Sketch Something CHALLENGE

I hope everyone had as much fun creating their "faux" projects last week as I did checking them out! I think I have about 8 new faux techniques to try out, I can't wait!! A big thanks to everyone who played along with us last week and we're happy to see you and some new faces this week for a very exciting challenge.

This week, we are super excited to announce our first guest designer!!! Her name is Katharina Frei of Katharina's Creative Place!! In addition to creating a fabulous card for inspiration, Katharina also provided us with this sketch!!!! --------------> Isn't it fabulous???

Before you check out what our design team created for inspiration, here are a few somethings about Katharina........

Personal somethings....
Katharina was born in Vienna , the capital of Austria , but moved to Switzerland in 2007 with her Swiss husband, Marcel, and two boys, Niklas and Noel. She is a SAHM, but works part-time as a Web Content Manager, which she does from home to still be there for her kids fulltime.

Stamping somethings......
Stamping and card making are her passion and addiction. She loves to craft with stamps, colour them in, design card layouts and try new techniques.
Her favorite stamps companies are High Hopes Rubber Stamps and Sugar Nellies. She just loves their adorable and versatile designs.
She loves to share her ideas and creations with other crafters and hopes to provide inspiration!



<-------Here is her amazing design based on her sketch.
Of course we have a little blog candy for you this week too!!! Including some fabulous images, embellishments and a sheet of SU's accents and elements. Just comment on THIS post with a link to the project on your blog or online gallery and you'll be entered to win!! Don't have a blog, just email it to us! All entries must be in by Thursday, June 5 at 7pm ET.



Thanks for sketching something!!!
