With great appreciation for a job well done, we must say “goodbye and good luck” to our December 2008- May 2009 Design Team member Evelien Verschelde. Evelien has had to resign her DT position at CY.
Evelien, please know we have loved your work and invite you to reapply for the CY-DT at a later date when “life” allows.
In closing, I’d like to share with everyone one of my favourite layouts from Evelien, done for Creatively Yours. Enjoy!
Thank You Evelien! Wishing you ONLY the best!

Here are our CY Designers’ creations!
Layout by CY Guest Designer Carla Robinson, softly striped and done in one of my favourite colour combos!
CY Guest Designer Susan Coish incorporated some brights, some action and some whimsy into her design!
CY Guest Designer Deanne Burton created a layout that is heartwarming: it features fluffy Meika!!
CY Designer Helga Payawal-Vergara created a LO that celebrates one of the joys of being a parent!
CY Designer Jenifer Cowles created a LO that demonstrates the versatility of Noella’s 12×12″ sketches! She translated the sketch into an 8 1/2×11″ LO and included some understated, classy detailing.
Here’s a soft & pretty layout from CY Designer Merrilee Wheaton, interpreting Sketch #53!
Here’s a LO from me. These were the key members of my son Noah’s Team in 2005-2007. These are very special people. Noah needs to have a photo of them, all together, of course!!!
I also flipped the sketch 1/4 turn to the left and only used one full circle in this interpretation.
Thank You all for visiting the Creatively Yours blog site today and please be sure you share YOUR Sketch #53 creations with us! We’d LOVE to see them all!
Remember that Noella and I are always looking for talented scrapbookers to accept the role of CY Guest Designers!
It could be YOU!
We visit EVERY link to a project created with a CY sketch that we receive in the Comments section, below.
Be sure to include the EXACT link to your LO/card/project, not just to the main page of your blog.
This saves us all time and gets us right to your work!
Thanks and Happy Easter, everyone!!

I am so excited to share with you some wonderful news from Noella. As you know she has been “sewing up a storm” in her recent “No-No’s Sew Hip Creations “ venture. Our very own multi-talented “Creatively Yours” sketch artist, card-maker and scrapbooker has now been featured on the Sew Mama Sew Blog site– with her recent fabric flower tutorial (taught at a scrappy Technique Crop over at SBCH!!)
CONGRATS NOELLA, ON THIS VERY VALUABLE RECOGNITION!
