It’s time for a new sketch in the CREATIVE JUICE series. Can i just say how much I am loving this series? I hope you are too. CREATIVE JUICE is a fun way for me to share sketch ideas with you but you don’t get just one, but four, sketches. The sketches are the same but laid out differently to help you see the sketch at a different angle. Let me share Week #10 so you can get busy creating.
- Get creative with your color combinations.
- The circle could be any shape you wish. You might even think about adding a Delicate White Doily.
You can print out the sketches each week OR you can save them to your computer. By doing this you will have sketch ideas at your fingertips, whenever you need them. Just click the pic to download or print it. Remember, you can always find them here if you go to the ‘Categories’ (located on the right side bar) and click on Creative Juice.
Here is what I came up with for today’s CREATIVE JUICE sketch…
I had a new team member join my fabulous team of Stampin’ Up demonstrators and I wanted to make him a special card to say welcome. I didn’t take a photo of the card before I mailed it off and obviously I didn’t say to him “Love Never Gives Up” so this is a new card I made with the same stamp set.
I used the new Waterfront stamp set. If you don’t have this set, you are missing out on creativity at it’s best. WOW was it amazing and cool to create with!
There are so many things about this card that make me happy. The beach, the sand, the palm trees… and the sunshine!
Here are the measurements for my LOVE NEVER GIVES UP card but remember, these measurements are not set in stone. Get creative with your measurements!
- Crumb Cake – 11″ x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”
- Basic Black – 3 ⅛” x 3 ⅛”
- Whisper White – 3″ x 3″
- Garden Green – 1 ¾” x 5 ½”
- Cajun Craze – 2″ x 5 ½”
Here are the Stampin’ Up supplies I used to create the card. Just one stamp set and 6 ink pads. Such a great set to add to your collection. Click a pic to order!
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you couldn’t figure out what day of the week it was ALL WEEK? That has been me and it’s driving me crazy! All week I have been off by a day and yesterday I thought it was Wednesday. Boy this messes with your head. At rehearsal last night a couple of people asked if I was okay. Isn’t it awful when people notice that you’re not yourself? What you see on my videos is really who I am. 99% of the time, I am a very happy person but there are just those moments when you feel like things are…. well, just off a little.
Now, I’m not saying any of this to whine, not at all. Just that this week was a week where I just couldn’t seem to get my head in the game. Now you know why this blog post is up about 30 minutes later than normal. Because I thought it was Thursday! Ugh. All I can say is THANK HEAVENS IT’S FRIDAY! I hope this weekend will reset my body’s clock. Oh wait, isn’t Sunday daylight savings time? Well, I guess we will wait and see what next week feels like. Maybe my head will think it’s June? lol
I am really looking forward to this weekend. On Saturday, we are celebrating my niece’s birthday at The Melting Pot (a fabulous and elegant fondue place that I LOVE) and on Sunday we are having a few friends over for the evening. Actually, it’s Ginny’s choir teacher and the accompanist. I love these two ladies so much, and their spouses are just fun to be with. Along with their kids, my kids, it will be a houseful but it will be FUN.
I hope that you have some fun plans this weekend as well! Enjoy it!
