August 31 Sketch Challenge

Hey there friends! We are so happy that you've come by today
and hope that our newest sketch challenge is just what
you've been looking for to get your creative juices flowing!
We know this time of year is busy with establishing schedules
as many of our children are back to school by now.
Certainly hope that will provide just a bit more time
to craft for some of us as well!
We appreciate you coming by since we all know how life can
get ahead of us and there's always so much to do. 

Are you still thinking Summer projects? Sunny days, watermelon, bbq's,
days at the pool and little vacations! Or are you thoughts turning just a bit more chilly?
Or are cool Autumn days, pumpkin patches and Fall decorations taking up your
thoughts? Either way, there is still so much inspiration for us to use, wether you
are scrapping your Summer vacation photos from this year or
doing last year's Halloween festivities. There is still so much to be inspired by! 

We hope that you love the sketch and love the projects we have to share with you today...

August 23 Hot August Nights (vehicle) Die Cut Challenge

Hello friends! Today is another reveal day for us at this time around
we are getting to our Die Cut Challenge
and our theme...

Our theme was inspired by all the awesome car and motorcycle
shows that are all around the States during the Summer. As a matter of fact
this very weekend in the  San Francisco Bay Area in my neck of the woods
we're having a car show! All the old hot rods are so cool! Yay baby! 
But as you can see from our Design Team, we weren't just
thinking cars...any vehicle or something you can ride on would be great!
Remember, die cuts please that are related to this theme! Thanks!

And onto our Design Team projects...

August 17 Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday all!
A happy Friday for us means another Sketch Challenge
reveal and hopefully that means happy for you all as well!
We have really been enjoying all the participation
this Summer in our challenges and want to thank you 
all for the support to our site!
Thanks for joining in as always!

Our sketch this time is something a little more simple,
a rest from the last more challenging sketch. This can be kept
in the CAS style or embellished to your hearts content...

It is always exciting to see what the Design Team has made and really
shows you how differently you can interpret a sketch.
The base is always there but the details is what makes it yours!

Here is what our team created...
