And now for Challenge #42:
Tic Tac Toe - Using At Least One Stampsmith Stamp - Plus an Announcement!!

In March, we asked for challenge theme suggestions and you sure came through!! This month we feature our first Tic Tac Toe challenge as suggested by Alison!  Thank you, Alison!  To play along, just choose any straight line across our Tic Tac Toe board, below.  Then create your project using the three items along your straight line!  We hope you'll invite a friend or two to play along for your chance to win $21 toward your choice of Stampsmith stamps!

And before we reveal our Design Team inspiration for this project, we would like to congratulate Paula Tidman (aka Ephemera) on being selected as our very first Guest Designer!  Paula will be sharing her gorgeous projects with us throughout June, July and August!  We know you will be as inspired by her work as we are!

Speaking of inspiration.... the design team has shared some wonderful projects to get you started with this month's Tic Tac Toe challenge!

  1. WOW what gorgeous projects ladies, so much inspiration, so looking forward to being a guest designer. xx

  2. Is it safe to assume that the straight lines can also go diagonally?

    1. Yes, Andrea, any straight line, be it vertical, horizontal or diagonal.

  3. Lovely projects from the whole team - I'm so chuffed you used the Tic Tac Toe idea... and I'll be home by mid-May and re-united with my Stampsmith stamps, so I'll be along to play then!! Fabulous to see that Paula will be GDing over the summer - her work's amazing.

  4. Your DT samples all have the wow factor, such a talented team. Congratulations Paula on your GD time, I can't wait to see your samples. Julia x X X

  5. Gorgeous DT inspiration, and congratulations to the winners and Paula! Xx

  6. That was a great entry of the Rosie the Riveter stamp, the We Can Do It campaign was iconic during the World War II and is a big part of history. I like your challenge, there are a lot of possible options and even more ideas. I am glad that the diagonal line question was already asked.
