October Challenge: Create a NEW stamped project based on any of the following…

  • Holiday Cardmaking - Because it’s never too early to get a start on those holiday cards!
  • Holiday Die Cutting - Be sure to check out Shari Carroll’s October technique article and video for one adorable idea using our Frame Cuts dies.
  • Sketch Challenge - Choose from any of the three sketches provided below. Sketch projects do not need to be holiday themed — any theme goes! (Click image for a larger view.)
