January Challenge 1/17

Hello and welcome to our first official Challenge Blog post!  We’re so excited to start this new chapter and cannot wait to see all of your amazing creations!

For this month’s challenge, we have a very special guest who I’m so lucky to call a close friend, the ever fabulous Laurel Beard. She’s been such an inspiration and a great resource in starting this challenge so THANK YOU, Laurel!!

The prize for this challenge will be a $50 gift certificate to our shop!


Since this is The Ton’s anniversary month, we wanted a theme that reflects the festivities so we chose the cue word “Celebrate”.  Our team and Laurel have created some amazing inspiration projects for this challenge using our new release items.  This post will be updated this week to reflect the new sets from the release!


To participate in our challenge, create a paper crafting project based on the theme “Celebrate”. You may use our team’s cards for inspiration but it’s not required!

  1. You must use a Ton product as the main focal point of your card or tag.
  2. Display the cue word/inspiration photo on your blog post and include a link to this challenge in the body of your post.
  3. There is no limit to the number of projects you wish to enter into the challenge.
  4. The winning project will be chosen based upon detail, composition and aesthetics.
