Welcome to the reveal of our March 2019 Papercrafting Challenge! This month I am challenging you to use the below sketch from Ana Castro.
There is so much possibility in this sketch. It has some mixed media, layers, two spots for photos or clusters. You could even adapt this to a card front. I can’t wait to see how it inspires you!
To enter come over to my Facebook page. There will be a pinned post at the top of the page. To enter just comment with your creation on the pinned post. If there are at least five entries by the end of the month a random participant will win a coupon code to the shop for their next purchase.
I hope you find these challenges inspiring and I can’t wait to see what you create for the March 2019 papercrafting challenge!
Hey crafty friends! I’m here today sharing a layout/process video for the February 2019 Stretch The Sketch Layout collaboration. What is sketch the sketch you may be wondering. Well, each month a group of ladies take a sketch and makes something other than a 12×12 layout. Some ladies make art journal pages, double page spreads, traveler’s notebook spreads, 8.5 x 11, etc. There is no limit as long as it’s not 12×12.
Also, the group of ladies participating each month varies. Some ladies do every month, and others, like myself, just do it when we are able to fit in it. The nice thing about the flexibility is that each month there is new/different people so the interpretations are always new and fresh.
This month we are working with this sketch:
I chose to take the sketch and make a 9×12 single page layout with it. The kit I used was from Felicity Jane, and after much photo debate I went with one of the shots from our daughters 2nd birthday. Our photographer Laura did such a wonderful job capturing Julia’s personality despite her not watching to sit still for even two seconds.
Please join in watching me create the layout:
If you hop on over to the youtube video you can also find the links to the videos all the other ladies participating this month. I hope you’ll give them all a watch and find some inspiration for your next project. Until next time….stay crafty!

FEBRUARY 2019 STRETCH THE SKETCH LAYOUT SUPPLY LIST
If you haven’t been following along on my Facebook page I invite you to do that now! Each month I issue a challenge of some kind. Sometimes the challenge is a mood board, a sketch or something totally different. The February papercraft challenge is based on an amazing mood board.
The amazing February papercraft challenge mood board comes from Georgie The Content Creator. I loved that it was soft and dreamy like we think of love, but it didn’t scream Valentine’s Day. Don’t stick to just the colors though, feel free to think outside the box. Do the trees somehow inspire you? Do the flower petal in the left make you think of dragon scales….go for it! The whole point is to get you creating and using your stash.
When you are done creating head on over to my Facebook page. Pinned to the top of the page is the challenge announcement. Add a picture of your creation to that post. If there are five, or more, entries for the month random winner will be chosen for a gift certificate for the shop!
I can’t wait to see what you create, and I hope this inspires you to get in your area and have some fun. Until next time…stay crafty!
Hey Crafty Friends! Can you believe I’m back with another share so soon!? Don’t get used to it…haha. I’m trying very hard to get back to posting more frequently. The little one has stopped napping, and it has taken me some getting used to to find a posting schedule again. This time I’m sharing a layout with you for Southern Girls Challenge Blog. We were challenged to do something with animals so I created this grandfather and grandson layout of them watching the horses. Far fetched I know!
When our son was little my parents watched him two days a week. He loved animals and diggers…what boy doesn’t right!? When the weather was nice they went to local construction sites to watch the diggers and also local arms to watch the animals and horses. My mom captured this photo and I wanted our son to have it documented since his grandparents are so special to him.
The paper is a VERY old collection from Carta Bellas called Boy Oh Boy. I’ve been trying to kill this collection for years and I think I may actually still have bits and pieces laying around. This layout was done with the 6×6 paper pad though. I keep looking for ways to use all the 6×6 pads I have up, and I’m still not making a dent. Do you have any tips?
Thank you for checking out my share today, and I hope you’ll pop over to Southern Girls and check our what the rest of the girls created. As always, if you participate please remember to leave me a link so I can be sure to check it out. Also, leave me your 6×6 pad paper tips below too! Until next time…stay crafty!
