Happy 600, Freshly Made Sketches!

The talented designers at Freshly Made Sketches are celebrating their 600th sketch this week! Isn’t that amazing? 600 unique card layouts with tons of inspirational photos and gorgeous samples from the designers and players alike…provided every single week. What a place to visit when you need a creative boost!

This week’s sketch is such a versatile one…

There’s a fall chill in the air here in NY, so I chose to get a little spooky…

I used vintage papers from October Afternoons’s “Witch Hazel” collection along with Papertrey Ink’s adorable “Happy Owl-o-ween” stamps and dies. So adorable and sure to bring a smile, not a spook! The “Happy Halloween “ sentiment is from PTI’s Haunted House” set. Lots of glittery paper and spray added all around, too!

Congratulations to the lovely designers at Freshly Made Sketches! Thank you for providing card makers with such wonderful inspiration and kind words every week. Cheers to 600 more ❤️!
