Do You Want To Be A Guest Designer For Nikki Sivils?

We are going to run a contest this month for a guest designer spot!  The rules are pretty simple.  Just do a layout or card based on the sketches below, and we'll pick a winner from the submissions.


I asked the lovely Anam Stubbington to provide us with a couple of her amazing sketches.  Anam does sketches for manufacturers such as Prima Marketing and My Mind's Eye.  She also started a sketch blog called Twisted Sketches. You can read more about Anam on her blog A Little of My Life.  Below is her sketches and her take on the sketches she is providing us for our contest.  The rules are simple.  Use at least 80% of Nikki's product on your work.  You can rotate the sketch, use single photos or more, but just keep it where we can see that you used the sketch. Goodluck everyone!  Just give us a link to your layouts or cards in the comments section of this post for your chance to win!  The winner will be announced June 1st.

Anam's Wonderful Examples





The Card Sketch

Anam's Example for the Card Sketch



Ok, now!  Show us what you can do with Nikki's adorable papers and products!  Again, goodluck to all of you!

Can we submit a card and a layout or should we only submit one project?

Susan Dupre said...

Heather, you can do both if you wish. :)

Heather said...

Awesome! Thanks Susan!
