Today is a very exciting day!
Myself and the lovely Monica Gale are launching the You Can Create It! Monthly Challenge in the UK!
Each month we will send you a little Mystery Kit containing a few Stampin' Up! supplies. The Challenge is for you to use those products to create a project. It could be a card, scrapbook page or any kind of 3D item.
You must use at least a part of everything we provide in the kit when you create your project. If you wish to, you can also add additional items from your own supplies.
When you have finished your project, if you take a photo of it and send it to us .... we will showcase it on one of our blogs on the 1st day of the following month - along side our own creations for that month.
If you have a Facebook Page or if you Blog yourself, you can display it there with a link back to us if you wish to :o)
Would you like to join us each month and play along?
The cost of one kit for one month is £2.50. Or you can subscribe for 6 months worth of kits for the reduced cost of £12.00 (postage and packing has already been included in the above prices).
The closing date for ordering this month's kit is Tuesday 10th March.
March's kit will be sent out on Monday 16th March. You will have until Saturday 28th March to complete your project and send us a photo of it (optional).
If you would like to join us please Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will send you details of how to pay.
Monica and I both played along with last month's challenge.
This is the February kit we got to play with .......
What would YOU have made with this little kit?
This is what I created .......
It's a little gift box measuring approximately 6.5cm (2 1/2") square and 2cm high.
I cut the Elegant Eggplant card to 10.5cm x 10.5cm and scored it on all sides at 2cm. This formed the base of the box.
I cut the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP to 9.7cm x 9.7cm and coloured it with Perfect Plum ink using a Sponge. I then scored it on all sides at 1.5cm. Before making up the lid, I used the 3/4" Circle punch to notch two of the sides to make taking the lid of a little easier.
I stamped the 2 1/2" White circle in the kit using the Painted Petals stamp set. This was layered onto the Perfect Plum card and I cut around it by hand to create the contrasting mat.
I stamped the sentiment onto the back of the Irresistibly Yours DSP - this is plain white on the reverse - and punched it out using the 1 1/4" circle punch. I used a punched 1 3/8" Elegant Eggplant circle for the mat for this.
The length of beautiful White ribbon in the kit made a perfect bow to finish off my little box :o)
And this is Monica's gorgeous project .......
