Winners Post for April 2018

We are so encouraged by the support you've given and projects you've shared!  April's challenge produced a wonderful array of inspiration.  Thank you so much!  If you have yet to review the April challenge entries, please visit the post for some amazing inspiration.  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 Stacy Hutchinson of Tattered Nest!  Stacy, we would love to invite you to be our guest designer for the month of June.  Please email Autumn at to discuss further.

We adore your wee album Stacy!  With so many incredible collage elements, all pieced together in vintage perfection, it is a masterpiece!  The tutorial you shared was so useful and we all want to make one of our own!  We can't wait to have you featured on this blog.

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

Nuneka of Meraki Spirit, who recently graced us with THIS fabulous tutorial, has wowed us again with these two stunning travel books.

We really enjoyed seeing the two different takes on this tutorial.  An album for all occasions indeed!

Elena Mashkina of Myscrape shared a delightful spring themed mixed media notebook.  If you have fears of binding, please take note of Elena's simple ring binding.  We welcome your works in any style.

We were fascinated with your page collages and unique inserts.  What a treasure!

Deb Riddle of Paxton Valley Folk Art made not only an artistic, but useful journal of her favorite rusting techniques!  Rust lovers will certainly want to take a page out of this book.  :)

Deb, we were delighted that you shared so many step outs for your process.  Each page will continue to inspire.  An amazing idea!

Maria Lillepruun of Magic Attic Design joins us again in the spotlight.  Maria's gorgeous green journal is a study in texture and composition.  We adore it!

The handbound journal is filled with many charming details, a picture of spring...

And we have Aurora Aurelia of Eos' Crafty Room who's beautifully coloring is the star of the show in this album.  The pages and interactive elements are so beautiful!

Make sure to check out the incredible video flip through.

And thanks to each of you who played along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the treasure trove of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts chipboards...

And the winner is.....

That's Magic Attic Maria!  Biggest congratulations! Please email Autumn at to claim your prize.  We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our May challenge for a chance to win a $25 voucher to Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Join us next Monday for a fantastic design team tutorial by DT member Anne.
