Bringing up the rear

again this month is Eileen's sketch LO, she likes a deadline does our Eileen but usually the wait is worth it!

Eileen has simplified the sketch whilst creating her LO, again we see a journal tag replace one of the photo from the sketch.

We now you've seen them all are you all fired up to scrap using the sketch come Saturday?

Have you waited long enough?

Well wait no longer...........

Don't you just love what Nicola's done with this month's kit? Yes there's paint but Nicola's gonna be on hand to help so no need to fret, it's gonna be OK.

It started with a little of this .......

My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine - Out and About
My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine - Uptown
My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine - On the Spot
Plus Coordinating Bazzil cardstock

Add a little paint (you can't go far wrong with white), a paint brush and alpha from your own stash and  you too can be revving up your creativity.

What did you think we were gonna reveal all? 

What we can tell you is you'll need one 6" x 4" landscape photo plus two 3" x 4"  portrait photos.

Sketches are not just for

LOs! Oh no, they work well for cards as well.

Check out the card Janice has made for her sister and brother in law's ruby wedding anniversary.

Now Janice may have sidestepped the traditional red colours for ruby anniversary in favour of the fab tones and hybrid elements from Februarys ScrapaGoGo's Happiness Is...... kit but all the elements form the sketch are there.

Do check back soon as we have some kit news and images to share real soon.

Todays offering

is a tasty little number from Nicola.

Nicola is on a mission, a mission to Use It Up and if truth be known she's the ring leader! So with that in mind she was never gonna get away with new stash, so she dip once again into 'What A Picture!' that was ScrapaGoGo's March Kit to create Flash Bang Wallop ...What a Picture.

So are you gonna play along with this month sketch? New stash or are you gonna join Nicola and her merry band of Use It Uppers?

Nicola has been

doing a little sharing with us organisers about what she has in mind for this month's class LO. Now we can't possible divulge all the detail now, it'd be more than our lives are worth but we think you're gonna love it.

What we can share is Janice's take on this month's sketch. 

Janice has been delving deep into her old GoGo kit leftovers to play along with ScrapaGoGo's GoGo Use It Up, as well as playing along with this month's crop sketch.

GoGo Use It Up is all about using up your stash and in the case of ScrapaGoGo kit subscribers making the most of ever last scrap of their box of GoGo goodies. If you'd like to play along why not register on the clubhouse and check out all that's going on.

Did you know

it's just 22 sleeps until the next crop? With that in mind we thought it best to get the ball rolling. 

Yes a new month means a new sketch. 

First to share a LO based on this month's sketch is Lorraine, who's been playing with June's 'Things to Make and Do!' and July's 'Fun of The Fair' ScrapaGoGo kits.

Lorraine has kept pretty true to the sketch except on her LO she has substituted the third photo for the shield shaped map which if you look closely you'll notice she's draw a dotted line representing the route they took for this holiday.

We have more pretties to share but that's it for now, be sure to check back soon for more LOs and news.

Dear Create & Co Cropees,

So July is here and that means just one thing, July Crop details are starting
to appear on the Blog and we need to know if you are coming along (or not too).

Starting with July Crop we are no longer having sponsor crop kits, now that not mean
that we will not be having a kit included in the crop fee it simply means we are having
a little change so that we can keep things fresh and exciting!

July Crop Kit will included the technique of painting, mainly dry brush painting and will be
designed and taught by Nicola. Don't forget to check out the Blog regularly for peeks and
'to bring' tips.

*We also have a very special crop planned for August - more details to follow shortly*

Don't forget to post on the Blog posts or Facebook to be in with a chance at winning
your crop space for FREE!

Kindest regards,

Create & Co
