This is another page from the clear stamp catalogue I'm making. Having all my images stamped and coloured in one little book sure makes designing cards easier. I wish I'd thought of doing this years ago!
I don't really need any more Christmas cards, but I'm still feeling super inspired after last month's challenge... plus I love colouring these little gingerbread men. Even if I don't use it, there's always next year!
Generally I like to have some tags and embellishments poking out the top and sides of my mini albums, but I decided to keep this one streamlined. Each page is folded to create a pocket that contains a large, decorated tag. I decorated the front cover with a coloured and fussy cut Magnolia stamp, a die cut title, ribbon and a doily.
Thank you so much to all those who participated in last month's challenge, what a fantastic event! We had a total of 743 entries, which was a staggering increase of 321 cards over last year's challenge. That's definitely worth a "WOOHOO"!!
Thanks also for all the friendly, encouraging and funny comments that were posted on my blog. It was particularly nice to see how many of you were visiting other blogs to leave feedback as well... we really have a lovely and supportive online community.
Now, without further ado, the five overall winners who were randomly selected by the InLinkz challenge tool....
Mies Strootman Stamping Kitty Petra (PST)
You've each won a $50.00AU store credit at Beccy's Place.
Please email me at email@example.com to claim your prize!
I have quite a collection of items in my stash that are waiting to be altered or upcycled, including this fabulous canister that was given to me several years ago by a friend. It's decorated with the little images from the Sugar & Spice clear stamp set, along with some patterned paper and twine. Now I just have to decided whether to fill it with Christmas cookies or rum balls. Decisions, decisions...
Create a card or paper-craft project using any Beccy's Place image, upload a photo of it to your blog and submit a direct link below. The challenge runs from now until midnight on the 31st of December 2017 (AEST).
PLEASE READ THE CONDITIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE ENTERING THE CHALLENGE
Your project must be created during the month of December 2017 and entered into the challenge during the active challenge period. Due to an automated system, late entries cannot be accepted.
Each month I will include a re-mastered digital image from my library of freebies. You DO NOT have to use the design on your project, but you MUST use a Beccy's Place image, either free or purchased, to be eligible for prizes.
You can enter as many times as you like and you can submit your card to any other challenge you wish.
At the end of the month three winners will be randomly chosen to receive a $20.00AU store credit for any digital stamps at Beccy's Place. To redeem the store credit, winners must have a Beccy's Place customer account. (Please note, you do not need an account to enter the challenge. It is acceptable to create an account in the event that you win. Accounts can be closed at any time.)
Store credit won during any Beccy's Place challenge is only redeemable for digital stamps.
Beccy's Place designers may enter the monthly challenge but are not eligible to win prizes.
And here we are again, at the end of another Month of Holiday Cards challenge, hopefully with a nice stack of holiday cards ready to send out to family and friends, or at the very least, feeling creatively inspired by what you've seen and read during the month.
Today I challenge you to create a holiday card with the papers, colours, images and techniques that you love using.
YOUR TURN: Do what you love.
