"Halloween" card by Jill Sarginson
Supplies Used - Digital Kit: Kristin Aagard's Jeepers Creepers kit; Font: DJB How Cute Am I?


• Instead of horizontal strips of pattern paper, I used word elements.

• Instead of a die-cut or block, I put a house and a few elements.

• I moved the cluster up near the top and made it into a couple of clouds, a moon, and some bats.

• I added a banner title to the bottom of the sketch.

"Thank You" by Suzanna Lee
Supplies used - cardstock: Bazzill Basics; patterned paper: Die Cuts With A View, Frances Meyer; ribbon: American Crafts, The Paper Studio; stamps: Unity, All Night Media; ink: Versafine; twine: The Twinery; punch: Martha Stewart

Variation 1: I used a square instead of a rectangle as my "message" base and opted not to stitch around it. I also put another layer within it with the stamped image masked and pop dotted. This is were I put my embellishment.

Variation 2: I put my message below the square instead of within it.

Variation 3: I have another background layer before my card base.

"Celebrate" card by Carolyn Wolff
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill and American Crafts; Patterned Paper and Stickers: Simple Stories; Brads: Basic Grey; Floss: DMC and We R Memory Keepers; Ink: Ranger Distress Ink; Foam Dots: American Crafts

Variation #1 – I made my card larger to accommodate some of the elements. The finished measurement is 5 ½ x 7 ½ inches. I made the width of my strips ¾ inch instead of ½ inch.

Variation #2 – I moved the stitching from around the message block to the letters in my message.

Variation #3 – I used sticker embellishment above my message rather than in the right corner as indicated.

Variation #4 – I added some star stickers to the card base along the right side.

"Thank you" card by Amy Roller
Supplies - Patterned Paper: Stampin up!; Cardstock: Stampin up!; Punches: (Lace Border) Martha Stewart, (Butterfly) EK Success; Rhinestones: Close To My Heart; Title Letters: cut by Cricut; White Pen: Signo

I followed the sketch pretty close on this card.

Variation #1: I added in a few butterflies with rhinestones in place of the flowers on the bottom right corner.

Variation#2: I made my rectangle just a teeny bit taller than the sketch so I added 1 extra 1/2" strip up the right side to help balance it out.

Variation#3: I added a border punch up the right side of the card for a little extra detail.
