April sketch challenge and Print & Play from Cathy Z!

April sketch challenge and Print & Play from Cathy Z!

It's a two-fer Saturday! First, to those that have followed our challenges this year, we are so sorry this one has come a wee bit late! We had the post scheduled however operator error and the post was left in draft! (psst…it's Catherine here and I'm the operator!) It wasn't until some readers asked last week that we realized what happened. But for working quickly ladies, we're going to reward you! So first here is our April sketch challenge…


This beautiful sketch from the talented Becky Fleck of PageMaps was featured on page 31 of our spring issue! Look at those flowers! It's just calling for a beautiful floral paper and some fussy cutting! But the sketch is yours to do what you like and we can't wait to see what you do with it! As always though, we have a prize package! Want to know what you're playing for? 


You are playing for the fun Emoji Love collection from Simple Stories! Bold colors and sassy sayings mash up with your favorite graphic icons in this next playful, totally awesome new collection from Simple Stories.  Emoji Love will have you LOL’ing while you express yourself & craft away with your BFFs in style!

But wait there's more! As we know you need to work a little quicker we are going to sweeten the prize pot a little! The randomly selected winner will receive a one year subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine starting with our brand new spring issue!


Submission Guidelines:

You'll have until April 26th to complete the challenge and send it to us at ideas@scrapbookandcards.com with "April Sketch Challenge" in your reference line.Please keep your image under 2mb. We will be sharing many of the layouts we receive on April 29th. Mark your planners and challenge yourself to create a fun layout inspired by the sketch above! A winner will be randomly selected to win the prizes above.


Print & Play by Cathy Z!

We always love when our Art Director Cathy Z creates a fun, seasonal printable for our readers! You can use this on a layout, card, home decor or other crafting project! We would love to see what you create with it so be sure to tag us on Instagram at @sctmagazine or post it on our Facebook page! Cathy has also created it that would allow you to run it through your Minc machine or other foil system!


Have a wonderful day SCT friends!

~ Catherine
