August Challenge 8/17


Hello and welcome back to our Challenge Blog post!  Let’s kick off today’s post by announcing our July Mood Board Challenge results!


The winner of our July Mood Board Challenge is… Marge!


We chose Marge’s beautiful card created with a variety of our sets (Retail Therapy, Marvelous Perfumes, Pretty Mail, Sending Peonies and Haute Stacks).  We love how she created a similar layout to our Mood Board to create this chic and fashionable card!

Congratulations, Marge! Please email us at to claim your gift certificate and details on being our guest designer for our September Challenge!



Here are three additional projects that especially stood out to us:

Judy created a beautiful Wave card with a soft pink background inspired by one of the photos from our mood board.


Gloria created a pair of fun heart shaped floral cards for her entry using our Mini Wild Florals.

Mac Mable’s pretty tag caught our eye as she incorporated several elements from our mood board to create this lovely project using our Summer Blooms, Anemone wishes and Peony Cluster sets.

All of the entries from our Mood Board Challenge were so amazing and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in last month’s Challenge!

For this month’s new challenge, we have a fun cue word: SUMMER!


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


To participate in our challenge, create a paper crafting project based on the theme “SUMMER”. 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 on your post and include a link to the challenge in the body of your post.
  3. Link your card to the new link up tool each month. 
  4. There is no limit on the number of cards/tags you wish to enter into the challenge.
  5. The winning project will be chosen based upon detail, composition and aesthetics.
  6. Challenge winners and Honorable Mentions will be announced during the introduction of the subsequent challenge.
  7. Winners will be invited to be a guest designer for the next challenge.
  8. This challenge will close on August 31 at 11:55pm EST.

So let’s check out the projects by our team and our guest designer for this month! Returning this month as our fabulous guest is Jill Taylor!
