Sketch 229 Challenge :)

Sorry I've been MIA...just busy.  But I knew I needed to get on here because I owe you another fun sketch.  :)  So here it is...


If you are new to my sketches, here's how it works:

I essentially create three versions of one sketch each time. There will be one 12x12 scrapbook sketch, one double page sketch (12x24), and one card sketch (A4). This makes it easier for all types of crafters to participate. :)

Of course, there will be prizes.

So for today's sketches:

Sketch 229a -- 12x12 layout
Sketch 229b -- Two Page Layout
Sketch 229c -- Card (A4)


And now for the prize up for grabs...


This contains:
* Party Games kit from Vintage Street Market (includes 2-24x36" decorative papers, 1-24x36" red foil sheet, 1-24x36" yellow crepe sheet, 1 diecut sheet of 36 cardboard tags and things)
* Vintage Vogue kit from Pink Paislee (includes 24 pieces of double-sided cardstock papers--2 each of 12 designs)
* 5 transparencies and 1 patterned paper from Hambly Screenprints
* 1 sheet of paper from Piggy Tales.
* 1 package of 8 flowers (Velvet Pleats) from Maya Road
* 1 package of Trinket Pins from Maya Road
Ribbons (4 designs) from Pink Paislee 
* Buttons (45 pieces) from Fancy Pants Designs

Nice, huh?

THE RULES:
*  Your project must be newly made for this challenge, and then linked below.
*  You can use the sketches for any type of project, not just scrapbook pages or cards.
*  Please post which sketch you used with your project.
*  Feel free to combine with other challenges.  :)
*  You can enter as many times as you like.  

AND FOR BONUS ENTRIES:
*  Check out my sketchbook here.  Pick a favorite sketch and use it for an additional project.  You can do this as many times as you'd like.  These must be newly made for this challenge too.  

DEADLINE IS THURSDAY, JAN 31ST.  

I hope you play along!!  :)  



And who wants to know who won the last challenge?  

The winner is...

Congratulations Gloria!!!  Send me your address to pamelacy@msn.com and I will get your goodies mailed out to you!  :)

And thanks again to everyone who played along!  



I do have one more thing I wanted to share with you today, I've got a new stamp set that I designed for Unity...


You can see it and buy it here.  You can also get it for free through this promotion.  :)  I think it is perfect for scrapbooking!  But it also works for cards and other projects.  Check out this awesome card Natalie made using the set:

Natalie does great work!  You should check out her blog here.

Anyways...just wanted to show you an example of the set in action.  :)

Ok...well I hope to see your projects using the new sketch soon!  And if you do something with my new stamp set I would LOVE to see that as well!  :)

Have a fabulous day!!!

Congratulations on the stamp set! I love it (and the card)! Thank you for the sketch. I have such a hard time with landscape oriented photos so this is very helpful to me. :)

Ruth G said...

Pamela, so glad to see you back! I love that you include two-pagers of your sketches as frequently that's the way I prefer to scrap. I think your new stamp set is fantastic! I love maps and travel and "Life is a Journey" really puts into images and words how I feel!
I didn't see a card sketch. Is there one for this round or just layouts?
Thanks again for sharing your sketches! They are fun and inspiring!

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Loveeeeeee the sketches and congrats to Gloann!! And HUGE congrats to YOU about the stamp set and your card is gorgeous!

Pamela said...

Ruth--there should be a card sketch...I can see it on my phone. Did it hide? Or perhaps try refreshing the page? Let me know if you still can't see it.

Ruth G said...

I still can't see the card sketch. Perhaps I need to use your phone;-)
I wonder if I'm the only one who can't see it?

Miriam Prantner said...

Thank you so much for the wonderful paper collection. I have sent you my mailing address as requested. I can hardly wait to begin using some of it.

I'm especially loving this month's sketch. I am printing a copy of the 2 pager and hoping to work on it today.

Pamela said...

Thanks to everyone for playing along!! There were a couple that I couldn't leave comments on...

Ruth G.--LOVE your layout. Believe it or not, I have yet to get a Pinterest account so I wasn't able to leave a comment or anything, but I wanted you to know that I saw it and thought it was great!

April Jones--I love yours too...it looks beautiful. Unfortunately I couldn't view it on the link because facebook wouldn't allow me to, perhaps I have to be your friend to view it.

But no worries...both of these links still count towards the prize. :)

Thanks again everyone!
