I've started a new contest with my Club Members based on an idea shared by another Demonstrator. I give my Club Members who attend Classes each month some "homework" - a selection of basic supplies like cardstock, designer paper, ribbons, buttons, etc. Their assignment is to take those basic supplies and turn them into a card, tag, scrapbook page, scrapbook page embellishment, etc. and bring their creation with them to a Club Class the following month.
The first month we tried this was in April. Each person received the following supplies:
- Wild Wasabi card base
- 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock
- 4" x 4" piece of Perfect Plum Card Stock
- 2" x 4" piece of Subtles Backgrounds Designer Series Paper in So Saffron
- 8" piece of Venetian Crochet Trim
- Subtles Designer Button in So Saffron
Of course, they were allowed to add whatever other supplies they wanted and they didn't have to use all of the supplies that I provided, just as many as they could.
It was really fun at May Classes to see the very different projects that were created using these same basic supplies. I scanned all the projects in and then sent an e-mail to all my Club Members asking them to vote for their favorite project.
The winning project for the April Club Homework was this simple, beautiful thinking of you card by Kasey Turner:
Uses Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set and Painted Petals Stamp Set plus Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin' Pad, Perfect Plum Classic Stampin' Pad, Wild Wasabi Cardstock, Perfect Plum Cardstock, Very Vanilla Cardstock, SNAIL Adhesive, Venetian Crochet Trim, Craft Scissors, and Stampin' Trimmer.
Kasey will be getting a roll of Smoky Slate 3/4" Chevron Ribbon from me as a prize. Enjoy, Kasey! Beautiful card!
