"Meet the Creative Team" Blog Hop

•••••••••••••••••••
Welcome to our "Meet the Creative Team" blog hop!

What better way for our readers to learn a little about our Creative Team than with a blog hop! I've had the opportunity to get to know these girls beyond their scrapbooking talents and I just don't know if it's possible to have a better group of women. I am so thankful for all the time and effort that they all put into Sketch Support. I'm also excited that you'll get to know them a little better with this hop!

Of course we are going to do the blog hop in Sketch Support style. We've got:

• a new sketch (a sneak peek from our new Sketches for Scrapbooking: One-page Sketches, Vol. 2)
• lots of different examples of how to use the sketch
• and lots of giveaways

Here's how the blog hop will work:

At the bottom of this post you will find links to each of the Creative Team member's blogs. You can jump around if you like but we recommend starting at the first on the list and at the end of her post you can click the link and "hop" to the next blog.

Along the way you'll find projects based on our new sketch, One-Page Sketch #20


You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the one-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar. 

You'll also find some giveaways as you travel along to each blog. To be eligible for those you'll have to visit their blog and read their requirements. And, of course, we have to do a giveaway here at Sketch Support too! Our favorite giveaway is:

"The Ultimate Scrapbook Generation Kit Club Sampler" 

The winner of this giveaway will receive:

Super Sketch Club kit - includes the materials and sketches to make five two-page layouts.

Boy Crazy kit - includes the materials to create a two-page boy themed layout with a sketch.

Girl Crazy kit - includes the materials to create a two-page girl themed layout with a sketch.

Generation Page kit - includes the materials to create a two-page layout with a color photo of the layout and directions.

Hall of Fame Page kit - includes the materials to create a two-page layout with a color photo of the layout and directions.

Generation Card kit - includes the materials to create four cards with color photos of the cards, directions, and a cutting guide.

To sum it up that's seven sketches and the materials to make nine two-page layouts and four cards!

And not to sound too much like an infomercial but, that's not all! We're also going to throw in a copy of our two newest sketch books:

• Sketches for Scrapbooking: Travel Sketches

• Sketches for Scrapbooking: One-page Sketches, Vol. 2

To be eligible for "The Ultimate Scrapbook Generation Kit Club Sampler" and books you have to leave a comment at each Creative Team member's blog/post along the hop. After you do that, come back here and let us know in the comments on this post.

It's time to get to hoppin'! We are actually starting off the first post in the hop here at Sketch Support. The link to Penny's post will take you to the post below this one. You'll be able to follow the rest of the hop from there! Have fun!

I love the sketch and can't wait to see everyone's take on it. I love the sketches here as well. :)

Darcy said...

Off to hop, I sure hop there are no word verifications, they take the joy out of hopping! Can't wait to see the projects!

Michelle said...

Wow!! Lots of great inspiration. I love everyone's take on the sketch and their other favorites. There were a few blogs that weren't updated. I love all the sketches that I see each week here. They are always so inspiring... now to find the time to scrap. :)

Lisa said...

I'm not usually a 1 page scrapper but with your (Alison) sketches, I have found new inspiration!!

MaryAnn said...

wonderful prize...WOW
The travel sketch book looks very interesting.

sixtyschild said...

Great blog hopping, definately going to use this sketch! loved seeing everyones interpretation, though something went wrong with the link leading into Virginias...no sketch or blog hopping, had to return here. though her washi tape tutorials were a nice change.
lovely prize, thanks for the opportunity.

Stephanie M. Hasty said...

i've had fun blog-hopping with you all this morning! because i am a nerd i thought you might like to know that there are three links that aren't up (janette, virginia and melissa)...i'll go back to those later today... :D

Lora Zimmerman said...

I haven't done a blog hop before, it sounds like so much fun! can't wait to get it done

Lisa said...

WOW, I don't know about anyone else but I'm pooped, thanks for all the inspiration, my mind is spinning!!!

Allison Davis said...

I'm so, so sorry everyone! I'm not sure what is going on! If you are commenting for the big giveaway I will not count against you for not commenting on those three. Again, I am so sorry!

Darcy said...

Thanks for the hop team! There were three blogs not up yet, but I commented anyway. Enjoyed it. Thanks!

soccermom11 said...

Wow!! I have to say I have already used the heck out of my travel sketch book...in the last three days I have completed 16 pages. What fun to see how eveyone used their sketches!!

HeatherK said...

Loved going through the blog hop and seeing all the wonderful layouts. I guess I was a little early as I missed Janette, Virginia and Melissa's layouts, but I will go back later and check for them. Thanks for a great hop and lots of inspiration.

Jennifer said...

Great blog hop! I commented on everyone who had a post up. Thanks for the chance to win some great prizes.

GLOANN said...

I do believe this is the first time I have ever done an entire blog hop, but it was so much fun seeing what the designers each did with the sketch. I left comments everywhere except for the two that were not up. The only thing I didn't enjoy was those two words for verifying I am not a robot! Sometimes they're just so hard to read. LOL

SunnyNP said...

That was so much fun and very inpiring! I missed the couple that weren't up yet, but I didn't even see Melissa on the original hop list, but I tried to follow the links(I'll revisit the other stops later to see if they're up yet). Thanks for the chance to win!

blupixy said...

I've hopped and enjoyed all the creativity. I've commented on all by Virginia's but have plans to check to see if she is up later! Thanks for the chance- floresfour@aol.com

Scraphop said...

My first time to "hop" -- loved it. Between this and 2Peas, I am going to have to get the travel sketches! Used your sketches last night to make a layout -- thank you so much for the inspiration!

Marcia Scantlin said...

I enjoyed the blog hop, just had trouble getting to a recent post on Virginia Nebel's. And on Melissa's, you have to come back to this original site first to find it - it doesn't link from the prior post.
Great inspriation for a rainy day.

Tulip Scrapper said...

I made it all the way through the blog hop--took me all day (okay, I got a massage, shopped, and gardened here and there), but I did it! There is a ton of inspiration in this hop, and I know I will definitely be using this sketch as a go-to sketch. It is just my style.

JoAnn Heinbuch said...

It has been AWESOME to hop around and see the Blogs and LO's created by all the members of the Creative Team. Such talented people - I cannot wait to get back in my scrap room and crop away - it has been too long!
It has been LOTS of fun seeing how each person views the sketch differently and then adds personal touches to the sketch to personalize it.

Et said...

Great team and great blog hop. I love seeing everyones take on the sketch.

Wow! That was such a fabulous hop. I first saw how many blogs there were and thought I wouldn't do it, but I am glad I did. I got so much inspiration and I love to see what is done with your sketches. i love the clean design your sketches lend for. I have used so many of them and plan to use this one too. Thanks for setting this up.

Thanks for a fun hop! So much inspiration from one sketch, and chances to win to boot. Thank you!!

Missy said...

Thanks so much for this blog hop! I love the sketches...just finished an entire 50-page album for someone, and about 50% of the pages were sketches I got from you. (The other half were from my favorite EASY PATTERNS book from CK). Sketches have revolutionized my scrapping!

Laureen said...

Thank you for the blog hop! I love to lok at your sketches and they have guided me through mnsy times! All are FAB!

Cathy A. said...

I have never done a blog hop before but I am such a sketch support fan that I had to do it. enjoyed "meeting" the designers and seeing the layouts. I truly did try to comment on all blogs but wasn't successful. I don't have a goggle acct. or wordpress, etc. which left me out more than once. I hope you'll still consider me for the giveaway. thanks.

Bethany Rielage said...

I always love seeing the new sketches, and it was really fun and inspiring to go to everyone's blogs and see their takes on the same sketch. Now I need to get to work! Thanks for doing this and providing all these great sketches!

debbi said...

I really enjoyed the blog hop. Went to every stop and left a comment. The Sketch Support site and the Creative Team provide me with inspiration every single day! Thanks for all you do and thanks for an amazing giveaway.

Michele said...

Can't wait to use this sketch after seeing all the inspiration on the blog hop. Thanks for the generous giveaway. Good luck to all. :D

Love the blog hop, I've seen everyone’s layouts and enjoyed learning more about the team. I am now SUPER motivated to scrapbook. Wish I could stay up all night doing layouts! Thanks ladies for sharing your work.

Ines said...

Great blog ho, hope I get a chance to wing one of the books or the big price, thank you

sharon said...

Fun to peruse all the lovely blogs you have on here!! I think I need to head to my scrapbook room, since I am not equipped with so many wonderful new ideas!!! :) Thanks!!!!

ScrapsofMe said...

Ok...I made the rounds and left comments everywhere...and saw some reallllllly awesome work. Your design team is fabulous! Thanks so mich for the great inspiration.

Now...I have a few editorial comments....no where can I find what the end date for entering the main prize. I see one of the blogs have there own prizes...most already given...some stil open. Maybe it's here on the blog and I just can't see it?

The next thing applies not only to this blog hop but two others that were launched at almost the same time. TAX season? Really? Some of us unlucky people are very busy up until yesterday. Frantically busy...too busy to play. This is the first time in over a week I've had time to check my fave inspiration spots, normally I check them daily. I have no idea if I've made the deadline or not...see previous item.

Anyways...I loved the chance to see the layouts and found some new fave designers along the way!
