Tic Tac Toe - Crafty's Angels Team Challenge !

Last week, as a bit of fun, I set my little team a challenge !

I have a secret Face Book group exclusively for my team of demonstrators, Crafty's Angels and there I posted up this Tic Tac Toe Game and invited them to submit an entry, the idea being to select one line from the grid going either horizontally, verticially or diagonally across the board.

Those that took part had some fun and came up with some very diverse projects.

So, kicking off with my own entry.

I went for Circles, Thinlits & Dry Embossing, straight across the middle of the board, using a layer of Pool Party card stock, dry embossed with my Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. 

I die cut some Layering Circles Framelits, stamping up the middle one with the floral stamp from my Wood Words stamp set (I wanted to keep the card monotone).  For the top circle I used my Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  See Product List at the bottom of my post. 

Next up this is this lovely card from Tracey George.  Tracey is a demonstrator from Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire.   Now she was very clever in her selection.  Tracey's selection from the grid was, going vertically, Flowers, Circles, Ribbons.   How was this for a clever interpretation, using the Ribbon of Courage Bundle ?   I love it.

Linda Keeley from Seaford, East Sussex, submitted this gorgeous box project.  Linda opted for the bottom line, Ribbon, Christmas, Box.  She stamped and embossed her card stock using the Brightly Lit photopolymer stamp set.  I love the unusual shape of this box which Linda tells me was inspired by some packaging that came with some lovely perfume !

Next opting for straight across the bottom, Ribbon, Christmas, Box, was this fabulous project by Debra Weston O'Hanessian who hails from across the water over in Pouzay, France.  Her clever interpretation is a lovely set of Christmas cards made using the Hometime Greetings Edgelits Dies, with a little ribbon and all packaged up in a clear Acetate Box.   A great handmade gift for someone !

Maggie Sullivan, one of my Crafty's Angels from Wickford in Essex, submitted this super cute little Stocking which doubles up as a gift box/gift card holder.   Maggie went vertically straight down the middle with Blue, Thinlits, Christmas.  She used the fantastic Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies in Night of Navy.    Look at those sweet little Jingle Bells !

Finally, we have this simple, but really pretty Christmas card by Diane Aylett.  Diane is a demonstrator from Dover, Kent.  She opted for Circles, Thinlits, Dry Embossing.  Diane used the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and made a pretty topper using Layering Circle Thinlits and also the Large Number Framelits Dies in Red Glimmer Paper.
