Kazan's Sketch 51 & a Farewell





Heehaaa! Laura and I have had so much fun in the gallery these past two weeks pouring over your entries for our Design Team. We are only picking 3 girls to join our team but in 3 months another 3 will come on board so if you did not get your email today please stay in touch because we will contact the next 3 designers from this very same list!

This week we have so much to share - first of all the sketch and our sponsors product. We are die-hard Bo Bunny fans here in 2S4Y land so imagine our surprise that we have amongst our midst a Bo Bunny Designer! Shanna Vineyard designs the gorgeous stickers for many of our favorite Bo Bunny collections! There are many cardmakers out there that love dimension on their cards but don't like the bulk it creates for mailing - well here is the solution to the problem: These uber cute stickers LOOK dimensional but are flatter than flat. You have all the effects of ribbon, buttons, twine, brads, foam dots and bling with none of the bulk! I knew you would be impressed! Shanna generously supplied our Design Team with some of her creations and we all got to play!

Alice



Heather



Kay




Sadly this week we also have to bid farewell to the following three designers as their term has come to an end here at 2 Sketches 4 You


Kathy
Card Blanc




Kathy is not only one dedicated crafter with an awesome resume tucked under her belt but she is also a true friend to all of us here. She is such a consistent commenter in the gallery and her positive attitude has won the hearts of many of our friends here at 2S4Y! We are going to miss you so much Ms. Kathy but we will follow you on your blog and continue to marvel at all your successes (especially Digital Doodles)
{Hugs} L&K





Sarah
Designs by Sarah Martina




This is one designer that is on fire right now! She is young, beautiful and very talented. What a pleasure it has been to work along side someone that not only manages to create beautiful cards week after week but is also as sweet as can be. You will find Sarah's work all over the web and in print publications - 2S4Y {Hearts} you Ms. Sarah Martina!
{Hugs} L&K






Shanna Vineyard
My Next Thirty Years



Often times in this industry you meet a person that you know will be a friend 4eva - Shanna is that person. We loved getting to know you better as part of our team. Your wonderful talent coupled with a vivacious personality makes you an asset on any creative project. 2 Sketches 4 You has had a blast with you Ms Shanna and will miss you dearly.
{Hugs} L&K

You gals are going to make me cry with such sweet parting words! I have truly enjoyed my first design team experience here at 2S4Y! I can't beleive how much has changed in these few short months since I started. I've really grown during this time and have exciting things happening. And I have my supportive team here at 2S4Y to thank for much of that! Thanks Kazan, Laura and my team mates past and present! By the way gals, I think you should occasionally have one of the sorority sisters come back to guest design on occasion! :) Kathy

Lerin Mosser said...

Great sketch!! I just linked my card up and hopefully it worked since this is my first time using Mr. Linky! ;) I had to send both of you an invite via email to view my card on my blog since it is a private blog. Please let me know if you have any problems viewing it. Thanks for the chance to win! ;)

Moosisk said...

So sad to see the DT ladies go, but I know that more great talent will follow. I really liked this sketch. I needed a birthday card for my nephew who is turning 7 and this sketch really worked great with the theme I wanted. Boys and men are always the hardest to make cards for - at least, for me. Thanks for making it easier! :D
