Please only link to your Personal Blog, and starting with this term.. you Do Not have to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator to be on the FM Team. We look forward to visiting your blogs.


This week's Mashup Challenge is:
  • Create a project using "a Metal Embellishment (Staple, Brad, Grommet etc.)". 
  • Create a project using "Weather as your Inspiration" think Storms, Winter, Clouds, Rain, Sun, Warm Sandy Beaches.

Sara's Picks for FM185!


I had a lot of fun checking out each of your cards and blogs to see how you used the dark colors and diamond dust technique this past week.  Thanks to each of you for playing along with us. You definitely made it hard for me to choose just two of you, but I finally managed.  Let's see who this week's Rock Star and Glamette are...



Claire's card uses my colors beautifully and I love how she used the dazzling diamond technique as the back of her shaker box...how fun!  Congrats, Claire! 

Glamette

Wendi @ Stampsational

I love how Wendi's flowers and leaves shimmer using the diamond dust technique and how she used my colors to make a clean and simple thank you card.  Congrats, Wendi! 

Thank You again to everyone who joined us.. We will see you all back here tomorrow for a fun new challenge. ~ Sara

Lisa's Picks for FM184!


It was great fun to look at all the creative boxes! Thanks to everyone who played along!




Heidi's box is so fun, I love the DSP she used and all the sweet accents. It's a lovely way to show thanks to someone. Great job mashing up the challenge, Heidi!


Glamette

FM184... Put it in a Box!

Lisa here, bringing you a new Friday Mashup challenge! Even though today is Halloween many folks are already planning for Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and thinking about all they are thankful for. I know for me it's been a year full of changes, some good and some bad, but I'm thankful for all that I have and I'm always looking for ways to show my friends and family how thankful I am for them. 

That inspired this challenge....a Thanksgiving or thankful themed project! Boxes also seem to be popular in paper crafting right now so create a box ....it can be a star shape, a box in a bag, card in a box....let your imagination soar! I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!


Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a "Box Project". 
  • Create a project with a "Thanksgiving or Thankful Theme".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Thanksgiving- or Thankful-Themed Box".
