Winners Post for December 2017

Our December challenge ironically held 25 entries - ho ho ho!  We are truly pleased that despite the holiday preparations, so many of you played along.  Thanks to each one who participated, visited and commented.  If you have yet to review the December entries please visit the post for inspiration overload.  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 Maria of Magic Attic Designs!  Maria, we would love to invite you to be our guest designer for the month of February.  Please email Autumn at to discuss further.

For certain, there isn't a one of us who would not love to be in one of Maria's live workshops!  Her expert hand produces such skilled placement of so many beautiful elements.  With so many tricks up her sleeve, each page is filled with delightful interactive elements.  As if the cover alone wasn't beautiful enough!  

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...

WuWu of Zatoka Wspomnien, whose simple ring binding does offers proof that you can make beautiful works in any format!  These pages beg to be touched and inspected, with so much detail - what beauty!

Georgia Rossini who inspires us all to get out in the world and capture those precious memories!  Each page is filled with joy and made with love, recording a once in a lifetime adventure.  A must make!

Nora of Creations by Nora made a video while designing this one of a kind matchbook mini.  There are so many amazing details and Nora's process is always a joy to see.  What a tribute to texture play!

Susan of Klistersøster upcycled beautiful Christmas postage stamps into this mini work of art.  I had to scroll up and down and up and down to take in the many details packed into this small footprint.  The binding method is great too, a must see!

Ragozina Olga of Gifts with the Soul used gorgeous papers from our sponsor Graphic 45.  All you G45 lovers brace yourselves!  Her fabric cover and beautiful folds and flips will take your breath away.  The entire work is a lesson in balance of color and shape, a triumph!

Thank you all very much for playing along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the Eileen Hull Sizzix Mini Album ScoreBoard XL Mini Album die.

And the winner is.....

Jennie of Live the Dream!  Jennie shared the most incredible elongated shabby album with us.  How beautiful and inspiring!  

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

We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our January Challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Join us next week for a new design team tutorial by team member Inna.
