Sparkle & Shine Treat Box - Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018

Today is May 25th, which means it's time for another Christmas Challenge Stampathon project.  This month's challenge is to create at least 4, if not more, projects that use sparkle and shine.  Why? Well this way you can create now, store for Christmas with out taking up too much room.

What is Christmas Callenge Stampathon?

Do you find yourself scrambling to get your Christmas cards out in December?  Make creative tags for your packages?  Gift and Treat bags? Home Decor?

Well, a group of talented demonstrators and myself have decided to collaborate to help,all of us, not to feel rushed in December.

It's called the Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018!!!  There is even some prizes involved, yay!!!

Who can participate? What is it? How do I join?

Everyone is welcome to join in the Challenge, including demonstrators.  You are encouraged to share with your customers.

This is a collaboration between Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in the US, UK and Australia.

Everyone is welcome to join in the Challenge.

The Challenge will be set on the 25th of the month on each of the organizers Facebook pages and will then have followup information on their blogs and YouTube channels.

The deadline for submission is 11pm on the 24th of the following month in your respective time zone.

And don't worry if you don't have any Christmas stamp set's yet, you can use just about any stamp set.

This is my May submission, using one of my favorite sets in the annual catalog.  And using the retiring, Popcorn Thinlets.
