Sketch 64: Layouts & New Designers!

Welcome back to another week at TTS! I hope you had fun playing with our previous sketches last week while we took some time off! Though we were off, we were busy lining up two new designers for TTS! I am SO excited to be able to introduce them to you this week. They are Jen and Rebekah! Rebekah loves to work with fabric, and she makes beautiful blankets and all sorts of goodies. And her papercrafting skills are gorgeous! You can see Rebekah's blog here. Jen is another fabulous papercrafter and has a photography business and wonderful etsy site. You can find Jen's blog here! You should start to see their work appearing in mid-August. Until then, be sure to keep up with their wonderful blogs. Welcome girls! We are SO excited to have you both on board!

Now onto our sketch for today, Sketch 64! This week's sketch leaves lots of room for tiny pictures, scrap paper, embellies, whatever you come up with to fill the space!
Look at what the design team did with the sketch! Wow! They used photos in space of the small squares, circles, strips of patterned paper, etc. And many of them turned the sketch too. So very unique, fun, stunning, and creative!

Wow. Chelsea, love your flower! All the layouts look so nice! I just realized that mine has a strange shadow...I saw it on some layouts I scanned the other day too and am sorry to say my scanner is failing me. Ugh. Wish there was budget for a 12x12 scanner....but alas...not.
