Sketch #40 - 28th February - Sponsored by The Craft Barn!

It's the last Saturday of the month so that means that this weeks sketch is being sponsored by our kind & generous, regular sponsor...

and this weeks winner will receive these beautiful stamps from their Paper Artsy Minis collection...

I think these are just adorable :)

Paper Artsy offer an eclectic mix of funky and cool unmounted rubber stamps, and you can get the following collections from The Craft Barn..

Squiggly Ink, Ink and the Dog, Urban Snapshot,

Cat's Meow, Minis (perfect for ATCs)

If you live near Lingfield in Surrey why don't you visit The Craft Barn today (Saturday 28th) as they are having 2 free demos of the new Kadoodle stamp collections... The Igglies by Carol Staples, and Lexie Wilson will be showcasing the new designs by our friend and fellow DT member Sandra Dry.
Incidently, next Saturday will be Sandy and Ian's 1st Birthday Craft Fest, a day full of free demo's and events, as they say themselves... "Simply turn up and be inspired".

While you're there you can get your hands on the hilarious and quirky new Flippin Women decoupage designs, they have both a front and a back so are ideal for acetate apertures
They are so funny! I love the aerobics, pilates and yoga designs especially LOL!

Ok, onto this weeks sketch and here's a sketch for those of you who love lots of layers / different papers, we might get more scrapbookers taking part this week too, maybe by substituting the sentiment for some journalling perhaps ;)

Here is the fabulous card made by our guest designer, Susan.
Susan, thank you so much for joining our team these past 2 weeks and for sharing your lovely work with all of us. xx

Here are the fab creations by the design team...

I cannot upload my card just yet, as the battery is dead on my camera (again!) and I can't find my charging unit. I'll add mine asap, even if I have to use my mobile (which takes poor photos).

Ok, over to you lovely people!... Please can you all add a direct link to your work, if you need to know how to do this then please see THIS POST.
Thank you xx

Sketch #37 - February 7th - Jeanette's DT week

Welcome to week #37 of Sketch Saturday. Our wonderful Jo is getting a well-deserved break! I am Jeanette and this week it is my turn to be the DT who creates a sketch to share with you. I am pretty new at this sketch designing business so I hope you all like it and have fun using it! You can insert a sentiment wherever you wish or leave it out all together! Have fun! I can't wait to see all the different ideas you will come up with! We are so happy to see all your beautiful entries week after week!
My wonderful friend Denise of Whimsy Stamps is generously sponsoring us this week and here's a look at the wonderful stamps from the February release that she will send the lucky winner!

Whimsy Stamps is an art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. Their stamps are made from deeply etched rubber, mounted on Cling Cushion Foam, and once trimmed, they are ready to use with an acrylic block. The stamps can be stored on the laminated card included in the retail packaging. Whimsy ships internationally and you can email Denise for all international requests!

Here are our takes on this sketch.

My fellow DT & Denise have made stunning cards.

Visit our blogs for our card details!



Have a great day everyone and I hope you find some time today to get a little inky :)

Hugs Jeanette
