December Monthly Challenge: Joyful Creations

It’s a wonderful time of year…truly a magical time full of family traditions, magical surprises, and gorgeous decorations.  For this Month’s Challenge we want you to share your Joyful Creations…make something that includes the word J.O.Y.

We dedicate this challenge to our amazing General Manager: JOY!!! For extra ‘brownie points’ include her favorite color in your project: Broken China Distress Ink!!!

As usual, our designers are playing along…here is some cool inspiration to jump start your imagination.

Richele Christensen created this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. lil snowman card…he’s stinkin’ cute, isn’t he???


Pam Hooten stamped her JOY into the handle of the spoon on this gorgeous ornament. That Snowflake Rosette is just perfect on her project!

Linda Cain shares this amazing project…in her words: “Well it doesn’t SAY Joy, but it is Joyous.” And, we totally agree!!  We love Linda’s use of Ice Stickles and the gorgeous Graphic 45 Nutcracker Suite Paper.

WOW…our designers just blow us away every time…we can not wait to see more from them, AND from you…so go get busy, you are going to ROCK this challenge!!!!

For a chance to win $50 in Emporium Dollars to spend in the store just add a link to your submission below (your link does not have to be to a blog, it can also be to your SCS gallery…use code IEMC20 or other gallery online!!!)…and, remember, you can enter as many times as you want…so create away!!! Contest begins on December 1, 2012  and ends on December 31, 2012 at midnight…the winner will be randomly chosen and announced on January 1, 2013.

  1. I just finished a joyful tag to go on a layout of a place that brings me great joy (and it brings Joy great joy too!)but it doesn’t say the word joy on it — doesn’t count for the contest right? It is on my blog right now, so feel free to take a look and let me know what you think.
