September Challenge & August’s Winner

Good morning, Kirsten here,
Happy Sunday & happy September (eek!) 1st.  Thanks to everyone who took part in the August challenge.  I put the total number of entries into & it chose no. 10 as the winner.

Sarah Dunkley!!

 Congratulations Sarah!  Please contact Lisa at & she will give you your voucher code.  Have fun choosing what to buy & feel free to copy & paste the winner’s button from the sidebar.
For the next four months we will be mostly concentrating on Christmas & the theme for the September challenge is a ‘Christmas card/scrapbook page/altered art piece that is predominantly white, with a splash of colour’.
My project began as a card, but I changed it to a little wall hanging.


I created the stripes by adding strips of washi tape & applying distress ink on top, then removing the tape.  Washi/tissue tape isn’t terribly sticky, so it’s perfect for something like this.



I embossed a piece of white card to go on top & added the Joy Crafts ice crystal die cuts, the quote from the Hobby Art Butterfly Kisses Snowflake stamp set, organza ribbon & some white liquid pearls.

As the big day is only one hundred & something days away, we’re hoping the challenge will get your creative juices flowing & we can’t wait to see your projects.  Until next time, happy crafting.

  1. Hi Lisa, can you please delete my entry for this challenge, I didn't read it properly...sorry.... saw Christmas but not the "white with a splash of colour", I should have taken inspiration form your lovely hanging : )


We'd love to know what you think, so please feel free to leave a comment. Every one is greatly appreciated.
