February Sketches

This is the second month of our new challenge format where we will be posting a card, single page, and double page sketch for you to work with the entire month. You can upload one creation for each of the sketches for up to three entries. One lucky person will be drawn from the entries to win a $25 gift certificate to the Scrapbook Express store. In order to have a monthly winner, there will need to be at least ten entries. The winner will be announced on the first of each month when the new challenge is issued. February’s sketches are brought to you compliments of Becky Fleck and PageMaps .

First up is the card sketch.


I loved the little pocket.  I thought it would be perfect to store those Valentine treats.

I chose this sketch for the single page sketch.


I love all the layering on this one.


Finally, for the double page sketch I thought this one would be great for those of you who wanted to do a January Scrap Your Year layout. There is room for lots of little photos and journaling as well.

I decided to create with the single page sketch.  I made this layout and then put it in my family planner binder.

The challenge: Create a card, single page, or double page layout for each of the sketches above. You can only submit one creation for each sketch, for up to three entries for the month, and it must be the same type of project for which the sketch was designed (i.e., card for card sketch).

PLEASE READ! 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 month of the current challenge and the sketch you are entering. (i.e., February double page sketch)

Projects must be new for this challenge. Projects cannot be combined with any other Scrapbook Express blog challenge. 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. Participants will have until the last day of the month at midnight MST (February 28th for this month) to upload entries for the current month. In order for a gift certificate to be given, there must be at least 10 different entries for the month.

Unfortunately we did not have enough entries for a January winner.  Happy scrapping!

    I love that card sketch! I really plan to play this month–I didn’t really do much scrapping in January. I have been working on a quilt.

    Love the double page sketch with the banner on the top left corner. I would love to play along.

  3. It has been nearly 12 hours and I still have not gotten a response. I tried to register again but that is still the random question. I have no idea what kind of response you are looking for. Paula, I am sorry you are having trouble. I will send this on to our tech department. Meanwhile, if you can’t get registered and have an entry, just link your creation to the original sketch post.
