Laura's Sketch 14




Old man winter is fast approaching with shorter days and low temperatures. A new season means a fresh new look for 2S4Y. You all can thank the brilliant talent of Kazan for our fabulous new header. This wonderful time of year brings sledding, skiing, hot cocoa and lots more time spent indoors for cardmaking!

Our Sparkling Design Team dazzled us with some of their own brilliant talent using this weeks sketch!

Pink Persimmon is a new online company specializing in clear polymer stamps and project kits. The company was started by two sisters, Judi & Darcy, who are so excited to be bringing these products to people who love playing with paper, ink, punches and stamps as much as they do! Many of their stamp designs are inspired by vintage images from the 40's, 50's and 60's.

All of the stamp designs are from Judi's hand-drawn images. Her background as an artist and stamper makes the sets unique in that she has really thought through the stamping process and created a collection of images that are versatile and work together extremely well. The stamp sets are made from a high quality photopolymer and manufactured in the US. Visit their website at Pink Persimmon for the online store and a beautiful idea gallery full of inspiration.


All of our designers used Pink Persimmons wonderful stamps they are truly a dream to work with! Thank you Judi & Darcy:) One of you will win this fun prize pack from Pink Persimmon!
