Winners Post for August 2018

There were so many amazing entries in our August Challenge.  Thanks so much to each of you!  Make sure to peek back at those entries HERE 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 Margaret Mifsud of Margyz Paper Games!  We truly loved the incredible details Margaret included in this handmade junk journal.  Page after beautiful page is perfectly balanced and designed.


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...





Maria of Maka Art always leaves us wanting more with her exquisite albums.  The soft cover balanced with the natural images in black and pastels is such an amazing combination!  


Each page is a lesson in layering and collage we could all learn from.  What a beauty!



Next we were completely smitten with the work of Hilo & Papel of Fils et Papiers.  This album is the most unique design and the use of tiny photographs is brilliant.


You simply MUST take time to watch the video shared on her blog link to soak up the details of this delightful little book. 



Olga from Scraplady brought the Graphic45 Safari collection to life with her fabric covered junk journal.  My oh my is this ever a paper lover's dream!


The kraft pages are the perfect base for this junk journal.  The collages are inviting and inspiring.



Marina Ignatova of Create with Love was also in the mood for a nature inspired book.  Her color palette is completely different, but incredibly beautiful and naturesque. 


What a wonderful flip through video to showcase the many folds and flaps this album contains!



Finally we have Deb Riddle of Paxton Valley Folk Art who shared a brilliant file folder album!  We've all made them and love them, but Deb has certainly called us back to this beloved form with her charming vintage accents and embellishments.


Make sure to check out the flip through Deb has shared for all of the details.



A big thanks to each of you who played along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the Eileen Hull Journaling Hearts Die...


And the winner is.....

That's Gail Scott of I Like Paper!  Gail shared several beautiful folios with us in August.  Here is one of our favorites.  We know you will enjoy using Eileen's beautiful die in your future projects.


Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com to claim your prize.  We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our September challenge for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Make sure to comment on our designers blogs for the September blogaversary hop for a second chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Blitsy.com.
