New Card Sketch at Let's Scrap!


With the temperatures STILL soaring near 100* each day, I am dreaming of cool Autumn weather. So this week I used some of the brand new Cookbookin' Fall papers to construct my card based on Kimmy's sketch over at Let's Scrap. Here is her sketch:

There are so many BEAUTIFUL versions of this sketch posted by other Let's Scrap designers, be sure to head over there and check it out!

For my card I started with some textured cardstock from The Paper Studio. Then I punched squares from the Cookbookin' paper and sewed them to the card. Speaking of sewing, yesterday I was at a fabric store looking at patterns and materials for actually sewing clothing! It felt so odd to be thinking about sewing something besides a layout or card.
I am very ambitious this year...I am planning to sew costumes for the children. Yikes! They have decided to stick with a theme for Halloween and this year they are all going to be characters from Toy Story. My oldest wants to be the Chicken Man. I don't know...sewing a chicken costume??? Anyone ever done that? I did get some cow print material to sew chaps for my Jessie and a vest for my Woody but that is as far as I have gotten.
Anyway, back to my card. Once I had sewn on the squares, I rubbed on the sentiment from Imaginesce and then I attached one of my tissue paper flowers. I ran a tutorial on these a while back and the layout featured in the tutorial is actually of my kids from last Halloween:
I really don't think we will be able to top the cute factor from last year but they are sure excited about it anyway! If you'd like to view the tutorial just click here.


Happy Scrapping!
