World Card Making Day 2014 Winners Blog Hop




Welcome to the World Card Making Day 2014 Winner Blog Hop!


If you are following the Hop from the beginning, you should have arrived here from Christa Laszczkowski's blog. If you get lost along the way, head back to Paper Craft Connections for all the links or use the list at the bottom of this post.

As thrilled as we all were to find ourselves winners in the contest, we were equally saddened at the announcement Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine would stop publishing with the currently available Jan/Feb issue. I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to Holly Anderson for giving us the space in the Paper Craft Connections blog and to Virginia Lu for all your work in gathering the links and behind the scenes organization for this Hop.

This Blog Hop gives us an opportunity to share the winning cards, including mine in the Hello/Thinking of You category. Fortunately, I took a couple of quick photographs before sending this card off to Utah.




A sweet sentiment from Altenew's Figure Effects stamp set is curved to follow the bottom edge of the    die cut panel created with Seattle Skyline and Memory Box Small Word Pop dies.




I'm having a little celebration giveaway to keep the party going! Because the sentiment on my winning card is from Altenew, I am including a $20 Gift Certificate to their online store along with a box filled with a few things from the amazing Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking WCMD Winner prize and other assorted bits and pieces that I can squeeze in :)

Just leave a comment by December 10th for an opportunity to win. If you are a follower, or become one this week, leave a quick second comment for another chance in the random draw.

Your next stop on the Hop is to Wendi Lau!



The closing of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine will leave a big void in the card making world as they have been a major source of inspiration, challenges, trends and techniques for us all. I wish everyone involved with this publication the best of luck as they move onto new adventures.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
