I thought that this was something I didn’t need. But wanted to check it out to save time while sketching instead of in a sketch book. Boy was I wrong. I love this sketchbook I have used it for all my card designs since I got it. It saves me so much time. I have my sketch, color combos, and supplies used all in one place. Super happy.
I was on the fence about purchasing this as the price tag was high. After going back and forth several times I got it and now I am thinking I need a second one! The quality of this planner is beyond that of other planners I was using, there is more than enough space for each card layout/idea on each page. The paper is so nice that even after using an eraser numerous times it still showed no signs of paper breakdown. The included plastic insert with the ruler and shapes template make it fun when you are on extended phone calls to doodle on the sides of the pages. The only thing that would make this already perfect product better is having the little craft fairy come and put all the ideas from my head to paper for me! Great product, well thought out, high quality paper, full coil binding that is easy to open and close, Value for the money was absolutely worth it! 10 of 10 stars from this crafter.
I love the sketch pad. It gives me a way to save all my card templates, the colors and supplies I use for future reference. I can stop writing my ideas on scratch paper or in a notebook, now they are all in one organized spot.
I have been using a cheapy sketch journal for card sketches, and to be frank, it sucks. It gets messy and sloppy fast, there’s no lines to write my notes so everything is just everywhere, and I have to keep drawing the little card panels. Anyway, I said all that to say, this card sketch journal is the BOMB!!!! The coil binding is STURDY, I don’t see this bending ever, even with my crazy house of chaos. The covers likewise are extremely sturdy! The pages are beautiful, the section dividers have card panel measurements for all the mats you could ever want. Having a project title, date, and color pallet section for each card are the details I’ve been missing. Seriously, I love this card planner so much! I’m not even ashamed that I got a little teary eyed the first time I opened it and thumbed through it! Worth EVERY penny, and probably one of the most useful card supplies I’ve ever purchased! Thank you, Trinity Stamps for fulfilling a need in the crafting community!
Love the notebook but it would be a huge waste for me because I only make A2 cards. Maybe make one for just A2 because that is the most popular size card to make???
