Is there a sketch challenge challenge?
 
I just started doing the sketch challenges a couple of months ago, but I am challenging myself to go back and start with #1 and work my way up...in addition to doing the current ones. Anyone else doing this?

I was thinking about it - but I was going to start from the top and work my way back down to nlumber 1.

Lots of players do this and the challenges are always open. I know players that started at one and worked up to the present challenge...they have lots of energy!

Go for it!

MichelleGoodrich 05-22-2007 06:59 PM

I'm just trying to work my way through them. I check each one off, like the little listmaker I am, whenever I get it done. Still, I AM trying to do better and get the new ones done near the week they come out!

mhdonahue 05-26-2007 12:31 PM

I am doing this. I am loving it! It's so fun to get so many ideas!

nabush 06-30-2007 11:13 AM

I've made it through 10 so far!! Woohoo!!

Nancy

nabush 07-02-2007 02:19 PM

Finished 11 and 12!! Sorry, I know that no one else probably cares, but I have very limited stamping time!!

I think I"ll play too!

I started doing the SC's before I knew about this thread. I've only done 8 so far, but want to work my way to current. I'm afraid if I do the current ones first, I'll never go back. Not that it matters, but I really think that my stamping will improve by using these challenges. I can't always do the color challenges, the technique challenges, etc, but the sketches don't require special stuff. I'm a very simple stamper, but really enjoy the sketches.

Debi_D 07-03-2007 07:55 AM

I'm fairly new to SCS so I'm going back and doing them all too. Problem is, there are some I think are so cute and have kewl ideas for the moment I see them that I can't seem to go in order! LOL...so I just try to keep up with the current challange and mark the others off as I go.

I was feeling that way, too, but my obsessive personality took over, and now I have to do them in order. I'm finding that I have a lot of ideas that I didn't know were lurking in there!!

I never view the other challenge cards before I make one...anyone else do that? I'm afraid I will be influenced by someone's card...

I'm actually making a sketch album -- although I am jumping around. I usually try to pick a new sketch for the other challenges during the week and make just the card front so I can put it into my album. It may take me forever, but I'm plugging away!

NZPaula 07-03-2007 04:53 PM

Can someone send me a link to these sketch challenges, as I love doing these and looking for something to scrap tomorrow.

Click on the link in my signature and you'll find the master thread for the Card Sketches challenge. Read at the top of the first post in the thread and it'll tell what post you can find certian files in.

nabush 07-05-2007 02:55 PM

Any other challengers out there? How is it going? I took a couple of days off and I am trying to stay current with the sketch challenges. Hopefully tonight I will get some stamping done...I already have an idea for SC14...

Take care everyone, and check in if you can!

Nancy

kamuelamom 07-06-2007 12:28 AM

This is on my to-do list as well.;)

nabush 07-06-2007 02:05 PM

I needed a card in a pinch, so I picked up the SC14, and I did it!! It's like killing two birds with one stone!!

Nancy

cardscrapperk 07-08-2007 11:30 AM

This sounds like a great idea! I agree doing these sketches will only improve our abilities! I did my first one this week, CS131, and really enjoyed it. I'm going to try and do them all as well!:)

Good for you!! It really does spark your creativity...I always need a little boost with the layout anyway! Keep us posted with how you are doing!!

Nancy

bluelemon 07-10-2007 12:17 AM

I have printed them all out and when I have no ideas in my head, I grab the pile and pick a layout. Bit by bit I will get through them.. :)

That is an awesome idea...and it takes some of the guess work out of things!

Nancy

Granna 07-10-2007 12:11 PM

Yeah, I've been thinking about trying to do all of the challenges - let's see, I think that would be 725, including the Featured Stamper! Erm, mebbe I won't:-)

So maybe I should just play with y'all and do the sketch challenges. I'll check the list and start on one this evening. Whoo hoo, I'm playing with SCS'rs!! I feel so moved, touched, loved and accepted - sniffle.

Granna 07-10-2007 12:13 PM

OK, I'm gonna' do SC129. I skipped it when it came up because it has a circle, and I don't like to do circles - but I'm gonna' bite the bullet and do it!

That's a great idea!!! A nice pretty way to keep all the sketches handy! :)

nabush 07-25-2007 04:28 PM

I've made it up to 21, and I am trying to keep up with the current challenges!

Nancy

nabush 08-01-2007 09:50 AM

I've caught up a bit, and I have now done 22-27, and they are uploaded in my gallery!

Nancy

Turkey1969 08-01-2007 03:30 PM

Can't wait to see what you've done!

nabush 08-26-2007 12:21 PM

I just uploaded nine cards...now done up through SC35!!! Woohoo!

Nancy

Turkey1969 08-26-2007 02:04 PM

Wondered where you have been... I'm still working - just skipped a few so I got out of order.

cardscrapperk 08-26-2007 02:15 PM

I'm also hoping to work my way through all of the card sketches, though it's been slow. I've probably done about 15 or so, in random order. I'm a scrapper first and stamper second. I've just recently ramped up with my scrapbooking, but just about every time I need to make a card I try to use one of the sketches! My goal is to try and make at least 2-3 cards per week. We'll see...

nabush 08-27-2007 06:40 AM

Glad to see there are others out there still plugging away!!

Nancy

nabush 09-04-2007 05:34 PM

Anyone else have any updates? I am moving along again...just finished 39. Now, I am so obsessed that I have to go in order!! YIKES!

Nancy

artbyamandaj 09-04-2007 05:47 PM

I'm wanting to go back and do all the sketch challenges, as well! Can't start until I get this dang room organized! I've got to get all my stuff ready for a baby/children's sale, then the rest for a garage sale.....gotta get everything ready for my group's open house this weekend and gotta get ready to go to Disney World (Woo Hoo!!!) in two weeks.......
Maybe when all that's over I"ll find time! ;)

Turkey1969 09-04-2007 06:03 PM

still plugging away... Although I am not necessarily going in order like when I started, I refuse to go on to the next page until I have done the first 48.
I printed the pdf pics of the sketches 4 sheets on one page. It made them kinda small, but I got the first 48 all on one page. I haven't even looked at the next 'page' yet.

nabush 09-05-2007 07:19 PM

I'm so excited that there are other crazy ladies out there like me!! I made it all the way to 43 tonight...I went to a crop and just worked on cards! I'll have to post them tomorrow!

Nancy

nabush 09-14-2007 12:19 PM

Ok...I've been on a roll...I just uploaded 45, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 122, and
137. I know...I went out of order!!

Nancy

nabush 11-05-2007 11:09 AM

It's been almost 2 months since I resurrected this thread...I am up to about 70...I stalled out for a few weeks, but I just uploaded 5 new ones. What are the rest of you up to?

Nancy

cmoore2cats 11-06-2007 09:10 AM

Just Starting
 
I've just printed out all the challenges and intend to use it when my muse deserts me. I only just discovered where this thread is and what to do with it. Whee! More fodder for the muse.

It is totally addictive...watch out!

Turkey1969 11-07-2007 06:56 PM

Keep plodding along - you are my inspiration! I kinda got stalled.... I started working on a dozen coaster calendars for Christmas presents and that has taken up most of my time. Next on my list is a cross-stitch gift for my brother, THEN, back to stamping the sketches!
