My favourite parts! This is where the faux bleaching comes to hand: flick or spritz water over some of the cards and then blot with paper towel. The Distress Inks react with the water and you are left with a lighter colouring where the water was.
Thanks Alicia for the design and thanks Kaszazz. The copyright for this design is owned by Kaszazz, but feel free to try this technique, and let me know if you have any queries, or you would like to purchase any of the products used for this project. firstname.lastname@example.org
My first attempt at a set was using the Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection, which was an awesome prize pack I won. I made 3 cards:
Then I made this simple design, using my Kaszazz Ezy Press die cut and embossing maching to emboss a "Miss You", die background, some Kaszazz striped ribbon and a few simple Basic Grey embellies. I actually prefer this one over the other 3 cards I made first!
Transparency was also used as you can see here with a piece of Ebony and Ivory paper, with a Father verse tucked behind it. A vintage clock stamp was also stamped onto the transparency using Staz on.

Here's my layout, which I stayed close to the sketch for. just starting to really get into sketches, sometimes I do my own thing, and sometimes I like to get as close as possible to the sketch. I used the Bella EVER AFTER range of papers, Distress inks, Kaiser rub ons, acrylic paints and Smooch spritz. Elles Studio journal spot, journal ticket, Alphas used were thickers, Sam and Lucy word stickers, Carolees and Fynmark . Of course I used products from Kaszazz- tag stamp, lge and sml polka dot brads, which I'm glad to have found another use for! I made a little file folder and stuck that behind my photo and filled it with hidden journalling!
This challenge will run till 30 December and we'll choose the winner via random.org. Our design team will vote for Top 3. We'll invite the Top 3 to join us as guest designers for the next sketch challenge.

Here’s my first Christmas card for the season, & I’m happy to say there are no traces of green or red! I used my Ezy Press machine to emboss a dots background and die cut a label, then some fab Design adhesives and foils for the pink snowflakes. I punched out some larger snowflakes in white and smothered them in ice stickles. Of course a little Kaszazz ribbon made it’s way on there too!

We went from Darwin to Alice springs, Ayers rock, Kings Canyon etc, then back to Alice Springs where we left Dave and flew to Adelaide. (He drove on to Birdsville for the races and met us there later.)
After a few weeks in Adelaide, we then took off where we left off and travelled to the flinders Ranges, and The Eyre Peninsula. This is a letter I have just written to my family and will tell you of our recent adventures up until now! Enjoy...
Photos are from the Point Lowly lighthouse and my family on the jetty at Cowell, SA.
