Kazan's Sketch 38

Kazan used Autum Days Printable Stamps on her Frame

Delicious aroma's, gorgeous colors and fantastic festive Holidays all await us during the next couple of months. What a wonderful time of year to spend making things for those we love and hold dear. We here at 2S4Y look foward to spending this crazy time with you as we all create, share and inspire each other!

Speaking of those we love: This week our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe and I think you can tell from all the projects that we loooove their printable stamps. There are so many options to choose from on a single sheet and the combinations are endless. This week our Design Team worked with two different sets of printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe:

First up is a set of cards from two of our Design Team members who will be with us for another 3 months:



Sankari used Halloween This & That on her card

This week we bid a fond farewell to our outgoing Design Team. During the past 6 Months these very talented Designers have wowed us with their amazing projects and innovative interpretations of the weekly sketches. Please join me as we say Thank you and so long to the outgoing members of the 2 Sketches 4 You Design team:

Anja Curvers

Anja, we have loved your style since the very beginning when you first started playing on 2 Sketches 4 You. It has been a pleasure working with you and your 'can do' attitude. You have constantly given us amazing cards and projects and we sincerely hope that you will continue to grace us with your talent. 2S4Y will miss you as a designer but thankful that we have you as a friend. Hugs & Kisses.

This week Anja has also provided us with a Bonus Sketch & Card...

Thank you for all your hard work and for giving us card after card of gorgeous inspiration. We are going to miss your work and that fun personality around here each week - sniff - but this is certainly not goodbye..just so long :) You have been an amazing team player (and friend) and you are an asset to any team you choose to belong to - best of luck on your crafting adventures. Hugs & Kisses.

Sponsor of the Week

This week we welcome back The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor for the week. Here is a little info about The Cutting Cafe for those of you joining us for the first time: The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and cutting files to crafters, scrapbookers, and cardmakers. The cutting files are templates that you print out (using your home printer) cut, assemble and then embellish! The format of the cutting files can be used on Die-Cut machines like Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software) and are very easy to use, versatile and fun too.

The printable stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out you can color them in or paper piece them like you would any other stamped image!

One of the best things about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you don't have to worry about finding space in your craft rooms to store them... Simply keep them in a folder on your computer to use over and over again!

*2 Sketches 4 You Readers Special Offer*
Buy One Get One Free
That's right - for a limited time when you purchase one set of printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe you get one set free! This offer ends Saturday Oct 31st so hurry while it lasts :)

So sad to be here for the last time that is as memeber of the very talented team but it won't be my last time I would love to come and make those lovely sketches week after week but it won't be on the monday........
These 6 months have gone so fast can't believe. Loved being part of all you guys and can't thank Laura and Kazan enough for having me. Also thank's for your sweet words of goodbye.

Gonna miss you all ( but not for long)

Sankari and Cheryl wish you much fun and hopefully you'll work with 4 very talented ladies once again but i'm sure that won't be a problem with all that talent out there.

And yes the cards this week are no exception from other weeks they are just beatiful.

Big hugs Anja
