Friday Challenge - Red, White & Blue with a Twist!

Friday, July 3, 2015

I'm not sure if you realize it or not, but….. IT"S FRIDAY!!! And that means that we have a new challenge for you! With the Fourth of July around the corner, we could just give you a Red, White & Blue Challenge BUT that would be too easy!! So instead, we are giving you a twist! Here is your challenge….. 

Create a project using the colors Red, White and/or Blue (use at least 2) PLUS something old and something new (product, technique or idea). Make sure when you post your project, you tell us what was old, and what was new! 

Look at the inspiration from our Design Team…. 


Joni Parker
Joni used an old Pink Paislee Paper line and the "scooter toy" in the photos is old. She used new corrugated paper and enamel triangles. The "scooter toy" is "new to us".

Friday Challenge - Summertime Blues!

Friday, June 19, 2015

This Friday challenge is anything to do with summertime or blue things that remind you of summer: skies, beaches, flowers...

Hi Everyone,
It's me, Tommy Jo, with the new Friday challenge. I have been thinking A LOT about summertime and the warm climate of the southeast. At the end of May, I closed on a home in Florida in preparation for retirement.

So, when  I was deciding what to challenge you with, I heard this song playing on Pandora...  "Ain't no cure for the summertime blues" and though I am excited about the prospect of retirement, but am a little bluesy about it not being an immediate move.

I scrapped a page showcasing the pool at my new house and our designers followed along with their own summertime challenge ideas. Please join us and post your projects about SUMMERTIME! We can't wait to see them!
