JUGs 13...a template challenge

Hey there!  Welcome to the final JUGs challenge of 2009!  Can you believe it?? 

It's "Just Us Girls" here so can we dish a little about templates?  Do you love them?  Have you never tried them?  Are you looking for something new to add to your template stash?  Templates are a wonderful jumping off point to your paper crafting projects.  From gift boxes, bags, party favors and ornaments... templates can really give your creativity a boost.

You can find a previous template challenge here at JUGs #9 for more inspiration and this time around we are so excited to welcome
Kelleigh Ratzlaff

of Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs as our challenge sponsor and guest designer this week!  Welcome Kelleigh!  We are so glad you are here.  Kelleigh offers a huge variety of templates in her store at the Digichick Boutique.  Each one is unique and economically priced at $3.99.  Each download comes in four different file types depending on the program you like to use for printing your project...the most common being a .pdf file that opens in Adobe Acrobat.  EVERYONE can use these.

The Blog Candy:  Kelleigh has generously donated a $15 gift certificate for one lucky challenge participant AND everyone who links up to our challenge in the Mr Linky below will be emailed a coupon code for 40% off when they have a minimum order of $15 (making a $15 order only $9!).  To get your coupon code, email Dana at paperdaydream at aol dot com after you link up via Mr Linky.

The Challenge:  Make a project using a template of your choosing (bonus points in the world of good karma if you use a Kelleigh Ratzlaff template ;) ).  Bonus challenge, make it something BLUE.  (The blue is just for an additional challenge but not neccesary to play.)

Let's PlaY!  Here's a little Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs template inspiration from the creative lady herself and the rest of the Just Us Girls team!

Such beautiful projects and a coupon too, what more could you ask for! Heading over to shop now! :-)

Running late on this challenge...plan to ck out Kelleigh's templates and buy a couple. Your DT's projects are great. My entry is rather simple in comparision to them but did want to participate in your last challenge for 09.

Carla (cmsuto) said...

Awesome challenge, Dana! All the DT samples are beautiful! I made a little cupcake box from one of Kelleigh's templates. It was super easy to use! I hope shades of aqua count as blue!! Thanks for sponsoring, Kelleigh!

Katie Cotton said...

Laura said...

Very pretty stuff, girls! Just gorgeous!

vdutchr said...

Great challenge!

Sue Lelli said...

GREAT challenge! BTW, can you make the names change color in Mr. Linky when we look at them? Some sites have that capability and it makes it easier when you go back to know where you stopped and started! Thanks! Sue

vdutchr said...

I deleted my entry - I am not sure it qualifies as a template.. more of a project

Sue Hester said...

Gorgeous designs, girls!

Diane Burns said...

Hi all, this is my first challenge. My friend, Sue Lelli, directed me to your blog. I love all the creative ideas from all the talented stampers. Nice to get to know you all.

Bronwyn Eastley said...

Wow! I LOVED this challenge and the examples by the team, are truly amazing.

Deb Neerman said...

I love Kelleigh's amazing templates and own several, so it was a pleasant surprise to see this challenge posted. And of course, I HAD to play along!

Thanks so much for a great challenge; and happy New Year wishes to all of you!
