Our Creative Corner - Try a NEW Technique

Hello OCC friends! We're so happy you have stopped by. Thanks to everyone who came by last week and special thanks to those who stayed to play in our challenge! We're glad you sorted through your stash and showed some love to previously neglected supplies and tools. We have another fun challenge for you this week, but before we tell you about it, we want to share a wonderful entry from last week's challenge. Our featured designer this week is Birgit and here is her beautiful sample from last week's challenge. Please take a moment to stop by her gallery to see more of her awesome work.

This week, our February host, Linda Coughlin, is challenging us to try a new technique. We all stay in our comfort zone way too much, but it really is fun to try something new. Our challenge to you this week is to try out something that you have never done before. Surely there is a technique that has caught your eye and you've been wanting to try for yourself ~ Now is the time! We can't wait to see your new creations, if you're stumped for a new technique, check out the Resources on SplitcoastStampers or the Tutorials on Papercraft Planet.

Remember, there is no time limit on our challenges. Please feel free to participate whenever you are able. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave us a comment linking to your project so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.

Here are the samples our designers made this week with their new techniques. Be sure to stop by their blogs to read about what they learned and how they created their samples.
