A dream come true

I'm an author!

When I was in junior high school, I learned that I was born on the anniversary of a famous writer's birth.  I believed this destined me to be a great fiction writer.  Unfortunately, I think it takes more than the right birthday to write the great American novel.  :-(

I did realize though on Friday that when I published my first e-book, I was an author after all!  The book is a collection of all of last year's scrapbook sketches.  (In the photo I'm holding the 56 pages I printed to proof.) Here are the details:

This e-book contains 52 sketches used throughout 2013 in my process videos.  They are all contained in one document and organized by the number of photos suggested for each sketch. One photo, two photo, all the way up to over 14 photos per layout! Collage sketches and double page sketches are also included. 

Each page also contains a link to the process video created based on the sketch so you have a year's worth of handy scrapping tips right at your fingertips.

Each page in the PDF shares:

  • A sketch to scale
  • Sizes of several elements on the page including the photo sizes used
  • Suggestions for substituting the number or size of photos and other elements
  • A link to a process video in YouTube based on the sketch.
The single page layout sketches print at 6" square so it is very easy to measure any item on the sketch and double the measurement to find the exact size for a 12x12 page.  (Double page sketches are at a 1" to 4" scale.)

The 56 page PDF is only $8 (US) and available for immediate download after payment through PayPal.  After payment, you are redirected to a screen where you can complete purchase which downloads the PDF file to your computer.

It may not be a great novel, but I'm proud of this collection of sketches.  I think it is very helpful to have them all in one document along with a link to a supporting video.  I hope you will think so, too.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Congratulations, Lisa! Your book of sketches is just wonderful! I've downloaded my copy and looked through them from start to finish. It is definitely worth the $8 I paid. I especially like the photo size index that quickly lets me find layouts for the specific number of photos I have, and I also like the scaling of 1:2 and 1:4. That's really easy to work with. Thanks for putting together this marvelous tool. I know I'm going to use it a lot. :-)
