February 15th Reveal and a Guest!


It's time for a new sketch challenge!  But first let's chat about the sponsors for this challenge.  A big thank you goes out to  Buttons and Badges, for sponsoring our February 15th challenge, they are offering a $20.00 gift certificate (and free U.S. shipping ) to one lucky participant!

"At Buttons and Badges we sell various assortments of flat back buttons, pin back buttons, cabochons, pocket mirrors as well as other various crafting supplies - ones we can’t seem to live without. Our shop and inventory continue to grow and evolve. With a household of six gals (and one very patient man) creating and making things is a daily event, one that seems to be a necessity and brings us happiness."

AND thank you to our very own Lucia who is so multi talented!  She has an Etsy shop called Scrapbook & Design, and has graciously offered to sponsor this challenge, offering 4 digital paper packs to a second lucky participant!

"Lucia Barabas offers various design services, such as business design, web/blog design, stationery design or patterns that can be found on her page or in her little Etsy shop. But she is also a passionate crafter and scrapper. Put all these things together and you will get some lovely digital paper packs for scrapbooking and cardmaking as well."

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....

This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming the lovely and talented Lynn Shokoples!!

I will let Lynn tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi Everyone! My name is Lynn Shokoples and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I've been married for almost 30 years, have two wonderful young adult children and two wild rambunctious puppies!! They all keep my life interesting and full of laughs. I've been scrapbooking for as long as I can remember. Back in the days where there was just paper, scissors and a few stickers. It's amazing to see how the industry has grown. I love to do layouts, cards, altered projects and have recently started playing with some mixed media and art journaling. I've been blessed to have been on a few design teams and love meeting scrapbookers from around the world. You can find me on facebook or blogging away at Thank you so much for inviting me to guest design for Stuck?. I'm looking forward to making some new friends and being inspired by the amazing team here!"

Here is Lynn's layout based on our sketch.

Thank you for joining us Lynn!

Now lets have a look at our truly incredible DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by February 26th (sorry it is a short month)  to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using to pick a number.

When linking your layouts, please make sure it is linked to the specific post your layout is in, not your blog as a whole as it can be hard later in the month to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr.

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with no more than one other non-sketch challenge, such as a colour challenge.

Thank you for visiting, we cannot wait to see what you create!
