Week 2 - A Tool Challenge!

Wow, first let me say I'm so excited about our new little blog and how much easier it makes it for other people to play along with us! Thank you so much to everyone who played! This morning I put everyone's names into a cup and pulled out Stephanie's name! Whoo hoo - Stephanie wins last weeks prize package!! (Be sure to pm me with your address!) Check out her awesome giraffe card!

This week our hostess Lynda came up with another exciting topic - a tool challenge! I don't know that I've ever seen this done except as part of a limited supply challenge or something, so what a fun topic! The challenge this week is to use Nestabilities dies! Now, we're not sticklers here, so if you don't have Nestabilities die cuts, you can still play - you can use shape punches, scallop punches, circle cutters - whatever you have that will approximate the look! Check out Lynda's exciting sample:

Lynda Benden - Stamp Act



















For those who might not be familiar with Nestabilities, the ovals around the mustang are the Nestabilities. Look at how Lynda used the Nestabilities to frame that gorgeous face - awesome card!

And here are the design team samples:

Maria Levine - Ria Creations















This little note card set is SO adorable - and piece standing up is a little holder - how creative is Maria??

Cindy Haffner - Cindy Haffner's Corner




















What an adorable card!! The sentiment just kills me!

Jennifer Meyer - Sweet Treat Designs




















Another beautiful mustang card - I think the Daisy Bucket paper is fabulous with that face!!

Linda Boucher - Mothers and Daughters Creations Mom's Page






































Mom made these beautiful pages with our new paper from Kaiser Craft - goes great with these pictures from the Sea Turtle rescue facility we visited in Florida!

Tamara McKlveen - Mothers and Daughters Creations - Tamara's Page




















My creation is a Christmas tree ornament - I totally stole the basic idea from a Basic Grey ornament pack but I used the scallop edged circles!

To keep things rolling happily along, we're offering another prize pack this well!



















This weeks prize package includes two stamp packs from Scenic Route, Elastic Trim from Paper Salon, one 6x6 Archaic Paper Pad, an alterable album from Crafty Secrets, and some paper flowers from Prima! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with - have a great week!

This week's challenge looks like such a fun one. I don't even have a cuttlebug yet let alone any of the nesties so I may have to try using something else. Thanks again for a great new challenge blog! :D

I don't have any Nestabilities yet, but I created a scalloped frame using the deco strips from the cuttlebug Babyface font... http://paperinkandsmiles.blogspot.com/2008/07/in-dog-house.html
