    Hi Jen

    Your report was seriously inspirational and I thank you for all your hard work. This will help me personally a lot. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  34. Hi Jen, Wow! Wow! & Wow! again. You have put so much time into your report you should be really proud of yourself. I have only been stamping for just over 6 months and I do feel a sense of achievement when folk like the cards I create, but sometimes the indecision of it all drives me nuts!
    It has addressed so many of the problems that I face, I always say that procrastination is my worst enemy. After reading your report I can see where I was going wrong, but that is about to be remedied! My grand daughter Sarah is 12 and she has also caught my bug – the big difference with her is that she is so creative and has a great eye for detail etc, not like nan who likes to be ‘comfortable’ with what she does! You have opened my eyes and for that I thank you and I will definitely send you some of my creations! Are you ready for that?
    Cheers and congratulations on a job so thoroughly well done.

  35. Robin

    Awesome job! I think this will inspire me to be creative again! Thank you!

  61. A great tool to use. I often use sketches and it was very interesting to see how the one sketch could be used in different ways.

    For months (last Oct), I have been struggling with coming up with an plan to do a scrapbook page for a canoe trip we took. I wanted to make five identical ones to give to the others who took the trip with us to give as Christmas gifts.

    Although this report addressed cards, I now see how I use it to create my scarpbook pages. I can use the same sketch but change the elements to fit each person. Thanks so much!

    18 Jul

    Thanks for your report. I keep a note book of sketches. Some I down loaded from the net. Others I draw myself. When I get a card making magazine or book from library I see which designs I like best and then make a sketch for my notebook. So I know any pattern that is in my sketch book is one I really liked and then I can change up the ideas the way you did in your report. Great job on the variety of ideas. Thanks again.

    Great tips about using a sketch to make your cards. I have never used one when making mine, but I am going to have a play. Its seems to take a lot of the hard work of where to place things on your card. Really enjoyed reading this. Very easy to read and follow.

    Hi Jen,
    Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the Inspired Card Making report.
    I used to stumble at the first hurdle of “layout design” but your report has given me ideas for my next creation.

    Hi Jen
    Cardmaking a bit like scrapping but on a smaller scale. You have inspired me to make cards, rather than make then on the computer. Thanks for yours ideas.

  86. Carol
    19 Jul

    How many times can you say Thank You.
    All though I use same principles as with scrapping putting them on a smaller scale can be a bit scary.
    How simple have you made it.
    Have put it into a folder but this will not be just another book on the shelf.
    It will be in CONSTANT use.
    Thanks for the time you have put into this project. And I suspect a lot of love.

I just LOVE reading and absorbing this kind of info as much as I enjpy the creation of lovely cards. Many thanks.

    Hi Jen,
    Thank you so much for the “Inspired Card Making” report – it is a great aid to have. Combined with all the daily sketches from your website there is no way that anyone would be devoid of ideas, and by showing us the way that one sketch/plan can be used for so many different designs I can see that we will all be inspired – Thank you very much, Gail

    Hi Jen, Thanks for sharing the Card Making Report. It will be really helpful – all th cards look so different but all use the same design. Yes, I have spent hours looking at cards and not really found what I want and ended up falling back on a well used idea. Thanks again for your hard work.

  102. Lorna
    22 Jul

    Well what can i say this report is absolutely fantastic,
    I would never have thought that one sketch could be used in
    so many different ways.
    I always find it hard to make cards, i spend more time thinking
    about how i’m going to make the card and what to do, but this report has
    helped me loads and now i can’t wait to start making cards again.
    Thank you so much for all your hard work and a masive thank you for sharing

    Hi Jen, Thankyou so much. I loved all your Scrapbooking Sketches and have used Many, and now THIS Cardmaking. What an inspiration your Report is, and more importantly what a very generous person you are to share this with so many. I imagine there is many hours work in this report.I look forward to a book of Sketches as you did with scrapbooking if that is the road you are planning to take. WELL DONE.

    Jen, this whole thing you’ve done w/sharing your ideas & trying to get others inspired to carry on………..that’s really nice & very generous of you! Lots of people like to keep their “little secrets” so they stay special! You want everybody to suceed & that shows alot about the person you are! I personally need MORE of a kick in the butt to do all you mentioned (I’ll be honest here) but for others, it obviously did what you set out to do! I’ll look forward to your book & I wish you the best on every venture you follow! Thanks Jen:)

    23 Jul

    Thanks for this great booklet, it is such a good guide and the concept of sketching a design before making cards would never have occured to me, as you rightly suggested the possibilities from one sketch are neverending – can’t wait for some time to myself so I can get going and get my crafty mojo back…

    Haven’t had time to thoroughly read your book having just downloaded it, but I am so excited about the ideas I have been able to skim through. I have been ‘scrapbooking’ for a number of years and haven’t been able to get my head around making cards. This is just what I’ve been waiting for. CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU SO MUCH.

    Well done with the report Jen. It’s written in clear, basic language with good examples of your descriptions. I’m sure it will be useful to many who are new to card making.

    Thanks for this wonderful report. I love how you showed all the the different versions of the one sketch. I love sketches also but tend to follow them to the ‘t’ now I will have to have a go at making more versions of them.

    Have just downloaded your wonderful classroom. How did you know that it was just what I was looking for? I have been scrapbooking for a number of years, but just couldn’t convert my ideas to the cards. You have given me a new lease of life. I love the idea of using one sketch for a number of cards – I can now use up all my leftovers from scrapbooking. Thank you so much

    I certainly appreciate the time and effort you have put into preparing this report to encourage us all. I believe home-made cards are extra special and after having some time away from this hobby, it’s lovely to be re-inspired! It’s very thoughtful of you to make this available for free. Thankyou so much!

    Thanks for the Info, it is what I have been doing in my 30 years of card making to bad I never thought of writing out a report like that but that’s just me. Keep up the good work on all of the sketches and card ideas that you do. It’s always nice to see ideas from other crafters like myself, and the ideas that you can come up with just a small switch in the materials and it makes it look totaly different. Have a Nice Day!! Thanks again

    Thank you so much Jen. Your report touched on all the problems I have faced as a novice card maker. Yes, I’ve agonised over the design, whilst drowning in a sea of card-making materials. i’ve been envious of all those beautiful creations I’ve looked at on the internet and have felt that I could never create anything so ambitious. However, the information in your report has excited me so much and I can’t wait to sit down and ‘get creative’. Thank you for taking the time to share your ‘journey’ with us.

    Thank you for the report. And for the time you put into helping others. I am 22 and money is tight this year for me. Your sketch has inspired ideas. One idea I plan on using cardboard from cereal boxes for the card and wrapping it in leftover red Christmas paper. With hearts cut from colored boxes. And silver sharpie to tell of my love.

    I too have sat for sometimes days because I don’t get inspiration to start a card off….you have shown me that just one simple layout can be used over and over with different results.

    thank you for your very generous report and sketch ideas for card making Has certainly got my mojo working for the beginning of the year

  204. I received your report and loved it. It started me on that sketch and then going to more sketches and keeping a file on my desktop of sketches. You are so right, using a sketch (plan) takes out the fear and anxiety of making a card. Thank you bunches, I down loaded your report again because in traveling i lost it the first time Thank you bunches and bunches and bunches.

    so true that we can spend longer looking for inspiration than in actually making the card! the sketches are a good starting point to think about colours. I usually make 2 the same cards (different colours/patterned papers)at the time. keep up the gr8 work
