Create Behind the Seams || A Mini Challenge

CBTSSquareImage

Woo hoo!! It’s almost Summer! We’re so excited that we just had to partner up with the fabulous Fiskateers to present a mini challenge. Our inspiration can be best conveyed with a quick Q&A.

Q: Name two things often used in the creation of all of your favorite projects that aren’t actually seen with the finished product?

A: Pellon® (interfacing, batting, fiber fill, pillow inserts, fusible webs…) & Fiskars®  (scissors, rotary cutters, mats, rulers)!!

Seriously? Where would our projects be without the two? Limp and unfinished, that’s where;). So, to celebrate everything found Behind the Seams we thought a mini challenge might be in order.

A little more about the Fiskateers:
Back in 2005, before the word “Fiskateer” became synonymous with crafting enthusiasm, Fiskars was looking for a way to connect and communicate with some pretty important people—the very crafters who used their products on a daily basis. With the help of Brains on Fire, Fiskars launched a four-city casting call for the loudest, proudest paper crafters across the country. Through road-trip conversations, scrapbooking website observations, and talks with industry insiders, Fiskars realized the need for a new type of crafting community. A community that was uplifting and encouraging, where members could feel safe to share about themselves, shine a spotlight on their handiwork, and talk openly about the tools they used to create it.
