Hey Savages, it's Kim here to let you know about all the challenges going on for the month of December. The start of the month, starts new challenges. This month is no different, even with the holidays. Although, a few challenges have been "altered" a bit to accommodate every one's hectic schedule.
First let's talk about the ongoing challenges. The All that Flutters challenge is ongoing, it ends December 15. This challenge is hosted by DT member Angelica and is always a lot of fun. The members create gorgeous layouts/projects for this challenge.
The requirements for this challenge are: Using the Beloved Kits create a layout, project, or card using anything that flutters. i.e butterflies,dragonflies bees, ladybugs, birds, fairies...etc!
Here are some of the wonderful entries from this challenge:
We have another challenge that ends on December 15. That would be our monthly sketch challenge. Each month subscribers get a sketch with their kit, but the sketch is also posted on the website/blog for non-subscribers.
The sketch challenge is open to everyone and you don't have to use a kit to participate either. It is always fun to see how everyone interprets the sketch.
The requirements for this challenge are: All you have to do is create a layout based on this sketch using any supplies you want by December 15th and upload HERE to be eligible to win a fantastic prize!
Here are some of the wonderful entries from this challenge:
On to the new Challenges for December. The first one is the Swirly Girl Challenge (SGC). This is a monthly member hosted challenge. Our Swirly girls manage to come up with some of the most interesting challenges that push you out of your creative comfort zone. This challenge is open to everyone as well.
This months challenge is being hosted by Swirly Savage Linda. Linda decided to change up the challenge a bit month so as not to stress any one out. She just wants you to share what you are doing this holiday season. How wonderful is that? If you happen to be crafting, that's even better.
The requirements for this challenge are: Share with us your cards, the gifts you're making, a poem you love, a special you tube, concerts that you go to.... you get the idea. Whenever you have a spare minute - stop and share a little bit of what's going on in your life, with us!
Some of our Swirly sisters have been happily decorating their homes for the holidays. Please stop by the forums here to see the beautiful decorations they have shared in this challenge.
The December Round Robin Challenge has started. This is another challenge that is open to everyone, you just have to look for the sign ups when they roll around. The round robin is always a guessing game. Each week it is exciting to see the new "lift" of the layout the week before.
This months round robin has changed a bit too. Instead of it being a layout challenge, we are making tags. Just to take a bit of the stress off.
The requirements for this challenge are: For this month, we’re going to say “anything goes”: please feel free to use whatever you have at hand. (This may be a good way to use leftovers from card making!)
The first tags aren't due until Dec 8th, so check back later to see what everyone comes up with. I can't wait to see, we have some ladies who make the most stunning tags.
There will also be a new sketch revealed later this month as well as a new All That Flutters Challenge. These will begin when the December kit is revealed, so be on the look out.
