Welcome to our last Makeover Monday challenge – a weekly challenge brought to you by the Paper Crafter’s Library and Sunny Stampin’ Studios. The purpose of Makeover Monday is to help you learn how to take the ideas and inspiration you find on the internet, and make it your own. This challenge is strictly a “work from your stash” challenge.
Yep! You did read that correctly. When we launched our Makeover Monday challenge 3 1/2 months ago – we had high hopes for this challenge. After all, in our emails, people would consistently be asking us HOW we came up with our ideas, and WHERE we went for inspiration. That is where the concept for this challenge was born. Unfortunately, the participation has been disappointing, which is why we’ve decided to discontinue this particular challenge.
We’re at a cross roads right now, trying to figure out whether or not to continue on with any type of challenge – is challenges something you guys want? If yes, what type of challenges would you like to see? Please take a minute to answer our question in the comments section of this post so that we can decide whether or not there is any value in trying a different type of challenge.
Our last inspiration piece, shown below, is from Deanna Misner– a paper crafter whose blog we recently discovered.
You can watch Tracy re-create the page using elements from our stash here at the Sunny Stampin’ Studio:
Here are the details on how you can participate in the Makeover Monday Challenge:
A new Makeover Monday Challenge & video will go up every Monday
