The Sampler: November 2012 Card Challenge

I made a sketch for the November challenges over at The Sampler Kit Club this month. (I’ve also created a matching digital freebie. If you want it, scroll down!) I hope this sketch inspires you. If it does, don’t forget to link your creation on their blog! You’ll be entered to win a sampling of products from The Sampler.


I used the sketch as inspiration for the card below. I loved the bright colors in the November Home Sweet Home kit. I’m calling this one an anniversary card, but I think it would work well as an everyday card too.


I also made a digital template from the sketch to give away to my hybrid card making friends. This is my example card. I used a paper pack and embellishments by Samantha Walker. *Please don’t try to print the example card. It’s extremely low resolution and it won’t work! You can download the template here.


Holly created an amazing sketch for The Sampler’s layout challenge. I’m sharing what she made here, but please link any pages that you make with it on The Sampler’s blog.


This is my take on Holly’s sketch. Alexis has entered a stage where getting her to smile for photos is totally hit or miss. I wanted to document her lack of enthusiasm for my photography with a layout. Ha!

Journaling: Alexis, Act like you love your siblings. Please smile!

Again, I used the November 2012 kit called Home Sweet Home from The Sampler kit club to create this page.


Thank You copy

Awesome layout. It's SO frustrating when they won't just smile! Trevor is starting that now. Unfortunately, most people say that the phase lasts a decade or so. Ugh!
