Go-to Sketches - Merry Christmas

Last Friday I went to Paper & Pictures to meet up with Birgit Koopsen. I've been a huge fan of her work for a long time, and when she told me some time ago that she would spend a weekend with her scrapping friends Alice, Anette and Mirjam in Doorn in September we agreed to meet up with each other. It was great talking to Birgit and the other girls. I didn't have any intentions to buy something, but I couldn't leave the store without two cards magazines and a Christmas paper collection. One of the magazines that I bought is the Go-to Sketches magazine that's been on my wish list for a while. I love all the Paper Crafts magazines and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one as I love sketches too. Today's card is based on one of Teri Anderson's sketches (page 9). I digged into my stash of Christmas papers and used October Afternoon's collection from last year. The felt flowers come from my own store and can be found here and here.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Rustic White) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon | Felt flowers: My Store (red and ecru) | Twine: May Arts | Buttons: Buttons Galore & More | Flourish: Zva Creative (CR03CA111) | Rub-ons: Pebbles Inc | Tools: Martha Stewart edge punch, Beautiful Blooms II #2 Die Collection, sewing machine | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo)

Have a Happy Wednesday!

  8. Hi Ingrid,

    Magazines are a nice inspiration. You did a great take on the sketch! I enjoyed meeting you. And ofcourse we enjoyed our weekend and shopping at P and P. To see (and feel ;) ) so many papers and embellishments was really great.
