Texture - Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018

Hello all!!  What a month June has been for me, this past weekend I had my catalog launch party, or better known as Ladybug Bingo Stampin Style.  I will post more about this tomorrow, but for now today is the 25th of the month.  What does that mean?  It's time for another Christmas Challenge Stampathon theme.

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.  I have their links below, for you to view their projects as well.

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.

For June's challenge we would like for you to create 4 projects but they must have some texture.  You can make cards, tags, bags, decor, or even a scrapbook pages.

I love this months challenge!!  You all know I love black and white, and yes while that may not be traditional Christmas colors, it's what I like.  And besides, who says red and green are the only Christmas colors?  I mean Jesus was born in a stable, surrounded by sand...not evergreens!

See how I did that?! Yes I am smiling as I write that, but it is the truth now that I really think about it.

Here is my submission for this month....

I love our boxwood wreaths, it was perfect for what I needed.  And the addition of our sparkly embossing paste as snow made me long for a cold winter's day....on the television that is!  Yes I am a southern girl at heart and love my warmer winters.  But I do love to see snow falling from the sky, on occasion.

1. Each Month you participate you will get a ticket, 1st month earn 1 ticket, 2nd month, earn 2 tickets, and so on.
