September Competition

Something Old

I was having a good clean out in my craft room the other day and I found some things I’ve had for years and some I’ve never even used. It gave me an idea for this months competition. So this month the competition is not an old card as in "vintage" but a chance for you to use something old. Let's face it we all have something in our craft room that we have had for years. Something you bought and have never used or you haven't used it in years. So bring it out and use it to make a card or project for the competition. If you have only been making cards for a short while, just grab something that you have had for a while and not used yet.

Whatever you decide to use, you can combine it with something new to make your card or project if you wish. You can use a new die to accentuate it, or some new flowers or embellishments but you must use something old and I'd like it to be known which is the old thing you haven't used for a while.

I'd also like you to be very honest for this one and I'd like a newly designed card...not a card you made years ago and have sitting in your card box.


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 Sunday 30th September

Voting will commence on Wednesday 3rd October and will finish Saturday 6th October

The winner will be announced on Saturday 6th October (or as soon as possible after that date)


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 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.
