Winners Post for November 2017

Our November challenge entries were once again TOP NOTCH!  Thanks so much to each one who participated and visited.  If you have yet to review the November entries please visit the post HERE.  It's never an easy job to narrow down to a few winners, but without further ado...

The overall design team favorite badge goes to Maj of M-1309.  Maj, we would love to invite you to be our guest designer for the month of January.  Please email Autumn at to discuss further.

The overall aesthetic of this book just wowed us!  What beautiful colors and layering.  Maj's binding is equally inspiring.  Congratulations and thank you for this beautiful inspiration!

Our top five entries are equally stunning.  Each of you, please take our top five badge and display it proudly on your blogs.  In no particular order...

Jennie from Live the Dream whose use of muted color and texture make this treasured travelers notebook one that we all want to flip through and inspect.  What a beauty!

Maria of Magic Attic Designs is an expert, and we all could take a page from her book - quite literally!  These cleverly designed tiny books are also necklace pendants.  :)

Giovanna of GiogioCraft used and shared so many beautiful techniques for her midori journal.  What a treat to watch her process by video!  Thanks so much for sharing!

Kate of Kate's Scrap Yard whose mixed media journal is truly an incredible work of art.  We just love how Kate bound this chunky mixed media journal!

Debbie of Prairie Rose Cafe whose traditional style of mini album is certain to bring joy to anyone who sees it.  Debbie filled this album with many beautiful details making it a must see!  

Prairie Rose Cafe: New Christmas Mini Album

Thank you all so very much for playing along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the Lindy's Stamp Gang $25 gift certificate...

And the winner is.....

Nora from Creations by Nora!  Nora's box book and mixed media cover art is truly one of the most creative projects in the blogosphere.  Do check out her video!

Biggest congratulations Nora, please email Autumn at to claim your prize.
