Another sketch challenge- this time for Aussie Crafters

Once more I decided to step outside my comfort zone and try something new. This time the challenge was designed by a different group, Aussie Crafters.

I have only just recently joined the Aussie Crafters Facebook group. This group is open to people from Australia who do all types of craft. They have a new swap, challenge and sketch each month. They are open to every level of crafters from beginners to advanced. I have found it a great place to get inspiration. Every person has their very own way of crafting, so this is exposing me to so many different styles.

This was the sketch for February.

This was my entry for this challenge. It was certainly very different from my normal creations.

Using a sketch to create

So I decided  I would try something new - a sketch challenge.

I've seen sketches for cards and scapbooking pages all over Pintrest, but had never given one a go before. This was my first time following a sketch and my first time doing a challenge.

This was the Art with Heart creative team challenge. Here was the sketch I followed.

The card I designed for the challenge.

Crazy Crafters' March Blog Hop- New Saleabration Products

It's a long weekend here in Melbourne. This means an extra day of family time, with maybe a little crafting thrown in.

A few days ago Stampin' Up! released four new free Sale-a-bration products! These will only be available until the end of March and are available for free with each purchase of $90 or more. This months Crazy Crafters theme, centres around these new items.

New products are always exciting. These ones are also such fun to use and so pretty. I will have to get at least one more order in between now and the end of sale-a-bration so I can get my hands on some more of the pretty vellum. Sheer perfection vellum is my new favourite out of all of the saleabration items. I can see so many different uses for it.

Here is my first play with the gorgeous stamp sets and some of the vellum.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop.
