X for Out of the BoX - NO Squares allowed!

Good Morning Everyone!  Michelle here and I'm still recovering from the amazing number of entries we had for our Winter Wishes Challenge, wow!

Our theme for this challenge is "Out of the BoX" so we would love to see your non-square creations!  That's right, no squares allowed!  We have two fantastic sponsors for this challenge:




Prize: 2 Shape EZ templates of winners choice.
Shape EZ is a product originating from the desire to be different.  The templates were inspired by one unforgettable template and has become an opportunity to share specialty shaped cards with everyone.   Every template is offered in 300 dpi in SVG,JPEG,PNG and PDF files so no matter your preference, they are perfect for everyone.  No cutter needed, instructions included and are only limited by your imagination.  




Prize: 2 Digi images of winners choice.

A little bit about Zlatoena: My mom and I used to make handmade cards and that`s how everything started. I'm last year graphic design student and I have always had to passion to draw and doodle and one day someone came with the idea for digi stamps and .. 3 years since then.. I am creating digital stamps and.. The Cats Pajamas Rubber stamps are producing my designs into real stamps.. and I am as happy as can be.


Before you get your creative cap on, take a look at the incredible creations from our very talented Design Team!

Hello!  My name is Krista Smith.
After opening up my digi shop in the beginning of September 2011, I've been busy filling orders and drawing new designs:).  I am really thrilled and very humbled that people are so receptive to my designs and seem to enjoy coloring them a lot!  I am so inspired by these amazing colorists!!  I have met so many wonderful, talented ladies through this business and look forward to building new friendships, too!   My personal blog,Saturated Canary, is filled with bits of my family life, artwork, and a slight obsession with fashion;). I also run a new challenge/ inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge with my amazing design team.  I'd love to meet you and be inspired by your own creations!  Do stop by and say hello!:)
