SUO Challenge #162 – Holiday Cuteness!

By the time this blog post goes live, we’ll have just about finished anything to do with Thanksgiving in the United States, and all around the world we’ll be starting to focus on Christmas and other December Holidays. There are so many different kinds of projects that we all make for this time of the year that it was hard to figure out how to narrow a challenge down. But we always come up with something! This time, let’s focus on cuteness! That’s your challenge – make something cute for whichever holiday you celebrate and share it with all of us here at SUO Challenges!

Here are our Design Team members’ Holiday Cuteness projects. I hope they inspire you to make your own and share them with us!

SUO Challenge #160 – Fall Fun!

By the time this challenge is over, Halloween will be a thing of the past, and we begin to look forward to Thanksgiving (in the United States), and more great Autumn weather (in the Northern Hemisphere).  But whether you enter this challenge as it begins and feel like celebrating Halloween or the currently gorgeous fall colors in many areas, or whether you’d like to get on to Thanksgiving, your challenge this time is to show us some projects that celebrate the fun that fall weather brings!  Your coordinator lives in the tropics, so we don’t get to enjoy the fall colors as much as many. But she still loves those fall colors! So wherever you are, I hope you’ll join in the fun and join in our challenge this time!

Here are our Design Team members’ Fall Fun projects. I hope they inspire you to make your own!

SUO Challenge #158 – Thanks and Thanksgiving

Fall is finally here for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere! And in North America, we’re getting close to the time when Canada and the United States celebrate  Thanksgiving.  Many of us send greeting cards or make fun table decorations for this holiday. So a challenge to make a Thanksgiving card or decoration is the first part of this challenge. But for those of you who would rather simply make a card or other project that expresses, “Thanks,” we’d love to see your projects, too. Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.

And now here are the projects from the Design Team!

SUO Challenge #157 – All Kinds of Weather!

Around the world the seasons are changing. In the northern hemisphere, we’re headed into Autumn and in the southern hemisphere, heading into Spring. In either part of the globe, this is the time of year when you can have just about any kind of weather there is! So your challenge for mid-September is to make a card or any other paper-crafted project featuring any kind of weather (and one of our Design Team members even made an “under the weather” card!). Make any kind of project you’d like, post it online, and link to our link tool at the bottom of this post to post a thumbnail of your project here.

Before I introduce the Design Team’s projects for this challenge, I would like to introduce the newest member of our team, Jason Loucks. Here is his very own introduction to all of us:

Born and raised in upstate New York, I currently reside in the state of Connecticut, where I live with my fur-baby, Lucky. I started card making when I joined Stampin’ Up! in the spring of 2012 but had to resign due to unforeseen circumstances, I have since rejoined and I’m enjoying every minute of it. When not working on my Stampin’ Up! business, I work for a local motorcycle apparel shop who has been in business for over 30 years. Though I don’t ride, I’ve enjoyed working for the company for over 6 years now.

In my free time, I like to relax and enjoy a good television show or movie on Netflix/Amazon. If I’m not watching the television, I can usually be found on my phone or computer, watching the latest crafty videos or spending too much time on Pinterest; it’s amazing how much time you spend on Pinterest and don’t even know it!

 

Welcome, Jason!

And now here are the projects from Jason and the rest of the Design Team!
