June 2010 S:CY Card Sketch

 Sketch created for S:CY by Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko

Quotation Card

Card created by S:CY's newest Designer, Janice Coble!  

 The elegance of this card speaks for itself. I adore those peach satin flowers and the pearls! Thank you, Janice for sharing this beauty with us! We are so happy you're here.

Father's Day Card

Card created by S:CY Designer Terri-Ann Morris

A classic and softly embellished card~ So lovely! Terri-Ann told me that she used  Tim Holtz distress inks to stamp and colour the background. She is giving this card to her Dad for Father's Day on June 20th.

"Congrats Grad" ~ Card #1

"Diploma" ~ Graduation card  #2

"Congrats Grad" ~ Card #3

 Graduation cards created by S:CY Designer Sherry Owens

 I  just love the red and  blue Sherry used!! Awesome, fun cards!
 Sherry writes: "Tis the Season... for graduations... and this sketch was very handy to help in the creation of 3 different-yet-similar cards for grads."

"Celebrate Today" Card

Card created  by S:CY  Designer Jennifer Cassista.

Jenn writes; " I used new Tim Holtz paper (isn't it yummy?) and his stamps and lots of Prima."
Hmmm, "Yummy" describes this card beautifully!!!! And  that flower is stunning! Great job Jenn!

All-occasion Card


Card created by S:CY Designer Jillian Anger

The softness  of his card  telegraphs such comfort and gentleness. Jillian writes that she used up some scraps on her card and that the stamp was from an "old Stamp in' Up set."  

"Thank You" Card


Card created by S:CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko

 Ann used her Copic markers to full advantage here to make this darling little girl come to life. Ann is a certified Copic Instructor. You can check ourt more of her work at Savvy n Sassy. She is one of two Copic Designers over at SnS. Check out the Copic Club there~! The price of the markers is AMAZING as is the educational component.  It has me really excited. It's a way to build your Copic marker collection at a reasonable PACE and PRICE!

"Best of Luck" Card

Simple card created by S:CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald

 I needed something simple and FAST made up for a supervisor who was leaving my husband's workplace today! It's that time of year in the military: we call it "Posting Season!"

Since I didn't know this gal's colour or style preferences, I  kept embellishment to a minimum, using some  Graphic 45 patterned paper & a small scrap of 1/4" wide satin ribbon.  The stamp I used for the sentiment was from Anita's Sugarloaf Designs (2002). I find the Graphic 45 paper amazing to use in creating fast cards needing little embellishment except that brought to view by the  beauty of the papers.  

Don't forget about our RAK!

Be sure to leave us a note and let us know what you're up to scrappin'-wise... and what you thought of today's creations! Your name will be entered into the RAK!

Thank You to my fantastic S:CY Design Team for a job well done-- AGAIN!!

Have a wonderful weekend and week  ahead.


  1. Love the cards! One thing about my scrapping is that I don't scrap in order!! I tend to use up my more recent pictures than the older ones. I think it has to do with the quality of my camera.

  2. love all the interpretations of the sketch, and i think i might just bring it with me to a crop tomorrow! as far as what i'm up to scrappy-wise lately, i'm trying to squeeze in as much as possible! The Boys finish school next friday, so i'll have a lot less time to myself for gettin' my craft on!

  3. There are so many great cards here, I love seeing all of the different ideas. Cards are so much fun to do and it's nice to have new ideas. As for scrapping, my table is once-again buried. I have to dig out, I have a gift to make and some other ideas rolling around in my head, that I just can't get out with this shambles over here... :)

  4. Love the flowers on that first card!!

    I recently attended a scrappy weekend and did LOTS of layouts. For the next couple of weeks, though, I won't get much done -- too much other things to do around the house.

  5. Love how these cards all turned out so different yet inspired by the same sketch. Amazing job everyone!

    We're taking a beach vacation this year, so I think my next project will be a canvas beach mini album.

  6. Great cards team.... lots of inspiration here for everyone. Busy playing catch-up at the moment with my layouts.

  7. Loved the cards - they are all so cute! I have been out of town and trying to scrap while traveling is a bit crazy! But I am determined to do it and this sketch by Ann really inspired me to get busy! Thanks!! Stacy

  8. Great cards ladies! Gorgeous as always.

  9. Great cards... I love the sketch and am going to give it a whirl! I have been making paper bag books and have just finished two vintage ones filled with old photos... well, not too old but sepia colored to look old. I have been making small books with my 6 year old grandaughter to give as gifts too.

  10. Beautiful job, DT! Love that Sketch, too Ann- TY!

  11. been a long time I didn't do any cards, I'll try this sketch one of these days. I'm a messy scrapper, all the tables I can put my stuff are flooded with papers, inks and stamps. Everytime I want to get organize and clean up, I will feel the itch to scrap so you can imagine I never have a clean table for long :p
    Now I'm looking for inspiration to make something special for my dear frien who also love scrapping
