Let's Get This Party Started!

Hi Stampers!

Are you ready to get this party started?!  Well Candace and I have been hard at work getting everything ready for our debut Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  And we are sooooo excited to get started! 

We've invited a few talented stampers to be on the Design Team with us.  Next week Thursday, we will reveal who they are.  And then, on Thursday, May 6th we will have our first ever Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!  So be sure to come back and visit us and hopefully you'll be inspired enough to want to stamp with us too!  So let's get this party started!!

The Beach Baby that started it all!

Hi Stampers!

So you may be wondering why, with all the millions of stamping challenges already available, would anyone want to start another stamping challenge blog.  Well this is the reason:

A friend from church asked me to make some baby shower invitations that would coordinate with this adorable table setting from the Hostess With The Mostess blog.  It was so exciting to be inspired by a party theme, that I thought it would be a great inspiration challenge for my fellow stamping challenge addicts!  So a spark was lit.  Then I chatted about it on my blog, Krystal's Cards.  One day, I got an email from Candace Lawlor saying how she thought it was a great idea for a stamping challenge and did we want to team up?  Well, that spark turned into an all out forest fire!  We started emailing back forth and pretty soon, The Stampin' Celebration was born! 

And those baby shower invitations?  Well here's what I came up with:

And what's a party without some party favors?

And don't forget the party banner!

So here we are!  Our first challenge will be Thursday, May 6th.  So make sure to come back, meet our Design Team, and play along in the first ever Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  We want to inspire you to create, share, and have FUN!  Let the party begin!
