Winners For Sketch 301!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Jen has chosen the Queen!


The Queen of Clean: Mary from Stamps-n-Lingers





A big thank you to everyone who created a card this week!  Our gallery was full of amazing cards and it was so hard to pick just one as a winner!  When I saw Mary's card I fell in love with it.  I have a soft spot for fall cards.  I love all the different elements Mary has used on her card and I love the embossed background.  The colours are just so perfect for fall as well!  As much as I hate for summer to be over, this card makes me excited for fall!  Congratulations Mary!  You are this week's Queen of Clean!


Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Cécile!

Winners For Sketch 300!

The Clean Team has chosen the Queen and the Princesses for you this week!


The Queen of Clean: Deanne from Three Trees {paper} Creations



What a fabulous gallery this week!  Thanks to all of you who helped us celebrate 300 sketches!  Our Freshly Made Sketches DT includes designers from five different countries including all four sides of the US which means heaven only knows how many time zones!  But thanks to Facebook we managed to get together and choose our Queen on this special week.  Deanne's bright summery card is a tropical delight with its pops of pink, sunny yellow and island blues! Facebook is fun but it would have been great to be somewhere on a beach together sipping one of these coconut concoctions while we browsed the gallery! Mahalo Deanne for this beautiful card and congratulations - you are the Queen of Clean!

And a special congratulations to PJ of PJ's Projects.  You are the winner of all the design team's cards from Sketch #300 via Random.org.  Check your email soon for a message from the design team!
Thank you to all who played this week and for your support through the years!  We look forward to many more sketches with you!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Jen Brum!

Freshly Made Sketches #300 - A Celebration!

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh! The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit you and to see what YOU create with our sketch!



Welcome to our celebration of Sketch #300 at Freshly Made Sketches!  Six years ago, Lesley Croghan created an idea to make cards that were clean but not necessarily simple.  Using sketches as a foundation, many stampers found their niche and this challenge has been a place of inspiration and encouragement.  This week, we are excited to share our 300th sketch.  Wow!!

The team will decide the Queen or King and then we will all choose our favorites to highlight, as usual.  BUT....we will also choose one random winner from the gallery to receive all of the cards created by the design team with this sketch!  We are so grateful for your support over these six years and want to send out a special thank you!

We hope you will join us in our celebration!  As always, we can't wait to see what you create!


We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.

Freshly Made Sketches #299 - A Sketch by Kim

We are so excited to visit you and to see what YOU create with our sketch!

Welcome to this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!!  It's Kim and it's my week to bring you a sketch.  I originally put this together with the idea of using bold patterns on the small strips (to give me a chance to dig into my unused paper stash!) but if you glance at my card, I ended up with soft colors and little scenes with dies.  I am always amazed at how different each card can be using the same sketch and I'm looking forward to seeing yours!
We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.

The Queen of Clean: Michele from I Card Everyone



So glad that Michele decided to "play cards" with us this week as she says!  Who doesn't love a mermaid sighting?  Her embossing and inking are spot on to create this delightful card....and I do enjoy a good pun!  I also enjoyed visiting your galleries this week. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us! Congratulations Michele, you are the Queen of Clean!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Kim!
