Hello everyone! I’m so excited today to get to announce the winners of our 2nd ScrapbookSteals online crop which was held last Friday night! It’s always so great to host a video chat with you and to just get to spend some girly time with all of you fantastic girls. I know I’ve said it before but I’m gonna say it again, how lucky I am to get to work so closely with each one of you! There’s one thing about scrapbooking that I positively love is the ability that it has to bring people together from all over the world and become friends through our passion for the hobby!
I was STUNNED at the amount of participation from you girls! I consider myself so lucky that I was able to go through each and every entry for the challenges on our Facebook page and see just how you girls put a spin on the challenges that I issued. Even though I’ve been scrapbooking for what seems like forever, I have to say that I walked away, once again, a better scrapper for the ideas that you girls give me. I think I’m fairly confident in saying that I’m not the only one that feels that way either!
So without further adieu let me introduce you to the winners of our second on line crop. Oh and much thanks to Random.Org that chose the winning numbers for me, cause in my book ALL of you are winners!
The first challenge that I issued was to create a layout using the color green somewhere. You have to admit that when you think of March, you just have to think of green!
I simply ADORE this layout from Christine R. Not only are the colors fantastic, but the design is truly right up my alley. I LOVE the balance of design and white space. I love the circle with the rectangle strips of patterned papers layered underneath. And oh my goodness…the title? It just couldn’t get any better than that! Thank you Christine for sharing with us!
Our second winner of the green challenge is our Facebook Fan, daily hint seeking extraordinaire, Lisa M! I love how Lisa chose to do a layout about she and her husband. So often when we get little ones we get so excited to scrapbook pages about them that we dont take the time to scrapbook pages about ourselves, which will be equally as precious to our posterity down the road. What a treat that her kids will be able to look back and see how she and her husband looked when they first met. I love all of the little details that Lisa included on this layout.
Our second challenge was to create a layout using the word “Lucky” somewhere in the title.
Again, I have to applaud Misty B for creating a layout about she and her friends. I I love her configuration of photos on this page. I love the flow of photos from left to right and top to bottom combined with the spray of butterflies in the opposite direction. Misty also has fantastic handwriting, which I have already begged her for a copy of! If only we could all be blessed with such fantastic handwriting for our pages. Yeah….my handwriting = stinko!
The second winner of the “Lucky” challenge is Nikki Tyhurst. I’m always in awe of digi crafters. It’s truly an entire world that I just don’t understand! I guess I’m just so much of a “hands on” scrapper that I just can’t seem to get the hang of digi. I think the photo that Nikki used is simply precious! Such a great documentation of her little ones on St. Patrick’s Day.
The third challenge that I issued was to create “Something Spring”. Didn’t matter if it was a card, layout or decoration. Just something featuring flowers or springy colors or even photos of little ones dancing in the rain!
Kristal S. did a “Spring-tastic” card! As soon as I saw her card I was so drawn to the texture in the torn and curled edges of the paper as well as the fringy grass. I love the buttons in the center of the flowers and the sun! Such a great card!
Our second winner of the “Something Spring” challenge is Chana P. Chana created such a great 2 page layout. I love how she created a flower using her photos and carried the theme across to the other page. Her little peanut is such a cutie too!
Our final challenge was to create a 2 page layout. So often I get in the rut of creating one page layouts that it’s fun to utilize the design space of a 2 page spread.
Michelle B. is the first winner of our “Double Dose” challenge. Another fantastic digi scrapper for sure! I love the journaling on her layout as any of us that are mothers of boys can surely relate! I love her placement of photos and how she was able to fit so many onto one 2 page layout!
The final winner of our crop challenges is Sara G. She created this amazing 2 page layout of her little one in the autumn colors. I am so in love with oranges and reds so I am completely drawn to this layout! I love the photo corners and the matting of some of her pictures. I also think the tree embellishment is darling!
Congrats to all of our winners! Be sure to send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and we will get a little “something” sent out to you! I just want to thank each and every one of you again for participating in our 2nd online crop and for being part of the best scrapbooking community out there!
