Creative Challenge

Join me and a community of wonderful stampers for a FREE creative challenge!

How it will work:
The challenge will take place in a private Facebook group. It’ll be FUN but it won’t take a lot of time. It’ll be short bursts of inspiration to get your creative juices flowing, both during the challenge and throughout the year.

Every day for 14 days, I’ll post something fun, either a game, challenge or an idea. Some days I may post more than once! The more you challenges you do, the more chances you’ll have to win prizes! I’ll choose randomly. The more you interact on the Facebook group, the more chances you have to win!

To join our private Facebook Group, you’ll need to first sign up. After you sign up, you’ll get an email with a link to the private facebook group. If you don’t get this email, send me a note at rinastamps@gmail.com.

When does it start?
The Challenge starts Sunday, January 15th 2017 and ends January 28th 2017.

What do people have to say about your challenges?
“I have really enjoyed these 14 days. I am taking away how important to allow time every day to use your creative part of your brain. I am definitely going to use my “comfort” colors more often and the new designs that were shown these two weeks.” – Diane

“What I am taking away is that any day is a good day to be creative. It doesn’t have to be fancy, it can take all day to complete, just as long as I keep at it. Every day can be a creative day.” – Pat

Thank you so much for getting us motivated! I think my favorite thing is that I actually made about 8 cards in 2 weeks! I have been going to bed earlier since that challenge and I am trying to mix up my colors more and not always use my favorites. Thanks for the reminder that it is so important for me to make time for something I enjoy.” – Kari

It was great connecting with everyone in the challenge. We are all so different but yet share the same creativity. I took away to just go and stamp. No purpose needed, just get creative. I often think I need an agenda or huge block of time and need to finish projects. Rina says not so, and I trust her 🙂. Yea for new friends across the USA. We’re like pen pals from elementary school days.” – Margo

I was happy to be able to check in and connect with all the creative people in this group daily.” – Jan

I loved the sense of community and connection! It was a pleasure seeing everyone’s beautiful cards, and hearing new ideas from the awesome folks that participated.” – Patricia

“[I learned to] just doing SOMETHING . Anything creative. Even if it’s one card, one layout, something creative at least once a week. This challenge helped me to see that even if it’s one small thing every week, I’m being creative and I really enjoy paper crafting. I’m going to strive to work on my paper crafting every Wednesday. Even if I only do one small project. That’s enough. I’m creating.” -Lori

Prizes!
The more you interact on our Facebook site, the more chances you have to win! I’ll pick winners randomly at the end of the challenge. (Note: prizes can only be mailed to US residents.)

Is there a fee?
No way!  I want us to use this forum to grow our creativity and support each other.  Just have fun!

Why?
I decided to do this challenge because so many of us are pulled in a million different directions. If we are lucky to have a few minutes to ourselves, we are often too tired to be creative or work on our hobbies.  I want to encourage of all of us (me included!) to not just look at other people’s creations, but to make our own.  Whenever I actually sit and create, it always puts me in a great mood and gives me energy in every other aspect of my life.

What supplies will I need?
You’ll need basic stamping supplies that you already own.  If you are new to stamping and don’t already own supplies, send me an email at rinastamps@gmail.com and I’ll help you get started.

What if I don’t have time to make anything?
Please join anyway!  Many of the games are easy and you’ll still come away feeling inspired!  If you don’t do any projects during the challenge, you’ll still enjoy the inspiration, comradeship, and seeing other people’s projects.

Can I join if I’m a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator?
Since there are currently over 150 members in the Challenge, I’m really sad but we can’t open it up to new Demonstrators since our capacity is limited. Anyone currently a Demonstrator who is in the challenge is grandfathered in!

Looking forward to seeing your creations.

Please send an email (rinastamps@gmail.com) or message me if you have any questions.
Love,
Rina
