Winners Post for July 2018

July yielded such an amazing array of handmade books in our challenge!  There was such a great variety of themes, styles and colors.  Thanks so much to each of you!  Make sure to visit the July challenge post HERE to see all of those entries.  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 Tristan Robin Blakeman of Enchanted Revelries!  We loved Tristan's tutorial on using tag folders to create this amazing, interactive album.

The tags alone are a work of art, but this combination of paper and ephemera is truly enchanting from cover to cover!  Congratulations Tristan!  We would love to invite you to be our guest designer for the month of September.  Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com to discuss further.

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

Elena Martynova shared this vintage delight, filled with beautiful fabric, lace and gorgeous personalized details.  What a beautiful memento for this notebook's new owner!   

We loved Elena's amazing layering and use of materials throughout this stunning album.

Marty of Merry Marty Cards shared a gorgeous Christmas folio with festive embellishments and details.  Her album certainly puts one in the Christmas spirit!

We loved Marty's waterfall design and beautiful page details, all in a perfectly nostalgic design.  

Marina Kurbatova of Scrap Line made our hearts flutter at this darling tiny mini album within a box!  

Every page of this tiny wonder is bursting with details that delight and inspire!

Mukta Parvatikar-Maniar of VREnchanted shared this stunning steampunk style masculine album.  

Each page is filled with gorgeous flaps and pockets, all in harmony with this great theme and monochromatic color scheme.  

Finally, Heather Maxwell of Vestige Blog completely transformed a die cut journal into a rustic work of art!

Heather's eye for design leaves no detail lacking.  She used this exquisite paper line and her mediums to perfection.  We adore it Heather!

A big thanks to each of you who played along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the $25 gift certificate to LindyS Stamp Gang...

And the winner is.....

That's Heather of Vestige Blog!  Biggest congratulations Heather!  Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com to claim your prize.  We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our August challenge for a chance to win an Eileen Hull Journaling Hearts Die.  Join us on the 14th for a fantastic design team tutorial by DT member Maria.
