Saturday Sketch Challenge ~ 111

Another Wonderful week! Actually this week 5 of your 6 operators are at the Stampin Up! convention here in hot and sunny Salt Lake City Utah!

We may be busy, but we're not too busy to provide this weeks sketch challenge! I know that I got some of my best swaps from this sketch! I hope that you have some time to play along this week and if you're in Salt Lake city, make sure you find someone with the 411 pin on and say hello!

You can tell I started writing this post before we left.. There were some amazing accomplishments at convention by our operators and we're so happy and proud to share them with you..

Without further delay, lets get down to measurements

Base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
second layer: 4 x 5 1/4"
Third layer: 5 1/4 x 1 1/2". Note: if you cut a 12 x 12 to this size, you can get 18 pieces from one sheet!
you can run some ribbon on top to cover the seam, then measure your stamp block for the base of the focal point..

Please note, this is only a guide, and as you can tell our operators take liberties with the sketches! Please have fun! No rules... just go make a card!

Here's what our operators had to share this week:

Gretchen Barron

Connie Babbert

Selene Kempton

Lee Conrey

Patti Chesky

Robin Merriman
