April Winners

THANKS to everyone who entered the April Challenge - Furry Friends. We enjoy looking at the variety of entries and are pleased to announce the winners for this month.

Please head to the Gallery to check out the fabulous entries and leave comments to encourage the crafters. We all love positive feedback. And check the blog tomorrow to see what the new challenge will be for May.

We have THREE winners this month. Winners, please email the shop at and let them know which challenge you have won and they will send off the prize to you. The prizes this month have com from Kaisercraft's Honey Chai collection:

1) Overall Challenge Winner

Congratulations to Fiona Angus. We love the way you've used the photo of Tigger and coordinated it so well with papers, twine and stamps. Great job! You've won one of each of the Honey Chai papers.

 2) Sketch winner

Congratulations to Leigh Odell for winning the Sketch Challenge - a Honey Chai Paper Pad! Leigh entered two layouts in the sketch challenge and we love both of them! She says, "My daughter loves this page... I''m not surprised, they are her favourite things."






For her second sketch, Leigh has turned it sideways. She writes, "Pics of my girls using Kaisercraft Violet Crush, clear embossing and glimmer mist." 
We love the effect.

 3) New entrant winner

Congratulations to Marina for entering for the first time. You've won a packet of Honey Chai Collectables. Marina entered 2 layouts this month. The first layout is one of her daughter Ella and her furry friend. Marina says, "This is Ella (aged 2) with her fuzzy friend Tiggy. He goes everywhere with her, now he is less orange, does not have stripes and not a lot of stuffing. Here she is exploring outdoors with her faithful friend. I put the main photo on a lean because the way she carries Tiggy means he only ever sees the world on a lean." 

Of her second layout Marina says, "This is my daughter Ella in a rare quiet moment, captured without her realising I was taking her photo. The sketch provided the inspiration for the layout. I liked the simplicity of the sketch which allows the image to be the feature.

Congratulations winners. Please email the shop at and let the girls in the office know which challenge you have won and they will send off the prize to you.
