Card Share: 47 (American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan)


Do you love sketches? Then you'll love the Simple Scrapper Sketches challenge we have going on at Paper Issues. Jennifer Wilson from Simple Scrapper (a great site for sketch inspiration) is sponsoring the design team and she provided us with a wonderful and inspiring sketch (see above).

I created a birthday card for this challenge (for one of my sisters). As you can see, I followed the sketch pretty closely, using chipboard frames in place of the 3x3 photos.


Here's a detail shot of the frames which include some of the arrow action you see in the sketch.


Rather than stitching across all of the circles, and creating a grid, I stitched around three of the circles with embroidery floss.





So what do you think? Are you inspired to print out the sketch and join in on this challenge? I hope so!

Link up a project (or two or three or...) and you could win a 1-month subscription to Simple Scrapper (includes 5 new sketches, a story starter idea list and access to older sketches, and paper and digi layered templates) or downloadable versions of Everyday Storyteller 1 & Everyday Storyteller 2 idea books:

"The Everyday Storyteller idea books...help scrapbookers bring their stories to life with simple ideas for memory keeping. With advice for paper, digital and hybrid scrapbooking, each volume includes more than 100 behind-the-scenes tips, tricks and techniques for capturing moments, telling stories and creating memories."

There's also a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store. When you shop, you can use the code LISA20 to get 20% off your order and there's free U.S. shipping on orders $60+.
