This month ScrapMuch? and Stuck?! Sketches have teamed up for a layout and colour challenge. ScrapMuch? is a frequent sponsor of Stuck?! Sketches. And Stuck?! Sketches invited the ScrapMuch? Design Team to take part in creating some inspiration for the challenge.
I’ve used a lot of Stuck?! Sketches for my non-ScrapMuch? layouts. I’ve taken part in a few challenges. I’m also highly skilled at missing Stuck?!’s deadlines by mere minutes too. I’m always delighted with the layouts I create, so not all is lost!
So here’s the rundown. ScrapMuch? provided the colour challenge, like they run every month. Stuck?! Sketches provided the sketch. You can choose to work with the colour challenge and post just to ScrapMuch? for a chance at a prize. You can choose to work with the sketch and just post to Stuck?! Sketches for a chance to win a prize. OR – You can combine the 2 and submit to both for double the chance to win a prize! Excited yet?!
To play along with ScrapMuch?, all you have to do is create a new paper crafted project, of any type, that uses at least 4 of the colours from the colour board and post it on your blog or any other online forum (ie. your Flickr Account) that you can link us up to, by our deadline of February 28th at midnight. Then link it using the Inlinkz tool in the sidebar.
To play along with Stuck?! Sketches, please link up your layouts over in their sidebar by February 28th, 2015 to be in the running for one of their prizes! All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org to pick a number.
Please visit this post on Stuck?! Sketches for all the rules for joining in with this sketch challenge.
And here is my take using both the colour challenge and the sketch:
Supplies used: Cardstock-Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper-October Afternoon; Mist-Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Buttons-American Crafts; Journal Card-Simple Stories; Bling-Bazzill Basics; Chipboard-Crate Paper; Die Cut Machine-Silhouette Cameo; Pens-American Crafts, Stampin’ UP!
This pic is from dinner one night at Inspiration Unlimited with some of my favourite scrapbooking ladies (and we’re definitely missing a few from the photo too!). They are a highlight of every scrapbook event for me for several years running now. I don’t just go for the projects and inspiration, I go for the friendship and camaraderie too. The title is fitting, when we get together, we have very Happy Times.
I dug deep into my stash again and used a lot of things I’d been “saving”. I’m learning that it’s far better to just use the stuff as I get it because after saving stuff for years I fall out of love with it and wonder what on earth I ever saw in it in the first place. I also found that the patterns all blended into each other too easily so I just outlined to make each part pop a little.
Thank you Stuck?! Sketches for inviting us to take part in your challenge! Please make sure you stop by both the Stuck?! Sketches and the ScrapMuch? blogs for some crafty inspiration. Of course I’d love for you to work with the 2 challenges and share your creations with us!
Thanks for popping by and have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back in one week for sure with some more ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday inspiration!
