SUO Challenge #113 – Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Products

As we are about to get into the New Year, many people who are involved in Project Life are getting ready for their first scrapbook pages of the year.  But, while Project Life by Stampin' Up! (PLxSU) is wonderful for scrap booking types of projects, they are equally fun for using in greeting cards and other paper crafted projects.  Among the PLxSU products are cards, embellishments and lots of stamps!  Your challenge this time is to make something using PLxSU products in some way – and not just for scrapping!

Need some ideas to get your creativity started?  Then check out our Design Team projects – and have fun with you own project!

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 December 29, 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!

Challenge Dates:  December 30, 2014  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

SUO Challenge 112, Merry and Happy – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a project with a Merry and Happy Theme. Thanks especially to our Top 3 whom we felt did the best job of capturing our theme for the week!  Click on the pictures of their projects to go to their blogs or galleries for more details.

On a bit of a side note – I have to tell you that I cannot remember any of these three stampers being in our Top 3.  If they have been, it was a long time ago  Such fun to get to know some new stampers, and I hope you'll click on their links and comment on their blogs!  And for the winners – please don't forget to pick up a copy of the code for our Top 3, down on the left, just above "Archives."

 

Denise Willerton.  Denise's Punch Art Olaf is so much fun an so clever! This is just adorable and had us all smiling each time we looked at it!

Marilyn SanClemente.  We loved Marilyn's softly colored scene.  The doily is a delightfully perfect accent!

SUO Challenge 111, Tag You’re It – Our Top 3!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our challenge to feature a project using some kind of Stampin' Up! Tag. Thanks especially to our Top 3 whom we felt did the best job of capturing our theme for the week!  Click on the pictures of their projects to go to their blogs or galleries for more details.

 

Jenny Lane. We loved the use of the Holiday Home on the Winter Scene on this tag. The details are darling and so very festive in this beautifully laid out design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leanne Johnson.  This monochromatic card with the animals goes perfectly with the sentiment on the tag. We really liked the addition of the chevron design, especially included across the tag as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maria Vanderform.  All the colors in this tag make it so very cheerful, and the star embossing with the glitter adds beautifully to the festive look of this card.
