Make It Monday Challenge #3: Glitter Strips with Scor Tape

By February 21, 2011Make It Monday


Happy Monday! We certainly hope we can brighten an otherwise blah day with a new Make It Monday Challenge. This week, Dawn McVey busts out the Scor-Tape and glitter for some spectacular results. We hope that stokes your creative fires and you'll join us this week for the challenge.

 Here's some still shots of her project today. Very feminine and soft.






If you are joining along this week, here are the details concerning the Make It Monday Challenge.

–A new Make It Monday Challenge & video will go up every Monday morning at 9am EST.

–Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge.  Your project must use at least one Papertrey product of some kind as well as glitter applied in a straight line in order to qualify.

–Post your project on your blog, in your gallery or on any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).

–Add your link to our —>InLinkz List<—

–You will have until 7am, Monday, February 28st, to add your link to the list to be eligible to win.  And you can enter as many times as you like.

–We will be tweeting and posting on our Facebook page every night (between 5-9pm EST) highlighting a Featured Project.  These tweets/Facebook postings will just be a shout-out regarding projects that caught our eye.  The tweets/Facebook postings no longer have any special merit regarding the actual contest.

–One randomly selected winner will be chosen from ALL the entries on Monday, February 28st, after 7am.  The winner will be posted here on this blog post, on Twitter and Facebook.  The randomly selected winner will get to select a FREE Papertrey stamp set of their choice!

    I love this technique and use it quite a bit. The blog post says that a qualifying entry “must use at least one Papertrey product of some kind as well as a vellum sentiment strip in order to qualify.” I’m assuming that’s left over from last week and should say to use Scor-Tape and glitter.

    Love the Make it Monday series! Love the color combo Dawn!
    If Nicole is still looking for suggestions for the series is there a chance there could be a tutorial on the Bloom Builders dies? I realize not everyone may have these, but I think for those who do it would be very helpful-and may inspire others to make a little purchase as well! thanks!
