Peachy Challenge {new!} :: Kickoff Linky Party

HELLO Peachies!
I know, it's been awhile since we last met here but I wanted to let you know why -
our PK Challenges are new and improved for 2012!

More streamlined!
Same time each week!
New Challenge every Friday!
Inspiration from 4 first term designers + 1 Senior Designer each week!
Each week we'll challenge you with something different, but always inspiring!

Not only will there be a weekly challenge, but we're making it much easier for you to have fun when playing along!

Here are the details on our NEW PK Challenge:
  • Each new post will go live on Fridays at 12:01 EST {starting with next week on 1/20/12}
  • You will have until the following Wednesday at 11:59 pm EST to submit for that weeks' challenge
  • We'll pick a "Top Peach" for each challenge and 2 runner ups to receive a special badge you can snag right from our site when you win {no more waiting on emails!}
  • While our challenges are open for all to play along, to earn "Top Peach" you must use a Peachy Keen Stamp somewhere on your project. Prizes will be awarded based on design, theme, and challenge requirements.
  • We will still continue to offer giveaways on our Peachy Keen Connection with each new release, so there'll always be a chance to start your PKS Collection out for FREE! Just play along for a chance to win! {"like" us on Facebook for the most up-to-date details on giveaways and contests}
Sound good? The new format will go live next week! 
So today, we have a winner to announce from our last sketch challenge!

Please help me congratulate #15 GiGi!
GiGi created this adorable card with our color combo!

GiGi, please contact me {angelica at peachykeenstamps dot com} 
and I will send out your gift certificate right away!

Since we're welcoming the new team and getting them all "Peachified" I thought it would be fun to host a linky party for this weeks' challenge!

What better way to transition us into the new year than with some awesome inspiration from the team and the January Stamp of the Month Club stamps?

I love all the different takes on this set, and you can see it will be a set you can turn to all year long!
Going forward, we will only be showcasing 5 designers per challenge, but to introduce you to each of their styles, we're showcasing all 17 today!!

Stamp of the Month Club is BRAND NEW for 2012!!
Each stamp set is illustrated and designed by Kathy and
 auto-shipped to you for just $29.95/month and includes shipping!!

  3. Congratulations Gigi, your project is absolutely adorable.
    Once again congratulations ladies on your new DT status ;) All the inspirational projects rock, of course, LOL
    Stamp of the month club sounded awesome till I hopped on over to see about getting signed up and read the rules, bummer :( I LOVE this stamp set, and I'm positive I will feel the same way about the future sets to come, haven't met a PKS I didn't like.
    Will these large sets come in smaller parts to make a set, I can't afford them in a full set :( I'm loving those faces, and those eyes ohhhh those eyes are awesome! (Amanda's project and most of the others) Off too see if I can just get some of those, they are amazing and I really would love to have them in my collection.
    The new blinkies for our blogs are really cool, so cute, will be back with a project to try to win one of those babies! :)

    1. Hi Cindy! I'm sorry you aren't able to sign up with us at this time - I'd like to help answer any questions you might have but I'm not sure which "rule" you are referring to? The stamps in each SOTM kit will be exclusive to the set for at least 6 months. I will be sure to pass along your suggestion to Kathy! :) Thanks for checking out today's challenge! - Angelica

    2. whoops.....sry forgot to say why LOL
      Shipping cost is included in the price. This item is available to the USA only. Each month, you will receive a stamp set valued at $39.95 for only $24.95 and have it shipped to within 5 days via Priority Mail (US Customers Only)! If you are a fan of Peachy Keen Stamps, then this is for you!
