Card Sketch Booklets

Kristina Werner's Make a Card Monday post on September 14th gave a tutorial on how to make these adorable sketch booklets. She designed the templete and has a link to it on that post. I decided to try my hand at making these and I absolutely love them. I have made several so far and can't wait to make more. I will mostly use them for myself and as door prizes at stamp camps, etc. I think they will make great little gifts or giveaways and I just love making them. It is so easy and fun and of course different than a traditional card. These 3 booklets use the leftovers from a Simply Scrappin' kit used at Jennifer's Simply Scrappin' class a few months ago. I was going to use the leftovers to make additional cards and I still might do that, however right now I am loving how they work for these little booklets. I can't wait to make more :)
Here is the first one I made. The word "create" is cut out using my Slice. It works perfect for this project.
These are the second two made using the same concept.

On a more serious note, I'm shouting out a little prayer for our friends. Their 17 year old daughter was hit while riding her bicycle home from work last night. Fortunately, there weren't any broken bones...which they thought for sure she would have based on how bad her leg that was hit by the car looked. She has alot of bruising and soreness, some road rash and some scrapes. I babysat an 8 month old and an 8 year old for them while they were at the hospital awaiting the results of the Xrays. The ironic thing about this incident was it was deemed her fault. They were at an intersection and she was turning onto a cross street 1 block from her house. She did not signal her turn so the car that hit her reported he didn't know which way she was going. However, she didn't know which way he was going either, so she felt it safe to make her turn. It just goes to show you that you can't take anything for granted. Just because someone has their blinker on, doesn't mean they are turning or just because you have a green light doesn't mean its safe to proceed through the intersection.

Have a great rainy day everyone!!!

Love the books. You did an awesome job. I'm so glad everyone is okay. Yes, I've seen cars with their signals on and they don't turn.
