Merry Christmas Layout Sketch Challenge

Today’s Sketch Challenge

Here at Kiwi Lane we believe in Inspiring and Being Inspired. This is one of the reasons that we love layout and card sketches. They are such a great form of Inspiration for scrapbookers and card makers! We also believe that a good challenge can Inspire us to new heights, which is why we often present our sketches along with a friendly challenge!

Below is a new Layout Sketch to Inspire you this week. To play along with this challenge, recreate your own layout using this week’s sketch. Don’t have the exact Designer Templates shown? No worries! Simply use the sketch as a springboard for your creativity, and utilize the Designer Templates you already have! We have also provided a FREE PRINTABLE sentiment that you can incorporate into your design if you choose to. We recommend printing it out on cardstock to make it more durable.December Merry Christmas Sketch Challenge

Merry Christmas everyone for just a few more hours.
