May Digi of the Month Challenge

Welcome to another fun Digi of the Month challenge! This month's featured digi set is "Not a Tie." Perfect for Father's Day, a special note to or scrapbook page to celebrate "Dad," or just a fun card to wish someone a special day!

You can purchase this month's featured set for just $1.25 in our shop. If you participated in last month's challenge, you should have already received this set in your email. (If you participated but didn't receive the set, please contact us -- sometimes things do go wrong with email).

Some of our designers made projects to help get you thinking about how you might use this set. We'll have more inspiration each week throughout the challenge as well. At the top of today's post is a lively card by designer Kren Kurts. She used a lot of terrific, masculine textures in this, and the repeating banner shapes are fun. Here's what the inside looks like:

Here's one that I made. I went pretty "clean and simple" with this, showcasing just the tie banner image and a sentiment, but like Kren, used several textures on the paper strips to liven it up.

This last card was made by designer Donna Hanley. Donna used the main panda image, but also trimmed the pieces of the tie banner to lay them out in a different pattern. Very clever! The spongeing gives this scene such warmth, and the little heart accents really convey the love!

Now it's your turn! To join this month's challenge, please make any wholesome project using this set, and then link directly to your project using the linking gadget at the bottom of this post before 11:55 pm Pacific Time on Sunday, 1 June 2014. We will email next month's featured set to all those who participate at the end of this challenge. We can't wait to see what you all make!
