Motivate Me Monday Challenge
Sweet 'n Sassy has started a new challenge called Motivate Me Monday! And who couldn't use a little motivation on a Monday? I know I was certainly dragging this morning! ;-) The MMM challenges will be posted on the Scrapbook News & Review site; you can find the first challenge, Let it Snow, here. (You may have to join the group in order to see the challenge and/or post comments.) The best part? There are prizes, which will be rewarded on Friday (1/15)!! Here are the details... Make a creation based on this week's challenge (Let it Snow) and then upload it to the SNR gallery. Be sure to list the following keyword in the Tags section: MMM1. If you play along with us and upload your creation by 10am EST on Friday (1/15), a winner will be selected from the list of participants to win their very own Love You This Much stamp set! AND...if you share your creation by 10pm EST (7pm PST) tonight, you'll receive a coupon for free shipping on your next SNSS order! How is that for motivation??? IMPORTANT NOTES: You don't have to use Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps or digis to play along with the challenge. However, if you do use a SNSS image (stamp or digi) your name will be entered into the drawing twice! After you upload your project, please be sure to post a comment to this challenge thread that includes 1) a link to or photo of your creation and 2) your email address for the early bird prize. If you prefer not to share your email address publicly, please email it and a link to your challenge project directly to Korin at firstname.lastname@example.org. As for my creation...I actually made this over the weekend, before I knew about the MMM Challenge! I saw an adorable scrapbook page in an advertisement and knew that my SNSS snowman would be perfect for a page documenting this year's first big snow fall. To create my 8x8 layout, I stamped a polka dot image over the entire page and then added a few swirls (Papertreyink). A few layers of paper, that has been stamped with different background images or embossed, were layered together before added the photos. This served as a nice frame for the photos. My darling snowman was colored with Copics (in color coordinating attire, of course!) and attached with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment, which is included with the stamp set, a number of times across a piece of white cardstock before cutting into a ribbon shape and attaching with a brown button (PTI). A few shimmery snowflakes were added to photos for a little pop. (You can click on the photo for a larger view of the project). Enjoy today's creation and head on over to the SNSS page to join in on the challenge fun!!
