A Summer of Inspiration and Connection
Connect with our creative community
by joining us on the Club HM Facebook page. Daily challenges, shout-outs and
suggestions for improving our creations help all of us get the most from our
Club HM membership. Here’s a little sample of our summer-themed challenges.
Colleen Ballantine was a winner in
our Beach Challenge with her double, 12 x 12 scrap page entry on a look back at
childhood in Atlantic City. It’s in the Template Gallery as template 90702, "Beach Challenge." Cassie Balser took the same theme in a
more philosophical direction with her winning entry on an 8 x 8 canvas. Each a
unique take on the subject, they are typical of the varied inspiration and
execution found daily on Club HM.
Sports Themed Challenges
Challenges on the Club HM
page often show off sports and their participants. In a recent “Sporting Event
Challenge,” inspiration was to be had from many entries, winners or not, that
were a wonderful source of ideas and design approaches. Kim Matura was a winning
entry with her canvas showing off her triplets. But Andrea Van Steenkist‘s entry
simply caught our eye as did Jesi Ostrowsky’s “Baseball Poster.”
A recent “Slice of Summer”
challenge asked Club HM members to “Show us a meaningful moment from your summer
vacation, picnic, sports event, garden growing or other summer daily activity.
Tara Jones created a 12 x 12 scrap page called “Slice of Summer,” template 91256
and was one of our winners. The other was Colleen Ballantine, who created a card
thanking family for their summer visit.
Challenges at the beginning of each
month are often focused on how best to use new art collections. One of our
recent challenges was to use the sunshine and color-packed “Sweet Caroline”
collection. Sherita Jarrell made a heart-touching 7 x 5 greeting card, while Val
Parrish and Floyce Mord (template 91722) designed 12 x 12 pages. While not all
winners submit their projects to the Template Gallery, their entries are a
constant source of creative inspiration to us all.
