What a gorgeous time of the year! The weather is changing so there's a bit of a chill in the air. Leaves are colorful and apples abound in many of our cities and towns. Corn mazes are amusing our children and grandchildren, and Farmers Markets abound with all kinds of products just in from the fields.
It's Harvest Time! Well, it may be slightly different in different parts of the Stampin' Up! world. But I'm sure we can all relate to this special time.
Harvest Time – that's your challenge this time at the SUO Challenge Blog: Make a card or other paper crafted project that evokes the sense of Harvest Time!
The details of our guidelines are over at the left. But I summarize them at the end of the post, including the dates that this challenge is open. If you have any questions about linking your project or problems in creating the link, be sure to let the challenge coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, know. We cheerfully help crafters out just about every challenge, so don't be bashful about asking for help!
And now for the entries from the ladies AND gentleman of our Design Team!
To participate in our challenge, make a card or other paper-crafted project and post a photo of it to your blog or a gallery on the internet. Then come back here and use our link tool at the bottom of this post to share the photo with us.
PLEASE remember this: We’re looking for projects posted to the internet AFTER September 23, 2013. This is a NEW challenge! AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post!
And, of course, your projects should be made with Stampin’ Up! products only. The products may be those that are in current catalogs, or they may be retired products. But (as our blog title says) SUO – Stampin’ Up! Only! This means that products from other papercrafting, rubber stamp, die-making or other companies may not be included in your project or in any other project included in your blog post if Stampin’ Up! sells a like product. For example, Stampin’ Up! does not sell sewing thread. So use of sewing thread from another company is just fine. Stampin’ Up! does sell the Sizzix Big Shot, so use of die-cuts, texture plates or other such products from another company is not fine. If you have a question, please send an e-mail to our Coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, and she’ll be glad to answer it!
Challenge Dates: October 22, 2013 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
