Stampin' Up!

Welcome to the first July Stampin’ Up! Makeover Monday Challenge.  Although I had every intention of posting a challenge and announcing last month’s winner last week, as I had just gotten home from vacation, it unfortunately didn’t end up happening, so be sure to read to the end of this post, because I’ll be announcing the winner today.

The purpose of Stampin’ Up!’s makeover Monday challenge is to take a totally or mostly non-Stampin’ Up! card and make it over using all Stampin’ Up! products. It doesn’t have to be a card, it can be a 3D item or scrapbook page as well. Colors and accessories can change, layout has stay pretty close to the same (i.e. it has to still be recognizable as the same layout). Post your card to your blog or to splitcoaststampers, link here, then post a comment here and link to your post.  You can enter as many samples and as many times as you want in a month.  At the beginning of each month, I randomly draw a winner from the previous month’s entries.

Today’s makeover card is based on THIS CARD, that was created by Lauren Meader. You can see a full listing of supplies I used below.

Okay, on to today’s winner…….drumroll please…………and the winner of the June Stampin’ Up! Makeover Monday Challenge issssss……Michelle Ip!  You can see Michelle’s card HERE. Congratulations Michelle!  Please email me at [email protected] with your complete mailing address, and I will mail your prize out to you.
