Farewell to 2 Sketches 4 You

This is my second post for today! Scroll down to see my card for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz!

I'm a little sad to say that Laura and Kazan have decided to close down shop at 2 Sketches 4 You as they want to venture out and explore different opportunities in and out of the crafting world. I was on the very first 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team and had a wonderful time, and it has always been one of my favorite sketch blogs. Laura and Kazan are wonderful, and they did a fabulous job to make 2S4Y a huge success. I'm sure their sketches will be missed by many card makers. Fortunately the 2S4Y blog will remain up for everyone, so if you ever lack inspiration you can always visit the blog and pick a sketch.

Past and present designers have contributed to the last two sketches by Laura and Kazan. Here's my take on Kazan's sketch. Be sure to visit the 2 Sketches 4 You blog to see the work by all the talented 2 Sketches 4 You designers.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Modern Homemaker) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Signature Series: Butterfly), MFT Stamps | Ink: Papertrey Ink (New Leaf, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versafine (Vintage Sepia) | Flourish: Zva Creative | Twine: May Arts | Button: Papertrey Ink (New Leaf) | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Medium Scalloped Border Die, Love Lives Here Die Collection) | Other: music paper, wrinkled ribbon

Kazan and Laura, thank you for being a wonderful friend. I wish you the best of luck.

  7. Ingrid, your card is just stunning.......as always. I have to say, I was worried that this was coming since they hadn't posted in so long. I will definitely be the ones to miss their sketches and all of the beautiful creations you made for their sketches. I'm wishing good things for them, though.

    I went to see if a new sketch was up at 2S4Y and discovered this news today ... so, so sad, but happy for Laura and Kazan if it means new and wonderful opportunities for both of them!
