Only 26 sleeps to go

It is almost Christmas - where on earth did 2007 go?????

I hope you are all having a great week and I do hope you have managed to do some scrapbooking this week????

This week (just in time for Christmas) is a gorgeous Card Sketch by one of our CISters Sue Jones. Thanks Sue for such a lovely card and a beautiful card sketch.

I am really enjoying creating these digital sketches but I do have a few things to learn still (more like a dozen) but it's so much fun.

Here is the gorgeous card created by Sue - thanks for sharing with us Sue!!!!

Here is the hand drawn sketch by Sue!

Here is my card - "Merry Christmas". I have used some of the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding range of pp and part of a card kit - both bought at Crafting in Style!

Here is a layout by Tam, using the card sketch - great idea Tam and I just love that photo - I think we all need to do a layout like this one!!! Tam has used the alphas, BG periphery olive, periphery merlot and the some of the blossoms from the Crafting in Style Shop!

Now hold onto your seats - our most enthusiastic team member this month is Terri!!!! Terri has created not 1, not 2, not even 3 cards but a grand total of 7 cards - what a great start to the Christmas craziness. Thanks for your gorgeous cards Terri.

Now here is a gorgeous alternative to cards and layouts and still using the same sketch and turning the sketch around a wee bit to suit the project. Nae has created these gorgeous pencil holders - wouldn't these beauties look great on your desk or if you "have" to give them away they would look great on someone elses desk lol.

Thank you to Sue, Tam, Terri and Nae for creating such lovely cards, layouts and OTP.

Well ladies I am sure this will inspire YOU ALL to go out and create some beautiful cards or layouts or even step outside your comfort zone and create a beautiful OTP.

Don't forget to make sure to share your gorgeous creations with us in the Crafting in Style Sketch Gallery !!!

Next week is another gorgeous layout by one of our CISters - I will keep you guessing for now.

Make sure to pop into the forum on Friday as there is a very special person celebrating her birthday tomorrow - so come in and say Happy Birthday to her.

Crafting in Style are also running a Christmas Workshop so make sure to pop into the shop and for a small fee you can have access to all these gorgeous projects.

Have a great week ladies and I hope to "see" you all online and please don't forget to leave a lovely comment for our talented Sketch Blog Team.

Happy Scrapping

Good Morning

Hello ladies, hope today finds you all well and scrapping!

This week we are bringing you a beautiful sketch by one of our CISters, Ali.

Thanks Ali for creating such a lovely sketch to work with.

Here is the digital sketch created by Jolene.

Here is the hand drawn sketch by Ali.

Here is the layout "Plot, Search, Find" created by Ali - I just love the colours and that very huge bracket. Great family layout Ali.

Here is the layout "Sydney Harbour Cruise Highlights" created by Terri - I just love that great photo and how Terri has created her title. From the Crafting in Style shop, Terri has used Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter paper and the Perhaps letter stickers.

Here is the layout "It's Over" created by Marni - don't you just love what she has done with those colours and papers. A great, fresh combination.

Here is the layout "Smile" created by Nae - aren't those photos so cute and what a great smile Willow has.

Here is the layout "Very Merry" by Tam - lol don't you love those very merry photos. Tam has used Heidi Swapp alphas and Hambly overlay from the Crafting in Style shop.

This layout "Time Away" has been created by Jolene - don't you just love all the buttons and journalling blocks she has used and those photos make you want to go to the beach and play in the sand and water. I am sure everything on this layout can be purchased from the Crafting in Style shop (if Jolene left any for the rest of us lol)

And here is my layout "A Daughter is" a day brighter and a heart warmer. From the Crafting in Style shop I have used Basic Grey Perhaps papers, Queen & Co Felt Fusion, Cats Life journalling stamp.

Well I certainly hope you have all been inspired by all of these beautiful layouts.

Thanks to Ali for creating a lovely sketch and layout and thanks to Terri, Marni, Nae, Tam & Jolene for using this great sketch to create their beautiful layouts.

Next week we are bringing you another card sketch so if you haven't finished off your christmas cards yet you will love using this card sketch.

Have a great week and I hope you get a lot of scrapping done. Remember when you have created your layouts using our sketches make sure to upload them to our Sketch Gallery so we can all enjoy them.

Happy Scrapping
