Wonderful News!!

Hello folks!

I have been chosen to be on the Sketch Saturday DT!!  I am so thrilled to be on the team and looking forward to designing with the fabulous sketches on the blog.  Here are the talented ladies that have also won a place on the DT


and of course  

The founder of Sketch Saturday.  An

awesome team, I think you will agree.

Here is my first design as DT for challenge #14.                    

For this card I used Hot off The Press papers and pleated the paper so that the black ruler would stand proud. I layered some golden brown rik rak on top and added the wording.  For these I used my Xyron Design Runner with the chalkboard font.  I punched these out and used glue gel to add height.  The character is Dan from theKadoodle range which I coloured using prismacolor pencils, sansodor and paperstumps.  He is mounted onto cards cut with my rectangle and scalloped rectangle nestabilities.  I embossed the cream layer with Sizzix texture plates.  The final touch was a couple of pegs… just for fun.

I am also the lucky, and grateful recipient on no less than two awards from the amazingly talented Bev


That’s all for now folks, will share some photos of the projects we made in the classes I taught yesterday at The Craft Barn soon. It was a real hoot! Thanks for being such a great classes…. you know who you are!!

Take care and keep crafting!!

  24. Hi Sandra

    I wanted to say a big thank you for the class at the Craft Barn showing how to make the ‘Jack in the Box’.
    You’ll be pleased to know I was able to show the children in my after school club how to make one ( adapted to suit the age group). Everyone was really pleased with their results.
    Keep up the good work – Love…….Marie
