SO on with the winners for June. This month, we are doing things a little different. To save myself some time and to make it easier for winners and sponsors to stay in touch, I though it might be better from here on to provide the winners with the sponsors emails. So if you are a winner please contact the sponsor using the email provided under the image of your winners layout. 

I would also like to take a moment to remind you that your layouts MUST include some journalling based on our theme and you must also follow our sketch. Unfortunately a number of our designers had to exclude some amazing layouts due to this reason :(

Challenge Reminder!

Hi there everyone! Just reminding you that you still have plenty of time to enter our current challenger which ends on midnight June 25th (Australian Eastern Standard Time). 

We love the entries so far and cannot wait to see more. 

Have fun!


Theme: What's your guilty pleasure?

Oh yes! We all get some sort of pleasure from something we really shouldn't. What's yours? 

Ideas for journalling: scrapping, time alone, food, going to a concert, a T.V show, time in the garden, playing , Facebook, your iphone, shopping, bags, shoes, computer time, designing, creating etc etc

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. 

Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Please welcome the winner of our April challenge..

Now here is what our Design Team came up with. Please click on their blogs for more details on their creations. I am sure they would love to hear from you !!!

Arts & crafts has been my guilty pleasure since the first time I picked up a crayon.  With time, my love of crafts ventured into drawing, altering items, painting, stamping & finally scrapbooking.  Kay's Kreative Korner was opened in 2009.  It began simply as a way of sharing a few of my handmade items.  I opened my shop with a couple of handstamped cards & a few pre made scrapbook pages.  Within a year, I stopped making cards and decided to sell embellishments--specifically butterflies.  I've always admired the butterfly & what it symbolizes.  Change, transformation, a new start, beginnings...with this concept I started making scrapbook embellishments based on existing butterflies from all around the world.  Today I carry a couple of unique scrapbook embellishments.  In addition to the butterflies I specialize in vines & beaded flowers.  I make each item with much TLC and careful precison.  My greatest reward is seeing how others use my embellishments on thier own projects & pages...
