Paper & Ink Sketches

Paper and Ink Sketches


I'm super excited to announce Paper & Ink Sketches!!  

I've teamed up with my downline  - Chics Paper Ink to bring you 24 Sketches over the next 12 months. 


Here's the details:

  • Paper & Ink Sketches will run from July 2016 - June 2017 (24 Sketches).
  • Sketches will be posted here on Chic n Scratch the 1st and third Wednesday of every month.
  • Each Sketch will have a FREE PDF without measurements and another PDF with measurements (this feature is not one I've done before and I'm super excited about it).
  • Feel free to use the Sketch and share your creation on my Paper & Ink Sketches with Chic n Scratch Facebook Group.  Click here to join.
  • My Chics Paper Ink downline will be participating and I expect you will see these Sketches on other social media outlets.

Here's the card I created using Sketch #1 with the Fiesta Birthday Stamp Set and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper.

    Oh by the way, I like both measurements. I guess it depends on how much white you want.

  65. Becky Wynn

    I like the 2 inch one best. I love the Chevron pattern. Tyfs.

  66. Darlene Boardman

    Love this clean and simple design. Will make several different ones to always have one on hand. When I downloaded the instructions they do say the DSP is 5-1/2″ x 2″ instead of 5-1/4″ just wanted to mention!

  73. Kate Stockman

    Love your sketches. PLEASE, PLEASE keep giving the measurements for
    the cards (it saves me a lot of wasted paper).

  74. Cary

    I love, love, love the sketches. I’m so excited to get them every week!!! Thank you for doing this.

  75. Chrystyna

    Love your idea with card sketches, especially with the measurements. Sometimes I get stuck on what the dimensions of the layers should be to look good. I love having the measurements that’s much better than goofing up and tossing my attempt. Love all the sketches so far…#1-3. Super ideas! Thanks so much, they’re awesome!!!

  76. Mary Binder

    Like fast cards, sometimes we need lots for an I-Care ministry at our church. Thanks

  77. Sandra Murphy

    Just love your cards. What I like about this is you can store the sketches in a binder along with the card to keep for your idea book.

  78. Margie W

    Thanks for the sketches–I love them.

  79. mireille25

    Merci pour toutes ses jolies cartes et j’adore l’idée des Shetchs , j’espere que vous allez continuée

  80. Carol Wardrop

    I love the 2″ better but either is just fine. Thanks for the new ideas.


  81. Carol Wardrop

    I love the 2″ better but either is fine. Many thanks for the demos.


  82. Linda Snyder

    Hi Angie,
    I don’t know if anyone else has mentioned this, but you have listed on the .pdf with measurements file as 5 1/2″ wide on the DSP layer and you say 5 1/4″ on your video. It appears that the 5 1/4″ is the correct one so that you get the small white border around the edge.
    Thanks for making these sketches. I know they will be very helpful in card designing! Looking forward to each new one coming each week!

  83. Chris Boyer

    I like both cards. I know I find the sketches very helpful.
