Hi, papercraft friends,
My apologies for being a bit late with this post.
I’ve had a lot going on this last month with family & also a new job. I’ve literally had to take time away from everything online so that I could take the time to focus on things that needed my full attention as a Mum & also a new employee.
Things are starting to settle down now, so I will be doing my best to organize a work / life balance & catch up with everything, including replying to emails. Thanks for your patience & I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
So, let’s get on with the challenge details 🙂
February Challenge Winners
Thanks you so much to all of you who entered our Valentine’s Day / Love themed challenge last month. We had a whopping 80 AWESOME entries! Thank you very much for playing along with us.
Our DT member, Lola, has had the privilege of picking out our winners this month & she has also taken the time to give you all a little feedback to the winner with why she has chosen them.
(Remember, if your name isn’t mentioned this time around, don’t be disheartened as we’d love to see you giving it another go this month).
Congratulations to Pillan @ Pill’s Card & Toys (#8)
You have been randomly selected to receive the February Challenge prize. Please email me (address on rules page) with your postal address by the 15th March 2020 to claim your prize.
Congratulations to Jan @ Huh. So this is a blog (#45)
You are our Ultimate Designer Winner for the February challenge.
Lola’s message to you Jan:I found the layout and papers to be pretty. I really like the origami stamps (since I’m a fan of origami) and the sentiment is just perfect.
Top 5 Winners
Nominated for the Top 5 Winners in order of placement are:
1st – Congratulations to Meghan (#31) @ Made By Meghan K
Lola’s message to you Meghan: Bunny! I’m so allergic to bunnies but they happen to be my favorite furry critter. The image is nicely framed in the metallic red CS with a pretty embossed background.
2nd – Congratulations to Dina (#36) @ Digi Doodle Studios
Lola’s message to you Dina: The background is so pretty and is a technique I’m not familiar with. And of course the panda is sweet.
3rd – Congratulations to Pillan (#8) @ Pill’s Card & Toys
Lola’s message to you Pillan: A cute elephant with a pretty background and hearts.
4th – Congratulations to Birgit (#1) @ Cards R Fun
Lola’s message to you Birgit: Simple layout with the background fabric just popping through. The ribbon with the staple is beautiful. I wouldn’t think to use either of these techniques, but it’s inspirational to look at fabric as a background instead of papers.
5th – Congratulations to Elizabeth (#5) @ Warm Harted
Lola’s message to you Elizabeth: Great idea with the triple shaker card!
Thank you all SO much for your entries. All winners, please email me (address on rules page) to claim your prize &/or blog badges. Thank you 🙂
I would like to say for those who didn’t get a spot, please be sure to keep trying. Your project could win the challenge this month! Don’t forget to try your hand at the new challenge theme.
Let’s see how many of you can create something using the challenge theme this month 🙂
PAPERCRAFT BUSINESS CHALLENGE #27 – March
Our March challenge theme is: Boy / Male Birthday.
Create your challenge entry project using the theme & you will be in the draw to win the prize! PLUS you could also become our Ultimate Designer for the month or one of our Top 5!
Optional: Anything Goes
You can create a project that doesn’t include the challenge theme & you will have the opportunity to be chosen as one of our Top 5. But if you want to be in the running for the prize or our Ultimate Designer position, you will need to follow the challenge theme.
Everyone is welcome to play along 🙂
The winning prize: Magnolia – Edwin with Teo Dragon stamp.
