My Favorite Things meets Page Maps - A Bonus Sketch Opportunity!

Welcome to a fun Monday edition live from the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! For the next three months, we will be having a bonus sketch in conjunction with PageMaps

Since 2006, PageMaps has been providing sketches for scrapbookers and card makers alike. As you know, a sketch can be just the kickstart you need to feel inspired and creative. 

Below you'll find the March PageMap sketch created exclusively for the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog. Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this week's sketch and be sure to link your project below for a chance at the weekly My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.

We invited members of the Challenge Team and the My Favorite Things Design Team to interpret the PageMaps CardMap . Let's see how they interpreted the sketch.

Challenge Team member Alice Wertz added the Precious Polaroid Die-namics in place of the tag.

Design team member Cindy Lawrence showcases the MP3 Die-namics in this youthful design.

Challenge Team member Erin Lee Schreiner proves that all that glitters IS gold by using Blueprints 22 Die-namics and the lovely Circle Scribble Flowers stamps and Die-namics.

Creative Team member Jill Dewey Hawkins focuses on the retro vibe of the Stay Tuned stamp set and Television Die-namics.

Design Team member Jodi Collins creates a colorful tag for her design. I love the creative background made with the Scattered Bars Stencil.

Design Team member Melody Rupple chose to create a stunning scrapbook layout with this sketch. How fun is that? Just goes to show that sketches can be as versatile as you make them.

Challenge Team member Miriam Prantner cleverly designed a card that doubles as a gift. Remove the tag, and you've got a cute bookmark to use!

Design Team member Stephanie Klauck used a soft and pretty color combination but added a lot of interest with stamping and heat embossing. 

Challenge Team member Vera Wirianta Yates gathered a trio of cute bunnies to frolic on her card design for a whimsical take on the PageMaps sketch. 

You have until Sunday, April 19, at noon EDT to add your link and be eligible for the prize of up to $20 in MFT Cash to be spent in the MFT boutique. Winners are chosen at random, so everyone has a chance! The prize is a $15 Gift Voucher to My Favorite Things, but if you use MFT stamps and/or dies in your project, you’ll receive an extra $5.

Join the fun at our MFT Challenge & Inspiration group on Facebook!

  2. I'm just a little surprised ....
    I came here from "page Maps blog" and found the task with the sketch very inspiring,
    now I realize that all of the wonderful excitations of "DT's" not with the links at inlinkz cover - should that be so?
    Sorry for my bad english and of course for that maybe surprised question, but I won´t make a mistake for that challenge
