December Creative Crew Challenges

Here's the lineup of challenges for the December Creative Crew Gallery.

December is often a crazy, busy month for so many people! It can be a time of joy or a time of sadness, it is a time of family or of missing family. December is also national read a new book month, a fabulous campaign to promote and encourage reading something new. It is a perfect opportunity to break out of the habits and routines that we so often get comfortable with, and implement something totally different that will benefit both you and your family. This is the last month for our current crew and I'd like to make this month cozy, warm, comfortable, and relaxing, so my challenge to you this month is "Comfort & Joy"

CCREW1212DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- DSP/Color Focus: In honor of "read a new book" month, show us how you use the First Edition Specialty Paper.

CCREW1212CF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Catalog focus: The Cookie Press (don't panic if you don't have the Cookie Press, there is an option!) The old demo adage is "show it and they will buy it" so for me my December class is to use the Cookie press - BUT I'm also doing a cookie exchange. We'll make cookies with the cookie press, but each person is asked to bring just 1 dozen homemade cookies of their choice with them. So this challenge is, to go bake some cookies, use the cookie press if you have it, if you don't have it then make any cookie and then make a "recipe card" card & cookie plate to show a simple giftable and to share your recipe. (Let's face it, it's Christmas you're going to have to make a cookie or candy or dessert at some point!)

CCREW1212HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Holiday focus: Comfort Packaging, show us Big Shot boxes, the Kraft gift boxes (pg 161) show us treat packaging (page 15 of the mini) show us bags & Paper Bows!

CCREW1212SF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- Scrapbook focus: In the spirit of keeping it simple, show us a page made with the Simply Scrappin' Kits OR use the new Divided Page Protectors. Your choice of colors, themes, and styles!
