Challenge #30 Love Is in the Air

Welcome to a new year and a new challenge! We hope you've enjoyed the holidays and are ready to start a happy 2015 with our next challenge theme -- "Love is in the Air". Can you feel it? We hope so!

Challenge details are below, but let's start with our winner for Challenge #29, who was #11 Donna Polley:

Donna created this adorable tag using our Naughty or Nice? set. Congratulations, Donna, you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)

Our challenge to you this month is to help you express your love.  This could be a card, banner, journal page, scrapbook page, Valentine -- anything!  Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember, you can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this challenge. We have an amazing collection of Valentine's Day theme stamps and many that can be used to express love.

Here are some creations to get you started, but check out our Idea Gallery for well over 1,000 more samples that you can search by Raisin Boat stamp set title!
