Laura's Sketch 18 & Rae's Bonus Sketch

I am always off on Wednesdays, and this morning I had no appointments or other things to do. Well, I could have spend some time on cleaning the house, but instead I did some scrapping. It is so good to spend time on something you really enjoy doing.

This week is the last week of the 2 Sketches 4 You Winter Design Team. I really enjoyed their gorgeous work in the past 3 months. The girls are very talented and always inspired me. Thanks, girls!!

My first card is based on Laura's Sketch 18. I can't get enough of the lovely Love Notes collection from Making Memories. I so love the colors and designs. The collection is perfect for Love/Valentine themed cards, but this time I made a birthday card.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, ribbon: Making Memories Love Notes Letter stickers: American Crafts Daiquiri Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, EK Success Circle Punch Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: Prima Marketing Say It With Crystals, foam tape

The other card is based on Rae Barthel's bonus sketch. I made this card last evening and the other one this morning. The sketches are totally different, but my cards turned out to look very much alike. Probably because I used the same papers and Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One dies. I just HAD to use my new dies that arrived in the mail yesterday. I did some hand stitching on this card. Usually I use my sewing machine, but this time I wanted to hand stitch like Peet Roeven. Peet's cards are always stunning, and the hand stitching adds a lovely touch to her cards. Peet revealed her 'secret' here. My stitching is not as neat as Peet's, but she is way more experienced. :)



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, ribbon: Making Memories Love Notes Flower: Prima Marketing Button: Autumn Leaves Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, QuicKutz Alphabet Maddie Anne, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, EK Success Corner Punch Large Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: thread, foam tape

I can't wait to find out who will be on the 2 Sketches 4 You Spring Design Team. I am sure that Kazan and Laura have chosen a fabulous team.

Have a wonderful day!
