Memory Box Challenge #5 Black and White

Challenge iconsIt  is time to announce another Memory Box Challenge.  We  hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even  have the chance to win prizes!

The winner of our blog badge for last month's "Terrific Trees" challenge is Cornelia from the Stempel Spass blog.    We really appreciated her use of mirrored and glittery papers with the tree die. 


The lucky winner of the draw for the  monthly prize is Dr. Sonia S V from the Cards, Crafts, Kids Projects blog.

Please contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  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!


Ahhh....black and white.  It is a classic for a reason.  Stylish, elegant, and perfect for just about any occasion.  How are you inspired to use a black and white palette in your crafting?  Is it for Halloween, weddings, thinking of you, or any other event?  We want to see all of your ideas for combining black and white.   You can choose any holiday, scene, or event you want to highlight in black and white.  We can't wait to see your inspirational creations.

Here are a few card ideas to help get you started:
