Paper Sweeties Challenge | November 2017!

Hello crafty friends!  It’s that time of the month again … time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!    Before we share the new inspiration board, let’s congratulate last month’s challenge winner … the votes are in and I’m thrilled to announce our latest winner of the October challenge:  Allisa!

  Contact us, Allisa, to claim your $25 gift certificate prize … and here’s a {sweet} badge to display on your blog!

PS-Winner BadgePaper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog and in our Facebook Group! Each 1st of the month we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity!  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using ANY of your favorite crafty supplies … you don’t have to use products from Paper Sweeties, but we would LOVE if you did!   Use this month’s board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme … ANYTHING GOES!

2. POST a direct link to your project in the link gallery below (if using your blog, please link to your blog post not your entire blog so we can find your creation) or UPLOAD a photo of your project to our FACEBOOK GROUP CHALLENGE ALBUM .  No blog or not on Facebook, no problem — you can use any of our online galleries to add your project link:  Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest or Splitcoast Stampers – (keyword papersweeties).  Contact us if you have questions or need assistance!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your followers can find us too!  (Back linked posts will not be considered for the monthly prize).

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want!  The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

This month’s inspiration board:

HOW will YOU be inspired this month — colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the theme, colors and words in this month’s fun photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

I attempted to re-create the pumpkin shape with the large words on my card … can you see it?  I added a couple die cut vines, some twine, sequins and a stick from my yard for the pumpkin stem!

I used these products from Paper Sweeties to create this fun fall card:

    I absolutely LOVE your card, Debbie. It matches the inspiration photo SO perfectly. I could see your wheels turning from the moment you selected the inspiration photo, and it turned out just as perfectly as you had hoped. FABULOUS combination of Paper Sweeties products. LOVE everything about this. I hope everyone finds our challenge this month and falls IN LOVE with the fabulous new November Paper Sweeties Release.
