Challenge #1 - Anything Goes

The very first Craft a Scene challenge is Anything Goes!  


That means that you can make any type of project as long as it has a scene.  Please create something new (no back linking) and link it directly to Mr. Linky below.  You may link from your blog post or another online source such as Split Coast Stampers. And the best news is that you may enter up to three times each challenge.


Until the design team starts, Sheree and I have made cards to help inspire you to enter the challenge.  We are both still learning so bear with us.


Sheree created this amazing West Coast scene.  Don't you just love the highlights that she adds!




Nancy created this country scene.  Want to take a walk?




Don't forget about our design team call.  We are accepting expressions of interest until January 10th.  See this post for details.


I bet you are interested to know what the prize is for this first challenge.  Well, we just started and we don't have all our sponsors in place yet, so I put together a few items that everyone can use.




This little package includes 10 sheets of glossy papers (8 white and 2 black), hemp, new Color Box Blender Foams, and Tree Cluster sm 266D.


The prize winner will be chosen by a random number generator and then Sheree and I will select the top three.  All the winners get a badge to add to their blogs.


Okay, so now it is your turn.  You have until Friday, January 27th to create a new scenic project and link it below.  Don't forget to become a follower so that you can keep up-to-date with all our latest news. 


We can't wait to see what you create!!


Happy Stamping!
NancyD and Sheree

Sounds a good project to start with. Could be the one to start this afternoon, once I have finished the baby card. It would all fit nicely with the cards I need to get done this month, anyway. Well done to you for getting things up and running so early in the year. Maggie

woo hoo! cant wait to enter this! I am God willing, going to get inky tomorrow. it surely sounds sooo good to have something to encourage me to get my Stampscapes put - have neglected them for sooo long and know a few of my friends have your button on their blogs - several in UK though I am in Oz, and so the news is getting out will do the same this Wednesday at WOYWW God willing, love Shaz in oz.x PS Thanks too for encouraging me by following my blog.

Colleen said...

I'm really excited about this site. I've done my first one. It pales in comparison to yours though.
Going for more supplies tomorrow!

Mrs A. said...

Found you via Shaz in Oz. So glad I did. I know nothing of scenescapes but eager to learn as one of my resolutions this year is to master new techniques. Hope to participate in this 1st challenge. Off to glean as much info as I can now. Hugs Mrs A.

Victoria said...

I'm really glad to have found your blog as I like the idea of learning together. I hadn't even heard of Stampscapes before! Sorry if this sounds terribly naive but what exactly do you mean by a 'scene'. I have submitted a card that I think meets the requirements but I'm not entirely sure! Thanks very much - and a Happy New Year to everyone, Victoria

Theresa said...

I am back with second entry. Hope that is allowed. Thanks for the challenge.

Sheree said...

No problem Theresa! The scene challenges are proving to be quite popular and motivating our followers so.. you can now submit up to three entries per challenge!
Happy Scene Crafting!

Just testing the comment box.

brenda said...

MY good friend Shaz directed me to your challenge and so pleases she did and it's right up my street.

I've not entered challenges for about a year due to eye problems, but have to make an exception here.

Super inspiration from you all.
