May: Stack-a-holic Template Challenge


*To be entered in our weekly stack giveaways, leave a comment on each blog post throughout the week. Leave me a comment each time you share our blog post on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest! Winners will be chosen at random from comments from the entire week combined. 
4 entries per post per person*


Ooohhh another month is here! I love it when it's time to post our monthly challenge! I love this month's sketches SO much! Are you ready?? If you haven't played with us before here's the deal. Create a layout based on the given template using one of our many stacks! Submit your page by May 30th by either emailing it to me {erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com}, posting a photo of it on our DCWV Facebook Page or by posting it on your blog and sending me a link. 

This month our sketches come from an awesome site for sketches, Sketches by Jana Eubank! Thank you for allowing me to use your sketches this month! I love how organized her site is :) 

Here is your layout template for May!



For my layout, I used the "My Favorite Things" Stack which is at Michaels right now. I love the colors in it, especially the black and white papers that match my cute, new doggy, Foxy!


I love this color combination. Raspberry, mint & black. So fresh and fun!


Love my May Arts ribbon


Are you ready to see May's card challenge?? 


How cute is the chevron print in the background!! Love it!


For this one I used the "Girl Power Stack" which is also at Michaels right now. I love the colors in this stack too, such great summer, girly prints!


For the chevron/zig zag, you could either hand cut it, paper piece or use an electronic cutting machine or SVG like I did. For the flower, I used the 3D Flower kit from SVG Attic and my new stamps are from Unity Stamp Company

I can't wait to see what you guys create with these sketches!! You are always impressing me so much :)


Another fun thing today! To help Xyron celebrate their ever-growing fan base on Facebook, we wanted to give away one of their time-saving adhesive runners with a stack of our paper!  Just go to their Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/xyroninc), and let them know we sent you, and then leave a comment on our blog when you are done.  We’ll pick 4 winners next Tuesday!

Have a wonderful Friday! And I have a surprise GIVEAWAY tomorrow for National Scrapbook Day so be sure to come to the blog tomorrow!
