World Card Making Day 2019 & announcing our Guest Designers!

Good morning!  The month is drawing to a close & as October draws near we wanted to remind you of our yearly tradition here at Sketch N Scrap of celebrating World Card Making Day all month long!  The party kicks off on Saturday October 5th at 9 am CST with our first EXCLUSIVE card sketch and then every Saturday thereafter in October we will be announcing another EXCLUSIVE card sketch to celebrate World Card Making Day!! 

This year we are excited to be bringing on FOUR Guest Designers to help inspire us all with their talented card making skills!!  Please join us in welcoming the following ladies as Guest Designers for the month of October!!
Hi everyone, my name is Barbara and I live in Sunrise Beach, MO, which is on the Lake of the Ozarks.  We moved to our lake front home just over 2 years ago from Kansas City and I have to say we love the slow pace of lake life.   I have my scrap room set up in a spare bedroom with a full view of the lake and I love being in here.   Which is good because it is a rare day that I'm not in here scrapping.  I do mostly layouts for all my family members but also like to do card making.   It's been years since I bought a store bought card.   I started scrapping about 12 years ago when my daughter gave me a tote full of scrapbooking supplies and I haven't stopped since.   I was addicted immediately with my first layout.    I also like to do Project Life and this is my 6th full year of doing that.  I'm married to Arthur and between us we have 4 kids and 8 grandkids.    So that gives me plenty of subject matter to work with.    Plus I also love making albums of any trips I have ever been on.  But I would have to say I love best all my Christmas albums I have made.   I am keeping them in chronological order and I started back in 1951, the year I was born and to date I have seven 3D ring
albums full.    As I said I'm addicted to this awesome hobby.

It started with coloring books and paper dolls. I developed my photo taking fondness in elementary school. All these years since I have been making albums. Playing with paper changed for me in 2006 when I discovered rubber stamps and card making. My current loves are pretty papers, especially flowers and birds, trying to get better at watercolor technique. Most of my time is spent between scrapbook pages and greeting cards, with the occasional disappearing into my sewing room.

Lu Loy:
Hello from Northwest North Carolina! I'm Lu and I've been married to my husband Mike for 40 years. We have a daughter who lives right outside of Chicago.  I can't really remember when I started using sketches...best guess would be 5-6 years ago. I can tell you, however, that my scrapping style totally changed and it continues to evolve. Almost every single layout I do begins with a sketch. When I discovered Sketch N Scrap I really got into card making. The card sketches I find here are simple, not fussy, and that complements my scrapping style. When I'm not scrapping, I like to sew, cross stitch and read. I'm happy to be one of the Guest Designers for World Card Making Day!

Sandi Pressley:
Hi, I am Sandi Pressley from Palm Coast, Florida which is on the east coast of the state between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. I am recently retired from selling roofing and building materials and am enjoying my retirement so far more than I even imagined. I have been a paper crafter for nearly 13 years now. I love all size canvases from cards and travelers notebooks to 12x12 traditional layouts. I was born and raised in Chicago. When Dave and I were married in 2003 we moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where we lived for 4 years until moving to Florida. I have two sons that still live in the Chicago area and they have given me 4 grandchildren ranging in age from 18 to 8...... Jake, Cole, Abby and Izzy. Their pictures and activities fill the scrapbooks on my shelves.  Besides crafting, I like to read, go out to lunch with friends, go to the gym and research future home improvements to keep my husband busy on the weekends. We are soon to become dog parents to a French Bulldog puppy. We are really excited!

I know these lovely, talented and creative ladies will inspire you with all of their amazing cards using our FOUR exclusive card sketches!  Make sure and follow us here on the blog or on Facebook or Instagram to be notified when our sketches go live! We hope you enjoy celebrate our month long celebration of World Card Making Day!!
