Special Assignment Sketch #2: Library Pocket!

This week I asked our Designers to create a "Library Pocket" embellie with the easy to use pattern shown here at

Here is what two of our DT members and our October 2009 Guest Designer came up with!!

"Sketches: Creatively Yours" October Guest Designer Michelle Hodges is working on her Fall pictures!

Have a look how Michelle created the library pocket out of patterned paper, filled it with flowers, and then added it to her 12x12" Harvest Festival layout!

WOW, Michelle, that's SOME pile 'o pumpkins! LOL I bet your daughter was thrilled!

Love your Autumn colour scheme, too! Gorgeous!

"Sketches: Creatively Yours" dedicated Design Team Member Ann Seleshanko created this library pocket using the pattern from

Hers is a "Merry Christmas" pocket and has a removable "card!"

Ann, I love the sheer ribbon you added. The snowflake, plus the little red bird and round wire cage make this really special.

Here is Ann's card and pocket set, seen together.

Ann, this is a gorgeous set. It's awesome to see it used as a "card!

Very creative!
(I have 1 word: SUBMIT!)

Design Team Member Robin Gibson created a pocket for mementos from a trip to Vegas and safeguarded her memories in a pretty, accessible and yet functional way!

Hey, look at all those lucky 7's!! LOL Great job!

Thanks Ann, Robin and Michelle! You have all rocked this assignment. Wonderful to see it done in three ways! Interpretations are always amazingly diverse. WTG girls!

And, this post ends the tenure of our current Design Team.

Ann, Misty, Rita, Andi and Robin, each of you has brought us something very special, a little bit of yourselves, your thoughts and your talents with every project and sketch interpretation.

THANK YOU. You let us in, allowing us to share the creative process and and we appreciate it.
