Mid Week Sketch 9-12

Here is a pretty sketch for you, nice and easy and with Twinchies down the side (2 inch pieces of art you can create any way you like), just for some added fun. If you haven't done Twinchies before, just google some Twinchie images and you will get the idea.

And here is the gorgeous layout sample, from Home and Scrapped DT member Jewels:

Have fun :-)

Mid Week Sketch 8-12

A nice little sketch today for 2 small landscape orientation photos - or use one larger portrait one if that's what you have. There is plenty of scope for some nice embellishing, and you can put in a little stitching for some visual texture too.

And my sample, taken in bad lighting because the baby cried half the day and I couldn't get to it in daylight... 

I'm loving those little stitches I did... might do a little tutorial for them tomorrow (in good light, lol).

And here is a page from Sarah, one of the wonderful Creative Design Team members at Home and Scrapped, the bestest little scrapbooking forum on the internet:

Mid Week Sketch 7-12

Another week, another sketch :-) This one is pretty quickly put together with some bits and pieces you might have laying about the scrap stash, and with a little bit of white space you can either use a pretty background paper or do a little misting for something a bit different. Use the 2 photos as suggested, or one 4x6. Hope you like it.

And here's my sample page. It's one of those one's I'm not entirely happy with, because the photos are too dark really, but I liked them anyway. They can't all be perfect I guess, and sometimes you just want to use them anyway. It's not a great photo either, the flowers came out too blue compared to the real thing, but oh well... you get days like that... having said all that, lol, here it is:

Mid Week Sketch 6-12

I know, a day late again... just couldn't make it happen yesterday. Hope you think it's worth the wait :-)

Love pink and orange together, and I kind of hoard bits of pink and orange paper. I don't have much, but I can be a bit reluctant to use them sometimes. Do you ever do that? I am trying to get over it and use the bits I love, otherwise what's the point of having them? LOL... silly I know. Anyway, here is my sample page, with some pink and orange to brighten my day.

January Sketches Winner

Hi girls, I have chosen a winner for the January prize draw. I saw this idea on a blog somewhere else and thought it was a good one, so I did it too. I printed out everyone's linky pic and cut them all out and placed them in a pot.

Then I rummaged around in it with my eyes shut (everyone else had just left the house, of course, just when you need someone, lol!) and pulled out:

Congratulations Leesa, and thank you everyone for linking up such great pages, I just love them all and I love seeing them up here for added inspiration. Leesa, if you let me know your address I will send you your prize pack. stormscraps (at) live.com.au

Keep up the good work girls, you can still upload January sketch pages for a while yet, so get them done and share them, I love seeing them there and being inspired by your creativity.

There is another pretty prize for February, since I am in the flower making mood :-)  Put up a link to any pages you do from the February sketches and be a follower and you are in the draw :-)

Mid Week Sketch 5-12

A little later than mid week, but still not the end of the week.... sorry about that.

Inchies in this one, little one inch works of art or simple decoration, although you could use any other small embellishments instead. It's up to you whether you interpret the circles as double circles or a ring, either would work well. I have also left the journaling space out of this one, and I look forward to seeing where you want to put it - around the circles, in the space under the title, in the place of one of the photos, or somewhere else? And you could put a 4x6 photo instead of the two upright 3x4s... There's room here for a lot of variety I think. Hope you like it.

My sample shows my health conscious son, doing some weight lifting. He had had a broken hand and was trying to build up his (apparently) lazy muscles again. Looked like hard work to me, it hurt my wrists just to watch, lol, but he's always been very strong and resilient. 

Become a follower and link your page to the new February linky before the end of February to go in the draw to win a little RAK from me (picture to follow).
