In response to requests from some of our members, the bloggers at Scrapbook {Express}ions have taken on the challenge of hosting our own monthly sketch challenge called Scrap Your Year! Similar to Project 12, we’ll provide a two-page sketch for you to use with photos from each month. You will have virtually the whole month to turn this one in.  (The due date will be the same as the last challenge offered for the month). This is the only challenge from the SE blog that will have the extended due date. All other challenges will be due weekly as usual.

Here’s our first sketch for the month of January 2012 and the layout I made.

We R Memory Keepers Travel Light collection papers

American Crafts cardstock
American Crafts Thickers
American Crafts Slick Writer
Clearsnap Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink
Bo Bunny Blitzen Ribbon
American Crafts This to That Foam Adhesive

The challenge: Create a traditional paper layout using the sketch we provide.  The theme must be about January.   You may upload one project for this challenge.  You can use all or just a side of the sketch, but we must see the resemblance. Special thanks to Becky Fleck at for this month’s sketch.

For those of you that do not like the idea of making a layout documenting the month, we don’t want to leave you out either.  You can also participate in the sketch challenge choosing whatever subject/theme you would like, HOWEVER, you MUST use both sides of the sketch.  You will also have the extended deadline to upload these. All layouts are due on February 29, 2012.


Participants must register in the Scrapbook Express forums and gallery. It is free. If you haven’t already registered please remember it might take up to a day to be approved. Participants should upload their projects into the “Blog Contest” section in the gallery. Please title your project with the name of the current challenge you are entering. For this sketch please title your project January 2012.

Projects must be new for this challenge. Projects cannot be combined with any other Scrapbook Express forum challenge or Scrapbook Express Design team assignment. By submitting to the challenge, participants give the right to the Scrapbook Express Blog team to post pictures of their entries on the winning announcement post. Happy scrapping!

    Great LO, Jolene! I love this sketch! Since I really want to start adding more pictures to my LOS–I think I will just do these as double page LOS.
