PB CHALLENGE #27 – MARCH

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).

 

Prize Winner:
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.

Ultimate Designer:
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.

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 🙂

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 🙂

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

1st – Congratulations to Mandy (#20) @ Made by Mandy
Jennifer’s message to you Mandy: The house is so creative and fun. You’ve added some great details too such as the snow on the shrubbery and the wreath on the red door.

2nd – Congratulations to Doris (#11) @ Kleidos Bastelstueble
Jennifer’s message to you Doris: Not only did you decorate the containers but you turned them into a castle as well. Such a creative and fun gift any girl would love!

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.
The Papercraft Business Design Team xo
