Below you'll find the April 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.

My Favorite Things meets PageMaps April Sketch

We invited members of the Challenge Team and the My Favorite Things Design Team to interpret the PageMaps CardMap . Let's see what they saw when they looked at the sketch.

Sweet Hello Card from Alice Wertz featuring the BB Somebunny stamp set and Precious Polaroids Die-namics

When it comes to sketches, it's all about inspiration! Challenge Team member Alice Wertz features the floral portion of the sketch on the left, but that's about it. Her use of the Precious Polaroid Die-namics is the perfect place to showcase her adorable focal image.

Butterfly Thinking of You Card from Barbara Anders featuring the MPD WInged Beauties stamp set and Die-namics

Design Team member Barbara Anders on the other hand takes the sketch literally, from the three panels, butterfly, and four arrows in place of the postage stamp shapes in the sketch.

Fab Card from Erin Lee Schreiner featuring the Bold Statements stamp set and Photo Booth Props Die-namics

Challenge Team member Erin Lee Schreiner has a modern take on the sketch with bright colors and sophisticated black. What a fun way to use the Photo Booth Props Die-namics

Sweet Smile Card from Jill Dewey Hawkins featuring the Tweet on You stamp set  Die-namics

Creative Team member Jill Dewey Hawkins is hip to be square! She takes the horizontal sketch and modifies it for an adorable square card!

You're the Sweetest card from Jodi Collins featuring the LJD You're the Sweetest stamp set  Die-namics

Design Team member Jodi Collins squares up the sketch, too, and makes the four postage stamps into a grid. It's the perfect place to highlight these yummy cupcakes from the You're the Sweetest stamp set and Dienamics.

So Very Grateful Card from Miriam Prantner featuring the DC Thankful Thoughts and Modern Blooms stamp sets

Challenge Team member Miriam Prantner took a vertical approach to the sketch in this soft and pretty card. She admits to having a bit of a crush on Grout Gray card stock!

Banner Hello Card from Stephanie Klauck featuring the Diagonal Stripes Background stamp and Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics

Design Team member Stephanie Klauck uses the three panels and button with twine of the sketch, but she wrangles the postage stamps into a banner. So much fun!

Jaunty Hello Card from Teri Anderson featuring the Stitched Rectangle and Pierced Star STAX Die-namics

Design Team member Teri Anderson takes the sketch quite literally but gives it a playful edge with citrusy color choices and bold stars rather than flowers and a butterfly.

Springy Thinking of You Card from Vera Wirianta Yates featuring the BB Somebunny, LJD Spring Tulips, and LJD All My Love stamp sets

Challenge Team member Vera Wirianta Yates saw the three postage stamps in the sketch as the perfect opportunity to create this cutie pie spring card. I love that she uses images from three different stamp sets!
