Challenge 4 | Fab Five and a WINNER!
Challenge 5 | Retro Tool - Crimpin' | There is Still Time to Play

Challenge 5 | Retro Tool - Crimpin'

Time to move on to a new challenge for a new year!!


The goal when Jane and Katie created this blog was to get more mileage out of your older stamps. We wanted them so badly and then they begin to collect dust. 

But what about your tools?  Your embellishments?  Your old supplies?  If they are also collecting dust, please pull them out and use them up!!   Our new challenges for the year will ask you to pull them out and use them up!! 

Please remember, that regardless of the challenge, we ask that you always use older stamps.  We prefer older than one year. 


Our first challenge is a tool challenge - break out that old crimper!!  Along with Retro Rubber, use your Crimper to create a project for this challenge.  *Please note that we will accept projects using a scoring tool to create a crimped effect as seen on Claire's card today. 

First, I want to share a project from our Guest - Claudia!!  She was our winner from Challenge 3!



Here is what the Mod Squad created for Challenge 5:

Love all the projects!


I just discovered your blog and can't wait to participate in the challenges! I have so many old stamps that I haven't shown any love in awhile and look forward to getting them inky again.
