December 2013 Challenge

All of November's Winners are announced here.

Our theme is always Anything Goes: use glitter, embossing powder, and/or flocking.

Use any image, digital or a rubber, to create your submission.  We'd love it if you used one of the Sparkle N Sprinkle's images and become a Featured Artist. 

Hi everyone, I'm Anne, one of the SNS Designers, and I'm honored to be taking over the duties of the Creative Challenge blog.  If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at icinganne@yahoo.com.

Beginning this month, we have made a few changes (to make it even easier for you).  They are posted in the SNS Challenge Guidelines page tab at the top, but the main things are:
  • The challenge will now go from the 1st - 25th of each month.
  • There will be a total of 4 winners.  The SNS Designers will now choose the Top 3, each of whom will win 2 digi images of your choice.  Plus, a Random winner will be chosen with the help of random.org.  This person will win 1 digi image.  All winners will also get a badge (click on the"Did You Win" button on the left sidebar or click on the "Winner Badges" in the page tabs above) to download your badge so you can proudly display it.
  • Honorable Mentions - this category is for those wonderful projects that were really good, but didn't quite make it into the Top 3.  You will also be able to download your own badges.
  • Winners and Honorable Mentions will be posted on the last day of the month going forward.  
  • Featured Artists will be prominently displayed in the last day of the month post as well.  To be a Featured Artist, all you need to do is use a SNS digi or rubber image in your project.  Your projects will also be proudly posted to the SNS Facebook page.  NOTE: Please leave a comment on our blog if you use one of our images, so we will know to look for it.
To check out all the wonderful digis that Sparkle N Sprinkle offers, click here.


The designers' projects use SNS's latest release images from  "Geraniums", which is 20% off until December 3rd.  Use the code DEC20 in the Comments section to receive the discount.

For another chance to win one of these sets, please join us for the Mystery Designer Party being held on the SNS Blog going on now (the winner will be announced on 12/3, so hurry on over- after checking out all the great projects from the designers, of course).  

Or sign up for the Technique Video Kit Club and get it in the kit.

If you click on the Designer's name, it will take you to their blog post for directions on how they created their project.  The directions can also be found in the SNS Art Gallery.  You may search by category, or type in the Designers name in the Search box and you can quickly find the project you're looking for.

Now it's your turn to get creative and link up your projects.  You can enter as many times as you'd like, as long as they are new projects - no backlinking (see guidelines).  You have until Dec 25th and the winners will be announced on Dec 31st.  Happy Crafting!
