Today's guest "With us Wednesday"....

is none other than the fabulous Layle Koncar! Layle has been scrapbooking and paper crafting for over 11 years! She's not only an amazing designer but she also teaches and is considered a trend setter in the industry. Look at this adorable card she made with the Unity Stamps Baby Journey set...

Layle used American Crafts Pastel Cardstock, Pink Paislee's Honey Bunch patterned paper from the Sweet Cakes Collection, lined paper from Scenic Route, Doodlebug Stickers, Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch and colored pencils. The finished card size is 5x5. Here are the instructions for the card:

1. Trim cardstock to 5x10, score in half using Scor-Pal, fold to create card.
2. Cut 4.75x4.75 piece of Honey Bunch, punch border along bottom and adhere to card.
3. Outline inside of card using a fine tipped black pen.
4. Stamp baby stamp 2 times on white lined background; trim with scissors and color one dress pink and one blue with colored pencils. Adhere to Honey Bunch with pop dots for added dimension.
5. Add alphabet stickers under each dress.

Thank you, Layle, for joining us today! We hope you'll come back to visit us again soon!

Now, Tammy has transformed what once was sack into this adorable gift bag!

Tammy used the Hello Kitty with Flower Sizzlit, Hello Kitty So Sweet Sizzlit Border, and her Quickutz Nesting Flowers and Circles. This gift bag would be perfect for any girl and any occasion!

The warmth of the Sassafrass Lass papers insired Veronica to create this layout...

Veronica used the Revolution Weather shapes, the Galosh, and the 4x8 Chick-a-Dee alphabet. Here's a closeup view of the galoshes and the title...

I love the mixed font title and the layers!

I created this next card using the Making Memories Slice Wedding Design Card.

The 'friend' actually had an S on it but I cut it off to make it work. Then I heat embossed it with American Crafts Zing Glitter Embossing Powder before I adhered it to the card base. Here's a closeup so you can see the detail...

I ran the white strip of cardstock through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The decorative border was created using my new Fiskars Effervescence Border punch (these are in stock and will be on the site shortly!). I attached some ribbon and a Making Memories Curling Tag. Since I wanted a softer look, I used my chalks on the card edges instead of inks.

We're so glad you stopped by today! While you're here, take a moment to leave Layle a welcome comment and let us know what you liked best today! We'll be back here Friday with our reader's projects from last week's sketch and another great sketch for next week! See you then!
