CCAT1 - Our First Challenge!

Introducing our first color challenge - inspired by Chico's:

Dare to Wear these Colors:  
Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Pacific Point 
(These are Stampin Up color names, but feel free to use other papers that match these colors.)

Aren't these luscious Fall colors?  Don't forget to post your designs below.  On September 2 (note change in date)*, we will randomly generate a top model, and award our most prestigious badge of honor, and a fashion treat!

NOTE:  If you load your picture to an online gallery, please add CCAT1 to your image and a link back to our challenge blog.

Here are our design ideas:

* We decided to change the date so we can get onto an easy-to-follow schedule.  Since this is so early in our blog-planning stage, we did not think this would upset anyone's plans to contribute.  

So, for future reference, our plan is to post a new challenge on the 15th and 30th of each month.  Moving this deadline date, will allow us to keep within that schedule - plus, we cannot wait to show you our next challenge!  Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to our Crafty Catwalk Challenge

Welcome to our little home on the web.  We are 4 crafty, busy moms across the miles with limited time to create.  What better way to stay connected and push our creative energy than to challenge each other... with a deadline!

So, we hope you will join us on our journey and maybe even submit a challenge.  We have been working on the foundation of this challenge throughout the summer, and while it is being launched at the end of August, please know that any similarity to any other blog or challenge is completely unintended and accidental.  We are inspired by many, but our ideas are not copied, unless proper credit is given, I assure you.

With that, let me welcome you to our Crafty Catwalk.  This is our vision:

The fashion industry offers so many trends that inspire and can be translated into our crafty creations.  We plan to be inspired and inspire others with those sights, textures and trends in our paper crafting world.  We will create designs and hope that you will walk the catwalk with us and perhaps entertain the idea of becoming a top model!

Our challenges will be open during a 2 week fashion show (as busy moms, we felt this would help other busy moms, as well!)   Feel free to incorporate up to 3 other challenges, if you would like.  Link your picture using the linking tool below each challenge. 

Our challenges will likely follow this pattern (but, we reserve the privilege to switch things up in our little world):
  • Fashion Show Challenge - Week 1 & 2:   Dare to Wear these Colors (A color challenge to try.)
  • Fashion Show Challenge - Week 3 & 4:   Shopping Chic (Use those supplies that you purchased - we'll make a suggestion.)
  • Fashion Show Challenge - Week 5 & 6Style a While - (Add something special to the card - it will be a technique for the week.)
  • Fashion Show Challenge - Week 7 & 8:  Impress with Less - (Create a simple look with just simple cards!)
