Mystery Envelopes


We have another challenge for our members this month -- just trying something new :-)

The challenge is "mystery envelopes" -- the mystery being that you don't know what's in the envelope. I have 8 envelopes packaged and ready to go to the first 8 members to email me. Each envelope has the same products - an assortment of patterned paper, ribbon and some smaller embellishments.

*****Edited to add: We have our eight players! Ladies, your envelopes will go in the mail tomorrow! Thanks, everyone, for emailing. If you didn't get picked, try again next month! *****

Your challenge, if you chose to accept an envelope, is to do a layout using at least one of everything in the envelope. You add your own cardstock. You may add other products but please keep it to a minimum. Deadline for layouts is February 29th.

You would then need to scan or photograph your layout and send it (or a link) to me. At the end of the month, we'll display your creations on our blog.

Sound like fun?! I've participated in this sort of challenge before and really enjoyed it. It's neat to see how everyone uses the same items in such different ways/styles.

So, a recap of the DETAILS:

  • Be one of the first 8 people to email me with your mailing address
  • Wait for your envelope to arrive in the mail

  • Create a layout using at least one of each of the supplies

  • Send us a link to your layout, or send a scanned pic by February 29th

Please don't email for an envelope unless you can complete the challenge. By accepting an envelope from us, you are agreeing to us posting your layout on our blog.

We are planning on running this challenge more regularly, so, if you don't get picked this month, try again next time!

Sisterhood.... a celebration of the he{ART}

I missed out on this challenge but hope to do it another time. We had a bit of trouble with our power last night due to tornadoes touching down on both sides of our town.
