Good Morning Stampers!
Today is another Inspiration Thursday. I am sharing projects from my stampers who are taking part in my September Creative Inspiration Calendar Challenge.
At the end of August I sent all my girls a calendar that had a creative challenge for each day of the month and encouraged them to send me pics of their completed challenges, so I could post them to inspire others.
Well...Carole has certainly rose to the challenges! She has completed EVERY daily challenge so far this month! Wow!
She says that she likes the challenge calendar as it motivates her to get into her craft room and use her products for a few minutes every day.
Now I will be honest with you, there were two challenges that I would have bet money that she would not do.....and she did them! Call me impressed!
Ok enough babble I sound like a proud mother hen....here are Carole's beautiful challenge projects:
September 10- Make a card following a sketch:
September 11- make a fun fold card
September 12- Make a Thinking of You card
September 14- make a card using a die
September 15- make a scrapbook layout
September 16- clean your craft room and organize your stuff
September 17- make and mail a card to someone for no reason...just to let them know you are thinking of them
Aren't her projects FABULOUS!
Carole, thanks so much for sharing and inspiring others.
Now...you gals that are playing along and creating....please share your projects...we all want to see what your making!
There is still lots of challenges left this month.....here is the challenge calendar:

Hello Everyone! Welcome to our Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for September!
This month's theme is "Celebrate" - now this can be taken in many, many different directions.....however, I chose to Celebrate Christmas!
And...since I just purchased a fabulous new scrapbook album that holds a whopping 80 8 1/2 x 11 pages I decided to make the first layout for that album!
Here is my layout:
I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Whisper White thick cardstock.
Next I die cut a sheet of Real Red cardstock with the Sweetest Time border dies. I also cut an extra candy and candy cane.
The rest of the sheet was used to create the photo mats:
And here is a close up of the journal greeting that is also cut out and popped up for some added dimension:
And one last look.....
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Good Morning Stampers!
I put out a September Challenge calendar to my stampers. Each day had a different challenge.
Are you sitting down....your going to be amazed by the crafty talents of Carole Anderson:
Friday, Sept 4- the challenge was to make a fun fold....Carole chose a twisted gatefold....how cool is this one:
Saturday, Sept 5- the challenge was to make a sympathy card. Love the quiet elegance of this one:
Sunday, Sept 6- the challenge was to pick 3 colors and make a card- Carole chose Mint Macaron, Cherry Cobbler, and Sahara Sand for her slimline card:
Monday, Sept 7- the challenge was to make a card using a punch. Those little retired guys that fit that punch were fabulous:
Tuesday, Sept 8- the challenge was to make a 3D item, Carole made a Christmas treat holder and a 3D purse. Well done!
Wednesday, Sept 9- the challenge was to make an anniversary card.
Don't you just love how she used all the new in colors on her card:
I hope all her hard work and creativity has inspired you.
Why not join her in some of the remaining challenges this month?
Here is the calendar:
Thanks again Carole; and keep on stamping girls!

Happy Wednesday Stampers!
Welcome to another Around The World on Wednesday Blog Hop!
Today I am hopping around the world, with some FABULOUS stampers and our theme this month is "Tag Team"
Here is our challenge:
Tag Team is the general theme for the September 2020 Blog Hop with a specific focus on creating TWO (2) coordinating projects!
Another fun interpretation for you to get creative with... two coordinating projects is the only requirement.
It's up to you to decide what they will be! You could go with something seasonal or even an occasion if you choose... or something as simple as color coordination are just a few ideas to get you thinking if you don't know where to begin. The sky's the limit with what you can create for this blog hop...
So.....this is what I came up with for this theme:
