Winners - Summer Fun

Many apologies for being so slow to announce the winners for the Summer Fun challenge.

It was great to see so many entries - all of which were fabulous and deserved to win!

I'm sorry you couldn't all be winners!  After much deliberation, the winners are:

Scatty Jan and Katie Tate

A massive well done ladies!  I adored your cards!  You both get to pick six digital stamps and one pack of printable craft papers from the Handmade Harbour shop - please let me know your choices by emailing and I'll get your prizes to you as soon as possible.

Many thanks everyone for taking part and also for your patience while I've been slow to announce winners.  It's been a difficult time recently - mainly problems relating to my elderly parents, both of whom have Alzheimer's.

Thank you all!

Papercraft Challenge: Summer Fun

This week's papercraft challenge is a summer special!  I'm going to leave it open for longer than usual because there's going to be a much-needed break from challenges over the summer

The theme is summer fun - so beaches, sunshine, happy times and flowers are all part of the fun!  And maybe much more besides!

Let me show you the design team's makes...

Teresa used the Beach Huts digital stamp to create this gorgeous summery card in soft pastels - I love this card!

Rachel used Ice Cream Sundae to create her deliciously sweet card - yum!

Kel made this adorably sweet card using the brand new puppy digital stamp

Teresa used the Beach Images to make this really summery card - doesn't this card make you wish you were at the beach right now?

Teresa used the Split Screen Campervan digital stamp to create a really fun and completely adorable card

If you'd like to join in, please leave your blog link below!  As usual, there will be two winners and this time there will be an extra prize alongside the three digistamps for the winners.

The theme for this week's challenge is teachers and other special people and we have some lovely card (and gifts!) to show you from the design team using this week's theme...

Teresa made this lovely card using the Apple Thank You digital stamp

Josie used the same Apple Thank You to create a gorgeous little applique mirror - a perfect gift for a special teacher, especially when presented with a gorgeous matching card like Teresa's!

Emma used the Thank You in Pots digistamp to create a gorgeous thank you card

Frezja used spring flowers digistamp  to create a lovely card for Mum/Mom 

Elina made this fabulous thank you card for a teacher using the thank you girl with flowers

We'd love to see what creations you have come up with for special people in your life - teachers, family, friends...


The winners from last week's thank you challenge are:

Tracy and Mervi

Please could you both choose three images from Handmade Harbour and email with your choices.  I'll get them to you as soon as I can.

Papercraft Challenge: Parties, Picnics and Cake!

Welcome to this week's papercraft challenge!  The theme this week is...

parties, picnics and cake!

To get you in the mood (although why we would need to get you in the mood for parties, picnics and cake, I can't imagine!!) the design team has been busy with the theme...want to take a peek?

Emma made a sweet card in more ways than one!  I love those sugary colours!

Teresa made a cute, sparkly and colourful card for a three-year-old

Elina made a cute little gift tag with the cute cat on a cupcake digi

It's an easy way to pretty up a store-bought gift bag!  Here's a closer view...

Frezja used the same digi along with some of the Strawberry Picnic printable papers to make these cute little gift tags.  They'd be great attached to little cupcakes too - a lovely idea for a party!

Josie has a work in progress with Christmas pudding!  Yum!  Who else loves Christmas pudding?

Josie's puddings are going to be part of some NOEL bunting and it all looks rather gorgeous already.  Using the Christmas pudding digistamp to cut out the image, Josie then changed the leaf position and added buttons for berries.  I love how versatile digistamps are, don't you?

I guess there's no rush on completing this one - although Josie says it might be ready in time for the Christmas Parties!

If you'd like to join in this week, it's easy and fun - and you may just win yourself three digis of your choice from Handmade Harbour.  Just add your blog link below, using the linky tool.
