October Competition

Ok, last one for today I promise. Seeing as we're half way through October, I thought I had better pull my finger out and announce the theme for the October competition.


The theme this month is "VINTAGE".

For your card or project you want to make something that has an "old" look to it. You can do this by creating distressed edges, by simply inking or just using old looking pictures on your card or project.


This card that we made in class early in the year is an example of what I mean by vintage. I know a lot of the ladies that come to my class don't do vintage cards by why not give it a go? Have some fun - distressing cards can be a lot of fun :)



TO ENTER:
Simply make a card, scrapbooking page or other project following the theme and give it to me, email me a picture or a link to your project. The winner will be drawn on November 1st and don't worry, I won't be judging, it will be someone who is impartial who will not know who made the cards/projects.

THE RULES: 
The rules are very simple and are as follows:

The card/project must be your own design and made by you.
You can enter as many times as you like.
If you give me the card please put it in a plastic bag with no name on the card anywhere
All cards handed to me will be returned if possible after the competition
Entering the competition entitles me to publish a picture of your project on my blog.

THE PRIZE: 
The winner will receive a $20 gift voucher to spend in the store.

Competition closes at midnight on Monday 31st October

I look forward to seeing your creations.
Good luck!

August Challenge

Thank you to everyone who entered the August Challenge. The theme was "Beautiful Borders" and I think it was quite a challenge as we didn't get as many entries as usual. We did get some gorgeous cards though and the winner this time was Glenda with her stunning ivory and gold card using the Quickutz Die - Petite Petals. Congratulations Glenda, you now have a $20 voucher to spend in store. Here is Glenda's winning card The encouragement award this month goes to Jean Riches for her lovely use of the Marianne Die to create a fan. What a great idea! The die itself is gorgeous but teamed up with this beautiful Martha Stewart punched border and hand made flowers, it's beautiful. Well done Jean. This card was also made by Glenda and it takes the theme of borders out of the box, by using flowers as the border. Clever idea!
Rhonda's card using one of my favourite dies in turquoise and white, again with some lovely punched borders.
Dorothy's card is simply elega…
