You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!
Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!


  1. Isn't it fun to see what can be done with not so cute papers? Sometimes you just have to look at them in a different way!

  2. What a fun challenge. I definitely have some hideous papers that would like to come out to play! This is added to my 'ToDo' list for this week. Ali x

  3. Your card it so cute! I love your Hideous Paper and your little bear!

  4. Wow...that really was hideous paper. You did such a great job making the card work despite it.

  5. Great job with that paper Laurie!!! That is pretty bad, lol! You did a great job making it look so pretty!!!

    Crafty Hugs,

  6. Fun challenge! I love the cards you and your DT were able to make out of some of your less-than-favourites. What inspiration to use up the stash!

  7. I really don't think the paper is that bad!! I love the teddy bear you put on it!! The ladies did a great job as well!!

  8. Oh my goodness, I love this challenge! And imagine my surprise (and delight) when I saw your hideous paper and realized I have the SAME paper!! When I got that paper pack my first thought was, "ugh, what would I ever do with that pattern??" Now you've inspired me to give it a try!

  9. Love the challenge, but so sorry that I forgot about this one till now and now I am too late - I'll try harder next week - lol! x
