Kazan's Sketch 58 & DT Announcement

Kazan used Lenten Rose Blossom from Tiffany Doodles on her card

Welcome to August and the promise of gorgeous weather as we slowly ease into fall while others see the promise of spring.  We will spend the next week enjoying our last few days of Summer vacation before we get ready for school.  Although I am more than ready for my girls to get back we have had an enjoyable time together forming lasting memories of the Summer of 2010.  Documenting those memories on scrapbook pages and making cards to be treasured is what we do here in 2S4Y Land and I am pleased to introduce to you today, our new Design Team for Fall 2010.

Sponsor of the Week
Tiffany Doodles

This week we had the pleasure of working with digital images from Tiffany Doodles .  We asked Tiffany herself to tell us a little more about the company:

"Hi! I’m Tiffany Richards, owner of Tiffany Doodles. I’m having the time of my life doing what I was born to do! My background is in Wed Design and Photography. I have been self employed for eight years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my work! Since childhood, I’ve always been creative and taken great pleasure in drawing and painting. About a year ago, I discovered the stamping and paper crafting world and just fell in love!! In a very short order, I began transforming some of my drawings and doodles into “digis”. It has truly been a joy to share them with folks. I get so thrilled every time I see something new that someone has created with one of my stamps!! Each design is like a child of mine and it’s really neat to see it all grown up and out in the world being all it can be…LOL! "

All of the digital images are originally created by Tiffany.  Most are hand-drawn while others are brushed up in Photoshop using the pen tool to produce very clean lines.  We loved the images in PhotoSketches  which Tiffany transformed into sketches from her own photographs!
