Sketch #24

This week, I have fun news. My team of talented scrappers who design for me, has gotten an addition - and I'd like to present to you:

Isn't she amazingly talented?!
Leave her some ♥ on her blog, why don't you?

Ps. All my sketches are adaptable, and I encourage that. As you can see below, Johanna took my 12x12-sketch and made a lettersize LO. Brilliant!

You know about that saying, that even the sun has its spots?
I'm not claining radiance and necessity like the sun, but I'm definitely having some spots.

You see - I accidentally scanned the same paper twice, giving the same sketches two different names. Way to go me, ey...? *blushes*

Now - I sent Amanda and Wendy a sketch each. Number 27 and 29.
Only... it was the same one.
Yep. I TOLD you I'm a clutz...!
So now, I've finally updated that post with Wendy's awesome LO too.

So sorry to keep you waiting, Wendy, dear!!

Ps. By the way, guys - since you're reading my blog, I am guessing you like sketches. How about doubles? And how about contests...? Check out the Papermaze blog (where Wendy designs - which is why I made the connection) for a contest you just miiiight enjoy... ;)

Sketch #23 - and the interpretations

First of all - I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who participated and who sent me kind notes regarding both this and my other (less fun) post, the other day.
You guys are the reason why I do this.

Second of all. I couldn't choose. No way! You're all so amazingly talented and each and every interpretation had it's own charm and personal touches that made the unique, special and oh so beautiful!

...so I decided to showcase them ALL!

You guys ROCK!
Thanks so much for playing along!

Ps. I'm sorry your names don't show up, but I didn't want to ruin your pictures with watermarks. If you click on a photo, you'll get to it's page, and the name of it's maker will be visible for you. Thanks!

Important message!

Unfortunately, it has been brought to my attention that people are still using my sketches for what they are not intended for.

Let me remind you:
My sketches are NOT to be used for DT-work, challenges, contests, applications or anything but your own pleasure and/or for this blog.
That is all, unless I have specifically given permission.
I also ask that you please give me credit when possible. It's really not that hard.

This includes, but is not limited to, the sketches on this blog. I still own the copyright to all of my sketches, even the ones that are older and/or have been used elsewhere.

Please, don't make me have to stop doing this.
I love sharing my sketches and I looooove seeing all the wonderful things that you make from them - but I don't appreciate seeing LOs that are distinctively and apparantly made from my sketches in places where they don't belong.

Thanks for reading.

Sketch #23 and a challenge

So, I've caught the flu and I'm too tired to organize this post.
Therefore, I am instead gonna let YOU do the job.

Here's what you do:
Use the following sketch.
Make a card, something altered or an LO with it.
When you save your picture, make sure you name it 50. yourname_LO/cardname.
For example, I'd name one 50. Zarah_Light of my Life.

MAIL your entry to me at inspirascrap[@]gmail.com before Sunday 11:59am PST (remove the brackets) and hold off posting it until I have gotten back to you.

Not only will I showcase some of the entries - I will also pick one (or more) people to be my guest designers.

Sound fun? Goodie!
Start creating!

Sketch #22

This week, the sketch is a bit more freestyle - or clean if you will. There's a lot of room for personal interpretation (which I absolutely love and encourage!) as you can also see from the lovely LOs - made by my dear, wickedly talented friends Annika (the first one) and Sofie (the second one - and by the way, Fiffi, I'm still not sure it's legal, being as beautiful as you are!!... *smiles*).

Hope you love the LOs as much as I do - and don't hesitate to leave the artists behind them some love!

Thanks for popping by!

A special sketch (#21)

A little while ago, I got this very sweet email from a super kind lady over at the Aussie shop & forum Country Papercraft. She asked me if they could use one of my sketches for their newsletter - and of course they could!
I actually thought they deserved a bit better than that - so I made a sketch for them, exclusively.

The newsletter (hey - start subbing - it's filled to the BRIM with awesome inspiration!! And check out that forum too, while you're at it!) is out now and I asked if I could show you all their amazing takes on the sketch on the blog, and they agreed!

So - this week's very special guest artists are the awesome Country Papercraft's Crew:
Michelle, Deb, Leonie and Lynlee!

Thanks for scrapping my sketch! I am honoured!
