Hi girls,

Sorry this is a day late and a new sample short. I just didn’t get to stamp yesterday. I did decide on a layout though and made the sketch for it.

 I saw this layout first in the 2005/2006 Stampin’ Up! idea book & catalog. Then a gorgeous sample from Julie Ebersole pushed me over the edge to try it myself. Here is my old sample as well as the sketch.


 The sample was scanned and isn’t a great quality picture. What a difference 2 years make. I love taking sample pictures with my Canon Rebel XT in front of a window. I ususally set up a chair with a 12×12 piece of cardstock on it’s seat and another put up vertical against the back of the chair. I always set it to no flash. I like the pictures that come out so much better.


This weekend’s sketch challenge winner will receive the retired orange grosgrain ribbon from Stampin’ Up!. To participate in the challenge, make a card with the sketch shown and upload it on your blog or an online gallery like splitcoaststampers.com. Then come back here and add a link to your card in the comment section of this post.

I will pick a winner with random.org on Thursday morning. I made it a day longer since I post this a day late.
