Challenge icons

It is a new month, so it is time for a new challenge.  We  hope you will join us in some cardmaking fun.  Thank you to everyone who participated in the Terrific Trees competition. We loved seeing your designs.

The winner of the blog badge was Pat J off of SplitcoastStampers. 


The random pick winner of the prize pack was Prudence, who goes by _penguinparade on Instagram.

Please contact me at [email protected] with your full name and US address 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.

Perhaps it is the time of year filled with holidays, festivals and even shorter days with longer nights, but lights and lighting become very important. How do you incorporate light onto your cards? Lanterns? Candles? Fireplaces? Stars? Lamps? Christmas Tree lights? Menorahs? There are so many possibilities.   We would love to see your designs featuring light on them  All we ask is that you use make some form of lights be the primary focus on you card and that you use at least one Memory Box product in your entry
