More Challenge Sites

Today I'm adding more sites for challenges. Eventually my goal is to have them organized with links in my sidebar to make it even easier, but until I have the opportunity to do that, you can always find them all in one place by clicking on the 'Sketches and Challenges' category in the sidebar. Here are more sites worth visiting:
  • SoCal Scrap--Not just a single challenge site but a whole forum made just for challenges. Pick your favorite and jump on in!
  • No 8 Wired-The NZ Dare Blog--These dares are usually more 'outside of the box.' From Haiku to fuzzy embellishments, you're sure to find a dare you haven't tried before.
  • Scrapdragons--Challenges are offered on the 1st and 15th, but they haven't updated since November so I don't know if they're still playing. But, assuming they are and life just got too busy for a time to keep up with the blog, the design team is amazing!
  • Caardvarks--A card challenge site with really great examples on it.
  • Whimsical Scraps and Bugs--A biweekly challenge site geared towards those with a Cricut. I'm excited to be one of their new design team members!
  • Okieladybug's Scrap N' More--Okieladybug is a member of the Cricut message board, and she is a master of Design Studio. I don't have the software, but for those who might, she is kind enough to share several .cut files on her blog. Additionally, she hosts challenges frequently on her blog.
  • Scraps-N-Such--This is another forum that has areas for everything from scrapbooking to stamping to challenges. I have not personally checked it out, but it may be a helpful resource.
  • Scrapbook & Cards Today--Very user friendly site--because it's well organized. They post on the following schedule: Design Challenge Monday, 3 T's Tuesday (tips, trips, techniques) Design Team Project Wednesday, Reader Submission Thursday, Freebie Friday, Sketchy Saturday, Sneak Peak Saturday. You can also see various sketches by clicking on the link on the left sidebar.
Thanks for looking!
