Do You Need a Challenge??

Do you need a challenge? Lacking inspiration?? You need to look no further than the Magazine Monday Inspiration over at Papercrafterscorner. Every week, my friend, Stephanie, posts inspiration from a magazine. Here is this week's

Here is what Stephanie has to say:

First, if those happy colors don’t cheer you up, I don’t know what would!
Second, the 60s & 70s era colors are just too cool, man.
Third, the variety of fonts, shapes and layouts should make it easy for everyone to find at least one thing that lights their creative fire.
And finally, these four being shown together demonstrates how you can use the same basic layout (framed drawing/illustration surrounded by a solid color and topped off with a bold header) and add different colors and elements to create a variety of moods and communicate different stories.

What do you think?
Will this week’s cover selection be a challenge or easy for you?
Whatever inspires you this week, we can’t wait to see what YOU create!

This week’s magazine covers are loaded with inspiration:
  • Color Combinations
  • Hiding the Main Theme (The Happy Mag for Kids) Among the Other Elements
  • Doodles
  • Illustrations
  • Patterns and Shapes
  • Typeface Options
  • Framing
  • or perhaps something else spoke to you?
The deadline for submitting your papercraft projects is Saturday at midnight (central). That means you have five full days to create, submit and WIN! And, as a reminder, this papercrafting challenge is not just open to cards or scrapbook layouts (which have both been popular entry categories), but to ALL papercrafted creations! - See more at:

    I wanted to stop by and thank you for the lovely comment you left on my final Moxie Fab World blog post, Jean. I had such an incredibly good time in the Moxie Fab World, and I'm so glad I got to know you there!
