March Fussy Cut and Sketch Challenge

Hello Krafters!

Is it just me or does the year seem to be flying by?
Here we are sharing the March challenge already and it feels as though we have  just put our Christmas trees away and Easter is just around the corner!  Eek!

Before we reveal the challenge we must inform you
that we are no longer issuing a separate special prize just for a card/tag entry
you are still eligible to win a prize with a card/ tag entry.
(just like before) 

So we hope to still see lots of cards/tags entries 
along with digital, art journaling, project life, travelers notebooks etc.. 
even paper bags! As long as it is on Kraft and Kraft is the hero background. :) 

For the March challenge we want you to 
get out your craft knives or scissors and do some fussy cutting
and also to be inspired by the sketch below.

*Edited to add*
I've had a few questions in regards to the fussy cut side of the challenge and if punches and cut files count.
Sorry.. but no... they don't make the "cut"
Scissors and craft knives only.
For voting reasons please let us know what was fussy cut on your entry.
For digital scrappers... digital "cutting" tools are accepted.. but please let us know what you digitally "cut"
I hope that clears up any questions.
So get snip snip snipping.. we can't wait to see what you create.

We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layout, cards, digital layouts, art journaling and tags etc. but please remember that it is all about the Kraft!!

Your work MUST be on a KRAFT BACKGROUND (not merely mounted on Kraft) to be eligible.

**Please take the time to read the RULES before submitting your entry**
and upload your entry via the inlinkz section in our side bar.

(Due date: Midnight March 31st) 


The K+ girls have created up a storm this month and we just love how the girls have used the same sketch, yet each and every creation is different and totally inspiring.

How will YOU interpret the sketch?

International Guest Designer

We are delighted to introduce our

Please welcome back the super talented 

Jenny Niemann Gefaller
(from the USA) 

Jenny is a digital scrapper .. here is what she says about "fussy cutting" on a digital layout. 

"Not being a paper scrapper, I had no idea what "fussy cutting" was. Hello Pinterest!! I found some gorgeous pages! Then I used several techniques to duplicate this idea digitally. I hope it fits the criteria. It was a challenge, but oh so fun!!"
It certainly DOES fit the challenge Jenny! Brilliant!
