"Valentine Wishes" Card

Created for her son Noah's teacher by S:CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald

This Card's "Green" Elements:

1. Bubble wrap was repurposed to create the white "bubble-effect" when dipped in acrylic paint and "stamped" onto card front.

2. My "Scruffy Posie" (c) was created using old unwearable jeans. The denim fabric was cut into circles, frayed and layered. More information on these "Scruffy Posies" can be found here at Create it GREEN.

3. Leaves on posie were from some Dollar Store flowers I had used on a wreath and whose petals had faded.When I removed the faux flowers from the wreath to replace them, the leaves were still a nice green--- recyclable!
4. Cotton lace and patterned paper scraps used.

"Happy Birthday" card

Created for her sister Mary by S:CY Designer Sherry Owens

The above card incorporates "green" elements: use of scrap patterned paper and an inked egg-carton flower.
Directions for creating this type of flower can be found here (you'll need to scroll down): Scrap n' Share Blog.


I want to thank every one of our card Designers today! You all did a great job interpreting our March 26th Sketch.

Today I must also thank our entire dedicated Sketches: Creatively Yours Design Team for a job well done. I can hardly believe that it has been so many months since we started working together!

What a Team!

You are a dedicated, conscientious, and TALENTED bunch of Designers.

Kudos to each of you: Carla, Irit, Helen, Michelle, Janis, Vivi, Heather, Sherry, Misty, Jenn, Pam and Victoria. THANK YOU all.

I must "sing out" to my right-hand gal, S:CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko. TY for everything you do, from the monthly Card Sketches, to your beautiful interpretations, to allowing me to "bounce ideas off you," Ann!

It is invaluable to have your support and talent here as part of S:CY.

I would like to say a sincere and hearty THANK YOU to my friend, and our S:CY March Guest Designer, Vicki Chrisman! Thanks Vicki, for making March MUCH more fun-- it's so nice to have you with us. Spring WILL be here-- (*and there*) soon, right?

Hope you can come by S:CY again- you bring us lots of inspiration!!


We have a new April-September 2010 Design Team starting with us soon here at S:CY, and I hope you will pop over on March 29th when I have the pleasure of introducing each one of them to you! There will be some new and some familiar faces, and you know the talent will be amazing. There will be bios, the DT members' fave layouts, and links to their blogs.... so you can learn more about each S:CY Design Team member.
See you then!

Thanks again to the talented outgoing S:CY Design Team:
