Hello, 2017! I am happy to announce a little fun challenge for you to get creative and set the tone for this new year! Come and join me in making this little Bears album and you will be entered to win an Illustrated Faith kit and some more bears. (<–see the photo). But this challenge is more about you winning a lovely little album for someone you love and giving yourself the gift of creativity and that fantastic feeling of accomplishment when you finish a project. The challenge closes January 31st, 2017 and I will draw a random winner Feb 2nd, 2017. I will also share all the albums entered here on my blog at the end of the challenge. 🙂
How does it work?
Create: Make a little coffee cup album with me. You don’t have to use any of my products at all but I am calling it the #bearscoffeecupchallenge because I am using my newest collection called Hello 2017 with my cute bear Illustrations. I would love for you to use them also because I think they make lovely embellishments on your pages!
Upload: After you have made the album, take good photos of it and upload 4 photos to Instagram (you can do this in as many Instagram posts as you like, or even just one). Use the tag #bearscoffeecupchallenge and if you want me to notice it right away, please tag me too: @wilnafurstenberg.
Deadline: This challenge ends January 31st, 2017. So get creative and get going and don’t put this off! I am so excited to see your albums! Bonus points if you are the first one to finish and upload! 🙂
What do you need?

Optionally, you can use the Bear Illustrations and Frames that I created (see the related products below) and any products that are in your stash. This is a great way to purge the stash a bit. I linked most of the products (or stuff like it) in the related products below.
BUT FIRST, watch all the videos to the end! I would really advise you to watch the videos first all the way through as I made some mistakes (what’s new?) and I would love it if you can avoid those mistakes and make an album that is way prettier than mine. (I promise I will not be jealous).
(or watch these videos if you have a Cricut machine)
Also, I would love it if you can leave me a comment on this Instagram post that you will be participating! Throw your hat (or glue) over the fence and play along! let me know!
Are you ready? let’s go!
