It's the Holidays Challenge

Hello everyone, Maggi here to host the current challenge at The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog, It's the Holidays.  This is such a busy time of the year that it's hard to find anytime to pursue our paper passion!  With that in mind, I designed a challenge that will hopefully give you some needed crafting time, while making something useful for the holiday season that is upon us! For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic card, tag, gift box, bag, anything holiday related, that you can use over the holidays.   That's it, give yourself a break and sneak off to your studio and craft a while!

The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words 'Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge'. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately, we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

Our amazing Design Team are here to kick you off with their projects for this challenge. Simply click on their blog names to find out more about their makes.

  1. Sandra, I'm sooo excited to see this gorgeous vintage style card in the gallery! You know how much I love it already! The softly colored layers take my breath away! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us here! (Sorry, I still can't comment on IG.)

  2. Michelle (#49), I'm leaving a comment here for you on your IG entry, because I don't have an account. I love the deer leaping across that beautiful vintage background! I purchased that die and haven't used it yet, but you have inspired me to pull it out and to get a jump start on next year's Christmas cards! Thank you for your inspiration and for joining us! Merry Christmas!
