a2z Scrapbooking January 2017 Challenge

colorful-kids-happy-new-year-2016-images-wishes-quotes-hdphoto source

Happy New Year to all of you!!  I can’t believe it’s 2017 already!!  Just the other day I was writing the 2016 new year blog post!!  I feel like we blinked and 2017 was here!  LOL!!

While I have your attention I wanted to take this time to let you know about the cause that a2z Scrapbooking supports!

Camp Gluten Freedom started in 2010 as a vision for Celiac and Food Allergic children to have a safe camp experience. Every child deserves the chance to go to camp, and their gluten-free or other allergen avoidance diet shouldn’t stand in their way! They can accommodate children with dietary restrictions during any camp session, but have put together some special meals and options for an integrated camp for gluten-free/allergen free children from ages 7-17.  The 2017 session is from June 11-17.

So thank you so much for your continued support! It goes a long way! We hope to have another great year!

Now onto our new challenge for the new year!

Our new challenge this month is “Anything Goes”! All you have to do is use any Hero Arts product on your project. Be creative with this challenge.

anything-goes

Please be sure that your project contains at least ONE main HERO ART Product as the focal element!

Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace Giveaway

Hello everyone!!  Kymona here with a super cute Baby’s Footprint Memory Necklace project for you!! I have to admit, I had so much fun with this months challenge, Anything but a Card.  It forced me to step out of my comfort zone.

Take a look at what I created for you today:

baby-footprint-memory-necklace-copy

I love how this necklace turned out.  So pretty and elegant at the same time.

When I was contemplating on what to create, I looked at all of the Hero Art stamp sets that I own.  When my hand fell on the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set, it hit me.  The tiny feet will fit inside the circle frame of the Heart Key Tray. Which I thought was perfect since it had two hearts on it. One for the mother and one for the baby!!

Here is how I created this necklace:

  1. I found a scrap piece of watercolor paper that I created awhile ago.
  2. I stamped the tiny feet on the piece of scrap with Hero Arts Black Ink and let it dry.
  3. Then I added glue to the back of the glass piece and pressed it on top of the tiny feet.
  4. Then I cleaned away all of the excess glue with Q-tip.
  5. Once the glue dried, I cut around the glass.
  6. I placed a piece of super stick tape inside the heart tray.
  7. I added the glass piece to the tray.
  8. Then I added the ball chain to finish off the necklace.

So what do you think?  Wouldn’t it be nice to either get or receive a necklace like this. I hope this month has challenged you to really step out of your comfort zone and use your crafting supplies to create something other then a card!

Giveaway time

One lucky winner who leaves a comment below letting me know what they are looking forward to in 2017 will win this necklace.  The winner will be chosen at random to give everyone a fair chance of winning.  The giveaway will end January 1, 2017 at 11:59pm est!  

Awesome right!!  For those of you who do not win, If you would like to purchase any Hero Arts items from the store please head on over to the store and use the coupon code KYMONA15 to get 15% off your purchase.

Don’t forget the challenge ends in a couple of hours and I would love to see some of you tackle this project.  Our January 2017 Challenge starts tomorrow at 8am, you will not be disappointed!!

Supplies used:

Hero Arts So Sorry Stamp and Cut set
Hero Arts Black Ink

Small glass
