Challenge 2 Winners, Features & Honourable Mentions {June 2013} New Badges coming soon & Design Team Call Tips!

Hello again everyone! It's THAT time again!! The Design Team has voted & I have correlated the results! THANK YOU so very much to every one of you for playing along!!  There were SEVENTY EIGHT entries this month, from TWENTY FIVE different countries!  So although we are down 4 entries from last month we are up 6 countries!  The word is spreading!!  Summer holidays are upon many of you (in the Northern hemisphere) & here down South we also have a holiday period so many of you are travelling or just enjoying family time & a scrappy break, but we still had such a good turn out - woopity woop!!

Please don't forget to include your country (we have 19 entries without countries stated so if I don't know where you're from I can't include you in our "stats" - which I think are fun :-p)  This month the Aussies are in the lead with the most entries, followed by the Europeans, then the Americans!  Asia, South America, Eastern Europe & South Africa are also in the running & we have a few Canadians & New Zealanders too!!  Keep it up girls - we LOVE to see your work & we all do our best to make it over for a visit, but word verification is slowing us down, so please consider comment moderation instead - thanks!!

This month our 1st Place goes to Lisa Griffith from the USA 
with this layout (from her very first blog post!!)


Huge congrats to you Lisa!  What an amazingly delicate & beautiful page!!
It had us all dumbstruck & speechless for a while - pure perfection!

 Please email me at with your postal address for me to
 pass onto Aida at 13arts so you can recieve your wonderful mixed media pack prize!
{we will also discuss your GUEST DESIGNER offer!!}

WHAT a truly awesome page!  This was a firm favourite among us all!!
Please email me with your postal address Linda, so I can get Aneta from
Studio 75 to get your paper collection to you as soon as possible :)

3rd place goes to Sanna Lippert from Austria! - I think!!

What an awesome take on the sketch & such WOW factor too!!
Sanna please get in touch so I can get your details passed onto Sofie 
at Scrapmatts & you can receive some LOVELY chipboard!!

Another great take on the sketch, turning it on it's side & as usual
wowing us with your awesome techniques & inimitable style Heather!
You have won your choice of Flairs from A Piece of Cake designs - 
woohoo!!  E mail me your postal addy & your selections please :)



Now moving on to our Honourable Mentions...


 These will only be ready by the end of the month but all
 honourable mentions from May & June are free to SNAG 'EM &
 FEATURED ladies free to exchange your featured badge to a "Top 4"!!!}


Another EIGHT very beautiful & deserving layouts that came THIS close
to getting featured, but decisions, decisions, this is no easy task!!!

The standard of entries really was incredibly high this month & we would 
hate for you to lose motivation when you are turning out such stellar work!

{We did say last month that we would feature a VARYING AMOUNT
 of honourable mentions each month, depending on the votes,
 but we wouldn't exceed 10% of our total entries}

Isn't this layout completely ADORABLE!
Be still my beating heart - I see a PINK camera!!

WOW!!!!!  Amazing page!  Such an individual style!!!

Yum, yum, yum!!  Beautiful colours & inspired page Nicolle!!!

This layout was a firm favourite!

This is just so light, bright & stunning!!

Sheer textural delight!!

Wonderful attention to detail!

A very beautiful classic shabby page!

WOW!!  You girls are giving us on the Design Team a run for our money!! 
I am already getting so excited about selecting the new team for next
 year so expect to see the call in March 2014 & remember :-

 1)  you need to have played along at the site to be considered

 I'm all about keeping it real around here, but of course there are many other factors to consider. 

2).   Geographical location (so we throw the net out wide!).
3).   English speaking ability (from a practical viewpoint for our Facebook group)
4).  Popularity/Followers (as the more people that read your blog the more chance of some of them playing)
5).  Great work & great photography (of course!) 
6).  A commitment to all aspects of the team (in other words behind the scenes co-operation, commenting etc, there is more involved than simply contributing one layout a month no matter how awesome it is!).

Now onto our RANDOM WINNER!!

Po was one of our Honourable Mentions last month & as you can see she
played again & created another lovely & highly artistic creation!!

Po please email me at so I can pass your
postal address onto Anupama & she can send out your 3 stencils!
I can see that you will definitely use & enjoy them - congrats!!

All winners are required to contact me within one week to claim their prizes - 
subject line (you really don't want to know how many emails I have
in my inbox & I want to be able to find yours easily!)

Come back on MONDAY to check out Challenge 3!!!
Remember it's not only about winners - we want you to have fun & "make good art!"

Don't forget to leave some LOVE for all these lovely ladies - 
we are all about encouragement & mutual support around here!!!
