What is the Belli Challenge you ask?

Each week, I try to give us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms!

With a constant flow of new things coming out, I tend to forget about the other things I have and they quickly become clutter! Come join us in the Belli Challenge and be sure to post your link to this website!

This Weeks Belli Challenge is ENVELOPES. You can make MANY different things with your envelopes...In fact here are a few links for some ideas....

Make a completed project using an ENVELOPES and share the link here in the comments linking to my Blog and CBC25. When you post to Splitcoaststampers or to your Blog, be sure and put CBC25 as the KEYWORD and mention of the challenge - with a link! The winner will recieve an assortment of Designer Paper from me!

Deadline to make a comment with the upload and do the Challenge will be on Monday evening. A random drawing will be held on Tuesday and the winner will be announced on Wednesday!

This weeks winner is Liz's Lovelies to check out several of her FABULOUS puzzle that she made.

You do not need to do something THIS BIG. LOL This was a special project I made for a friend whose mother passed away a few months ago. A group of people she knew wrote notes of prayers and Scriptures on cards for her. They used this combination Teal-turquoise paper. How do you use that to make something elegant? So I had think of a way to make it look nice... My friend Cheryl came up with the idea of making pockets out of envelopes.
I had this small scrapbook and had no clue it would come out so thick. LOL So each page uses an envelope- I decorated with an assortment of papers and Scripture or the remains of a Retired Scrapbook kit from Stampin' Up! This was the Delight in Life Scrapbook kit that SU had for their Sale-a-bration sale 2 years ago.
Here are more details:
Stamp Sets: Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps: God's Word, Encouragement, Jesus Cares
Scrapbook Kit: Delight In Life
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Bashful Blue, Office Accoutrment paper (can't remember exact name, but it is retired)
Accessories: Spiral bound punch, Pretties Kit, 1/16 hole punch, silver brads, Mini glue dots, Red STicky Tape, White Organdy, Blue Striped Ribbon, Making Memory Rub Ons

For more inspiration -Check out these and make a comment too for them please! We all LOVE comments. It is fun to see what everyone is thinking about what we are creating! :)
Some of these people may not have their projects up until later today. Sorry for the delay!

Thank you for stopping by and playing along! Have a great day!
