4 Challenges

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

That's right! I'm issuing a challenge! Or 1 or 2 or 4 =) It's been awhile since I've given away a RAK and with that 400th post rapidly approaching I wanted to do something special!

Lately I've been so inspired by various challenges and today I'm hoping to do the same for you.

Here are the PHP challenges:
  1. Theme Challenge-It's my birthday month! And I'm planning a whole host of birthday themed projects and surprises. So this challenge is for you to do some birthday scrapping. Or make someone a birthday card! You always have need of one of those. Balloons, candles, confetti, wishes! Get into it and have fun!
  2. Technique Challenge-Inking is my favorite technique. I love paint splatters, stamping, distressing, the works! I'd love to see your inky creations, the better for inspiration for me! 
  3. Stash Challenge-We all have so much in the way of products, what better way to be inspired than with stuff you already own. Personally, patterned paper is my weakness. I have so much of the stuff! So I'm challenging you to figure out what product you have the most of, and use it! Are you a sucker for buttons or brads? Are you wacko for washi? Or have tons of diecuts laying around? Get them out and put them on a page! I'm planning to bust into some of those 6x6 paper pads I love to buy but seldom use.
  4. Class Challenge-Raise your hand if you bought a class, printed out all of the handouts and then did nothing with them. Yup, me too! We spend all of this money and don't get out what we financially put in. I do this ALL the time. So today I'm vowing to scrounge up those handouts, watch those old videos and get down to some serious scrapping. Won't you join me?
I'm happy for you to combine any challenges and if you can somehow work a layout to include all 4, then hats off to you! Mostly, I hope you're inspired to make some fun pages to add to your scrapbooks. Or a card or two to send to someone you love!

So what's the prize you might ask?

Two winners will receive $10 gift vouchers to the online retailer of you choice. Two Peas in a Bucket, Studio Calico, Simon Says Stamps. You name, it will be yours!

All you have to do is post your completed challenge project(s) to either a blog or an online gallery and link it up here! And, if you wouldn't mind mentioning my blog and the challenges, so other people can get in on the fun too =) Simples!

I'll pick and post the winners on September 27, my birthday! Dive into it. Have fun!
Can't wait to see those projects!

cheers & besos,


  1. Fun! I'll see if I can work something out!

  2. This sounds like great fun, I am working on getting some crafty time, I'll try and work on these as well!

  3. Busted into my stash of kits and used up some patterned papers (and ink). Going to see if I can attempt one more challenge of yours!

  4. Here is my entry, I used my embellishment stash (washi, buttons, rub-ons) : )
