Announcing...Memory Box Challenge #1- Butterflies

Challenge iconsGreetings everyone!  We are so excited to announce that Memory Box is going to start a monthly challenge!  We hope you will participate and share your work with the Memory Box community.

We are starting June's challenge today, but starting in July, we will introduce a new challenge on the 1st of each month.  Each challenge will have a central theme, and the Memory Box Design Team will post samples to help get you started.  You will have until the end of the month to play along for your chance to win. 

The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and  link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize.  In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You can enter as many times as you like, and you are welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar!

Great idea!

What fun. Can't wait to play along.

Hurrah! I've been wishing you had a challenge--thank you! My butterfly dies need some love, so I'll be entering for sure!

This is wonderful news! I think I have more Memory Box dies than any other brand - you are my favourite! I have a lot of your butterfly dies too, so this is a wonderful theme for your first challenge. Your DT sample cards look amazing! I love your butterflies! I'm going to add your badge to my sidebar now - thank you!
