Hello everyone and happy Thursday!!!! Laurel Beard here today bringing you our February Mix it Up Challenge!! WOOT WOOT!!! I LOVE these challenges and am always exited to see what the month brings and this month, we are mixing it up with... Drumroll... PENNY BLACK!!
Before I get on to the challenge and the amazing project inspiration, let's first congratulate the randomly selected participant from our last Pin-Sights Challenge. Remember, YOU could win a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store just by playing along.
And our randomly selected participant (courtesy of random.org) is: Catherine Bowen! Congratulations! Please email me at laurelbeard at me dot com to claim your prize!
A friendly recap: The Mix it Up Challenge is a challenge where we invite one manufacturer to contribute a design that combines Essentials by Ellen stamps/dies with their product to inspire our readers!
I am so excited to share a project by the SUPER talented Therese Calvrid with you all. She is an amazing artist! She is using both Essential By Ellen products and Penny Black products! The supplies she used are linked towards the end of this post! She has made not only one project, but TWO projects for us today!
I know! Seriously! These cards are simply stunning! The coloring and layout on the first (and I love how she did the sentiment) and then the Black/Grey/White color scheme on the second! Simply gorgeous!
