Winners Post for September 2017

Boy did we ever have a difficult task in narrowing down our design team favorite and top 5 from the amazing array of entries in our September challenge!  Every single album was a visual delight and huge inspiration to us all.  If you haven't visited the September blog post since the end of the month, make sure to check out the full list of projects HERE.  


The overall design team favorite badge goes to Heather from Vestige Blog!  Heather, we would love to be our guest designer for the month of November.  Please email me at teamclark@rocketmail.com to discuss further.


Heather's cover techniques truly amazed us.  Her binding and closure were incredible, let alone the gorgeous interior.  Well done Heather!  We are so pleased that you shared with us.  Please take the badge above and display it proudly on your blog.


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...


Olga Ragozina from Gifts With a Soul whose fabric cover and gorgeous album interior left us in pure wonder!  


What a precious theme and thoughtful page layouts.  A truly beautiful gift!


Julia Aston from Create With Me showed off her skills with this delightful tiny mini album - what fun!  


These teeny tiny accordion albums presented so beautifully in their handmade boxes.  Adorable!


Bella Basson from Bella's Creative Space shared her amazing techniques for creating an album cover and closure.  


Thanks Bella for sharing this video flip through of your album pages, how cool!  What a great way to showcase those photos!


Alicia O'Bryant of Golden Goodness shared a truly delightful altered Altoid tin/album.


What an absolutely wonderful upcycle and beautiful use of this designer paper!


Last but certainly not least, we have the ever talented Christine from Craftyfield whose DIY Midori Journal/Fauxdori is a must make!


Christine's use of gelli printed papers for her inserts made this journal a true work of art!


Thank you all so very much for playing along.  And now for the winner's announcement for the fabulous prize pack, donated by the ever talented and generous Seth Apter.


And the winner is.....


Maggie of Capricorn Crafts!!!  Oh Maggie, we are delighted for you!  Maggie's gorgeous journal is a must see!  Please head on over and show her some love/congratulations.  Maggie, please email me at teamclark@rocketmail.com to claim your prize.


We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our October challenge for a chance to win a fabulous assortment of chipboards from our sponsor, Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  Have a lovely, crafty day!
