Two for Tuesday Inspiration

Hello, I'm back again with a few more projects to share. Both projects were inspired by our current sketch at The Sketch File. Kathy and I are both hoping you'll join us and share a project or two based on the sketch. As you can see, I decided to create both a card and a scrapbook page. I played around with re-sizing a few of the sketch elements, especially on my scrapbook page. That's the beauty of the can be changed to suit your needs. Shrink it, expand it, rotate it, flip it or do whatever it takes to create a project.   See you at The Sketch File!

Side Step Birthday Card

I decided to make a card for an upcoming birthday. I wanted to use a card base that was different than my usualflat card so I went with this 3-D side step card. I haven't made one of these in ages! I ended up having to review tutorials on in order to jog my memory. As I started the card, I knew that I wanted to include a floral arrangement but now I'm not sure it was the best choice.  I guess that means I'll have to make another card with different embellishments!  Also, the dark blue cardbase acutally looks black in my photo, but I assure you that it is dark blue.

Simple Layers Sketch @ The Sketch File

Yesterday I spent a greater part of the day shoveling our driveway. It snowed and snowed and snowed! We got around 10" inches, followed by freezing rain, and now it's raining. It means we will have another day to hang out together inside. The local schools are closed and the danger of flooding is an issue. I hope everyone stays safe.  If you are stuck inside today, maybe you'll want to craft a project or two. Today's card is inspired by our current "Simple Layers" sketch at The Sketch File. I decided to use the numeral 68 to replace the background circle in the sketch. What do you think, are your ready to play along with us and show us what you can do with the sketch? It doesn't have to be a card, it can be a scrapbook page or whatever you are inspired to create, but either way, please link it up with us at The Sketch File.

Hearts for Simple Layers Sketch

We're back with more inspiration for our current "Simple Layers" sketch. Since Valentine's Day is just ahead, we are both sharing cards with hearts. You can view Kathy's inspirational card at The Sketch File and post the card you create there as well. We're looking forward to seeing it. Here are two versions of our sketch....remember, you can rotate it, flip it, shrink it or do whatever you want as long as we can still see the sketch in your creation.

February Simple Layers sketch Week 2

It's time to revisit our current sketch and share a card or two with you. This card is based on Kathy's Simple Layers sketch and it's our February sketch at the The Sketch File. We would love for you to use the sketch to create a project and link it up with us at The Sketch File. My card doesn't really stretch the sketch in too many ways but remember that it's okay to change the sketch a bit as Kathy did with her incredible card (go HERE to take a peek at it). You will totally be inspired!
