The Joy of Sets Challenge Blog February 2019 #josttt002



Hello and welcome to my blog if this is your first visit, welcome back if you've been before.

I am part of a design team for a paper crafting challenge blog created by the lovely Fiona who set up the fabulous The Joy of Sets group on Facebook. Each team member contributes a project each month to the blog and for 2019 the theme for the blog posts is Tic Tac Toe challenges.

Each member gets the chance to choose the Tic Tac Toe blocks for the month and February is mine! I decided to take into account the kind of projects people may be making anyway at this time of year and the themes of products they may have just bought or brought out of hibernation and so I was hugely influenced by February being the month of love, the time of cupid's bows, hearts and flowers when romance is very much in the air with Valentine's Day now being a huge annual event in many countries. So these were my choices:



And this is what I created, going for the three elements of  White, Punch and Lace along the bottom row.



I used a free download, self print DSP here and everything else is Stampin' Up! Oh apart from the little mirror foil squares they come in the packaging of my Primark false nails! Just call me resourceful.

The new butterflies and matching punch are really beautiful.

Do be sure to check out the Joy of Sets Challenge blog if you get a minute and why not subscribe for a monthly fix of themed projects. Even join in and play along by adding a link to your own project made using the Tic Tac Toe box challenge. We all love to see your entries and this month I get to choose the winner.

I have a video tutorial for this project available now by clicking HERE.

To buy any of the products I used which are still available you can go to my online Stampin' Up! store by clicking HERE.

Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great February and may the light of love shine on you/.

  6. Thank you. I think this one was from a suite of free downloads by Hunkydory and I only used a simple ink jet to print them on.
