Hello crafty friends, Amanda Stevens here again, to announce the winner of the August challenge and issue a new one for September! We’d like to thank everyone who entered the Sizzling Summer Challenge last month. There were lots of great projects! You can see all of the entries over in the Heffy Doodlers group on Facebook. While you’re there, you can share your projects and meet new crafty friends. I try to share Lesley’s weekly videos there too as soon as she goes live.
I know you’re excited to see who won last month’s challenge, so please help me congratulate Alexandra Uhrin! She decorated a storage unit for her craft supplies with the Vertical Vines Stencil. Isn’t it fantastic? I’m so inspired to try something like this!
To choose the winner, all entries (except those by Lesley and the current design team) were assigned a number, in order of posting. We used random.org to choose the winning number.
For something a little different this month, we decided to challenge you to play with patterns. You can use stencils, pattern paper, or small stamps to create your own patterns. Mix and match for even more possibilities! I’ll show you my inspirational card that I made to kick off the PATTERN PLAY CHALLENGE…
I couldn’t resist using goodies from the new release for my card. I partially stenciled the background, then added strips of patterned paper along the side, before popping up my jumbo sentiment and small die cut coffee mugs. A few enamel dots in a rich pumpkin spice color finish the card.
Here are the Heffy Doodle products I used:
Bean Scene Stencil
Perfect Blend Stamps
Perfect Blend Dies
Warm Hugs Dies
Man Cave Patterned Paper
Fright Night Patterned Paper
Fright Night Enamel Dots
Heffy Doodle Mini Die Cutting Machine
Inspired to play along? Pull out your Heffy Doodle stamps, dies, stencils, and/or patterned paper and create a card of your own! To enter, go to the Heffy Doodlers Facebook Group and post a picture of your project in the September 2022 Challenge album (it will be pinned to the top). Enter as many cards as you like. The winner will be randomly chosen from all entries posted prior to Midnight (UT) on October 2, 2022. You are not limited to cards, feel free to post tags, scrapbook pages, home decor projects, etc. Just be sure the bulk of the stamps and dies used are from Heffy Doodle, and you incorporate the PATTERN PLAY theme. Good luck my friend!
Remember, when you enter this month’s challenge, you’ll have a chance to win a £35 gift voucher!
Questions, just ask. Need some new stamps to shake things up? Visit the Heffy Doodle shop and check out the NEW RELEASE! There are so many wonderful new fall and Halloween themed goodies. And if you act quickly, you can get free stamps!
Remember, you enter the challenge in the Facebook group, not here. Oh, and let’s keep it PG please 😉
I’ll be back on October 4th to announce the winner and the next challenge. Until then, I’ll see you on Facebook…
