Default August Design Challenge

Here at Paper Wishes, the leaves are just beginning to fall, so for our August Design Challenge letís see your autumn-themed cards and pages! Your project could feature rustic fall leaves, late-summer sunflowers, or a cute back-to-school or football season kickoff theme. Whatever the beginning of fall means to you!

Your second guideline is to add a little sparkle to your project. Whether you use embossing powder, micro glitter, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Markers, or simply a shimmery specialty paper, letís see a little glimmer and shine!!!

Letís also make this monthís projects square-shaped! I have included a sketch for inspiration, but feel free to interpret loosely!



Some Basic Rules:

1. Everyone is welcome to participate in our challenge! These challenges are meant to be fun and inspire creativity. Measurements arenít provided, because we want you to have some creative freedom! Feel free to create a card, a scrapbook page, or your other favorite paper craft project!

2. Please use primarily Hot Off The Press materials (such as Dazzlesô, papers, stamps, templates, artful card kits, embossing folders, cutting dies and paper tole). Embellishments and accents, including glitter, flowers, ribbons, etc. arenít required to be exclusively from Paper Wishesô.

3. You can enter more then once.

4. Please list your products for us. It lets us know what you like, and lets others know what you've used so they can make their own inspired version. We understand that we all have things in our craft stashes that may no longer have the original packaging. Please choose your products accordingly, and keep in mind that the list of products is required. We want to be fair to those that do list all of their products.

Very pretty, Daria! I don't do a lot of fall, so I'm having trouble thinking about this one.

Natures Watercolor PP
Gold ripple paper
Greetings & label stamp
6 Labels cutting die
3 Leaves cutting die
EK Success maple leaf punches
Gold Pigment ink
Clear Embossing Powder
1/4" foam squares & glue dots
