Default December Design Challenge

"So Very Versatile"

Oh my gosh – it’s already December! After asking you to create an entire card set last month, I thought I would try to make this month’s challenge a little easier since we all have so much going on!

I’ve called this month’s challenge “So Very Versatile” because if you have a favorite Design Tool Kit or Hot Off The Press template, I’d like to see you use it to create a project that features a cut-out window!

In a nutshell:

1. Use your favorite template or Design Tool Kit to create a card (or page) that has a window!

2. Highlight anything you want in your window – a sentiment, a stamp, Dazzles™, Paper Tole… Those a just a few ideas to get your started!

3. I’ve included two sketches for inspiration, but if your window takes you in a different direction, then so be it!

***I also have a somewhat sad announcement to make – this month will be our final Paper Wishes Monthly Design Challenge. We absolutely love seeing your fabulous entries each month, but unfortunately there just hasn’t been enough participation to keep the challenge going. All other Message Board challenges will continue as they have previously. So let’s end this one on a high note! I can’t wait to see what you ladies create next, and as always, feel free to post any questions you might have!

Some Basic Rules:

1. Everyone is welcome to participate in our challenge! These challenges are meant to be fun and inspire creativity. Measurements aren’t 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 Dazzles™, papers, stamps, templates, artful card kits, embossing folders, cutting dies and paper tole). Embellishments and accents, including glitter, flowers, ribbons, etc. aren’t required to be exclusively from Paper Wishes™.

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.

The monthly winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to Paper Wishes, and will have their project featured in our Paper Wishes Blog!

Post your project by:
Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Projects entered after the date will not be eligible for the contest.

Winner will be announced:
Thursday, January 1st, 2015 - Since nobody will be here on Thursday, we are moving this to Monday, Jan 5, 2015

I agree with Daria that is sad news. I realize that participation has been off, but the fall months are so busy for everyone which I feel is part of the reason. Maybe the Designers challenge could be geared on a schedule for every other month or even a quarterly schedule rather than monthly. I appreciate the challenges we've had, thank you.

I am with Karen, quarterly would be fabulous. Still posted for just a month, but appearing only 3-4 times per year. Please consider that. We love the challenges, but the timing has been off for many of our regulars.

Michelle, would like to add that I strongly feel that more involvement by PW designers on the MB would lead to more active members and more participation as well...

Michelle, and the Paper Wishes team, thanks so much for your support!!! IRL we are all so busy, we play when we can and unfortunately our crafting is usually put on hold.
