It's that time again...here are two more lovely sketches by Anam Stubbington!
This month the sketches are "just for fun"...not one of our bimonthly challenges. But we really hope that if you use these sketches you will share what you have made, either here or on Facebook.
We are astounded each and every day by your creativity, so please keep sharing!

Tina says:I really 'expanded' the sketch idea, and used one of my favorite MME collections, Indie Chic Ginger. The colors and design of this collection is so perfect for many types of layouts, and to add more interest, I used the stamp from the collection to add my own personal touch.
Using the solid background of 'Relax' I created my own unique stamped design, using a lovely shade of pink distress ink that matched the pink in this collection perfectly.
I clustered several regular and chipboard buttons on the right side, and used a wooden title for my left cluster. **Special tip - the wood color didn't match my color palette as well as I liked, so I changed the color with white distress stain!**
I made a small banner for under the photo, and created a cute 'decorative tape banner' using an industrial sized safety pin, decorative tape, and twine.
Lastly, I moved my title down below the photo, instead of on the side. Since I used a smaller photo than the sketch suggested, I wanted to keep the focus on the photo and not overpower it with the title.
And here is the June card sketch:
Danni says:I loved layering the gorgeous papers from the Indie Chic Ginger 6 x 6 pad for the strips of paper in this sketch. These papers are so gorgeous by themselves, I love the patterns and colors, but layering them together truly made me giddy. I adhered the strips together and then stitched the edges.
Wonderful Day Card by Anam Stubbington
Supplies:Indie Chic-Citron:What a Day patterned paper,banner,layered stickers;Misc-sewing machine,thread,adhesives
Anam says:I went for subtle strips to allow the middle medallion to stand out. Also I cut up and layered the banner to keep the color scheme going and to give it more texture.
Can't wait to see what all of you MME fans do! Happy crafting-have a beautiful weekend!
