SSINK's Contraband Challenge!


Here is SSINK's Contraband Challenge...And I think that I failed -- because even though I used my cricut, American Crafts cardstock and glitter cardstock and some lavender tulle -- I still needed to use my Stampin' up banner die and "Happy Easter" Stamp.

Come Try the SSINKLS19 Layout Sketch

Come join the SSINK Design Team with this minimalist sketch challenge:

You can see that I follow sketches pretty close -- for me, I enjoy the challenge of being pushed to work within preset constraints. What I love about this sketch is the simplicity of it -- and I love the empty space to the right, because there is plenty to focus on the left!

A Card Sketch Challenge: SSINKCS19


There's a cool Card Sketch Challenge at SSINKCS19:


So I changed a few things around - but I am happy with it, and the ladies at my card class had fun with this. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate to measure -- so I threw my craft night ladies a curve ball: I didn't measure the strips and showed them how to "eyeball it" when it comes to matting a layer. It is a matter of doing what feels right instead of being right, with a ruler. And I have to say, we had a lot of fun. And my tip is this - don't through out your scraps - they are the right touch for cards.
