Challenge 1 - Tic Tac Toe - 3 in a Row x

Hiya! Thanks for visiting us on our 1st challenge – I’m beyond excited about getting going and can’t wait to see your gorgeous creations!

Since my last post our wonderful design team gals have been helping me fumble about in the background and I’ve been having fun getting to know blogger more intimately :-)

I’ve invited Paige to help me this month and she’s popped by to show us the Tic Tac Toe options we have to play with. The idea here is that you use 3 themes for your card which can be chosen from any straight or diagonal line from the arrangement below:

So, for example you could:

  • Use a straight line going down i.e. Dies, Stitches, and Rectangles
  • Use a straight line going across i.e. Buttons, Squares, and Dies
  • Use a straight line going diagonally i.e. A Sentiment, Pastels or Pinks, and Dies

Making sense? :-D

P.S. You can use any Flatfriends digi for your creation x

A winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator and announced on the 1st of November (when we launch the next challenge). They will have their choice of 4 free Flatfriends digi’s and their card will feature on our Wall of Fame throughout November.

Please remember to check out the challenge rules on the tab above where Taylor is waiting to guide you through the formalities in her bossy boots x 

Okay that’s enough from me – I bet you’re itching to see what our lovely DT gals have been busy working on for our inspiration so I’ll leave you to have a look at their gorgeous creations below.

Happy Crafting & Digi Hugs x x
