Recently, I have been working on a project that will benefit not only myself but hopefully all of my readers! If you have ever experienced "scrapper's block," then you will most certainly want to stay tuned this week!
In order to make my blog not only a gallery of my own work but also a helpful resource for you, I have compiled a list of several blogs and websites that issue challenges on a specific day of the week. Today I will list the sites I've found that upload challenges/sketches/new techniques on Mondays--tomorrow I'll list the sites for Tuesdays, and so on.
***Many of these sites have copyrights, so if you are inspired by any sketches or challenges (and I hope you are) and if you share your work on your blog or other public gallery, please give credit to the site which inspired you.***
So, without further ado, here are helpful Monday sites:
  • How Much is Too Much? Challenges are issued every other Monday, and everyone is welcomed to join. This blog is designed to help you create wonderful layouts and use up your stash while doing it.
  • Color Combos Galore Every Monday a new challenge is issued to use a certain color combination on a layout. If your entries are uploaded to their gallery before the following Sunday at 11:59 p.m., you will be entered for a monthly drawing.
  • 2 Sketches 4 You Each Monday a sketch is offered to help you create beautiful cards.
  • Mojo Monday Lost your mojo? A card sketch is issued every Monday. Get out your stamps for this one! There is a monthly contest as well.
  • Papertake Weekly A new sketch each week. Use it to make cards, LO's, ATC's, or...anything!
  • Make A Card Monday Kristina Werner, over at K Werner Designs, makes a cute and simple card every Monday. She not only has the picture of it, but she also does a video so you can watch step-by-step how it's made. You will see more of her throughout the week.
  • Mothers and Daughters Creations A scrapbook-related challenge is issued every Monday. Sometimes it's a sketch, sometimes it's a theme. There are prizes up for grabs if you play along!
  • Sketch and Stash Challenge This is a brand new challenge site! Every 2 weeks, they will issue a new sketch, and you are challenged to use your newest 'stash' to complete it.
  • Sketches! {by Tamara} Every Monday Tamara releases a new sketch for a layout. She has various challenges and sketches throughout the week, so we'll be seeing her again!
Please leave a comment if you have a favorite site for sketches and/or challenges, or if you have any trouble with the links.
Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful Monday, and I hope you find some of these sites helpful for inspiration. I'll see you back tomorrow with more resources! :)
