Honorable Mention

By September 16, 2007General

Well this month’s search for two Guest Star Stampers was difficult to say the least!  And not because we were lacking for amazing entries!  We received over 450 submissions (honestly, I just stopped counting!), and it was SO tough for me to narrow it down!  The winner for best use of Beautiful Blooms was Melanie Muenchinger (more about her in the next post below!).  And Natasha Trupp was chosen for her outstanding design using Spooky Sweets.  Natasha created the most clever backdrop for her bats by piecing together our Avery label image, stamped in a spectrum of colors (see her project HERE).  This is such a great idea, and something you could use for cards of all occasions and themes, especially since we are offering other varieties of these images now!  Thanks for the great entry, Natasha!

And as always, there are a few additional entries that cannot go unmentioned!  So here are September’s Honorable Mentions!


Sherrie_siemensSherrie Seimens used one of the flowers to make breath-taking snowflakes.  Don’t you just love that!  As well as a clever concept, I think the colors & design are so peaceful and serene!

Dana_vitek Dana Vitek made this bold & bright picture frame (and her daughter comes close to stealing the show!)  Notice how she punched circular windows through the frame and hung charms made from polyshrink!  I just LOVED that!

Charmaine_ikachCharmaine Ikach paired a really vibrant, unique color-scheme with a fantastic design.  I love the detail of adding two strips of knotted ribbon.

Julie_brooksJulie Brooks color scheme and simplicity on the front of this box just took my breath away.  It just visually speaks to me and it would be so simple to replicate at the same time.  Just beautiful!

Lauren_meader_2Lauren Meader had SEVERAL entries this month, but this one caught my eye the most.  I love the innovative use of pairing Borders & Corners with the Beautiful Blooms set.  I think they really compliment each other nicely in this project!


Jen_ofiana_2Jen Ofiana created this stunning tag project.  I just love how she integrated all the bits & pieces from this set into one project.  The trio of spiders in the middle is so cute too!

Lexi_daly_2Lexi Daly put some googly eyes in the "double o" in spooky!  Isn’t that such a fun idea!  I am SO going to do that on some projects I have planned for my children’s teachers this year!

Carole_burrage_2Carole Burrage made this Halloween decor for her house using scraps of patterned paper and the pumpkin face images from Spooky Sweets.  I think this would be such a fun project to do with kids!

Next month’s contest has already begun!  We will be choosing THREE winners!  The sets we want to see entries made with are:


Holiday Treats

Take a Bough
