February 15 2018 Reveal

Hello there!
Welcome to our mid-month challenge friends! As always, we have two fabulous sponsors supporting this challenge, which I will tell you about in just a bit; but first I want to let you in on a little surprise!  We actually have two sketches to play with for this challenge!  You can choose to join in on one or the other - or even both to double our chances at our prizes!  If you are playing along with both sketches, be sure to link them both up under the February 15th link tool.  Now let me tell you about our sponsors.

A big thank you goes out to Cuts2Luv, for supporting us once again and sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a $25.00 gift certificate to their online store to one lucky participant!

Cuts2luv is the first french flairs brand in Canada, born in 2013. We now make flairs and chipboards titles for your creative projects. We offer thousands of original models and even metallics. We have both english and french for making everyone happy! Our mission is to offer to our beloved customers high quality, fast service and always trendy products! Come to visit us on our blog www.cuts2luv.blogspot.ca

AND thank you to Lawn Fawn, who are also returning to sponsoring this challenge, offering a $25.00 gift certificate to their online store to a second lucky participant!

We’re a small company from Southern California that specializes in crafting products that are fun and lively. Since beginning in March 2010 with four stamp sets, we have grown our collection to more than 130 sets! We have also introduced lots of new products along the way... paper, twine, and dies, just to name a few.  Our products feature original designs that range from versatile basics (we love alphabets and polka dots) to fun and quirky (yay for yetis!) and everything in between. And of course, we use the highest quality photo-polymer for our stamps, FSC certified paper, and 100% steel for our dies.
Visit us anytime to browse our latest products or simply find inspiration! And don't forget to check out our Flickr and Facebook pages, follow us on Twitter and read our blog. We love to feature our customers and give away free stuff! We hope our products make you smile!

Now let's get started with the challenges, here is your first sketch....


As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Judy to our challenge!!


I will let Judy tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi from sunny north Queensland. I am so honoured to be asked to be guest on the design team this month. Working with paint, inks and paper is so much fun and I really enjoy using mixed media on my layouts. I enjoy the creative outlet that scrapbooking provides but also like recording the little things that make up the fabric of my life. Hopefully my children and grandchildren will also appreciate my record keeping in years to come."

Here is  Judy's layout based on our sketch, we adore the layers and texture that she has created!.


Thank you for joining us Judy!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....















And here is your second sketch!


And here is another round of incredible DT creations, you will notice that some of our DT played with both sketches!







Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by February 28th at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes! All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.

Thank you for visiting!  Have fun, we cannot wait to see what you create!

Hi I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers. My laser cutting business is currently based in Canberra and has been something I have been working on for a little while now. It came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts. I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed! He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser. I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired. I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different mediums I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless. Good luck and I look forward to seeing everyone's entries!
