To claim your prize:
Please email us at with your mailing info no later than Fri., October 5th, 2012 and put "September Monthly Challenge" in the heading.


Now let's take a look at our new challenge.


This month is fun!!
Who doesn't love all the colors of the fall season?

This month we want you to create:
  • a layout or card using the color combo (pictured above) as your inspiration
  • you must use at least 75% Imaginisce product
  • Deadline: submissions are due October 25th, 2012

An Imaginisce collection of your choice.


Let's take a look at what some of our Design Team members have created for this challenge.

 The non-traditional Halloween colors found in the Monster Mash Collection make it easy to transition into projects for Fall or Thanksgiving.
I love that there are plain pumpkins within the collection that also allows you to create fun things for Fall!  Adding texture, such as burlap twine and felt ric-rac, helps to lend that cozy fall-ish fell.

Supplies:Monster Mash: Enchantments 12x12 Paper; Tricks & Treats 12x12 Paper;
Haunted Forest 12x12 Paper; Magic Words 5 x 12 Sticker Stacker and Chipboard Treats 5 x 12 Chipboard Sticker

I love this color combination and the best part is that the papers included in the new Monster Mash collection have a lot of them in them! I decided to create a little basket to hold an apple. I thought these would make a nice favor to have at each person's place at Thanksgiving. 

The apples I put in the photo are actually from a recent apple-picking adventure. (That little one is the only one the rugrat would pick!)

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Monster Mash collection (Imaginisce); Sticker: Boo-ti-ful Friends Sticker Stacker (Imaginisce); Digital Cut File: Basket (Silhouette)

To use all the colors from the challenge, I found a bunch of "B" sides of Imaginisce patterned papers that went along with the color scheme. In order to get each color represented I wanted to use a strip of each. I then decided to build a layer "cake" by stacking layers of varying sizes and rounding the upper corners. A die cut, stacked journaling sticker and fabric sticker and some May Arts ribbon were the "Icing" on the cake!

Supplies: Imaginisce patterned papers, Hello Cupcake Die Cut, stacked journaling sticker and Fabric sticker, May Arts trim

This month color challenge inspire me to create this "fall" themed layout.  It was really quick. simple and fun!
The Monster Mash collection was the perfect fit this photo of my son.

Supplies: Imaginisce Monster Mash Collection; Haunted Forest, Pick of the Patch & Enchantments Papers,  Ghoulish Delights die cuts and Magic Word Sticker Stacker.

When I saw the color and photo prompt, it felt very fall-like to me in a non-traditional way. I love pears for fall. They often get pushed to the side by the apple, but I love using pears for an unexpected twist on fall. This card would be a perfect fall smile for a friend.

SUPPLIES: Imaginisce Happy Harvest pattern paper, card stock, white gel pen, Cameo and silhouette store die cut (pear)

The colors were perfect for a fall layout, and matched very well with the "Monster Mash" line. My son absolutely adored the pumpkin patch and hayrides last year, so I wanted to scrap that memory. Luckily, the Monster Mash line is full of pumkins and fall colors, so it's perfect for these types of layouts.

Supplies: Paper, Layered Stickers, Chipboard Stickers: Imaginisce (Monster Mash), Tool: I-Top, Brad Daddies, Vine Flourish: Flourish With A Bling, Stapler: Tim Holtz, Lace: American Crafts, Foam Letters: American Crafts, Sticker Letters: My Little Shoebox, Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts, Flowers: Prima Marketing,, Fall Leaves: Prima Marketing, Marker: SHarpie: Chalk Ink: Tsukineko. 


We would absolutely love to see what you can create for this challenge.
