September Stack-a-holic Challenge!

Hey friends!

I know I am a little behind this month but better late than never right?! Can't wait to PLAY this month with our 
Stack-a-holic Template Challenge!

I will give you the template...you make the page. Share it on our Facebook page, share it on your blog and send a link or email it to me at erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com. You have until September 29th to submit your page. I will pick my "Top 10" submissions to share on the blog and I will  pick a random winner from those 10 for an awesome prize of three of our newest stacks! Wanna play??!

Here is your template from Susan at Sketch Savvy!

This month I played with one of our new Recollections Stacks at Michaels! Have you seen them in your stores yet? They should be there!! LOVE this new Simply Autumn Stack!

I wanted to do a page showing off a photo of the first day of school for my little guy! The sketch called for a 4x6 photo but since there was only one photo, I wanted to do a bigger one so I did a 5x7 photo. I think it fit the page well. 

This is a GREAT layout to use your matstacks because of the smaller size! Or some stack scraps would work great too :)

In the Simply Autumn Stack, there are some great pages in the stack that have scaled down 6x6 pieces all on one 12x12 page. This is the page I used for my layout. So I got all of my little 1 inch by 2 inch rectangles from this one page! Pretty cool, right?!

I love this sketch and how the page turned out! It may be one of my favorites so far :)

Remember, you have until September 29th to get me your finished pages! 

Check out Sketch Savvy for even more sketches! 
I'll be back SOON with a darling Halloween project!! Love this time of year :)

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  19. Hi Erin, I not only LOVED the sketch, but DCWV paper is my one and ONLY company I turn to for the MOST beautiful, best value paper pad collections. I used The Lace & Linen Stack for mine. Your layout is terrific and your little guy should only have that smile follow him throughout his school years!!!
    Thanks for the sketch challenge, this one came from the heart when I created it and with Cancer Awareness month in Oct., I hope you can appreciate the thought behind this lay out.
    Please go to my blog and see the page I put together. Thanks again,
