler card perhaps? 

Enjoy creating with this sketch and please share it using #CreatingWithSketches  and you can also tag me on instagram @KristineDavidson

talk again soon!
