September Challenge Winners

THANKS to everyone who entered the September Challenge - Spring and Show Off Your Space. We enjoyed 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 later tonight (or tomorrow...) to see what the new challenge will be for October.

We have FIVE winners this month. Winners, please email the shop at info@artfullcrafts.co.nz and let them know which challenge you have won and they will send off the prize to you. The prizes this month have come from Kaisercraft's new Mistletoe collection. We'll make up little embellishment packs for the winners of the Colour Challenge, Sketch, Spring theme and those who submitted a picture of their craft space.

1) Colour Challenge Winner

We had to give the prize to TWO ladies this month. Both of them did a great job with the colour palette. Congratulations to Jessica Toulmin and Alison Bishop!

Alison Bishop shared with us a swing card based on the colour challenge. It's cute!

Jessica Toulmin really loved the colour palette and so she submitted 3 projects this month using it. You can read her blog post here where she talks more about each project. 

2) Sketch winner

Congratulations to Lindsey March for winning the Sketch Challenge! She's used Kaisercraft's Tea Break collection and a sweet photo.

 3) Spring Entry

Congratulations to Fiona Angus for this beautiful layout of spring flowers. The colours are splendid!

4) Show off your Scrap Space

This winner was randomly drawn from everyone who sent in piccies/layouts of their scrap space. And the lucky winner is ... Lana Hamberton! Congrats to you. Your room looks really exciting!

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

Here are a few other entries for you to enjoy. We encourage you to head to the Gallery to check out the rest of the fabulous entries and leave comments to encourage the crafters! We all love positive feedback.

Don't forget to check in tomorrow to see what the October challenges will be.
 Check out Deborah Watson's Scrap Space. I love the use of cubby holes.

 Jenny Moulton has been scrapbooking the meeting of older and younger generations.

 Shona Chambers has been busy making cards in spring-like colours.

 Sandy Ang has been inspired by the colour palette. What a fabulous layout!

This is Jayne Barnett's exciting looking craft space!

 Shona East's layout was based on the sketch challenge. She's used the new Kaiser Stars template for the background. It looks great!

Tammy Dale-Hodgson's layout is based on the sketch and she's had a play with using a white background and letting some subtle colours come through. Super job!

Have a great week and thanks everyone for entering.
