ALCM instructions plus a Bonus Freebie!

Good Monday Morning Everyone!

I love playing along with the challenges over at the Coffeehouse Forum and one of my favorites is the Card Sketch Challenge now hosted by members Anne Marie and Marya. They have already come up with some amazing sketches and this months' sketch is no different.

I sat down and created some simple ALCM aka card making instructions for this fun sketch.
October 2013 Card Sketch Challenge
 There were some nice scraps left over from this ALCM so I made a second sketch using the scraps and added a simple set of card base cutting instructions for that sketch as well!   Enjoy!

Editor's note:  I just realized I forgot to mention something... Ooops!  After I assembled the Card Sketch Challenge card it looked like this.

*The diamond points are sticking over the edges.
Flip the card over and trim off the access cardstock to create the final look.
Thanks so much for coming by and have a terrific week!

  1. Julie, this is awesome! I was going to start on my card yesterday but decided to wait for your ALCM instructions - these are fantastic! And I really love the bonus card you can make too - always love a bonus. Can't wait to try these out.

  2. Great job, Julie! That looks like a tough sketch to make an ALCM out of. :)

  3. Thanks for the great sketches and cutting formulas, Julie! Woo hooo!

  4. I am amazed that I get to hang out with such creative, talented people. Thank you, Julie and CS!

  5. Another winner! Great sketch choice by Anne Marie and Marya, and great formula by you, Julie. TFS!

  6. Great sketch and ALCM you came up with, Julie! I keep on wondering how you do this!
