It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team are back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?!?!?
Our challenge this month is …..
Frame It – There are so many options to include frames when we are creating either cards, scrapbook layouts or home decor items. For our challenge this month please include a frame of some type when creating your project.
Earlier this year we released two new dies designed by ModaScrap called Happy Frames and Happy Frames XL that some of our Design Team members have used for this month’s challenge. Els shared a Technique Friday with Els a few weeks ago showing how to use these dies. You can find it here.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment either on the Facebook Giveaway post or this blog post below and answer this question: What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use to frame something on a card, scrapbook layout of home decor item?
