Card Sketch #7: A Rejuvenation!!

Posted in Card Sketches at 9:21 am by alimom4

Good Monday Mornin’ Everyone!  Noella and I thought it would be fun to rejuvenate Card Sketch #7 with the current CY Design Team in charge of interpretations. Here is the link to the last time the Card Sketch was posted. Several people did interpretations as you can see in the Comments section!

Here’s  Card Sketch #7 by our very own Sketch Artist, Noella! 

There’s a reason I suggested Sketch #7 as the one to use today. My little boy, Noah, (our baby) turned seven years old a few days ago. So, thinking of Noah’s birthday,  I thought it’d be fun to have the DT design from Sketch #7 .

Then, when I searched out and saw the sketch I HAD to laugh!

Coincidence… my little boy’s  name is “Noah Adam Scott…” and look at the initials on Sketch #7 that Noella created awhile back for CY!! LOL

“N.A.”

Her initials ,of course, but what a funny coincidence! OK, Enough of my stories… LOL…

…On we go to our CY Design Team’s interpretations! 

CY Design Team member Jenifer Cowles has created a card that is so gently warm and welcoming! 

[Don't you just adore that row of colourful little houses? So fun & funky! We have small towns that boast this phenomenon here in the Maritimes! More on that later...]

 CY Design Team member  Beth Price created a card that is soft and so feminine in all its shabby-chic splendour!

[Oh Beth, can you make ME some flowers like that? Gorgeous!! **Big Grin**]

Beth Price  went “all out” for us and created a second card, adding some bling and a friendly, winged birdie to the design!

[Someone will SMILE when they receive this sweet card! I did when I saw it!  I *heart* the stripes in those colours! ]

CY Design Team member Ann Seleshanko created a unique birthday card, incorporating stitching and a tag into her design!

[I see buttons, and swirls!!! And paisley!! Oh my!! Another creation someone will just LOVE  receiving!]

CY Guest Designer Feature: Carla Robinson!

Posted in Card Sketches, CY Design Team at 10:20 am by alimom4

This morning we’re featuring Carla Robinson,  one of the three “sisters” who make the “Sisterhood of Scrap” Blog such a GREAT place to go for inspiration, scrappy tidbits, and design ideas. 

Meet Carla~

carla-robinson-cy-gdt-april-091

Carla was kind enough to send me her bio to share with ya’ll.

 “Hi everyone! I am Carla, living in a small town in Newfoundland, Canada with my husband and our 4 wonderful children. I homeschool all of my children; they range in age between 11 and 16 years old. DH runs a recording studio from our home. As a family, we love spending time together.  

I started scrapbooking in 2004  after being encouraged by my older sister. My style is fairly simple, I think. I like clean lines, but I also like a bit of doodling and the collage-y look. My inspiration comes mainly from online galleries and from magazines. In my free time, I enjoy reading, sewing and baking.” 

 About Guest Designing at CY, Carla told me “I am super excited to be doing this :)”

Hey Carla… :) …Guess what?… WE are super-excited that you are here at Creatively Yours this month! Yahoo!

Here’s a link to Carla’s Blog.  It’s called “The Pursuit of Scrappyness!” [LOL! PERFECT name!]  Go check out her awesome LOs!

I just have to share a post of Carla’s– it’s about her Scrap Room. Isn’t this GREAT? When are you coming to help me organize MY scrap room, Carla? Awesome job!

Welcome to Creatively Yours!! We’re really glad you’re here!

 Here’s Carla’s interpretation of  Noella’s Sketch #24…  sooo pretty. Lovin’ that stitching!

CY Guest Designer Feature: Deanne Burton!

Posted in Card Sketches, CY Design Team, Designer's Creations at 2:01 pm by alimom4

 It’s always nice to get to know our guests better!

“Meet” Deanne Burton, one of three Guest designers at Creatively Yours this month! ! 

deanne-burton-cy-gdt-april-091

Multi-talented and a great multi-tasker, Deanne is a teacher, mother, sister and daughter, wife,  friend and SCRAPPER!!!

Deanne’s Bio:

“My name is Deanne Burton. I’m a loving wife and mom. I am also a teacher of fantastic grade 6 kids (love ‘em to pieces! Super bunch!) I live in Newfoundland, and wouldn’t live in any other place in the whole wide world!
I should have said first and foremost, I AM A SCRAP ADDICT! There I said it!I have always been creative and have always done some sort of craft for as long as I can remember (even as a toddler!) Right from the  first time I pout a crayon in my hand, to now, I have loved to create.
Scrapbooking allows me to do EXACTLY what I want with a picture and piece of paper! Awesome feeling!
My scrapbooking is my passion, my pasttime, it is ME!! I HATE sitting with nothing to do. Idleness is just not “my thang!!!” My hands have to be doing something, so what better to put into busy hands than some great pictures, pretty papers and ribbon, brads, buttons, paint, chipboard, rubons, flowers, ink, glue dots, stamps, and scissors!!!!!!!!
I just love it, I really do!!!!!!”
 
Thanks Deanne! I have had the pleasure of working with Deanne in  couple of other places on the web. Just love her enthusiasm for this great hobby/paper-craft/memory saving activity!  
At Scrapbooker’s Club House, I wrote a feature about Deanne and will share it. It includes photos of some of Deanne’s fave projects!
Below you will ALSO find Deanne’s interpretation of Creatively Yours’  card sketch #24!
Welcome, welcome to CY,  Deanne! We’re thrilled to have you wih us!
