Please take time to read so you don't get into trouble. Consider becoming a follower and use our participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.

WELCOME to Challenge #35 - Let the Troubles Begin

"3-2-1 Recipe" 
with Optional Sketch and/or Twist




THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "Help us stir up some trouble with a 3-2-1 Recipe that can be used for any occasion." 
     From: Our Kitchen at Double Trouble   
     Servings: Unlimited portions of Fun
     Ingredients:  3 - Colors 
                           2 - Patterned Papers  
                           1 - Sentiment or image (stamped or digital OK)
Directions: You may use more than the recipe ingredients stipulated, but you need to include at least the required minimum of each ingredient for successful results.

You can stop here if you wish...
OR you can stir it up with Double Dare's dare below to enhance the Recipe. 



THING 2: Double Dare
says, "What a great sketch and so easy to include the 3-2-1 Recipe."

It's Optional...however, if you use this sketch you can also submit to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Challenge #420 between the dates of Aug 6th - 19th. Link your project HERE and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw.

Use the Design Team projects below for ideas or use your own interpretation of the sketch. Feel free to change the orientation... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also modify shapes as long as we can see the basic sketch in your project.  


Note:  If you have used the sketch above and entered on Monday at Double Trouble, make sure you come back on Tuesday to enter in Try Stampin' on Tuesday. 

THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Ahoy Matey...the pennant in the sketch reminds me of boating. Be nautical & nice...create a card with a nautical theme." while singing along with Gilligan's Island theme song.

If you choose to use this optional twist you have won the regatta and have  earned an extra chance at Double Trouble's random draw.

Challenge #34 - SomeThing, AnyThing and EveryThing

Click HERE for an introduction to our challenge and HERE for complete guidelines.
Please take time to read so you don't get into trouble. Consider becoming a follower 
and use our participant badge or photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.


WELCOME to Challenge #34 -
Let the Troubles Begin!

"Grab your Stuff" 

THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "This is a 1-Week Free-for-All Challenge so have a little fun creating with "Some Thing", "Any Thing" and "Every Thing".

It's time again to grab your bone folder, your stuff, and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use "stuff" you have in your stash (new and old). 

You can Stop here...OR 


THING 3: Twisted Sister
says "Sunshine on my shoulder makes me Happy." Click HERE and Sing-along with John Denver and create your impression of Sunshine, Sunburst and/or sunrays using paper and/or techniques (stenciling, embossing, sponging, masking, die cutting, etc.)  
This is an OPTIONAL twist but would make Twisted Sister even Happier and give you an additional chance for Double Trouble's random draw. 



THING 2: Double Dare
dares you to multiply the fun and link up your project with any of our previous partner(s) below for extra chances to our Random Draw. Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into Trouble with them. 

This means: each time you link with a previous partner, or multiple partners with the same card, you gain additional chances for each partner challenge you entered. Please make sure you identify them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.  


We are saddened by the announcement of the closing of this challenge July 31st
and thank you for your support in partnering with Double Trouble.
There is still time to combine and enter Three Amigos July Challenge,
"Inspiration Board" Adios Amigos...we will miss you

Pile It On 
Due to overly hectic schedules, Pile It On team has decided to take a break.
July Challenge is still active until Sat Aug 3rd, "Girls and Boys of Summer/Winter" theme

our partnering will be shared again...we will miss you.
