Time for some inspiration and free files!

I am always making cards for birthday, anniversaries and to say thanks. With two little ones at home I can't be fussing around trying to figure what I want to do to make my cards. I love sketches so I use them all the time for inspiration that still lets me be creative. I am hosting a card sketch challenge on the Paperthreads forum. Just for making a card you win a great prize check it out today!

Above is the example I made from the sketch I used American Crafts ribbon, Creative Memories paper, dew drops, fluid chalk, mechanical label maker, and Prima flowers.

Well not only am I at a loss for cards but sometimes a I need a little something to get me motivated to scrapbook so I decided to host a scrapbook sketch challenge too! You can win an awesome file just for participating. Check it out on the Paperthreads forum today!

Above is an example of what I made using the scrapbook sketch. It is a hyrbrid version since doing the photo collage was so much easier in PSE then it would be by hand. I also used Scrappin Cops wonderful clipboard to show a prayer my nephew had created so we could bless our food. I used fluid chalk, copper Creative Memories pen for stitching and fibers also.
