Scrapbooking Day :: Wrap Up and Winners

Scrapbooking Day Wrap-Up and Winners
scrapbook page
A little scrapbook page, just for fun. I have approximately two billion pictures of graffiti so um… I’ll try to space them out. But I also have prize winners to announce! We don’t need to space that out! We can do that right now!

So… over the NSD Scrapbooking Day weekend, there was a comment-to-enter giveaway and five challenges you could enter here… plus three prizes for random participants on Scrapbooking Day itself. Which means I have nine winners to announce. Drumroll please!

Getting started giveaway
Congratulations to winner Ruth.

Challenge 1: Use patterned paper for your background
Congratulations to winner Olivia.

Challenge 2: Create a triangle of embellishments
Congratulations to winner Mel.

Challenge 3: Add a border between two photos
Congratulations to winner Maja.

Challenge 4: Scrap a photo that needs an explanation
Congratulations to winner Louise.

Challenge 5: Try a new photo edit
Congratulations to winner Alisa Beth.

Plus three winners from all the comments and links left on Scrapbooking Day itself, just for fun. Congrats to Patience, Rinda and Carolyn – thanks for getting the party started!

If you are a winner, please email me (shimelle at gmail dot com) and let me know if you would prefer a scrapbooking prize pack sent to you in the post (in which case I need your address please) or a class pass for you and a friend that you can use on any class – past or future! It doesn’t expire and there are new classes on the horizon, so you can keep it until you see something you like, if you prefer. Or you could invite two friends to join you for a class you already take, like Journal your Christmas or Learn Something New, if that’s best for you.

Thank you to everyone who participated by creating a page, blogging, commenting, tweeting, pinning and so forth. I was really blown away with how many of you joined in with my little party day… so perhaps I can find an excuse to throw an even bigger party soon. You game?

  10. Amy Says:

    I didn’t know you came by Melbourne on your trip – I hope you sampled some of our great food and the weather treated you kindly, it has been rather horrible lately!

  11. Sinead Says:

    Hi Shimelle! Was disappointed not to get to participate in the fabulous challenges for Scrapbooking Day as I was in the middle of teaching practice for my college degree. However, now that I’m finished, I’ve been getting in lots of crafty time:) Just thought I’d link up a page that was inspired by two of your challenges, using patterned paper as a background and creating a triangle of embellishments here. Congratulations to all the winners! Well done! Already looking forward to the next party (and hopefully getting in my pages on time next time lol!) xx

  12. De Says:

    Yay, you came to my home town, is that Hosier Lane? I hope you guys had a fantastic time while you were here! I can’t wait to see more layouts of your adventure. :)

  13. Jimjams Says:

    Thanks for some great challenges – would have played more if I’d been home – but can join in at my leisure now anyway.
    Congrats to the winners too.
    As for doing it all again another time? YES!!!

  14. Louise Says:

    oh wow thanks Shimelle, the challenges were great and i’m looking forward to the next one.

    Loving the Melborne graffiti, i remember this well xx

  15. pidgen Says:

    I really loved your challenges because they were — normal, yet creative. I just felt like they worked on the basics, yet pushed me just enough to enjoy the process. Thanks a million for all your work!

  16. Nikki M Says:

    Would definitely by game…especially later in the summer. Sigh. You inspire me!

  17. Chelsea Parsons Says:

    I know the exact spot inMelbourne where that cat grafitti is! Too cool!!!
