Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #3

Welcome to our third bi-weekly sketch challenge! We're re-starting this challenge this year after being on hiatus for a couple of months as we formed the design team. Our bi-weekly sketch challenges are fortnightly  posted on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month  and are open for 11 days (ending on a Friday).

Here’s the sketch for this challenge. It’s open to interpretation. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch, use different shapes, add other elements to suit the type of paper craft you’re making, and so on — just make sure the sketch is recognizable in your submission(s). And you can use stamps by other companies to create projects that you enter to our challenges, although if you have our stamps in your stash, we'd be tickled if you use them!

The sketch challenges are sponsored by our sister shop, All About Scrapping. The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop — any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs. The winner will also be invited to be a Guest Designer in next month's sketch challenge.

Each month, we host 3 challenges: 1 monthly challenge that starts on the 1st Friday, and 2 bi-weekly sketch challenges that start on the 1st and 3rd Monday. Those who participate in all 3 challenges for the month will be in the running to win a prize package from our sister shop, All About Scrapping. We'll randomly pick one winner and announce who that is the following month before the next monthly challenge starts. Remember, you must participate in all 3 challenge for a shot at the prize.

Here are the projects that the STAMPlorations design team created based on the sketch. We hope they’ll inspire you and we’re excited to see your intrepretations!

  • Create a card, tag, mini album/scrapbook cover, layout, home decor item or any paper craft on ANY THEME using the sketch as your guide. Any style is welcome — CAS, shabby chic, vintage, grunge, and so on. Post your creation on your blog and submit it by 11:55 p.m. PST on Friday, January 17. Don’t have a blog? You can post a photo of your project on your Pinterest page, Flickr, or any public online gallery.
  • You must use stamps (rubber, cling, clear, digi — from any company) in your creation(s).
  • Copy the link of your blog entry where you have your project posted and enter it to the linky found at the end of this post. Remember to link directly to your blog post, not just your blog URL. (This will make it easy for us to find your submission and leave a comment. Please turn off word verification as well.)
  • You can submit up to 3 entries for this challenge.
  • You can submit your creation(s) to other challenges — as many as you want.
  • Be a follower of our blog to qualify for the prize.
  • And lastly, have a great time creating your project! :-)
We’ll announce the winner and top picks on Sunday, January 19 here on the STAMPlorations™ blog and on the All About Scrapping page on Facebook. That’s it…we look forward to seeing what you create!

  1. So happy to have found you through Vicki's blog. What fun challenges, hope to enter the other two as well. I don't have any of your stamps but would love to.
    So, for now I am having to use other maker's stamps.
    Have a great weekend.


Spammers have been in full force lately so I had to turn comment moderation on. We love hearing from fellow crafters (not spammers), so your comment will be approved as soon as possible. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
