Now, onto the sketch challenge for this month!
This sketch was made by my very creative friend, Debbie Gaydos, and I just love her sketches because they really inspire me a lot. She originally designed the sketch for Allyscraps, if you're interested in seeing more of them.
This is the page I made using this sketch. To see more detail, please visit my blog!
Here are our examples that the DT created for you.
Now that you've been inspired by Debbie's awesome sketch and the DT's samples, let's see what you create with it too! Just link your projects below.
This month we actually have two sponsors which make one big prize package you can win!!! Our first generous sponsor for this month is Dot & Whimsy!
"I have been an avid paper-crafter and scrapbooker for almost fifteen years, but a crafty person most of my life. I love combining vintage flea market finds with new stuff and turning unusual shapes into mini albums, cards and collage art!My passion is vintage inspired, with a shabby chic and retro flair. I may venture out and go with really clean lines and structure on occasion, but most of the time I go for the frilly, shabby, glittery and fun cottage style!
Awhile back I needed a little bit of crepe paper fringe for an altered project so I decided to create my own...from that experiment ON THE FRINGE handmade crepe paper trim was born. I have crafted several hundred feet of lucious, colorful trim over the past couple of years. It has been featured in the January/February 2012 edition of Simply Handmade magazine, as well as being included in a few scrapbook club kits along the way!
Aside for Dot and Whimsy on Etsy, you can also find me here:
- Design Teams: Imaginisce, Vintage Street Market, EAD Designs and My Scrapbook Nook Kit Club
- Creative Teams: Paper Issues and I Heart Ippity (Unity Stamps)
- Guest Designer For: Little Yellow Bicycle, Kraft Outlet and Miss Art's Papercrafting School
I hope you come by Dot & Whimsy for a visit! I gladly take custom orders :)
