July Competition



The theme this month is

Christmas in July


 In an effort to get yourselves (and myself) in the  mood to start making your Christmas cards early this year, the next competition will be Christmas in July. There are new products starting to be released with Christmas in mind, but how many of us have stacks of left over papers and cardstock from last Christmas? I bet we all have dies or embossing folders that we've not used yet too. You know you have!!! I know I have... ha ha. So come on, drag them out and see what you can make with them and what better way than to join in the competition.
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.
Competition closes at midnight on Tuesday 31st July

Voting will commence on Wednesday 1st August and will finish Saturday 4th August

The winner will be announced on Saturday 4th August (or as soon as possible after that date)
THE RULES:
The rules are very simple and are as follows:
  • The card/project must be your own design and made by you.
  • All entries must be anonymous - nobody should know which cards is yours.
  • You can enter as many times as you like.
  • If you hand me the card in person please put it in a paper bag or envelope with no name visible on the bag or card.
  • All cards handed to me will be returned after the competition. If posting your entry please include a SAE envelope if you would like it returned.
  • Entering the competition entitles me to publish a picture of your card/project and your name on my blog.

THE PRIZE:
The winner will receive a $20 gift voucher to spend in the store or goods to the value of $20, which I will post to you if you can't get into the store to shop.
I look forward to seeing all of your creations.

June Competition Winner

Hi everyone, sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of last months competition. I had a busy weekend and when I went to take photos of all the cards my camera's battery died. It's not one that I can just chuck new batteries in either...it has a rechargeable battery. So it takes hours to charge and I only just got back to taking the photos of the cards.

For a while I was worried we weren't going to get many cards for this competition, but you all surprised me again! We had a lot of boy (blue) cards as well, but then at the last minute some pink cards for girls came in and we even had a green one! There were some gorgeous cards and it really is hard to choose just one winner. So many of you wanted to choose a 1st, 2nd & 3rd. But there can only be one winner....and I'm very pleased to announce that this time it was

Rhonda
