Hello! Happy Friday! Are you ready for another Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge?

This week’s challenge is to create Anything But a Card using a digital image. There are loads of possibilities here! Just to offer a few examples, you can make a gift bag or gift box, or alter a clipboard or a tin or a notebook, or create a scrapbook page, a bookmark or a magnet. So long as you use at least one digital image for the focal point of your project, anything goes! You’re not required to use a Sweet ‘n Sassy digital image, but we do love it when our participants use them (and you get the chance for extra perks if you do – see the Digi Challenge site for more details!).

I decided to try making a mini calendar because I thought if it goes together easily enough, it would be fun to make these as Christmas gifts. Calendar templates can be found pretty easily online; I got mine from the templates forum at Splitcoaststampers.com and then tweaked it to suit my style and to fit an entire year’s worth of calendar months on one page. I figured I’d start off with January, and I thought that one of Sweet ‘n Sassy’s Cocoa Mouse images would be good because there are more than enough Cocoa images to pick one for each month of the year. A lot of people appreciate a hot drink on a cold January day, and so does Cocoa. He’s snuggled up to the cup here to keep warm! I paper pieced the mug sleeve from designer paper that coordinated with the background paper I chose, and the rest of the image was colored with Copic markers.  I slipped this into an old acrylic photo frame that I had here; this allows the calendar to stand on its own on a desk or other horizontal surface.  I can’t remember if I bought the frame at Walmart or Dollar General, but it was really inexpensive.


So, now it’s your turn to make Anything But a Card! Link your project at the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge site by midnight eastern time Thursday, November 8. Remember that for every project you submit throughout November, you will get one entry to be eligible for winning 3 digital images of your choice from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps store! Be sure to play along every week, and to go visit the rest of the design teams’ blogs for more inspiration. Thanks for stopping by today!
