sketch conversion with Christa Paustenbaugh + Webster's Pages prize

Hello everyone, Christa here with a really fun sketch conversion challenge. When I go through the monthly PageMaps sketches, I often love the 8.5x11 size sketch, but sometimes the format is not big enough for all of my photos. But don't overlook this size sketch, thinking it can't work for you. Converting one to a 12x12 is super easy and I'm here to challenge you to try it! Webster's Pages has joined us for this challenge and will send the lucky winner a collection pack of their new line, Plum Seed.

 
 

Here's the 8.5x11 sketch that I loved so much. Not only is it a great design, but it's also perfect for using up scraps of my favorite bits and pieces that I simply cannot part with! By converting my design to a 12x12 page, I was able to use a larger, single photo of my daughter and it gave me more room for my lengthy journaling and an oversized title.
Here's how my page turned out after converting it to 12x12:
 
 
 
Several members of the Webster's Pages design team also joined in on this challenge and here are their fantastic pages!

Aren't their pages just gorgeous!? They feature the new Plum Seed and Citrus Squeeze collections, and the Plum Seed is up for grabs for this challenge. So here's how you can have a chance to win: create a layout, based on the sketch above, and convert your page to 12x12. This contest starts today and ends at midnight MST on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. The contest is open to everyone, everywhere!
 
Have fun and Happy 7th Anniversary, PageMaps!
 
Christa

  16. http://www.flickr.com/photos/96821982@N07/8918700862/

    I tend to be less frilly and decorative, and more about adding as many photos as possible to my pages... so I think I found a nice way to use the sketch within my style.

  18. Acrobat 9 Pro Extended Download is the complete PDF solution for business and technical professionals.
    Project managers are no longer restricted to creating subtasks and then rolling them up into summary tasks. For Project 2010 Download, you can create summary tasks first, and they can have dates that don't exactly match the roll-up dates of the subtasks.
    Microsoft Visio Professional 2010 Download provides real-time data connections that allow you to create dynamic, data-driven diagrams easily shared through a browser. It also provides more templates and shapes for engineering, finance, operations, sales, and human resources professionals.
