SUOC #141 – Happy Birthday!

No, it’s not our birthday. But maybe it’s yours – or a friend or family member! What a fun time of the year to be celebrating a birthday. With no big holidays around, the birthday gal or guy is bound to be the star of the day! So your challenge this time is to make something to celebrate a birthday. Of course, cards are wonderful (much better than writing on a Facebook wall!). But favors and decorations are sure to be a hit when they’re handmade. Anything goes for this challenge!

To get you started with ideas, our Design Team has come up with a lovely assortment of cards. But don’t forget that any paper crafted item works for this challenge, as long as it’s Stampin’ Up! Only! We look forward to seeing what you do with this 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 February 1, 2016.  This is a NEW challenge!  AND please mention/link to the SUO Challenge Blog in your post!

Of course, your projects must 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:  February 2, 2016  (3 am USA Eastern Time) –

To get you started with ideas, our Design Team has come up with a lovely assortment of cards. But don’t forget that any paper crafted item works for this challenge, as long as it’s Stampin’ Up! Only! We look forward to seeing what you do with this challenge.
