September Update 3

Back again with another project to share using the September Simplicity sketch.

This time it's me, Kathy here to share another picture page for my mini album.
This page shows "Shaw's Corner" in Ayot St Lawrence, Hertfordshire which was the home of George Bernard Shaw.

I've punched the squares for the border areas from another photo taken on same visit which had lots of flowers in the foreground.

There's still time to join in with this sketch, and you can make anything you fancy using it - just don't forget to pop back and leave you link so we can come and see what you've made.

Happy Crafting!

September Update 2

Hi there, and welcome to another September Sketch File Update
This week we have a new DT member to introduce you to - please welcome
Keryn McNicol 
who has been using the Sketch File for her own card-making over the last couple of years and now will be making projects especially for sharing on the Sketch File Blog.
Keryn says: 
I'm married, second time around, to Steve and have 2 grown up daughters
Eve got a few health issues but mainly with mobility and cant work but I'm gradually adjusting to that having worked hard all of my life.
We had 2 super little dogs and recently came home with a puppy to join our fold!  They are my main source of entertainment whilst my crafting is my main source of sanity!
I hope to come along and 'see' you all individually and see more of your beautiful work.  My style is quite straight forward; I get messier than my papers if I try the distressed look and as for goth, steampunk and fairies I can appreciate it but my fingers just cant do it!

Keryn's first creation especially for The Sketch File is below and we can't wait to see more.  

Come back soon for more ideas using this sketch, and to leave your link so we can come and see what YOU make with it - anything you want to make using the sketches can be linked here - cards, ATCs Inchies, Twinchies, LOs - it's up to you!

Happy Crafting!

September Update 1

Two new projects using the September sketch which we hope will inspire you. to have a go at using it yourself.
These wonderful ideas are brought to you by DT member Jackie who's designs are always a treat to see (do check her blog as Jackie posts regularly about the weddings and other events she creates for from her own shop) and by our special Guest Designer Kaz - you can find lots more of her amazing work on her fabulous blog Slightly Wonky Crafts )
(don't you just love that pretty bunting used in place of the squares- what a great idea!)

(beautiful colours, a fab image and a very apt sentiment for this summer!)

Here's a reminder of the sketch
Over to you. 
Any sort of crafting project counts here, so come back and let us know where 
we can see your creations by leaving a link.  
We'll be back next week with more ideas.
Happy Crafting

September 2011 - September Simplicity

A big Thank You to those who crafted with our tricky August sketch.  
You'll probably be relieved to see that this month we have a really CAS (Clean And Simple) layout for you to try.
To start off the crafting with this sketch we have a gorgeous card from Lynda and a lovely twinchie (2" square) from Carol to show you.  Remember any sort of crafting goes here so please give it a try and come back to let us see where we can see your September Simplicity projects

Here is the September Sketch followed by our first projects - please come back next week to see what else we've been making
