Memory Box Challenge #37- Insects/Butterflies/Dragonflies

Challenge icons

Greetings friends.  It is time to introduce 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!  Thank you so much to everyone who played along with us for our flower challenge.  Flowers can be used year round and having all that inspiration was wonderful.

The winner of the blog badge was Bonnie from the Stamping with Klass blog.  We loved her elegant birthday card that could be used for so many other occasions:


The random winner drawn from all the entries was Ellie Knol from the Paper-Stamps-Color 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. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   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 are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.


This month's theme is all about creating cards using insects.  You can use bees, butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, etc....  You can stamp them, die cut them, make a bug shaped card or whatever your heart desires.  Do you want to make a creepy crawly card for a young kid or an elegant card with iridescent wings and shimmer?  The choice is completely up to you!  You can make  a project for any theme or occasion, but it should predominately feature at least one insect on it. We can't wait to see your take on the challenge.   Don't forget to include at least one Memory Box product for your entry.

Here are a few ideas from the design team to help get you started:
