More May 1st Projects + Meet Our May Sponsors

We are really excited to introduce two brand new sponsors for the month of May.  

First up is an amazing Australian store called Seriously Scrapbooking

which is owned by Jane Trezenga.

 Jane is not only the owner of Seriously Scrapbooking but is also the design team leader and owner for Imaginarium Designs . Imaginarium designs is a new chipboard company founded in 2010. It is the combined collaboration of  a Mother and Son who both work in the paper craft industry.
 You can visit their blog  here  for inspiration and to see what the design team has been up to. 

Our very own design team members Steph Devlin and Heather Jacob are also on the Imaginarium Designs team!!

 Imaginarium Designs have so generously offered to sponsor a major prize every month for a whole YEAR! WOW! How amazing is that? They have also sponsored our very own Design Team and we have all just received our goodies so you will see a lot of this wonderful chipboard on our layouts in the coming months !!

SO this is what the winner of our current challenge will receive this time, and what future winners will also receive....a pack of their latest and most popular chipboard. The best thing about this, is that the pack will be different each month and will be customised to fit the winners needs. So if you have girls, you will be sent girly chipboard etc. 

WELCOME Jane and Imaginarium Designs to our team at Once Upon A...Sketch!

We invited Jane to design for us this month and well..she didn't disappoint. Here is Jane's layout based on our current challenge

**All chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs

Jane is on the Graphic 45 Design Team for 2011. She regularly teaches 10-15 classes a month in her own store as well as teaching at Printblocks for store owners/teacher.  She loves sharing her passion for scrapbooking with everybody. She will be teaching in Brisbane at the Scrapbooking &  Papercraft  expo & convention in the June long weekend.  Her work has been published in Australia and America
Next up we have our second sponsor for the month of May, who this time will sponsor the random prize, which will be $US10.00 to spend at the store. So please welcome...

At we are committed to bringing you the best products out there.  We carry brands that are hard to find and we love to support the smaller manufacturers.  We offer low shipping rates and FREE shipping on qualifying offers. Our blog is updated daily with tips, techniques and inspiration posted by our amazing Design Team (including our very own Bente Fagerberg!)

We also invited the Design Team from Your Scrapbook Stash to be our Guests this month, and here is some further inspiration for you from the talented girls on the Design Team using our current sketch and journalling criteria..THANK YOU ladies for your outstanding projects using materials from Your Scrapbook Stash

and of course our very own Bente Fagerberg who is a team member at Your Scrapbook Stash

This wonderful sponsor is also giving you ONE more way to win ...a pretty easy one. Just head on over to their blog HERE and leave a comment with a link to your project completed using the current sketch and criteria and you could win some stash! You need to leave a comment on this post.

There you have it...AMAZING WORK ladies!
