June 22 Sketch Challenge

 Whew! Another Friday with a fabulous weekend on the horizon! Can't wait for some awesome family time and a bit of scrappy time as well. It is always a delight to bring you an original sketch done by one of our co-leaders. This one was done by Sandi, hey, that's me! I really had fun with this one and I hope you will too! Banners are still so "in." This has been a very long lasting trend, don't you think? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on that! 

So, anyway, are you ready to be inspired? I know that This team always amazes me with their talent and hard work. Thanks, ladies! We'd be nowhere without these fabulous gals!

June 15th Die Cut Challenge ~ All About Fathers ~

Well, we're not sure about you but over here at SOUS we get pretty excited about Fridays! It's the weekend and even if you are working all weekend long, it still seems better than a Monday,  right?
So today we have a new Die Cut Challenge for you and it's a favorite theme of mine! 

~ All About Fathers ~ 

We've got some great examples to share
with you today and talk about variety! There's so many ideas
and the girls have given you only a taste of what
 you may want to create yourself! Either way, we can't wait
to come visit you and see what you have created! Just remember that your project must be NEW as of today AND you must use a DIE CUT of some kind on your project! 

Before we roll out the DT creations, we want to say Thank You for all the awesome DT applications we have received. Today is the last day of the DT call and we are in the process of making our final decisions! So, if there are any stragglers out there, you'd better hurry!

Okay,  it's time to roll out the DT's awesome projects! You're going to love them!

Now, we can't say good-bye without announcing our Top 3 for the May 25th sketch challenge. It was really, really hard again this time and we almost had a Top 4 LOL! But here they are! Ladies, leave a comment with your email and we will get the badge to you, so you can post it on your blog! 

That's about it for today! We sure hope you have been inspired to get some Father's projects going. They do not have to be for Father's Day. It could just be a layout about your Dad (or the father of your kids) or a card for his birthday. I'm sure you will think of tons of things! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

June 8th sketch and Introducing 2 new designers

Yay! It's Friday! Sandi posting here today and omigosh, we LOVE our Fridays! First of all, it marks the beginning of the weekend for most and it is also Reveal day! And this is a big one with lots of news! 

This week we are back to sketches. We've had lots of requests for multi-pic layouts, so we are trying to accommodate your wishes.  I think this is a fun little sketch that you will enjoy designed by one of our co-leaders, me! Hope you like it! 

Now, before we show you what the design team has done with the sketch, we are excited to announce 2 new designers to Stuck on U Sketches. First up, we have Tracey Gregory joining us and we are so excited about what she will bring to the team. You can visit her blog at Lifetime of Pages. Here is a bit about Tracey in her own words. 

"Hi all-My name is Tracey and I am a Christian,40-something wife to Gary,
 mother to sons Hayden (20), Austin (18), step-son lukas (14), daughter Naomi (12) and my spoiled Yorkshire Terrier, Honey (4 y).I am currently also on the Design Team for Flying Unicorn's Enchanting Creations magazine.I am an RN in long term care and consider myself lucky to have the blessing of listening to hundreds of personal stories, each a little glimpse into history. Like most of you, I have a scrapbooking addiction.
I am excited to be on the sketch team and look forward to fun and new friends!
Welcome, Tracey! 
Next, we are so seriously over the moon that our own Jane Stirling is returning to the team. Jane recently moved back to her beloved Scotland and had to put her scrappy tools away for awhile. As soon as she started posting to her blog again, we knew it was time to get her back on board! You can visit her blog at Scossie Jane. Welcome back, Jane! 

Okay, I'm ready to see what the team has done with the sketch, aren't you? And we will be excited to see your projects as well. Don't forget that you will have 2 weeks to upload your projects for a chance to be among our Top 3!

Alrighty, before we leave you today, we need to announce our Top 3 project from the May 18th Fruit Die Cut Challenge. And oh my goodness, it was so hard to choose just 3 but here they are! Congrats, ladies! Please leave a comment with your email addy so that I can send you your Top 3 button for your blog. 

One last thing! Don't forget that in July we will be introducing Card sketches on the First and Third Wednesdays of the month. We are getting our team together but there is still one more week to get in your application if you are interested.  Check out this Post if you are interested. We may add another Die Cut designer as well. 

Have a great weekend!
