Each month, I challenge the members of my Stampin' Clubs to create a project for a contest and submit it to me. I assign a theme for them each month. Everyone in the Clubs then votes on their favorite 2 entries and the top entries win their creators a $5 coupon to use on their next order.
For October, I challenged them to create a project using some of our Designer Series Paper either current or retired.
We had lots of great cards submitted this month and voting was really close. In fact, we ended up with a tie for 2nd place!
Maria Flashman submitted several cards, but the top pick was this cool folded Christmas tree card using a folding pattern she found on Connie Babbert's blog:
