Sponsor Spotlight - Lil' Inker Designs



Lil' Inker Designs with ag designs is the creative venture of two high school friends Laura Pryor, founder and owner of Lil' Inker Designs, and Ariana Grant, professional graphics artist and owner of ag designs. Laura has a creative vision, but Ariana makes these visions come to life! 

They say that necessity is the mother of all invention and that's so true for Lil' Inker Designs as our very first release, Sentiment Flags, was born from the need to have a flag-ended die for sentiments for our own crafty projects! One year later we have a full line of fun and innovative quality products from Pinwheels to Fringe Flowers!  Our stamps and dies are made using only the best quality merchandise this industry has to offer and all of our products are proudly manufactured in the USA! Please visit our brand new store at www.lilinkerdesigns.com and our blog atwww.shoplilinker.blogspot.com!

Update Regarding Contest Links

Just a quick note to let everyone know the CPS Designers are working their way through the amazing cards from all of you and we love what we are seeing!! While viewing these gorgeous creations all links are also being verified for the correct sketch and direct links to the proper card.  If broken, incorrect or non-direct links are found they are being removed from the Mr Linky boxes and will not be eligible for the daily prizes or grand prize. With the exception of the Grand Prize post all entries need to have a direct link to the card being entered (not the blog itself). We don't want anyone to miss out on these great prizes and with so many entries it is virtually impossible to contact each entrant about issues with links so we ask that all readers double check to verify that their links are correct before the link boxes are closed Saturday 11:59pm CDT.
If you find you have entries that have been removed feel free to repost with the direct link.
If you need help with posting direct please see this post for detailed instructions. 
If you have any questions please let us know and thanks again to all of you who have played along so far!!!

Hey there everyone!  It's Lea Lawson here, hosting day 13 of the CPS 5th Anniversary!  I have been with CPS since the VERY beginning, when I was also just a beginner card maker.  What an incredible journey it has been, growing alongside one of the best sketch challenges out there.  I love using the sketches and seeing how each design team member interprets them.  We have the greatest group of designers, both current and alumni, and you just know you are going to find some lovely inspiration all week long! 


Apart from CPS, I am also the design team coordinator for a product manufacturer, Glitz Design.  I am also on the design teams for Lawn Fawn & WPlus9 stamps.  You will often see my work in Cards Magazine, and among other publications as well.  I have a blog that I frequently post to, and you can check that out at Lea's Cupcakes & Sunshine.  Other than that, I am also a wife, sister, daughter and professional photographer. {No really...I am.  I followed my dream and went to photography school in 2009.  I started my business shortly after, and now focus on boutique wedding photography & fashion infused seniors.}

CPS 5th Anniversary Day 12 with Lisa Silver and Clearsnap

Welcome to Day 12 of the CPS 5th Anniversary Celebration.  


Welcome! My name is Lisa Silver and I'm hosting today's sketch challenge.

I have been stamping for about 7 years, 5 of those years on various design teams.  I was honored to join CPS in December of 2009.  Perhaps it's a bit of OCD, but I love having a project plan... I love having the road map, which sometimes I follow closely or interpret for a little side-trip!  I also love the camaraderie of this amazing team.  Have you seen the line up of designers I get to work with each week?

Besides CPS, I design for Outlines Rubber Stamps and DiscountCardstock.com.  When I'm not crafting, I am a wife and mother (of two wonderful children).  I work in the chemical industry by day and love crafting for it's therapeutic properties.  I also love to read, spend time with my family and travel.

You can can find me at my blog Silver Stamping for more projects and inspiration.

An all-time favorite CPS project was a more recent project for CPS Sketch # 250.

I just loved this project because of the mash-up of patterned paper, stamping and embellishments.  Creating just gives me joy.

For today’s sketch I chose CPS #118.
