Hello Friends. After much thought the Stamp-A-Holic's Design Team has decided to close our challenge blog. It was a difficult decision but please know that we have enjoyed creating our projects and especially your participation.

We are bringing you this last Challenge 182 and invite you to participate. This is a 3-D non card challenge to create a cover for a notepad. Any size of notepad that you may have on hand. These make great gifts and are always fun to create and receive.

This final challenge will run through to midnight, Thursday August 18th. Please label your project as "SAH 182" and link it back here with Linky Tools.

Thanks so much again for playing along with us, we have enjoyed visiting your blogs and galleries.

Scrapbook Water Challenge 181

Greetings from Mitzi in HOT Michigan! Let me tell you, it is hot even by the lake. Hope you are getting some respite somehow, somewhere.

I would like to go with a theme for this week's scrapbook page. The theme is "water." Think of how you use water: cooling off at a lake, watering your garden, having fun at a water park, running through the sprinkler (OK, maybe not you, but your kids/grandkids.. haha.) How do you use water?

You can use any layout, any colors, any number of pictures. Add an appropriate title. Have fun with this!

Here is what the design team did to give you inspiration.

Come join us! We'd love to see your scrapbook pages!

3D Challenge 179

Nancy here with this gift idea! What a neat gift for someone to say ‘thank you’ or a great hostess gift. ‘Snack & a Movie’ has microwave popcorn, soda & a movie rental gift certificate. It takes approximately 30 minutes to make this and believe me – the thought goes a long way! I used 5 ¼” x 12 and added a 3” piece to make it long enough to go around the 2 liter bottle.(Paisley Petals DSP 122367) This complete ensemble uses only one piece of 12x12 DSP and 1 sheet of 8 ½ x 11 Bravo Burgundy cardstock!

The alphabet is Lovely Letters (115030), the mat is punched using the postage punch. I made a pouch for the popcorn and gift certificate and ‘tied’ it altogether using 1 ¼” Pumpkin Pie ribbon. It’s one of those HAVE FUN projects. I challenge you to make any type GIFT idea!

You have been alotted 45 minutes to complete this challenge. Come play along.
