I have to say that last week’s Freshly Made Sketches gallery was simply awesome! There was so much inspiration there! And I strongly suspect this week will be the same. Because this new sketch is just fabulous, don’t you think?! No surprise since the designer of this one is the incredible Cindy Lovell! I just love her style and was so excited to see this sketch.
I posted yesterday on the Freshly Made Sketches Facebook Page that I seem to have an overabundance of designer paper. I took a small step towards addressing that with this card. I just loved this Sweater Weather DSP last year and I have no idea how it is possible that I still have so much of it but I was happy to see it as I was pondering this sketch. That herringbone piece was already cut with the “thx” so it was meant to be! (The cut out is from the Circle Card Thinlits) I used leaves from the Thankful Tablescape Kit from last year too. The card was practically made for me at this point. I chose patterns from the rest of the DSP to complete the sketch, added a Chocolate Chip layer underneath the sentiment to help it pop and a button with some Metallic Baker’s Twine sans metallic thread. (I was using the little metallic threads for something else and found that this remaining twine is nice for things where you need a more Vanilla twine.)
I hope you enjoy this blast from the past card and maybe it will inspire YOU to pull out some old DSP that is begging to be used. Seriously….it does not want to be hoarded, it is crying out to be on your crafting table. *smile*
The design team has created a fabulous collection to show you (and I’m pretty sure Rita pulled out some retired paper too so I’m in good company). Have fun with this and I can’t wait to see what you create.
I’ll be back on Friday with a fun project I created for my hostess club meeting this month. Until then, have a great week!
