My Favorite Things meets PageMaps - One More Bonus Sketch Opportunity!

Welcome to another fun Monday edition live from the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Today we have one more 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 May PageMaps 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 what they saw when they looked at the sketch.

Herd You Had a Birthday Card by Alice Wertz featuring the Birdie Brown The Whole Herd and Green Pastures stamp sets and Die-namics

Challenge Team member Alice Wertz has a stitched frame, and in place of the five hearts, she features five cutie pie creatures from two brand new Birdie Brown stamp sets — The Whole Herd and Green Pastures.

Each Day a Masterpiece by Donna Mikasa featuring the Lisa Johnson Designs Whimsical Wishes stamp set and Cross-Stitch Circle STAX Die-namics

Design Team member Donna Mikasa elongated the square sketch and turned the hearts into circles for this impactful design. The black stars from Blueprints 25 are the perfect finishing touch!

Awesome 80s Thank You Card by Erin Lee Schreiner featuring the Lisa Johnson Designs For the Boys stamp set and All My Love Die-namics

Challenge Team member Erin Lee Schreiner takes us back to the 80s with this colorful and rather direct take on the sketch. This card makes me want to lace up my roller skates and zoom in a large oval to the sounds of Prince and REO Speedwagon.

You Keep Me Sane Card by Jill Dewey Hawkins featurings the Friends Like Us stamp set and Laina Lamb Designs Donuts Die-namics

Creative Team member Jill Dewey Hawkins proves that our Donuts Die-namics have legs! Inlay some colorful card stock, and these donuts become totally rad circles. Jill incorporates the five shapes in paying homage to the sketch.
Cozy Floral Hello Card by Julia Stainton featuring the Rolled Rose, Happy Hellos, Royal Leaves, and Blueprints 25 Die-namics

Design Team member Julia Stainton keeps her card square like the sketch, but the five hearts become a beautiful bouquet using the Rolled Rose Die-namics. And can we just talk about all of that glorious stitching? Wowsers.

You Add Color Card by Miriam Prantner featuring the Laina Lamb Designs Stay Tuned stamp set and Pierced Star STAX Die-namics

Challenge Team member Miriam Prantner has a passion for stars, so it's no surprise that she bedecked her horizontal card with an array of colorful stars. Her Steel Grey background truly lets the stars shine. <-- See what I did there?
