The January challenge is hosted by Janet this month and here are some of the details, but please come check it out over at ScrapMuse!
In her words.....
My challenge for you this month is all about the embellishments. I would like you to make your own by cutting them out of patterned paper. It's a way to use what you already have at hand.
Another thing that I would like you to use to embellish your page is chipboard die cuts or chipboard stickers or if you don't have any of these then any kind of chipboard will do. The theme is totally up to you.
A couple of reminders, layouts must be new and posted in the ScrapMuse Gallery under "January 2010 Contest". Please also link them to the challenge thread so we can all enjoy them. You will be playing for a prize pack valued at $25.00. The winning layout will also be featured on our blog. The design team will select the winning layout by voting for their favorite layout based on the layout itself and by following the challenge as described. The deadline for this contest is January 31 at midnight, EST time.
Have fun! Can't wait to see what you create.
