PP409 Challenge Winners

Hello everyone. Anne Marie here. I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in my Color Challenge last week. There were so many wonderful projects in the gallery this week and we all enjoyed visiting your blogs to see what you created. 

Before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week.  





And now for our Headliner:

Amy O’Neill from Amy’s Paper Crafts

Two things I loved about Amy’s adorable pillow boxes: the fabulous pop of yellow she added to the color combo and that she willingly gave away some sea salt chocolate covered caramels. THAT takes some intense willpower! In all seriousness, I just love how these little treat holders turned out. The colors are so rich and the velvet ribbon adds a great touch of texture. I know I’d love to receive one of these adorable boxes, with or without the chocolate. Ha! Congratulations Amy, you are my Headliner this week! 

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Come back tomorrow for a fun Theme Challenge from Claire!

PP408 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Hi everyone - Joanne here with this week's new challenge! Firstly, thanks to everyone who played along with Jaydee's sketch challenge last week - I love a good sketch and it seems many of you do too, judging by the wonderful selection of projects in the gallery. 

This week is theme challenge week so I have something fun for you! 


It's back to school week here in the UK and this has got me thinking about little notes to leave my little ones to be discovered during the school day. Whilst I know that across the pond the return to school was a couple of weeks ago now, any time is a good time to leave a little note for someone with a word of encouragement or to let them know you are thinking of them - and you don't have to stop at children either. Make a little note for your partner, neighbour or anyone that you think would be touched by a surprise note to brighten their day. 

Before we get to the Design Team's cards, it is my pleasure to be welcoming back the fabulous Ann Schach to the Design Team once more following an extended break. Welcome back Ann - we are thrilled you are on board once more! 

Check out the fabulous cards that the Design Team has created this week:

  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.

PP407 Challenge Winners


What a wonderful array of cards in the gallery this week.  We loved how each of you 
interpreted the sketch.  We had everything from gorgeous CAS to multi-layered 
wonders and we enjoyed visiting each and every one of them.

We really do appreciate all of you who played along with us - especially those of you 
who play with us regularly :-)    

Before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the 
Design Team this week.  



And now for our Headliner:


I fell in love with PJ's beautifully composed triptych.  The red lighthouse works so 
beautifully with the red base and the pop of black from birds nestled in their sandy spot 
brings your eye down to the fabulous sentiment.  A gorgeous card and I am sure that her 
hubby will have appreciated this wonderful homage.  Congratulations PJ on being my 
HEADLINER this week.


Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, 
please pick up your badges here.  Come back tomorrow for a fun Theme Challenge 
from Joanne!
