Never Too Early for Love Creative Challenge

I know Christmas hasn't even arrived yet, but if you're a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, it's not too soon to start thinking about Valentine's Day. (And besides, is it ever too early for love?!)

Our new Spring Catalog features some great products that can be used for Valentine's Day projects, but you can use any Stampin' Up! products to create your submissions. And while I know not all countries celebrate Valentine's Day, I also know that love is celebrated around the world, so I hope everyone will feel free to contribute their "I love you" projects.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!


Holiday Table Decoration Creative Challenge


We all get to be a little selfish once in awhile, right? This is one of those times for me!

It’s our turn to host Christmas this year, and we always have a nice Christmas dinner. This month I’d love for you to share holiday table decoration projects. Name cards, place settings, table decorations. . . whatever you want to share. You can do just one project or an entire ensemble.

I can’t wait to see your ideas, and hopefully you’ll all benefit from seeing these great ideas too! Thanks in advance for helping us out with our Gardner Family Christmas!





Two-Layer Creative Challenge Winners

I'm embarrased that it's taken me this long to post the winners for the Two-Layer Creative Challenge--so sorry. We didn't have many submissions. . . it was either a busy month for everyone (I can certainly relate to that!) or you (like me) have a hard time keeping it to only two layers! (smile)

I did enjoy checking out all the great projects, and thank you for sharing! Congratulations to this month's winners!

Happy Holidays Creative Challenge

It’s that time of year, believe it or not. . . time to start thinking about the holidays. Of course, some of you may have started long ago planning your holiday creativity. If so, good for you! You’re definitely a step ahead of me! I’d like to be that organized and on the ball, but . . . well, someday.

In the past I’ve posted challenges for neighborhood gifts, Christmas cards, holiday decorations. . . lots of different projects. This year it’s wide open—anything related to the holidays works for me! So pull out the stamps and ink, cardstock and glitter, or click on your computer and start creating. I can hardly wait to see what you have to share and start celebrating with some inspiring holiday projects!


A Two-Layer Creative Challenge

Every year at Founder’s Circle (which is this month), we do swaps; this is one of the few swaps I participate in every year. This year we were given a specific challenge: Create a project with no more than two layers (hey wanted to focus on simple projects that would work great at workshops and other events).

You all know I love layers, so this was definitely a challenge for me! After Founder’s Circle, I’ll share my swap with you;  I’m curious to see all the other swaps at Founder’s Circle next week. I’d love to have you join us in this challenge as well. So this month (sorry, I posted this late, so it won’t be a full month) let’s limit it to two layers, and start creating!
