Our May Sketch challenge has been extended! We’re giving you the entire month to play along with the sketch. It feels like May just flew by with the end of the school year & summer is approaching so we wanted to give everyone time to participate. And we’ve made the prize even better 😉
Today I played along with Freckled Fawn’s new sketch challenge for April. I love challenges: they take a whole lot of guess work into designing a layout AND it gives you an opportunity to use your fabulous kits!
Using those fabulous transparent frames, I highlighted the verse I wanted focus on, Isiah 52:1.
I then printed out my daffodil out on transparency paper. It makes the whole layout a little less heavy with a see through picture of this type, in my humble opinion.
I then used those fabulous purple velum letters from the April Kit along with the foiled cork stars! I added a few more sentiments from the chipboard pieces and colored the black and white camera for added pizzazz on the page as well as fulfilling on the sketch layout description.
I hope you guys participate in this challenge. Freebies are always a plus but…. having fun while creating are the sprinkles on the cupcake icing!
Hey there lovelies! Today is a big day here at Freckled Fawn.
We’re kicking off our brand new monthly sketch challenge!! We had such a great response to our birthday bash challenges that we decided to keep ’em. (We will be launching another awesome challenge on the 15th, so be watching for that too!!)
Here’s the April sketch. Use it as is, rotate it, flip it, etc. A free printable download is available below the sketch image!
Jen created a lovely traditional scrapbook layout.
Kim created a lovely bible journaling spread.
The FF Sketch Challenge will run from the 2nd of the month through the 1st of the following month.
Of course we would love to see you using Freckled Fawn products, but feel free to use whatever products you have on hand.
The challenge will close on May 1st at 11PM MST. A winner and top 3 will be announced on May 2nd. We will be picking a prize winner at random & we will also be showcasing some of our favorite project entries.

Doe here with a super fun challenge and sketch. Before we get to this week’s Sketch+ Challenge. It’s time to announce our winner from last week!
Big congrats to Kelly Sroka! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get your prize sent out.
Alright. Now’s the time to pull out that huge stash of washi tape; you know that plastic bin you have hidden in your bedroom closet. I know you all have some ;). This is a safe space, no judgement. It’s okay to be addicted to washi. I LOVE washi!! All the pattern options and the ease of using it. It’s perfection.
The challenge today is to use your washi to make a large shape that will work as your crafty background. You can do this on a layout, on a card, etc.
Step One : Pull out some coordinating washi rolls. You can coordinate by color or pattern. Then, on your layout, lightly trace a large shape (heart, star, square, etc).
Step Two : Use your washi rolls to fill in the shape you’ve traced. You can use scissors to cut the edges or even a credit card (see tutorial HERE). Or, to make it even easier, you can cut out the shape after you’ve finished and then just glue the shape onto a new layout.
Step Three : Add photos, embellishments, and journaling! I haven’t done my journaling yet because it’s TOP SECRET! And I didn’t want to photograph it hehe.
I loved seeing everyone’s creations who participated last week. And I can’t wait to see what you guys do with your washi tape this week! Project entries are due by Wednesday Feb 15th at 9PM MST. Check back Thursday for another fun challenge & to see who won!

To kick off the fun, lovely Megan has a challenge for you! All month long on Thursdays we are going to have new challenges for you. We’re calling our challenges Sketch+ because they are sketches with a twist. ~Sami
Hello everyone! It’s Megan here with a challenge for you!
Here’s the challenge:

I used embellishments as bullets for a list of books I read! I like to track the books I read each month with a monthly reads page. For this page, I just printed off an 8.5×11 photo and embellished to complete the page!
I combined old and new Freckled Fawn products, using older alphas and a new chipboard flower sticker from the February kit for my title and a list using new resin hearts and older Freckled Fawn labels from my stash.
I also used embellishments as journaling bullets for two 6×12 insert pages about my kids’ dance classes for a pocket scrapbooking spread.
I’d love to see what creative ways you come up with for this week’s Sketch+ Challenge!
Project entries are due by Wednesday Feb 8th at 9PM MST. Check back Thursday for another fun challenge & to see who won!
