August 1 2017 Challenge Reveal

Hello there!

Welcome August!  As you know a new month means 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 Lindy's Stamp Gang for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a $25.00 gift certificate for their online store, to one lucky participant!

 Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki! Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes!

AND thank you to Charms Creations, who are also sponsoring this challenge, offering a $20.00 gift certificate for their online store, to one lucky participant!

My name is Charmane Koch & I am owner of Charms Creations! I am living in the Adelaide Hills, about 20 minutes from Adelaide, South Australia with my partner Ash & 3 gorgeous children - our son Chei aged 12 & two girls Harmony aged 10 & Ryarne aged 6!
I started Charms Creations back in 2010, after creating a few handmade creations for my own layouts I had a suggestion to make them and sell them to others. It started as selling only a few for a *Market* on a Scrapbooking Site, then selling them on my blog, then I started selling them on my Facebook Page.
I started selling them in a Big Cartel Store -http://charmscreations.bigcartel.com/ a few years ago, and still do, along with having sales & new releases over on the Charms Creations Facebook Page.
I am very lucky to also have a fantastic Creative Team who have been helping me spread the word with their gorgeous work around the web & in Scrapbooking Magazines.
I also have an AMAZING group of regular customers who also share their gorgeous work here in this fabulous group to give Ideas & Inspiration as well!
So please feel free to share YOUR work with us here - we would LOVE to see it!
Happy Creating!

ALSO, we want to show you how much we appreciate that you play along with us and share your designs and talent with us so we will be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!  For example, our chosen scrapbooker from our August 1st challenge will guest for our October 1st challenge!


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



Please help us welcome Jane Taylor, our guest designer joining us for our August 1st challenge!!


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

"Hi all. I'm Jane, aka Purplejet, and I'm so thrilled to be Guest Designing for this challenge. I live in the UK where scrapbook supplies and interest is not that great, but for me it's always been my first love when crafting - after all I get to keep what I've created!
I started scrapping as a way to present my family history and my first ever album was a very traditional family heritage one. After that came a couple of holiday albums and by then I was completely hooked! I now keep an album for each year containing a mix of 12x12 paper pages, Project Life pages and even the odd digital page too.
I also make cards and ATCs and am on the DT for a couple of challenge blogs and a UK stamp company. Oh and did I mention I look after my grandson a couple of days each week? He's the subject of the page I made with this new challenge's super sketch."

Here is Jane's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Jane, we love your page!

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

Please link up your layouts over in the sidebar by August 29th at midnight EST to be in the running for one of our prizes!   All prizes will be drawn randomly using Random.org 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 for our team to find your layout, especially if you blog often. You can also link from any gallery including Facebook and Flickr. (Though we may not be able to comment in all forums.)

Feel free to combine this sketch challenge with other non-sketch challenges, such as colour challenges.

Please post a link back to Stuck?! Sketches on your blog entry for our challenge.  We would also love for you to share the sketch, too!

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