CUTplorations November Challenge

Welcome back to the November edition of our relatively new CUTplorations challenge! On the 5th of each month you'll find the inspiration DT playing with the wonderful new line of CUTplorations dies. And we hope you'll join us! How? Use our inspiration photo and die cuts (any brand). Just be sure to use at least one STAMPlorations product on your project. Cards, tags, scrapbook pages, mixed media projects ... all are welcome. Don't have any STAMPlorations products yet? You can always find a free digi here to use.

Ready for our inspiration photo for November? Hang on to your hats. Or umbrellas.

Cuz it's a blustery November day on the blog today. A little aside... my Dad is turning 90 in a couple days and Winnie-the-Pooh (that blustery day bear) made his debut in 1926 too. Thanks to A.A. Milne.

Now, back to our regular programming. Ready to see what the DT has done with this inspiration photo and die cuts?

Can't wait to see your projects! The DT will select three top picks from the gallery to receive a winner's badge and one random winner will receive her pick of any two of the CUTplorations word dies used by the DT in today's post. 

We look forward to seeing your projects in the gallery below. 
Please check out the CUTplorations challenge rules here. The linky below is open until the end of the day November 30th. Hope to see you here.


  1. Happy Birthday to your day! A great age to achieve for sure - thanks for the new challenge for November - have a blessed week!

    1. I meant to type DAD not day! Sorry -- I might be late in asking this but may I send a card? I would love to make one and send it - if you would share an address to send it to - thanks - here is my email address[utb01@att.net] I am good if the answer is no.
