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.

SUO Challenges #181 – Butterflies and Dragonflies!

I love this time of the year when butterflies and dragonflies seem to be everywhere. To me, the phrase, “lazy, hazy days of summer,” always includes an impression of dragonflies hovering lazily in the thick, humid, summer air. And in our garden, butterflies dance from flower to flower as if carried along on a breeze. Oh – so now that I’m out of my reverie, here’s your challenge this time: Make a card or other paper-crafted project that features butterflies or dragonflies – or both, using Stampin’ Up! products only, of course!

Here are the projects our Design Team made for this challenge. Click on their names under the photos of their projects to find out more about them. I hope they inspire you to make your own and share them with us! BUT BEFORE YOU SHAREPlease review our guidelines over at the left. If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
