Senior Design Team

Liz knew she would scrap photos of her adorable son's first 6 years as soon as she saw this sketch. She used Sunny Garden Designer Paper from Stampin' Up supplied by Catherine Pooler. She punched out some flowers and added some buttons to finish off the layout.

Tracy has used this week's sketch challenge to create a waterfall card. Our Design Team sponsor for the month, Catherine Pooler supplied her with these fun papers from the Love Letter collection. For further pictures you can visit Tracy's blog to see the pull out and finished inside of the card.

Regan used this weeks sketch for the cover of this little mini. She used Greenhouse Gala designer series, the cute green button and Daffodil Delight ribbon, provided by this months sponsor Catherine Pooler, to create this 5X5 book for her daughter's Bible verse ABC's. For more photos and a complete supply list, please visit her blog.

Design Team

Kimberly loved this challenge because it gave her the ability to create a scrapbook layout using multiple photos! Kim was able to capture the memory of when her daughter was little playing in the sandbox at home. She gave the photos a vintage feeling by inking around the edges and using papers and embellishments from Crate Paper's Restoration line. Kim also used machine stitching and paper tearing for an extra special detail to complete the look. Check out Kim's blog for more inspiration!

Angi had fun making a card with this week's sketch. Angi is the mother of a teenager and thought it would be fun to make a cute card with her new EAD Vinyl Stickers. Instead of using ribbon on her card, Angi added mesh in a cool "Hot Pink" color. Be sure to check out Angi's' blog for more design inspiration.

Auxiliary Design Team

Jennifer was inspired by the three flowers from this week's sketch to make this floral friendship card! The flowers were stamped, cut out, and popped up off of the vintage sheet music to give the card extra dimension. Head over to her blog to see just how she did it!

C chose to create a 2 page layout (page 1 above) highlighting her family's "White Christmas" in Raleigh, North Carolina. Some simple inking and embossing combined with some "Just Chillin'" paper from Close to my Heart, journaling and she was done. Visit her blog to see both pages and get more details about the supplies she used.

Wow !
