Welcome to Freebie Friday! If you’re like me, life is busy and there’s never enough hours in the day. Regardless of our work and family commitments, we all need our ”me” time to relax and recharge.
If you’re feeling the need to paper craft more and are looking for new outlets to express your creativity, you’ve come to the right place!
Today I’m excited to talk about the three S’s in the Paper Crafts world: sketches, sentiments and stamping!
On Monday, I announced our new Go-to Sketch Challenge #6. Featuring a fun sketch from Paper Crafts Go-to Gal Teri Anderson, you’ll find three online bonus projects that use this sketch HERE. And if you’re in a “sketchy” kind of mood and would like to participate in this challenge, click HERE for all the details. Deadline: Monday, Aug. 30 at midnight (MDT).
On Tuesday, Susan spotlighted our Simple Sentiments from the September/October issue. Not only are these great for Halloween cards, invites or favors, but they’re super easy to use. Just print and add a few fun embellishments! Wanna play? Browse through our library of downloadable sentiments, make a card using one of them and upload it to our Simple Sentiments Challenge. Deadline: Monday, Aug. 23 at midnight (MDT).
And just yesterday we announced we’re extending the deadline of our Stamp It! Techniques call for submissions. If you like to stamp, you get one more week! We’re looking for projects that incorporate the following six techniques:
1. Paper piecing with stamped images
2. Using spray-ink mists on stamped projects
4. Using markers in stamped projects
5. Gradient/spectrum stamping
