let's get sweet and sketchy...

Sketchy what?
Oh my goodness!!!  
I have a ton to share with you today and I'm so excited about it.
First, I have to show off the A.MaZ.InG kit for this month.

So sweet, right?  
I am having so much fun with this kit!
So much so, I have TWO cards to share with you today.

I love sketches and they are an amazing way to jump start your creative process.
I'd like to introduce you to a new challenge blog called CAS(E) this Sketch!  And all my PMB friends get an exclusive sneak peek at the sketch that will officially be up tomorrow.

I have had many comments on my blog from those with a little 'sketch fright'!  I'm a linear thinker, so a sketch to me is a fabulous blueprint for my creative mojo.  I was shocked to hear some have trouble using them.  I guess my brain likes to be told what to do.  Ha.  I like the direction a fabulous sketch gives me.  So, I thought maybe a video with my process for using sketches might help you out (if you have sketch fright that is).  Of course, the super SWEET LIFE kit from Paper Made Bakery is perfect to show you how from one sketch you can make two different cards.

And here are the two cards from the video based on the sketch.

Don't you just want to squeeze that little bee???  LOVE him!  The honeycomb was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo from the Avalon papers included in the kit.  And of course, since I created the file, I just have to share it with my PMB friends!!!  Hope you enjoy.

And here is number two.  Don't you love how you can get two completely different cards by using the same sketch?  Plus the Sweet life kit makes it super simple to find the most adorable items to put on your cards. 
Hope you enjoyed my Sketch 101 tips!  
I'll see you next week.

Pin It!
