SAF 2017: Take Ten Warm Up Challenge

By August 25, 2017General

Is everyone ready to get this party started?!?!? We are so glad you're here!


We thought there couldn't possible be a better way to get started than with a Take Ten Warm Up challenge! I know what you're thinking…"I have to make a card in ten minutes???"

No, we're not asking you to do that, but we have broken the steps down into ten minute increments so you have a few time constraints to help you get things done quickly and get your creativity flowing! 

  • Select one of the TEN inspiration photos/color schemes from below.
  • Take TEN to sketch your card and make a plan.
  • Use TEN to collect supplies, trim paper, etc.
  • Then TEN more to actually create and assemble your project.
