PB Challenge #26

Hi, papercraft friends,
Wow! What a busy month January has been! Can you believe that we’re in February already? It only feels like it was only a few days ago lol.

We’ve decided to add a little extra avenue for you to get as much DT inspiration as possible. From now on, not only are we going to give you the links to the Design Teams blog posts, but we’re also going to give you the links to our personal YouTube video’s too!

We thought that by sharing our YouTube video links, you’ll be able to get a better, actionable insight & a closer look with how our DT projects were created. What do you think?

I encourage you to check out the videos, like, comment & subscribe to the DT’s YouTube channels. They would love your support, love to hear from you & they would certainly  love for you to be part of their own YouTube community too by subscribing.

You could also show your support to them by sharing their videos with your other online friends that love papercrafting as much as you do 🙂

We can’t wait for you to pop on over 🙂

Let’s get on with the challenge details 🙂

 

January Challenge Winners

Wow! Friends, you just love an Anything Goes challenge, don’t you? 🙂 We had a whopping 66 entries in our January challenge! We are so pleased. Thank you so much for playing along with us.

Our DT member, Erika Breslin, 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).

 

Prize Winner:
Congratulations to Ramani @ Ramini’s Craft Works (#42)
You have been randomly selected to receive the January Challenge prize. Please email me (address on rules page) with your postal address by the 15th February 2020 to claim your prize.
Ultimate Designer:
Congratulations to Jackie @ Get the JC Look (#63)
You are our Ultimate Designer Winner for the January ATG challenge.
Erika’s message to you Jackie: This is such a whimsical and magical card design! The layered lattice gives it depth, and I love the jewel toned blue behind it. But my favorite part is the attention to detail to the girls dress and delicate beading around her head and body. A+!

 

Top 5 Winners
Nominated for the Top 5 Winners in order of placement are:

1st – Congratulations to Valeria (#7) @ My Pleasure
Erika’s message to you Valeria: I love how you made a monochromatic card colorful! It’s shimmering with holiday magic. The several layers of texture so not overpower each other, and give it a feel of being in the middle of a winter wonderland.

2nd – Congratulations to Karthikha (#38) @ K’s Kards & Krafts
Erika’s message to you Karthikha: This is so adorable. I love the color scheme you choose! The fussy cutting is perfect, and the pop of white the scalloped edged gives is just what it needed.

3rd – Congratulations to Maryann (#9) @ Maryann Scrapbooking
Erika’s message to you Maryann: What a well balanced project. I love the idea of a masculine card. The fir cutouts are so delicate. My favorite part is that the embossing does not overpower the 3D elements.

4th – Congratulations to Ramani (#45) @ Ramani’s Craft Works
Erika’s message to you Ramani: What a unique design! It’s lovely and fun. I especially love your color work through the stencil, and blending it out through to the edges gives it a soft and finished feel. The gradient is gorgeous.

5th – Congratulations to Marjeta (#16) @ Marjetina’s Creator Shop
Erika’s message to you Marjeta: Wow what a fantastic project! This layered box is exquisite. It is obvious a lot of time and effort went into this creation. The lace accents complement the baby theme so well, who is nestled gently in between in all. She looks so snug and at peace, like she is tucked in ready for bed. Bravo!

 

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 🙂

Hi, papercraft friends,
Welcome to our very first challenge in 2020 🙂 Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a wonderful time & wish you all the best for 2020!

Also, thank you so much for being patient with us over the holiday period. We all as a team definitely needed the time off to be with family & friends. Unfortunately, Meghan has left the team & Jeanie has taken a well deserved long break. She will be back but we will all miss you ladies. Thank you for all the time & creativity you have put into your wonderful projects xx

So, papercraft friends, we have a few openings for a Design Team Call. If you would like to join us, apply here.

Let’s get on with the challenge details 🙂

PB Challenge Postponed

Hi Papercraft friends,
Thank you for participating in our November challenge. We saw so many wonderful & creative entries. You are all so very talented & we’re so honoured that you share your gorgeous papercraft projects with us. It’s such a pleasure.

Unfortunately, a few of our DT ladies have experienced a great loss in their family or undergoing some very stressful, personal challenges & struggles. So, we have decided as a team, to take a much earned & needed break over the holiday period this month.

However, we will be back with our brand new challenge ‘Anything Goes’ & the winner announcement for the last challenge on the 6th January 2020.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused & we hope you’ll be back to join us in the fun at the beginning of January.

Have a very Merry Christmas & an exciting & fun New Year.
Stay safe.

we-wish-you-a-merry-christmas

Much love from all of us.

Hi, papercraft friends,
Welcome to our November challenge.

It’s getting closer to Christmas. Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? If you have, you’re doing way better than I am. If you haven’t, hopefully, this challenge will help you create at least one gift for someone special in your life. But I’ll tell you more about the challenge theme shortly.

October Challenge Winners

We had an awesome 41 entries for our last challenge! The fantastic thing is, 35 of those entries ALL followed the challenge theme. I love that!

Thank you all so much for playing along with us. Let’s see how you go with this challenge theme. I think it will definitely challenge you as I know it did with some of the DT ladies 🙂

Our DT member, Lesli, has had the privilege of picking out our winners this month & she has also taken the time to give you all a little feedback with why she chose the winners.

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.

As mentioned, the winners this month have been chosen by Lesli Giertuga & this is her message to all the participants.

First congratulations to all of you who played along with us this month!  You are all winners for creating and sharing your creativity!  Please keep coming and playing along with us – we truly love to read your posts and see what we inspire! Lesli.

Prize Winner:
Congratulations to Henriette @ Henriette Van Mierlo (#18)
You have been randomly selected to receive the October Challenge prize. Please email me (address on rules page) with your postal address by the 15th of November 2019 to claim your prize.

Ultimate Designer:
Congratulations to Adriana @ Scrapbooking Engineering (#11)
You are our Ultimate Designer Winner for the October Tag You’re It! challenge.

Lesli’s message to you Adriana: WOW, what a great album – It is monochromatic that includes several wood papers, which are offset by light vellum die cuts.  This little album has it all!! There is stamping, inks, ink splatter, dies cuts, inking, crystal drops, full pages, half pages, pocket pages, shakers and that just off the top of my head. This book with the tone on tone has a lot of detail and is a show stopper!! She has included 2 stamped tags in her album. If you haven’t tried making a mini album – this entry will inspire you to try!

Top 5 Winners
Nominated for the Top 5 Winners in order of placement are:

1st – Congratulations to Chris (#14) @ Here’s One I Made Earlier
Lesli’s message to you Chris: Chris is a Crafter after my own heart. She dug battered corrugated stars from her drawer, added snow text paste, layers of die cuts, scraps of ribbon & the odd brad, as it is described from the blog. These tags are so cute & layered together with balance & a great colour scheme. The paste on the corrugated stars is on point and makes the tag POP!  So before you toss all those odds & ends – create!!

2nd – Congratulations to Henriette (#18) @ Henriett Van Mierlo
Lesli’s message to you Henriette: Henriette created a tag pair that are stunning.  There are multiple layers on the tag to create interest and the coordinating papers have the richest colours. She has fussy cut some elements to finish the tags detail. Great work!

3rd – Congratulations to Gail (#34) @ Crafty Nomad
Lesli’s message to you Gail: I was drawn to this tag because it has in interactive bat you can open to see the sentiment Boo. The base of the tag has stenciled bats as well. With Halloween around the corner – this is a great addition to the Pillow Box it was attached to – I am sure it’s for holding Halloween treats! Yum! Sometimes simple and interactive are amazing!

4th – Congratulations to Teresa (#25) @ Red Obsession Cards
Lesli’s message to you Teresa: Teresa created a super cute card that many of us would love. She printed out a digital stamp and coloured it up. Layered it on a tag & added a bow & brad. Her image is of a woman beside a coffee mug as large as her wearing bunny slippers. The saying – coffee saves lives, ask my kids.  Thanks for sharing, this was too cute.

5th – Congratulations to Pillan (#2) @ Pill’s Card & Toys
Lesli’s message to you Pillan: Pillan cut a tag with cross-stitching from a die. She die-cut a sentiment, and foliage which she coloured. She added rhinestones and roses. There is a photo where she staples it to a gift bag. Simply attached but looked so great!! Thanks for sharing!

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 🙂
