Memory Box Challenge #69- Pretty Purples

Challenge icons

Greetings friends. Congratulations on making it to 2021! 2020 was incredibly tough, so I wish for a much better new year for everyone.

January marks a new month, so it is time for another challenge.  I hope you will join us this month for the crafting fun.

Thank you so much to everyone participated in last month's heart challenge. The winner of the blog badge was Larissa Heskett from the Larissa Heskett Designs blog. We loved her snowman heart card:



The random winner selected from all the entries to win the prizes was Lucy G from the LucyG Cards 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.


It has been a while since we have done a color challenge. This month's theme is "purple." Perhaps you will be inspired to make a Valentine. Perhaps not. You can create any theme you want so long as the main color of your card is purple. Perhaps you will make a birthday card or Mother's Day card. The choice is really up to you. We would love to see your interpretation. All we ask is that you use at least one Memory Box product in your entry.
