Deconstructed Sketch No. 107


Deconstructed Sketch No. 107

This summer is zooming by! I was looking at the calendar and I don’t even want to think about the fact that we are nearing the 1/2 way point before I head back to the classroom. We are all settled in our new house and the craft room is up and running! WooHoo! I’ll be posting pictures of my craft space in a later post once I have it all settled. It’s a bit of a work in progress now that I’ve been using it. I am SO happy that I am able to keep my sewing machine out on my desk now so that means you’ll be seeing lots more stitching from me… I need a bit of practice. 🙂 Now lets get on with the show…

Sketch Guidelines:

Are you ready for Deconstructed Sketch 107? I hope you like it! Here’s the scoop on what you need to do:

1. Use the sketch up top to make a project, any kind you like using any image you like. Use the sketch to inspire your own creativity. Feel free to substitute shapes for what you have available and mount tags and circles to a card base if you’d prefer.

2. Post it somewhere on the internet (your blog, SCS, Flickr, etc). Use keyword DS107 if you post to an online gallery like Splitcoaststampers.

3. Link back here to Inlinkz at the bottom of the post so I can stop by and see it.

4. Check back here next week to see if you are one of this week’s favorites and grab a badge for your blog.

Teachers Live Forever, DS107For my sample I used Verve’s Teacher’s Count stamp set with my favorite Doodlebug patterned paper – Take Note. I followed Amber’s sketch pretty closely, just altering the size of the bottom panel a bit and adding in the bow. I used a bit of ribbon from the Verve Summer Sailing Ribbon Collection and the little sentiment is die cut using the Flag It Die Set.
