Welcome & Design Team Call UPDATED

Update:  Hello ladies I have updated the close date for the DT call.  The new close date is Feb 10th, please note this change.

Hello everyone and welcome to Lets Get Sketchy, a brand new sketch site!   As scrappers we all LOVE sketches, it takes a lot of the pain out of scrapping!  So I have decided to create a sketch site for that purpose and need your help.

To get started I am looking for a few talented and creative scrappers to be on my design team.  If you like sketches then this is the site for you!  I am looking for a design team AND and sketch team.  Your terms would run March 1st through Sept. 1st.   The design team would be asked to complete 2 layouts per month from a given sketch and the sketch team would only be asked to create newly sketches for Lets Get Sketchy. 

If you are interested and would like to be considered for a position then here is what you need to do:

1.  Create a layout from the sketch below
2.  Post about the DT call on your blog along with your layout from the sketch
3.  Leave a comment below telling me that you would like to be considered for a position and which position you are applying for.  Make sure you include the link to your blog where your layout is and your email address.
4.  Become a new follower and spread the word about the sketch blog!
No previous DT experience needed to apply.  Call will be open until Feb.10th and announcement made Feb 11th.  The first challenge will go live March 1st!
I can't wait to see what you come up with!  International members ARE welcome to apply!

Call sketch:

*What do we ask of our Designers?
Two projects per month – our challenges go live the 1st and 15th of each month.
Promote Let’s Get Sketchy wherever possible, for example on your personal blog, online communities.
Commit to a six month term with the possibility of extending this for another term.
Leave comments on all challenge entries <- this is super important and will be monitored

**What do our Designers get in return?
The gratification of showcasing your talent for all to see and be on the ground breaking floor of a new sketch site.  Designers will have a permanent link to their blog (or homepage) on our site.

  5. Hi! I'm interested in becoming part of your sketch team or design team. This would be the 1st time I'd be part of a sketch challenge blog as designer or officially carry the title sketch design team.

    I would like to know the frequency of sketches your sketch designer needs to submit in a month. Is it once or twice a month, or once every quarter depending on the number of sketch designers you would have?

    here's the link to a newly created sketch i created for another site I'm designing for:

    I work with rectangles, squares and circles primarily with my sketches as I don't use Adobe PSE.

    Hoping to be able to create using the DT Call sketch too to try out for the design team also. =)

  6. i love love sketches and can't wait til the first challenge goes live!

  7. Hi Kathleen, you would be provided a sketch twice a month to work from. The challenges will post the 1st and 15th of each month. As a DT member you would be required to have your layout due to me for upload by the 25th and 10th of the prior month. So for instance, if the challenge goes live March 1st, your layout would be due to me Feb 25th:-)

  9. I have blogged about this on my blog

  51. Hi! My name is Steffanie and I would love to be considered for your Design Team. I just stumbled upon your site this week---lucky me! I have been scrapping for over 12 years and really, truly enjoy it. I prefer to work with sketches on nearly every layout I create. I seem to need them as a jumping off point but can't draw them to save my life! My entry layout for your DT call is here:

  53. What a fabulous opportunity. I LOVE sketches! I am a shabby chic scrapper who has been scrapping for 40 years. Yep ever since I was ten. (well actually, I guess that means over forty then. LOL) I love to scrapbook our life story, most recently the joys of grandchildren. I have not dabbled into digi scrapping yet because I love the 3d look that I get from paper and embellishments. I have more scrapbook supplies than you even want to know. I also don't design my own sketches but look to others with that talent to help me out. I appreciate this opportunity to share with you some of my recent creations. Check them out on my blog here
    They are scattered in between a few of our memorable activities.
    You can reach me for further questions at

  65. Hi!
    I would like to apply for the design team as I've always loved creating with sketches! For me, sketches are like the blueprint of a building and are especially useful when I'm feeling creatively challenged.
    I'm from Singapore, a sunny little island just south of the equator and I first started scrapbooking (casually) in 2006, but only started doing it more seriously in 2011.
    My take on the design team call sketch is on my blog at Hope you like it and thanks for the chance to apply for the team!

    I've followed this blog through my other email address,, which is where you can reach me as well!

  66. Hi

    I would like to be considered for the design team (not sketch one) and I have posted on my blog.

    I would love to become part of this team as I have never been on a DT before and would love the opportunity to show what I can do.

    Thanks for your time.
