Memory Box Challenge #66 Playing with Plaids

Challenge icons

Greetings friends. It is time for another challenge.  I hope you will join us this month for the challenge.

Thank you so much to everyone participated in last month's challenge.  The winner of the blog badge as well as the winner of the random draw was SmilynStef from the Ingenious Inkling blog.  This is only the second time that the winner also won the random draw, so congratulations Stef!  We loved your Halloween party scene:


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.


With fall and winter holidays fast approaching, many of the cards we create often have plaid elements to them.  There is just something comforting and cozy about plaid.  We would love to see your interpretation of the theme.  Do you stamp with plaid stripes?  Use patterned paper?  Plaid ribbons?  There are so many different options!  You can go in any direction that you want. We would love to see what you create. All we ask is that you use at least one memory box product in your entry.

Need a little inspiration? Here are some samples to help get you started:





There are several ways for you to enter the contest:

1.)  Link your finished work below

2.)  Enter on Instagram by tagging your sketch project with the #mbchallenge66 hashtag

You have until the end of the day (EST) on Friday, October 30th.   Don't forget, you have to use at least one Memory Box item on your entry.  One project will be chosen at random to win the following prize:



Update!!!  The link to enter is fixed, but we will be running this contest again in November for everyone who wants to play with this challenge.
