June 15 2017 Challenge Featured Layout #2

Hello! Today we're sharing another featured layout based on our June 15th sketch. But before we show you today's inspiration, we want to recognize our sponsors for this challenge.

A big thank you goes out to ScrapMatts. They are offering two large pieces of chipboard to one lucky participant for this challenge.
 ScrapMatts is a place to learn, share ideas and view some great design concepts, while offering Australian Made, Laser Cut Chipboard, original shapes and designs, made to compliment your scrapbooking pages or your card making projects

AND thank you to Lindy's Stamp Gang, who is sponsoring this challenge with a $25.00 gift certificate to their online shop for a second lucky participant.

Lindy's luscious luster is all uniquely two-toned! With vibrant shimmery sprays, flat sprays, vintage sprays, embossing powder and lots more! Lindy’s Stamp Gang is the creative” baby” of Lindy Plakinger. She passed away in 2008 after bravely battling illness. She was a self-made cartoonist, loved drawing, crafting, designing new products, and creating her funny cartoon characters! One of her greatest joys was traveling to stamping and scrapbooking conventions across the US, demo-ing to her heart’s content with her sister, and giggle partner, Vicki! Lindy’s Stamp Gang will continue, as was her hope, and dream. Her husband and daughter have taken over the company keeping her creativity alive. Tracey, (her daughter), has always been a “jar filler” in the background of Lindy’s Stamp Gang, but is now trying to fill some incredible shoes! 
For more Lindy’s Stamp Gang please visit: 

Priti is our featured artist today. What a sweet family photo! She has done such a great job of matching her papers and embellishments to its colors. And how cute is that jar full of love.


We are so glad you joined us, Priti. Please grab our "featured" button below and wear it on your blog.
Here's another look at the sketch:

Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....


As always we have a guest designer joining us. Please help us welcome Heather Bensley  to our June 15th challenge!!


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

"Hi, I am thrilled to be the guest designer for this month at Stuck?! Challenge. I live in the beautiful North East of Victoria in the city of Wodonga. I started scrapping 14 years ago after the birth of my first grandchild. I wasn't looking for a new craft but this was thrust upon me with the desire to record all the aspects of this new little person in our lives. And so with a total now of five delightful grandchildren, who never cease to amaze and astound me, I am never short of inspiration. Although these five little superstars are my main focus, I also have a husband and three daughters and son-in-laws who sometimes get a look in on a page. I hope you enjoy my page and maybe get some inspiration from it."

Here is Heather's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Heather, we love your page - the masking and embellishing are so beautiful!!

Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....

I have been on few DTs since then, but now on only one DT called “Simple à Souhait”; a French Canadian Stamps company and I have taught classes too and I really enjoy teaching. My children are for sure my main inspiration. I love playing with inks, I really love badges too, there is badges on almost all my projects! I make cards too and love coloring with Copic..
