September 25th Sketch

Hi everyone, and welcome to another sketch from the fab Krissy. :) Before I share the sketch, I wanted to say a special hello to the scrapbookers from Norway who find inspiration in the blog! We'd love to see your creations in the gallery and those of all the blog followers, so please don't be shy!
This sketch of Krissy's is quite funky and geometric in design and is made using the free Kaiser digi kit.

First up we have the lovely Ilona's first layout for the team. Ilona has made use of Krissy's geometric shapes to include some of her own, which looks great.

Next up we have Kerry's layout, the very cute "My Little Guy". Kerry has shown the versatility of the sketch by rotating it to best suit her photos.

Hilde has also had a play with the sketch this week, and come up with this brilliant layout about a day at the local airshow. Love how the geometric design plays so well in her layout.

And lastly my bright and fun layout about my son and the relationship he has with his cousin and Poppy. I've made use of some of the bright and fun Lime Rickey and Lemonade papers from CIS.

Well that's it from us for another week and month! Hope that you have all made use of the sketches this month and entered the sketch layout comp on the site. Please upload any creations from the September sketches to the CIS gallery with the code sketchsep in the tag field so they are easy to find and you will be in the running for this month's prize

Take care and Krissy will be back next week with the first of the October sketches and a sketch with a difference. :)

Hiya CISters :D Welcome to another sketch for September!Wow cant believe how quickly this year is going :O

This is the sketch I created for this week using digital elements from Jessica Sprague and Shabby Princess.Hope you all like it!I love how different all of our examples are each week :)

This is my example "backyard cricket" Ive had these photos for ages and this sketch was perfect for them :D I used 2 smaller pic's instead of one large portrait photo.

This is Ali's gorgeous LO "Summer" Love the colours Ali and what cool braids :) Thanks Ali!
This week Hilde has used the sketch to create some gorgeous cards Hilde said this "This time I chose to make cards with your sketch. I have two boys myself, so when I have the opportunity to go wild with pink and bling, I have a ball! BTW, the base of both the cards are made with journaling notes from Prima. Making cards of those notes are a great if you get tired of them – or have used them on “every” layout."Awesome thanks Hilde :)
We also have a LO from Kerry this week :) I love that photo!Gorgeous colours too :) Thanks Kerry!

Dont forget to leave some love for our fandabbydosey sketch team for all their gorgeous sketchie inspiration!

Cant wait to see lots of sketch LO's in the gallery, dont forget to used the code when you upload so we all know where they are :) Thanks :)

The gorgeous Sara will be back with next weeks update :)

September 11 Sketch

Hi everyone,

Here's another great sketch from Krissy that we have all loved putting our own touches on for you.

First up we have Kerryn's last sketch team layout. :( Ilona stepped into the sketch team when Kerryn became a DT member, but Kerryn volunteered to give Ilona a bit of breathing room and create one last sketch for the team. So here is her wonderful layout Chuggin' Along -

Secondly we have Kerry's first sketch team layout - I Love UR Smile. Isn't it gorgeous? Love the colours, the felt heart in the title and the little embies above the felt border. Too cute!

And lastly my take on the sketch - Look Mum, I Can Ride. Mason loves his new bike, so I couldn't resist scrapping these pics and using the yummy BG Lemonade and Lime Rickey papers from CIS.

Please upload any creations from the September sketches to the CIS gallery with the code sketchsep in the tag field so they are easy to find and you will be in the running for this month's prize.

Thanks everyone for stopping by. The lovely Krissy will be back next week with her teams awesome creations. :)


Welcome to Our New Sketch Team Members

Hi everyone!
I'm Sara, former member of the lovely Kerryn's half of the sketch team, and now lucky enough to be heading up half the team along with the other gorgeous leader Krissy who inspires us all each week with her sketches. I'd like to introduce the two new lovely ladies who make up my half of the sketch team - Kerry Snell and Ilona Siewert.
Kerry is no stranger to the sketch blog, having being a very wonderful guest team member during August. Kerry is a SAHM with 2 gorgeous children Hayden and Makayla and she has been married for 12years to her dh Chris. She lives in Victoria.

Kerry says her style of scrapping tends to change a bit depending on what she is doing. She doesn't know how to label her style but loves to use layers of paper,dimension of whatever is possible and she loves her distresser.

Kerry is very much looking forward to inspiring everyone with her takes on Krissy's sketches each week.

Ilona is married to Patrick and has two children - Cheverny and Jayden. She has been scrapping for about 4 years and loves that it is never boring. She scraps layouts mainly about her children, and has a love of sketches. She lives in Holland.

Please make these two lovely ladies welcome. :)

Hi everyone! Welcome to another update of our sketchblog :D This month is a very special month as we welcome to our sketchie family some fandabbydosey sketchie girls :) So today is the first of our introductions of our new girls :) This week I am introducing the girls who will be on my team and next week Sara will be introducing the girls on her team :)

Please welcome Hilde to our blog! Here is a little bit about Hilde


My name is Hilde Aaslund, also known as Scoobie from a number of boards and my blog. I live in the southern part of Norway and I must confess I am addicted to card making and scrapping.

I’m married to Cliff, the proud mum of two boys, 7 and 10 years old, and I work full time as an engineer at a construction site. I have to English Cocker Spaniels, both of them trained in agility and I am an agility instructor as well once a week. As this wasn’t enough I have a cat and a garden I love working in.

I’m so proud to be part of this great CIS Sketch Team. I find working with sketches very important for developing my skills and a great excuse to go “outside my box”."

Please welcome Ali to our team!Here is a little bit about Ali:

"Ali Abernethy lives in Canberra with her husband Rob, two kids - Zoe (13) and Angus
(11), a spoilt cat and an insane Jack Russell.  As well as scrapping Ali enjoys
reading, swimming and riding her yellow scooter."

Welcome aboard girls!We are thrilled to have you on the team :)
