Sketch Book

HI everyone. Hope your are having a great week so far. As I was browsing thru some of my fav scrapbooking sites, I came across this post about a sketchbook idea. Then that lead me to Kristina Werner. I luv her website. She always has the most awesome ideas and is very talented. She also provides the template for the inside of your sketch book. Thanks Kristina! I used CTMH "Good Times" pp. Accent essentials cricut cartridge for the circles and calligraphy cart for the letters. The lil tag I drew and cut out of the same cs I used for the letters then used some letter stickers. Attached it with a gem brad. I used kraft cs to punch out the quotation markers with a TPS punch and tied some ribbon onto those. That's it. Now I have one area to do my sketches instead of having papers scattered everywhere or in every different notebook I own. If anyone has made one of these or are planning on making one, I would luv to see your finished project.
Thanks for looking today!
Until next time,

**Cps Card Sketch #180**

HI friends, I am entering this card for the CPS card sketch this week. I was having a heck of a time getting a half way decent picture. Everyone I took showed the card as having a yellow background. It's actually a brighter green than the picture shows. The flower is made from the same border sticker that's at the bottom of the card. I cut the scalloped border into five pieces and arranged them on a piece of CS and cut it out then just used black CS for the center using a 1" circle punch and adding a jumbo brad. The sticker borders and brad are Making Memories. I luv the colors in this card. I also used CTMH glitter glue on the scallop and flower but it's hard to see in the picture. I am wishing now that I used some gems instead of the glitter glue. Oh well live and learn. I have been enjoying looking at all the wonderful creations. I said it before but it's just amazes me what beautiful cards you ladies come up with.
Have a great day!

Until Next Time,
