Sketch N Scrap Update for November 2nd.

Good morning Sketch N Scrap friends!!  We have been offering FREE sketches for both cards and layouts now for ALMOST 8 years!!  We have enjoyed the ride for sure, however, as you can imagine offering this free service does take a lot of work and effort on the part of our owner, sketch artists and design team.....therefore we do on occasion evaluate how best to use our time as we all have other commitments such as work, family and other hobbies (as we know you do.)  So upon recent evaluation of our guidelines and rules we have made some changes to allow our team to focus  on continuing to bring free content to inspire you!!  These changes are minor but will allow us to spend less time on the administrative behind the scenes things none of us like.  
Here are the changes you will notice moving forward AS OF NOVEMBER 2nd:
1) We will NO LONGER allow you to link up using photo sharing websites, such as Flickr or Photobucket.  These sites do not allow us to use the images of your projects in picking our Featured Scrappers or Card makers.  They also require our DT to have an account to comment or in some instances to view your project.  They also do not allow your work to be seen by our other followers or participants that do not have an account. There are many websites you are already a member of that you can use to link up your projects if you do not have a blog: these include: craft galleries such as A Cherry On Top,, Splitcoastampers etc.  **Please keep in mind that we recommend you look up each galleries individual rules & follow them closely** You may also link up using your Facebook or your Instagram accounts.  Please note we that if you Instagram account is private you will not be able to use your account in this manner. 
2) As of November 2nd we will only allow ONE entry per person per sketch.  This is being done to prevent unfair advantages of those who might mass produce their work to gain extra entries.  We offer FOUR sketches on our blog each month and sometimes on special months even more are offered.  We also offer FOUR monthly throwback sketches for your to use on our Facebook Monthly Challenges group, where you are welcome to earn entries for a prize as well. To join our Facebook Group go HERE.  And of course, ALL our past sketches are available to you at ANY time you just cannot use them to gain entries for our monthly prize. 
If you are having issues linking up or need more directions on our rules make sure and click on the guidelines tab at the top of our blog which will give more specifics.  We are happy to answer general  questions or give further assistance if you email us at BUT we cannot walk you through the link up process step by step...please refer to our guidelines OR possibly look on You Tube or the Inlinkz website for further assistance. 
Thank you for your support of Sketch N Scrap!!  We appreciate your assistance in keeping Sketch N Scrap FREE of cost so we can inspire you for many more years to come!!
Happy creating!!
