W2CB #51: Phenomenal Woman

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our March/April W2CB Challenge.

In honor of Women's History Month, our words for this challenge come to us from the phenomenally inspirational Maya Angelou.

Let's see how our gals interpreted these empowering words.






Can't wait to see how Dr. Angleou's words inspire you. Perhaps they will inspire you to make something for a special woman in your own life. Share your creation with us for a chance to win $10 to the e-tailer of your choice.  :)

W2CB #50: A Blizzard of Kisses

Hi, everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!

Sybrina here with our February/March Challenge. Our words this month are:

If kisses were snowflakes, I'd send you a blizzard.

Although our words are perfect for today's celebration, they're also wonderful for snow, blizzards... and love in general.

So, let's see how our gals interpreted these words... starting with our newest I-Teamer Jennifer. Welcome, Jennifer! We're thrilled that you've joined our W2CB DT.






Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll come back and link up a words-inspired card/project of your own. One talented crafter will win $10 to the e-tailer of her/his choice.

W2CB #49: The Magic of Beginnings

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our first W2CB of the new year.

But, before we get to our challenge, we have Inspiration Team news to share.
  • We start by saying goodbye and thank you to Designers Penny Ward and Marty Fishman. The only thing  more impressive that Penny and Marty's talent is their kindness. Both have been absolute delights to work with. While they will be missed, we have promises that they will not be strangers.  All the best, ladies, in your future crafting adventures.  :)
  • We are thrilled to welcome Celeste Goff of Crafting Junky to our I-Team! Celeste and I met through Send a Smile 4 Kids. In addition to the adorable cards for the kids at Nationwide Children's, you may have seen the wonderful cards she makes for her blog's monthly Coffee and Cards with Celeste and Deb feature. Welcome, Celeste! 

Now for this month's words. Our inspiration for our January/February challenge come to us from Meister Eckhart. 

And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.

Let's see how our gals were inspired, starting with our newest I-Teammer.  :)

Celeste chose a gorgeous sentiment to commemorate a new beginning, and her leaf is absolutely beautiful. What a pretty card!

Kristina's made an absolutely adorable wedding card. Don't you just love her fab CAS design?! That waft of smoke is just too clever.

Bobbi also made a wedding card... for friends who love to scuba dive. What a perfect card to celebrate their new beginning!

Finally, I was inspired to use a stamp set gifted by a friend who had a few designs made into stamps for the very first time! Talk about the magic of beginnings!

So, what do these words mean to you? Maybe it's a new beginning of your very own. Maybe one of your loved ones is celebrating a big event... like an upcoming wedding, a newborn baby, a college graduation, or a well-deserved retirement. Maybe there's a friend facing a new challenge who would appreciate a handmade card with a note of encouragement.

Whatever the inspiration, we'd love to see your card/project. Share your creation for a chance to win a gift certificate. Our challenge winner will receive a gift certificate to the e-tailer of her/his choice.
