Welcome, welcome, welcome to the 20th challenge here at 

Let's Squash It! 

Let's Squash It! is The Embossing Folder Challenge.  We are gonna help you explore the world of the not so humble embossing folder and encourage you to dig 'em out, knock the dust off and find old, new and fun ways to make your projects pop. 

We have an awesome team to keep you entertained and awesome challenge themes to stretch your creativity and get you using all those long forgotten and neglected embossing folders. 
For those of you who are just tuning in you can check the previous posts for the story behind the genesis of the challenge and the technique posts for awesome tips and techniques to help you make the most of your supplies and folders.

Challenges start on the 10th of the month and run to the last day at 23.59 GMT.  We will be picking top picks and a winner, who will have a chance to be our guest designer for a future challenge.  There is a little prize on offer for a randomly selected winner and these will all be announced on the 8thish of next month.

Granne says,
I'm a Finnish mother of 2 teenage girls. I’ve been stamping since 2011. I got started when my neighbour introduced me to the world of stamping and paper crafting in real life and in blog land; that’s how my blog also got it’s name: Granne (= neighbour in Swedish).   Usually I made cards, but do love making ATC’s, Art Journal, altered items, and, and, and ... what ever seems to be fun and inspires me. Sometimes things work out nicely sometimes not, but I have fun creating.

Thank you for not making patterned paper compulsory — somewhat increases my chances of producing something I can share! Three lovely samples, a great showcase for scraps.

Wonderful squashed scrap cards from the Designers! Happy to be using scraps for my design (except for card base). Loll
