Simple Shapes

Can anyone tell me what happened to the month of January?  It has been an incredibly fast month. One minute we are celebrating the new year and the next thing we know we are headed into the first week of February! But I have to admit that it has been a great month for crafting. We had a week of with cold temperatures, so I settled in with my crafting supplies and created a bunch of cards. 

The two cards that I am sharing today were created with the January sketch at the The Sketch File.  The simple shapes on the sketch make it easy to use creatively.  Kathy and I hope you enjoy creating a project or two based on the sketch. Please post your project at The Sketch File. Below are two versions of the January sketch:

Wiper Cards

You've got to take a few moments to explore the following link: Frenchie Stamps.  As you scroll down thru the post, I hope you will be inspired as I have been.  Frenchie has put together a fabulous video to show us how she created wiper cards, like the ones I've created above.  They are quite easy to create and so fun! I'm totally hooked!  These cards are interactive. The recipient holds the left edge of the card stationary while pushing the right edge to the left. This allows the "pop up" to appear (balloons/monster in my cards). I've already made a few winter or Christmas versions of these wiper cards, which I will share in another post.

Thanks for stopping by!

Make a Wish

If you are looking for some inspiration, there is a new sketch available at The Sketch File.  I've created this "Make a Wish" card based on the sketch. You can also visit The Sketch File to see what Kathy has created with the sketch.  We would love to see what you do with it.  

Here's a few versions of the sketch:
