SUO Challenges #183: Autumn Colors!

Before this challenge is over, we’ll be full into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere. So many kinds of projects come to mind for Autumn, but all of them involve autumn colors. What’s your favorite autumn color or set of colors? Your challenge this time is to create a paper crafting project – using Stampin’ Up! products, of course, that feature your favorite Autumn Colors!

Here are the projects from our Design Team. I hope they will inspire you to get out YOUR Autumn Colors!

Design Team member, Pam Staples, missed the last two challenges due to emergency surgery. This time, her church has asked her to provide temporary lodging for a family that was evacuated from Florida due to Hurricane Irma. So she’s been a busy lady! But we hope to have her lovely projects back here before too very long!

PLEASE remember this: We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER September 11, 2017.

SUO Challenges 182: A Blast From the Past – and Blog Candy!

It’s our 7th Anniversary! This fun occasion is a great excuse to look back over the past 7 years of SUO Challenges and Stampin’ Up! in general and celebrate something fun from the past. Our challenge this time is to create a project with the theme, A Blast From the Past. That can be whatever you want it to be, and I’m sure  you’ll have fun posting about this on your blog or wherever you show off  your projects. For our Design Team members, we suggested an old project with new products; a new project with old products, or even a reprise of something they’ve made for the SUO Challenge blog in the past. Just have fun with it.

Speaking of our Design Team: In looking back over the 7 years of SUO Challenge posts, I discovered that the fabulous Karen Barber has been a team member from the very start. I can’t imagine this team without her, and now I know why. Thanks for all the years of great projects, Karen!

Now onto the challenge with contributions from our current Design Team. I’m sure you’ll want to know the story behind each of these “Blast From the Past” projects, so be sure to click on their names below their projects to go to their blogs to find out the story! Oh – and there’s blog candy this time for our Top 3. A party has to have gifts! We’ll send each of our Top 3 for this challenge a brand new pack of Delicate White Doilies from Stampin’ Up! and a handmade card to go with it.
