We are the special guest Sponsor over at More than Words this month.

A few of our design team member’s participated in their November challenge and created some amazing projects showcasing our products for the reveal.

The challenge:

Word Inspiration – FUTURE
What does the word FUTURE inspire you to create? You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Since words are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know how this month’s word stimulated your creative process, so please do explain how it inspired you!

Creative Challenge – STARS
The future is bright, as bright as the stars in the sky that we wish upon! For this month’s creative challenge, we would like to see those STARS on your project. You can choose to make your project twinkle, sparkle or shine if you desire, but most importantly we must see at least one star shape on your creation.

The Main Challenge is open to layouts, canvases, art journal pages and planner pages only. No cards, tags, ATCs or OTPs are accepted.

Please head over to the More than Words website for the full challenge and complete guidelines.

Now onto what our Fabulous team members created!!!


One of the most immediate events in my FUTURE are the upcoming holidays. As a grandmother, I especially enjoy seeing things through my grandchildren’s eyes. I always wonder which traditions will be passed down through the generations … and what new ones may come along. The inspiration word Future prompted me to scrap this photo of my sweet little grandson who hopefully will someday be a Santa to his own little family.  My STAR shapes are evident in both the stenciled background, multiple chipboard star shapes and the Flair.  Here is a list of Creative Embellishments products that I used: Chipboard, Falling Stars BorderSpiral TreeChristmas Sentiments word set; Stencil, Falling Stars Stencil;  Stamps, Crackle StampGrunge Music Note Border Stamp; Flair, Shine Flair Gold.

I think about the future every day. I’m especially excited to see what the future holds for my daughters, who are a bright light in my life. I incorporated stars into my design in several ways; with a stencil, a stamp, and with chipboard and other star-shaped embellishments. I used letter stickers to include the word future in my journaling, which reads: No matter what the future holds, I know you both are going to shine. Creative Embellishments supplies: Star Bokeh Stencil, Grunge Stars Stamp, Nested Stars Chipboard, Star Light, Star Bright Chipboard Words.

I’m about to make one of the life changing choices in my life and for me it’s been overwhelming, Retirement.  For this challenge I chose to think of something in my near future and that would be the change of seasons.  From a colorful Fall to a snow covered Winter.  I live in a part of America where I have four seasons and I love them all for different reasons.  Winter is a time of rest after playing hard and working hard throughout of beautiful Summers and Falls.  Now I know retirement will be great but it’s still a big decision.  I’ve been working for the same company for 36 years and it’s almost like home away from home.  However, I’m one of the last of the baby boomers working with millennials and it’s time for me to give them some space. Creative Embellishments Supplies: Flourish 13 and Flourish 15.

What does the future hold? For me its watching my grand daughter grow.. She will be a year old on the 25th of November and she has been such an enormous joy in our lives. For my layout, I wanted to showcase her transitioning from crawling to walking, which is happening in near future.. for the stars, I used the star stencil and texture paste. I also used lots of chipboard elements: Vintage Flourish set, Mini Circle panel, Fairy wings, large Clock Face , Milestone word set and the Twinkle Star stencil. 

Marilyn: This challenge inspired me to create a canvas because I think of the FUTURE with hope and happiness. I was also inspired by this quote by Jim Rohn: ‘Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.’ For that reason, I added a lot of chipboard STARS to represent an illuminated future full of opportunities, and of course, the creative challenge. 
Marilyn created her exquisite canvas by using the Fairy Dust 2 stencil
and awesome chipboard designs Social Hash Tags and Star Pieces.
