Default Go To Sketches

Hi all! I just picked up a copy of Papercraft's Go To Sketches yesterday at Borders and really love it! The colors are so fresh and the designs just appeal to me - really think the contributors knocked it out of the ballpark on this one!

I had this crazy notion of challenging myself to actually make a card from each sketch shown and creating a section in my gallery for them. I tend to pick magazines up, go through them, then put them on my shelf. Then later I sit and wonder what to create!

Anyways - has anybody else picked up a copy? Are you loving it? If you've designed a card from it, I'd love to see it!

(Oh - and if there's already a thread on this, I apologize and you can delete. I searched first and didn't see anything - but I'd love a link to it!)

I don't think you'll be disappointed in the slightest! The Facebook links are what caught my eye. I'm a huge fan of Betsy Veldman.

Mitzi, that is a neat idea about the sketches. Did you know that there is a sketch challenge going on at the Paper Crafts Connection Blog? You should check it out!

I love how the magazine has each Go-To gal give an introduction and then you can see her sketches. Its a neat concept and great magazine to have for inspiration!

Is that the one? Looks like FUN! So do we create a card with each sketch, or just pick one?

Yes! Just use the two sketches that are shown. Looks like each month they will be using 2 different sketches! Fun!

I just picked my copy up this weekend and I love it. Can't wait to try out some of the sketches especially since I'm in a card making slump right now.

Just wanted to add my endorsement of this issue. I am not usually a purchaser of hard copy magazines like this but I saw so many nice things on several blogs I went and hunted it down. I found many copies at my Michaels if you are looking. Anyway, I was thinking a similar idea of doing a sketch a week or something. I've already picked out the first one I want to try. I'll try to actually get it in my gallery for a change. Maybe we can all post here if we do one.

I love it too!

I'm actually working through the book, doing at least one card with each and every sketch in the book, in order. I'm posting them here in the gallery and on my blog. I'm having a blast and it's getting me outside my comfort zone at times. I'm on page 52, which is the star card. That's a tough one for me as I don't usually make shaped cards, but I'll get it done soon.

LOVE this book.

Yes, I agree. Go To Sketches is terrific! I've posted a couple of cards on my blog that I've made using sketches from it, and will definitely be making more!

I picked up my copy about two weeks ago and love it! It reminds me of the two Joy of Card Making magazines from a few years back, my issues of those are so dogeared I'm glad to have something new

I love the To Go Sketches also. The colors and designs are great. I saw this at the grocery store and just "had to have it, now". I have done a coule cards using various sketches in it already.

I found mine awhile back at JoAnns and was able to use a 50% coupon for it. I love it. I think it's a great resource and one of the few reference magazines I keep near my stamping stash instead of filed away with my magazines. Of course, I love the work of most of the designers who were featured - look at their blogs regularly, so I would love the work they did for the magazine, too.
