I've been scrapping for about 11 years and I've always enjoyed creating bold and unique designs. I'd love to inspire you to create eye catching pages and cards. What I love about cut files is that you can simply add to your page as is, or dress up with pattern papers, paints, inks and embellishments - you can really make it your own - just let your imagination soar.

Hello there!

It's is mid month and things are getting exciting for many of us as we plan for our various celebrations!  Loads of kiddies are anxious for winter(or for some of you summer) break and adults are getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season.  My youngest is looking forward to some time in the snow that arrived yesterday, and I am looking forward to a few quiet afternoons at my craft desk! I hope you all remember to take a bit of time for yourself and do something that makes you happy!  And if that is crafting, like me, I hope you spend a little time with us and join in on our newest challenge!

A big thank you goes out to The ScrapRoom, for sponsoring this challenge, they are offering a $20.00 gift certificate to their online store to one lucky participant!

I will let Karen tell you a bit about herself....


"Hi! My name is Karen Brierley, and I live in a semi-rural area in South East Queensland (Australia) with my husband and teenage daughter. We live on bush acreage with our dog, and an assortment of chickens, ducks and Australian wildlife. I enjoy sharing my scrapping creations online with like-minded people, and I was so excited to be invited to be a guest designer at Stuck?! Sketches. I love using sketches as the starting point for my layouts, although I often wander off in a totally different direction! I favour simple, linear designs and strong colour combinations, My favourite tool is my sewing machine. I'd love you to visit my blog at beingkaren.blogspot.com "

Here is Karen's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Karen!
