You've Got Mail! Welcome to our debut Friday Fun Day Challenge...

Welcome to our first of many
Friday Fun Day Challenges -
where imitation is the highest form of flattery!

Out of the many upgrades we've got in store for 2011, this is by far my favorite! I get tons of my inspiration from my crafty idols - fave designers and artists, and I wanted to help inspire Lucky Girls in the same way. I know a lot of you Lucky Girls lead busy lives, so we're going to be keeping the Friday Fun Day Challenge "rules" pretty easy going. Watch for new challenge inspiration posted by our Lucky Girl DT each Friday.

To participate the challenge, you must create your own project inspired by any of the following based on the Lucky Girl's project:

Overall Design

Color Combination

Title of the Project

Use of Embellies

Once you've got it created, you'll come back here and post your project to our InLinkz gallery at the bottom of each weekly challenge.

You may post as many projects as you'd like each month for a chance to win a Lucky Girl kit or store credit. Each month's challenge will close at 11:59 PM MST on the first Wendesday of the next month (so, for the January Friday Fun Day Challenges, you must post your project inspired by any January FFD Challenge here no later than February 2nd at 11:59 PM MST). The winner will be announced with the first Friday Fun Day Challenge of that next month. January's winner will be announced on Friday, February 4th.

The January Friday Fun Day Challenge winner will receive the yet-to-be-released February kit and bragging rights for being the best among the Lucky Girls!

At this time, due to the high cost of international shipping, our international Lucky Girls will have the option of choosing store credit in an equal monetary amount to the product prize, or may choose to pay for a portion of the actual shipping rate to their delivery address.

For your first project inspiration,

You've Got Mail!

Jessica created this little altered mail box(as another dollar aisle makeover!) using many of the left over pieces from her January kit, Forever Love, plus a few flowers, ribbon and bling from her stash. To create the flourishes, she trimmed a corner out of the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Sir Charlie die cut paper and used it as a stencil with acrylic paint. After the paint dried, she outlined the flourishes with a fine tip permanent marker.

Join the fun - I can't wait to see what you create!!!


  1. Super Cute!!! I posted this on my Friday Favorites today!

  2. This is such a cute mailbox!

  3. I altered my mailbox and I used the same title on the front of it. I love it and can't wait to put it out for some Valentine home decor.
