Featured Stampers: SDC7 - Use a Template

Thank you to everyone who picked out a template and played along with us this time! Your work was just fabulous!! 

I confess that I was so excited to host my first challenge, that I forgot all about the almost impossible task of having to choose a few to feature! Now I'm REALLY struggling to pick just a few - they were all so much fun!

The first one I'd like to show you is by Tracy Evans at Craft Addicts. She has used a tag as her template and traced around it onto watercolor paper. I really like the idea of using various found objects as templates! I had to laugh along with the sentiment that reminds me so much of my friend, Wendy, who has 3 children plus takes in an additional 4 children for day care.

The next project I would like to share is by MaryAnne at Scrappy Sticky Inky Mess. She took the plunge and tried a pyramid box - a template I've always wanted to try! I laughed so hard I cried when I started to think about a few of the "unsuitable suitors" in my past! Be sure to pop on over to her blog to see the adorable surprise inside!

The final project is by Donna Mundinger at Popsicle Toes. She has used Jokerhat by Kelle McCarter to top this ingenious box where the sides fold open to reveal a little box inside (check out the details on her blog). I like the idea of hiding a box in a box! Additionally, the playful use of color and ribbon as well as the shape of the nesties complements the whimsy of this project.

Thank you again to everyone for playing!
Be sure to check back tomorrow as the winner of this week's challenge draw is revealed along with the next challenge theme!

Kind regards,
Val :)
