In the meantime, we are prepping for a special HOLIDAY issue!  And you can be a part of that, too!

We have two ways for you to participate...

First up is our gorgeous holiday mood board.

Use this mood board to create ANY type of holiday project.  Yes, layouts, cards, altered items, etc. are all welcome.  So let's see those Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever celebration you observe projects.

Next we have a sketch challenge.
Let this sketch inspire you to create a WINTER or HOLIDAY layout (yes, layouts only please).

Welcome to the new home of Get Inspired Magazine!

We have decided to break the magazine portion of LGS away from the sketch blog and dedicate a blog totally to the magazine only.  Here you will find all previous issues of the magazine, submission guidelines as well as tons of useful information regarding Lets Get Inspired magazine.  We have also added a user gallery to showcase your LGS layouts.


The original LGG blog will remain our SKETCH only blog so please continue to upload those great layouts there.  But for magazine information, this is the place to be.  Make sure you tell your friends!
