Good morning SCT friends! As we are more than halfway through July we thought it a perfect time for a sketch challenge! We're sure you've taken many summer photos by now that need to be on a layout so we chose one of our favourite sketches by Cathy Zielske from the summer issue and have a challenge for you!

Here's the sketch:


Here's the challenge:

  • Create a layout (one or two page!) based on the sketch above.
  • Upload it to the gallery on our Facebook page HERE or send it to us at and we'll upload it to the Facebook SCT Summer Sketch Challenge gallery.
  • If sending by email, please provide us with your full name.

Here's the deadline:  July 31st


Here's the PRIZE!: (you didn't think we would have a challenge without a prize did you?!!!)

We will randomly select one winner to win the grand prize – the brand new "Hello Fall" collection from Simple Stories! We will also select four other winners to win a copy of our summer issue (or fall if you have the summer one!) 

We're always excited to see what you create! We would also love for you to share this challenge with a friend. Tag us on Facebook or Instagram (@sctmagazine) and we'll compile all the tags and offer another randomly selected prize for one lucky winner just for "sharing!" We know you're the sharing kind so share away! 

Join us and take the SCT Summer Sketch Challenge!
