I think it is nice to end the year with a competition, so here is a small one that is easy to enter and is open to all. All you have to do is submit a photo of your
project, which can be anything you like but on the theme of Christmas.
So you can choose a card, a chipboard project, a scrapbook or any other paper craft. The competition will be open until the end of the year, so you have heaps of time!
Prize - choose from either:
Depending on the number of entries we have, there will be five prize packs up for grabs.
How to enter:
You can submit your photo in a few different ways:
Your lucky dip prize will be chosen from a range of papercraft items, which may include stamps, embossing folders, papercraft embellishments, die cuts to name a few. The value of this prize will be approximately $10 after taking into account shipping costs to your location.

Our next project in our extended 24 Days of Christmas Series, uses our Chipboard Basket Template. I've painted the basket with a red acrylic and decorated it with some Christmas ribbon, some border stickers and some star stickers. Fill the basket with cookies, chocolates or sweets/candies/lollies, to make a nice decorative piece for Christmas.
This template is one of the ones we normally have on template pages, but you can get it free. Just add a comment below this blog post and the first ten people will be sent the link to the file.

As we are having a very wet and miserable day here, we've decided to cheer things up and draw the winner of the 700+ competition. Congratulations to our member Karen, who wins a free template from the site!
Karen, if you would like to say which template you would like, we can send you the file link.
It has taken so long to draw this one, that we are almost at the 800 member mark, so we had better come up with another giveaway!

There will be a prize pack up for grabs, including mystery bag of items from the webstore to the value of $10 (less shipping), or you can use your voucher against downloads if you win. Good luck!

I can't believe that the year is almost over and here we are again facing another Christmas period and another challenge!
Please consider taking part in the Challenge this time, even if you haven't done so before. Don't be shy! We really need more entries to make the competition fun for everyone and it is so easy to enter your project!
Just like the last challenge, we are going to roll the November and December challenges into one. The finish date will be at the start of December, as the site will be 'closed' from 13th December until mid-January, so you will need to get going on your entries if you are going to take part!
The theme is going to be....wait for it.....'Christmas'....no surprises there.
However, I want you try thinking outside the box a bit with your entries... if you can. Try to think of it as a 'show-piece' or 'demo project' that will perhaps show-case a particular card-making technique or skill that you have used.
You might for instance try a technique you haven't tried before (and note this on your entry), try mixing media that you wouldn't normally use together, or try a colour-scheme which is not traditional, like black and pink or black and blue.
Of course, it is up to you, so you can enter anything you like, so no pressure!
The normal rules and conditions apply:
The five judging criteria are:
In the event of a tie, the prize voucher will be split between the winners.The top prize is normally a $10 download voucher to spend on the site but for this challenge, you can choose a mystery prize pack instead. The pack will include items choosen from the webstore to the value of $10.
The winner will be announced on the blog and contacted through the member message system or by email.
You can enter by uploading your photo to the Wall of Fame Photo Album (clearly marking your entry as Christmas Challenge), emailing your entry to us, uploading a photo to the forum - under the Competition Entry Thread, or you can add a link in the comments section of the blog.
Please tell your friends about the Challenge and let's get lots of people involved, as this might be the last challenge for a while. We may not run them next year, so it would be good to drum up lots of entries for this one.

This month was a challenge for judging. With less entries, things are always a bit tighter but here are the combined scores for the October Challenge and the results were pretty close.
First Place - Carol with 86 points
Second Place - Tresa with 83 points
Third Place - Susie with 79 points
Fourth Place - Krafty with 72 points
Thank you so much to our entrants to this month's challenge. Please visit the photo gallery 'Wall of Fame' to view this month's entries.
Judging these cards is always a difficult task but we do take time to look at each and every entry carefully. We have considered using a random number generator to choose the winner but this way we can acknowlege all the different skills involved in making a winning card.
Well done to Carol, who wins a $10 download voucher and Tresa, you can choose one free card template download as well!

Only a few more hours until the challenge ends and we only have one entry so far!! Where is everybody? We need more entries to have a challenge!
I know Halloween isn't everyone's chosen theme, so why not just go with the colours, orange, black, purple and green instead.
Tell your friends, tell anybody you meet on the street, it doesn't matter. If they have made a project and blogged about it on their blog, then a link to that project will do.
We've posted plenty of Halloween freebies and heaps of people have signed up over the last couple of weeks and told their friends about them (257 members now) so there must be some projects out there using these digitals.
Famous Foxy has cleverly used one of the digitals for her entry which you can see her entry on the Wall of Fame in the Photo Gallery. Thanks Foxy for your entry.
