Wait...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 July's challenge we would like for you to create 4 cards using the sketch below.
Here is my submission for this month....
When I first received these ribbons, the colors are in each of the 2015-2017 In-Colors, I knew immediately the card I wanted to create. And then Rose created the sketch and I decided this was the time to put my idea into action. You know me, I don't use traditional Christmas colors all the time. I have a video tutorial below.
Now for the Rules to Win Prizes:
1. Each Month you participate you will get a ticket, 1st month earn 1 ticket, 2nd month, earn 2 tickets, and so on.
2. Post your your projects on the Facebook Group, in the thread we have marked for that month. Please add your region (Austrailia, UK, or USA) - PLEASE not as a separate comment.
3. You must use at least one Stampin' Up! Product to be entered into the prize, preferably a stamp set.
To be eligible to win a prize you need to live in the USA, UK/Europe or Australia.
By submitting a photo you give the organizers permission to use the photo on their blog and social media.
Ok, what is the prize?? The first prize is US $60, UK £50, AUS $88 of product that the organizers will choose and ship free of charge. The second prize is a sample of each of the items the organizer/s from your respective country makes.
The Facebook group is - Christmas Challenge Stampathon 2018
Please join to share your photo's in the designated post for that month's challenge.
