Vintage Goodness Sketch

Hi ladies!
Here is our sketch for this week. Yep it is another single LO. Focusing on one large photo and an elegant and simple design.

Here is my example, yes truly, it did come from the sketch lol. I just got a bit carried away!

Card Sketches

So far we have four entries!! I know there are more than 4 people out there who love sketches and who wouldn't mind winning $15 worth of goodies! Come on, June 15 is sneaking closer!!

If you want to see the LO's that have been entered so far, you can pop in here to view them :)

I've focused on some card sketches for a change. To make it fair, if you want to use a card sketch to enter the comp, you will need to do TWO cards. They don't have to be from the same sketch, but I want to see two cards based on our sketches ;)

First off we have 'Jasmine Garden' card and an example card I created for my Mum for Mothersday.

Next we have 'Elegant in black' and the example card which I made for my hubby for his birthday and he just loved it! He really really did! Which was nice and made my heart warm and fuzzy! lol.

Giving credit where credit is due. I want to thank Shabby Princess for their awesome digi kits which I love using for sketches - go and visit them here.

Till next time girls!

Announcing our ONLINE retreat!

Hi ladies!

WELCOME LADIES to our very first retreat!

FROM FRID 27 July to FRI 3 AUG

Why and online retreat?
It might have a little something to do with the fact that the members of the CIS team have small kids, therefore it is really tricky or impossible to get away to a REAL retreat! We wanted to created something for all our members that will give them a taste of a retreat while doing some awesome projects along the way.

What have we got planned?
There will be 3 online classes, each focusing on another type of project.
* Single LO class
* Card Class
* OTP Class

There will be step-by-step workshops on every day that doesn't have a class booked in for.
That means FIVE workshops creating some gorgeous scrapbooking projects. Theses instructions are released all at once early in the morning so everyone can work through them at their own pace.

Games, chatting and competitions.
Of course the week will be FILLED to the brim with laughter, jokes, fun and PRIZES galore!! Every night!! BE there or be SQUARE!

What if you want to attend but the week doesn't suit you.
While you will miss out on the fun games and prizes. The instructions to the classes and workshops will stay online for 2 months. So you will have plenty of time to create the gorgeous goodies in your own time, at your own pace.

Do you need pj's for this retreat??
Well while it isn't a prerequisite, your family might appreciate the discretion And PJ's might pop in somewhere along the week, so make sure you have your favourite PJ's close by

What can you do if you want to see more info?
Pop in over here
Or buy access or the full works from here

Sketch 3 for May - ''Round it Off''

Hi ladies, thought it was time for a brand new sketch. I had loads of fun creating the sample LO, although it was using much more bold and bright colours than I normally do.

Hope you enjoy. And don't forget that if you create a LO using this sketch as the base, you can upload it to our gallery to stand a chance at winning a $15 pack of goodies!

Too easy!
