Winners from June

Who are our June winners?

Well, this one was quite well entered so while finding a winner is relatively easy as we have the random number to do that for us (and then that person has to have followed the theme, not used stamps and had a go at the twist), finding the three (or four or five) DT favorites is not as easy.

We all have different styles and tastes. That is why getting the Design team to choose as a team is a positive as we can allow all those different styles to shine. However, the down side is when all the DT members choose someone different and then I have to decide who to pick from this smaller group!

Usually only happens when we have so many entries so who is complaining! NOT ME!

Random Number Prize Winner:
No 25:
Chris cartes et patchs

Now, we have a new challenge running for July

Fancy frame or border

Twist - How edgy can you be?


Dies and Embossing folder (+ magazine)

Let's see what you can come up with for this - remember NO STAMPS but you can enter any paper based item you have created that follows the theme and hopefully had a go at the twist! This month it is asking you 

"How edgy can you be?"

This gives you a chance to have a fancy edge or be very 'out there' or to use an edge in a different way. Perhaps your edge is not at the edge? Perhaps it is being very trendy or modern? Perhaps it is geometric or a different shape to the norm? 

My inspiration for you this week is a scrap page
I was looking for a particular photograph and came across a set of photo's taken back in 1986 - that's 32 years ago folks! It was July and mid-winter. We had an unexpected fall of snow overnight and it settled right to the water's edge at sea level. We woke to a world of white and it was exciting!

I got to write my notes and put them under the top photo's - the page lift's back on a hinge.
You can find more details on my blog

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Here is another idea from Vicki!

Love that edge!

Here is another inspirational photo to spur you on.....
the memorial framed between the tree and sky and the way that cloud is so edgy.......
.....this is looking east - and the sun is rising on a beautiful blue winter's day.

WOW... what an amazing capture over Hobart byDeni Cupit.
Yesterday’s sunrise cloud formation added to the memorial flame at the Cenotaph.
