When a new Stampin' Up! catalog is published, many of us can hardly wait to get our hands on some of the new toys featured in it. This week our challenge is to make a paper crafting project (card or any other kind of project) that includes or uses some new Stampin' Up! product(s) that you have. While we'd love to see products from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog, you are not limited to that catalog!
Once you have your project done, post a photograph of it on your blog or in any other open online gallery, and then add a link to our Link Tool at the bottom of this post. 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!
Of course we have guidelines and they are detailed at the left and summarized below,, including the dates that this challenge is open.
Please remember this is an SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) challenge. Cards using non-SU! images, paper, embellishments, etc., will be removed. We also ask that you do not have advertisements for products (e.g., classes and subscription services) in your post. Please respect our criteria.
And now on to some inspiration from our talented design team for this week's challenge!
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 January 13, 2014. 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!
