Winners Post and Blog Hop Results September 2018

We had some stunning entries in our September challenge!  Thanks so much to each of you!  Make sure to peek back at those entries HERE to see all of the beautiful albums.  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 Little Treasures by Sylvia!  We were completely smitten by Sylvia's junk journal with its upcycled hinge binding.  What an amazing and artistic book this is!  We loved seeing it come together.

Sylvia, we invite you to be our guest designer for the month of November.  Please email Autumn at 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...

Anneke of Anneke's Card Art wowed us with her clever little never ending mini. 

With such an adorable box to store this little wonder, we are all itching to open it up and have a play for ourselves.  Truly remarkable craftsmanship Anneke!   

Elena of Myscrape shared a beautiful botanical/bird journal.  We were entranced by the many beautiful pages.

 Enjoy a video scroll through this lovely album...

Diana of Velvet Moth Studio  left our jaws on the floor with her Blizzard Binding method and stunning use of natural materials. 

 Do hop on over to Diana's blog for the trick to this unique, removable page method. 

Karen of Karen Bearse Designs has upped the die cutting game with her die cut resin journal cover!  This tutorial is a must see!

You won't believe how easily Karen developed this incredible material!  Karen, thanks so much for sharing your ideas with us!


And then there's Victoria Rudman, who completely transformed this leaf notebook into a work of autumnal art!

We love Victoria's mixed media cover details and traditional approach to memory keeping inside!  What a gorgeous way to store those treasured fall photos. 

A big thanks to each of you who played along.  And now, the prize winning entry of the $25 gift certificate to Lindy's Stamp Gang...
