You can begin submitting your cards, layouts or altered projects right now, and our submissions will close at noon Saturday 8/21. Then our voting begins, and concludes on Monday 8/23. The winner of Challenge 9 will receive a $10 gift certificate to Papertrey Ink!

So, let's see what our design team created from their photo inspiration.


Jan made a serendipitous find on her way to making this card. Coincidence or conspiracy ? Check out her odd little story about her inspiration from these beautiful photos. (cue Twilight Zone music...)


Everyone loves a carnival! This week's photo inspiration is perfect to scrap all those photos we have from the carnival. Liz used beautiful carnival themed patterned paper to scrap a gorgeous photo of her son taken at the Royal Adelaide Show. She used a lot of distressing and inking to give her layout a vintage look. Visit her blog for some tips and close ups.


This week Caroline created a hot air balloon on her gypsy using George and Basic Shapes and Walk in My Garden. As a child Caroline would see a hot air balloon and just dream about what it would be like to be in one which is why she chose the "dream" on the front. The inside of her card says: "Everyday is another chance to make your Dreams come true."


The hot air balloons caught Regan's attention in the inspiration photo for this weeks challenge! She decided to use the Tall Tales designer paper by Stampin' Up! to create this adorable layout of her daughter! She did some fussy cutting, tearing, inking and used dimensionals to make this layout stand out! For more details and photos please visit her blog.

Come back tomorrow for three more designer creations!
