Polkadoodle Challenge 22 - Stash Box Stamps & Secret Message

Welcome to another Polkadoodle challenge! Due to problems with Internet Explorer and Blogger last week (and this!) and not being able to leave comments, the blog hop with candy which was due to end on Sunday has been extended for another week! So to be in with a chance to win some great prizes, click HERE to be taken to the Polkadoodle blog where you need to start. My post from last week can be found HERE which is where comments need to be left to be in with a chance to win my Polkadoodle candy! Good luck!

This week the Design Team are challenged to use Polkadoodle products alongside their stash hence the Stashbox Stamp challenge! Our challenge to you is to add:

Something Secret

This could be a reveal message or a hidden element - something that will be a surprise to the recipient!

I've used the A5 DIY toolbox template from Paper Boutique Vol 3. I cut all the elements out and layered them up (you get front and back for the tools) plus I've added a pre-coloured Handyman George image from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

And my reveal message is:

Good luck with the challenge! It is open until 12noon GMT on Sunday 12 June.

My creation also fits the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations: Father's Day / Man's Card

Karen's Doodles: Father's Day

Sweet Stamps: Masculine

Simon Says: Father's Day / For A Male

  • Toolbox kit: Paper Boutique Vol 3

  • Image: Charmed Cards and Crafts
