    I don't have much stamps but I'd like to have a travelling theme? Or how about everything with wings? And spring is also near here.

    Woohoo!! I can't wait!! I got some new stamps at the stamp expo recently and haven't used them yet. Of course, I have a bajillion stamps I haven't used yet.

    I need a stamp secretary to help get my stamps organized.

    How about a "3 or more" layers, and embellishment challenge..

    I mean that stampers need to create background layers (collage perhaps?)or layer up their stamped image. ie. stamp two images and cut out a certain part of one image and layer over original image to give depth to the stamped image to make it pop out more.

    Could try an "embellishment challenge" too Add a charm, a fiber, or thin embellishment. May need to emphasize the need to keep the card light for mailing purposes.

    Also could try a create your own handmade background.

    Just a few ideas Christina

    How about a set time limit - and then change stamps! People have suggested a few themes- like for the first three hrs it could be travel stamps/atc's, then switch the next 3 hrs to Asian themeds, next 3 could be Spring, etc.......... It would require you to sort of announce the change in the thread at your designated time- this way everyone would be working on the same theme at the same time no matter what time zone they are in. You could also make "Open theme " slots of time.

    I like the idea of challenges, but I also like the idea of everyone can do whatever they want if they don't like the challenges or can't do them.

    What about something like Somerset mag does...with the Different Point of View? Same stamp, different looks. That might be a fun one for some of us. Challenge you to get more mileage out of your stamps.

    Of course, these stamp a thons are kind of a challenge for me to actually use my stamps more. I use them a lot on atc's...but many I haven't used at all.

    I have 1,678 stamped in my index so far and for some of those, that's the only time I've used them.

    Poor little stamps.

    Wish I could play but I'll be at Artfest in Port Townsend, WA and will be creating other types of art... the sacrifices we have to make.

    Hmmm...I may have to join you all for the SAT. I love the CAT so much I don't have that many stamps though, really only just a handful. I'm sure I could make a few cards with them though.

    Having been to Artfest twice, it's too bad there's a conflict for you, but I think you'll have an amazing time there and learn both in and out of the classroom

    Another SAT sounds like lots of fun. I won't be around the whole weekend, but will do as many as I can. The challenge suggestions are good.
