The New gel-a-tins Monthly Challenge!

This month we're going to start a new feature here on the gel-a-tins blog.  I'm going to challenge you to use your gel-a-tin stamps on a project in a different way every month.  You'll need to link your project up at the end of the post and I'll do a random drawing at the end of the month for a winner!

First, let's talk about this month's challenge!

I thought for this first one, I'd ask you to use your gel-a-tin stamps to make the embellishments for your project!  I think sometimes we get used to just using stamps to add a sentiment to a card and forget how useful they can be.  So, use those stamps as your main embellishment on your page!

Here's what I did for this month's challenge:


I used the Super Star stamp set to make the embellishments for this layout.  This is one of my favorite sets and I love the way my layout came out using nothing but stars and some small alpha stickers.

(You may remember from a post earlier this month that the Super Star set is on sale for $12.99 this month.  If you need some gel-a-tins stamps to use for the challenge, this is a great set to grab right now!)

I bet you're wondering what you'll win now, right?  :)  How about the very cute new Thanksgiving set our DT has been using?  Cute, right?  You'll be able to get your fall craft on!

Rules:
One entry per person.
Must link project up through the widget in this post, and project must use only gel-a-tin stamps (no other manufacturers stamps, please).
Projects are due by midnight EST on August 30, 2011.  Winner will be selected by random drawing and announced on August 31, 2011.

I hope you'll play along with us every month!  Have fun and good luck!
