Congrats, Erin!! Your ring is AMAZING!!
Congrats to Lori for the honorable mention, too!

Linda Caudle

Great chose! I loved that piece also. Thought it was a home run.

Lori Beekman

Congratulations to Erin and Cindy! And Marcia for the honorable mention. Thank you, Brenda, for holding this challenge/hop. You are such an inspiration on every level. And very appreciated. I'm so happy to have been an honorable mention. <3 Thank you!

Susan Bowerman

Brenda, I would have hated to be in your shoes! I read every blog, and in the process saw the most amazing artistry. And were I charged with naming a winner, I would have lost sleep…quite a bit of it! But, in terms of the "Change it Up Theme," Erin's design is a natural choice for a win. She put that concept on "steroids" with this design! Congratulations, Erin! You embraced this theme in the most imaginative way. And to all the others who participated in the challenge, I so enjoyed seeing your work, and "walking your walk" through your blogs. I learned quite a bit simply by being a bystander. You are all winners in my book. Great job, and kudos to all of you! I enjoyed my vicarious journey immensely! Well done.

Shari Gardner



Congratulations Erin! And to Cindy and Marcia, too! Your designs were wonderful! I was inspired by everyone and enjoyed seeing all the great creations. Brenda, thank you for all you do to teach and encourage us.

Jann Tague

Congrats Erin on your win and to everyone else mentioned in this article .. Erin your ring is so unique .. Everyone did a fantastic job on designing and on their blogs


Oh my I don't know how I forgot...Congratulations to Lori, too!

Erin Whitacre

Thank you so much for all of the kind comments and congratulations. I think everyone that participated was a winner. So many beautiful pieces! I think this challenge makes me look at stampings in a different way and opens up so many possibilities and ideas.

Vonda Stephenson

Congratulations to Erin Whitaker for winning the change it up challenge! Congrats to Lori Berkman and Marcia Tuzzalino as honorable mentions. Also congrats to Cindy Peterson. You really had your work cut out for you, Brenda, and I think you did a wonderful job judging this challenge. Everyone did a really great job.

Karen Eaton

Congratulations to all!!! I learned so much from this! I normally am not a "planner", but had to with this. I had a great time and loved all the project designs! I would also have lost sleep trying to pick a winner! And Brenda, your pieces were just beyond beautiful! I feel honored to have been able to participate and look forward to more creating!!!


Congrats to everyone, there was some absolutely wonderful design concepts. The ability to see these pieces in ways other people (including me at times) can't see them is a true gift and I thank you all for sharing your perceptions with us all.

Congrats to the winners as well, you truly earned it!

I've said it before, these are the types of challenges I enjoy most, seeing the many ways a small handful of pieces can be used without duplication is a joy. Thank you Brenda!

Beth Trubman

Congratulations Erin! You truly 'changed it up' with your ring. I too was surprised that you make the stamping into a ring. Awesome idea and execution. And congratulations to the runners up. Brenda, thank you for getting us to think "outside the box".

Deb Beechy

Congrats everyone.


Congrats to Erin, and all the contestants who took part.
You are all winners for thinking outside the box, and providing inspiration for all!

Sue Shade

Congratulations Erin. These were all great pieces and definitely an eye opener in design. Great work every one.


CONGRATS to all!! I'm glad I didn't have Brenda's job! LOL!!

Gillian Cunningham Wright

Congratulations Erin I love your ring and would love to wear it! I'm totally inspired to make a ring like this.
Congratulations to all the other designers your work blew me away. The Creative Group rocks!!!


Brenda, I don't know how you did it with so much beauty and innovation to choose from. I am fascinated by these pieces, too. Thanks for hosting a fun party. Charlotte
