Hi guys! It is FRIDAY!!! Woohoooo!
School is in FULL swing for us and from what I hear it is kicking back up in lots of places!
That means life is BUSY BUSY BUSY! With so much to do it often cuts into our scrapping time (I know it does mine!). So, have you tried a sketch? Often it can serve as a foundation for your layouts or cards....and if you really look at the sketch you actually have the possibility for 4 different layout! FLIP it!
One of my 'tips' is to print the sketches out on a 4x6 card. It is so much easier to see the different possibilities by 'flipping' that 4x6 card around until you find the perfect placement for the pictures you have!
I will print out sketches as I see them, file them and then when I'm ready to scrap I flip through the cards until I find one that works....you can even use this to plan ahead several layouts! Put your pictures and sketch together....later pull your paper and then when you have the time to sit and scrap it is all there at your fingertips!
This week I pulled a sketch that I and my friend Jo put together for a 'dream' company that we had called Sketchwarehouse.....it never came to be, but we have lots of sketches! So....here it is...
And here is a layout I did of our trip to Disney (2002....oh wow that was a while ago!)
All about our wait to ride the Tower of Terror!
Can't wait to see what you do with it! AND I hope you like my 'tip' and use it often!
Now...how about some store news....you know you only have a few more days to take advantage of the STORE WIDE sale!!! (check out the blog post from Wednesday for details!)....so....I thought I would dig deep into the store and see if I could find you some things you might have missed!
Check out these 'Rain Dots' from Cloud 9....there are 49 of them on there....with the sale it makes them $1.79!
Or how about a Clearly Petite Stamp by Daisy Bucket! It too would only be $1.79!
Then, if anyone knows me they know that I just can't get enough Jenni Bowlin Studio stuff....here is just one of the patterned papers that I LOVE and they would be a whopping .36!!!! For that you can buy a BOAT LOAD!
That is just a FEW of the MANY MANY MANY things in the store! There HAS to be something in there you want and for 40% off you need to shop NOW....when it is gone it is gone! Making room for the new stuff!!!
Hope you have a super weekend!

It is Friday AGAIN! Wow....did that go as fast for you as it did for me?
How about a new sketch from Lee....check this one out...
So....I sat down last night (finished it up this morning) and created this from her sketch:
How fun is that!?! I also feel a card coming on from this sketch! How about you???
Now...how about some stuff from the store...
I LOVE alpha stickers....they make projects sooo easy! (see the layout above I used 2 different sets....)
So, I wanted to show you some great alpha stickers from the store that you might want to add to your buy....(cuz I know you don't wanna miss out on the GREAT sales going on! We know you just got all that stuff for the kids for back to school, now treat yourself and ESPECIALLY while it is on sale!)
These are from Crate Paper Lillian Collection...think of allll the possibilities using them!
How about some fun 'shimmer' stickers from Making Memories. They make titles just POP! AND they are on sale! $2.00 a set! (HURRY) They come in SEVERAL colors and a few different fonts/sizes! (click on the image to take you right to the page in the store to see them all!)
And who doesn't love Doodlebug Alpha Stickers!!! They are fun and I think I have several of each color (so I won't run out of a letter!)
There are LOTS more in the store! Make sure you check them out and add them to the cart! NOW go and have a great week!

Wanda says, "I like painting on the transparency. I needed this class to teach me how to use a transparency and have it look good. I struggle with them. And the finished project is beautiful, I think. Not because of what I did, but because of the design. Jaz did a great job."

I was just experimenting one day and come up with this little idea. Hope you like it! Of course it won't work for all punches, just the corner punches. But if you have one of these kicking around, why not give it a try. These are a quick way to add punch to a large number of wedding invitations, thankyou notes etc.
Choose your punch
1. Punch the corners right into your paper.
2. Or you can cut about 1" wide strips of paper or cardstock and punch.
3. Arrange your pieces, mix and match them, cut them into a design
