Allison manages a team of writers, trainers and curriculum developers by day and wild jackals by night (AKA as her children, Tristan, Charlotte and Avery). When she does get to venture into her craft room she enjoys cardmaking, scrapbooking and designing periodic sketch challenges for the Playing in Paradise Challenge.
If you're looking for sketch ideas, the first place to stop each week is Allison's blog Stampin' When I Can, where she has a post that compiles links to the various sketch challenges around the blogosphere (that also shows a thumbnail of the sketches if you're looking for something specific).
Here's your holiday card sketch:
and here are our sketch card designs:
Allison says, "My card features rich color tones and fun button embellishments ... with a touch of glitter for some holiday sparkle."
Stephanie says, "I decided I wanted to use some Basic Grey holiday papers this week, so the snowman background paper is where my design began ... I thought this fun Savvy Stamps Snowman fit right in with that motley snowman crew ... I paper-pieced his scarf leaving the ends loose, so it looks like the scarf is blowing in the wind."
Lauren says, "i've held on to this beautiful over-sized piece of german scrap for several years, waiting for just the right idea to come along, and when i saw allison's gorgeous sketch it was the very first thing i thought of! since it is so nice and big, i really didn't need much else to flesh out my 6x6" card... just some basic grey "jovial" papers, a little bit of vintage foreign text paper, and some musical themed tape to fill in all the shapes of the sketch, and i was all set!"
