I love to scrapbook and to do crafty projects. It is my therapy. It is an outlet for me to be creative. Doing so helps me relax and keeps me sane. I wish I could get paid in doing what I love to do. Since I love to scrapbook and be crafty, I figure why not show what I create.

Entries for a Design Team

Well feeling a bit creative lately and also have been working on some LOs and cards for the Sketch Support Design Team Call.  I really liked using their wonderful sketches they provided for this call.  I had fun creating my own variation on each of the sketches.

Check them out...

On my first entry I used this add-on sketch #9 to create an invitation card.

For this card, I was able to use up some scraps that I had on hand to put it together.  I used a small tag with a ribbon for the word "Smile".  I stamped the word "Celebrate" to create the center piece and also cut out the edges to resemble the print on the black background paper. I also popped it up to give it some dimension.   I used the flash piece as a tab to open the card.  Inside is "Who, What, Where, & When" that I cut out with my Cricut using the Stamping cartridge.

On my second entry, I used this card sketch #11 to create a one-page LO.

For this LO, I immediately knew what pictures I wanted to use.  Even though they are a few years old, I just love how the kids were just sitting so nicely and posing for the camera.  I think they look so cute.  Well I used two pictures instead of 3 panels as my variation.  The materials I used for most of what you see is from My Mind's Eye the "Ooh LaLa" collection.  I added my own solid color paper as the background.  I had some brads that I added onto the corners.  I roughed up the edges of the printed background panel and chalked the edges of the strips with Chestnut Roan.  For the title I stenciled in the letters and popped up my journal circle.

Since I was on the card sketch, I created a card for personal use.  I plan to give it to my friend's mom who just had surgery.

For this card, I used paper from My Mind's Eye the "So Sophia" collection.  As well with this one, I roughed up the edges of the background panel.  Chalked the edges of the the strips using Blue and Chestnut Roan.  I popped up the three red squares to give them dimension.  I then added floral rub-ons and letter stickers.

On my last entry, I used this one-page sketch #14 to create a two-page LO.

I really liked this sketch so much that I made it into a two-page LO to be able to fit these pictures I wanted to include.  (My husband and kids can be so silly!)  I used paper from Dream Street Papers Inc. the "Fun & Games" collection.  (I thought it was perfect with the pictures.)  With my variation, I stretched the sketch to two pages.  Instead of the banners, I used my new circular 12x12 template to create the dots to connect the pages.

For the title panel, I put in a star cut-up from the paper collection instead of the candles.  Used chipboard letters for the title.  I used the circle cut-up instead of strips for my journaling.

Here I cut out the oval shape and the "havin fun!" words from the 12x12 cut-up sheet.

Well thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed viewing my entries.  At this moment, I am planning on creating an advent calendar.  Hopefully I can get the materials together and start working on the project. I am very excited about it.  Will post as soon as I get it done.

Happy Thanksgiving,
