Sneaky peek :)


It's a tradition that at the dawn of every new month, we're sharing a little clue towards who our next Muse will be. We're always having so much fun, reading your guesses (which are usually correct., mind you!), so let's build up the excitement once again!

I've got a feeling that this one's going to be all too easy to guess... am I right?? :)

CASE Study Challenge #114

Hello and welcome to another week of fun! It happens to be the last challenge of ours, featuring the artwork of Julia Stainton, so if you haven't yet played in October, here's your best chance!
Autumn has settled down for many of you in the Northern Hemisphere (I've got to be honest, I'm slightly jealous *wink*), and what's better to celebrate it with, than a card full of warm hues and lots of texture. Let's get our creative juices flowing!

Julia Stainton - October Muse



Jeanne Jachna - October Guest Designer



Christina MacLaren



Clare Buswell

We will announce the winners on Wednesday.

Winners!!

It's time to share some winners, shall we? This week I had a heck of a task again, choosing the cards to highlight, there were so many gorgeous creations in the gallery! I wouldn't have it any other way, though! We LOVE having you share your awesome talents with us.

Our winner for CSC112 is Karen from The Bald Dragonfly!!




I love how Karen used a different pattern for each row of the strips, and how they look just perfect together. I also adore this big, pink, bold flower that adds softness to the design. Lastly, I can't get over the cleverly tied string! It's such a stunner, this card :)

Our Top 3 winners are:


Lea @ Lea's Cupcakes & Sunshine
Amy @ Amy's Paper Crafts
Erin @  Homemade Cards by Erin
