Amethyst – Layout 2

Over the years I’ve tried to eliminate my need to be a scrapbook supply hoarder, but today’s steal, the Echo Park This & That Collections, which are a brand new Winter CHA releases, are definitely going to find their way into my pile. :)

You can bet I wasn’t shedding any tears over the fact that I had to create the Amethyst #2 Mid Week Mojo using This and That. The hardest part was trying to decide what photos exactly I should let grace the opportunity of being paired with the glorious papers! I pretty much knew I wanted to create a page with the Charming collection so I plotted a date with my boy.

I know it probably sounds like I say the same things over and over when there is a collection that I love, but I truly could just gush about the This and That collections. I love the fact that the embellishments compliment so perfectly the papers and the letter stickers make creating a title a snap. Oh and how perfect that the Charming collection even comes with numbered brads that I could add to my page to tie in with the journaling of .45 cent wing day on Tuesdays. :)

Now it’s that exceptionally exciting time to announce the lucky winners of our latest online crop! I have been absolutely astounded with all of the crafty magic that has been gracing our Facebook fan page. I truly wish that I had had the time to comment on each and every individual layout, but wow, there were a lot! So exciting to think of all of the pages that are filling up the albums in so many different homes.

And now without further adieu here are the lucky random winners for our challenges 1-4 and our chat issued scavenger hunt.

Charity Becker is the ever-so-talented winner of our Amethyst #1 sketch which also paired as challenge #1 for the online crop. Her pages are always a treat to see and her talents for vintage/shabby are top notch!

The winner of the crop challenge #2, “Keeping it Real”, is Melissa Dehne. I love the peek into Melissa’s life seeing how many books grace the shelves and counters in her home!

Becky Back is the lucky winner of Challenge #3, which was to “Scrap that Stash.” Don’t you agree that she has a wonderful crafting area?

For our final challenge, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” Jen McDermott created this positively darling card.

And for those of you that were able to join in on the fun of our online chat and were given the details for the scavenger hunt, you can help me congratulate Jessica Arrant, as the lucky winner! Look! She even shared her brownie with me. :)

Girls if you will each take a moment and send an email to customerservice@stealnetwork.com, letting them know that you are a winner of the on-line crop challenges, we will be happy to get a prize sent out to you.

Good luck creating this week girls. Also be sure to check in tomorrow as we have an amazing guest blogger in the lineup.
