Linky Party #8 and GIVE-AWAY

Hello, crafty friends!  I hope you’re all ready for another great challenge here at CropStop because we sure are excited to see all the fabulous cards and projects you make and share with us this month. For those of you who played along last month, thank you SO much!  And for those of you who are new to CropStop Challenges, we warmly welcome you.  Here’s a little inspiration for the challenge:


Repurposing product packaging is FUN!  This project was made using the packaging from a Tim Holtz Paper Clips that I saved.  I traced the back of it to create a base, and then slipped some Tic Tacs in the empty space.  I tied some Red Burlap String around the bottom, and decorated the top with Red Sugared Botanical Flowers from Petaloo.  It’s a fun and easy project, and CropStop has everything you need to recreate this fun little gift.

Here’s how the challenge works:

  • Create any new project using product sold at CropStop store. It’s okay if you didn’t buy it from us – just have a look in the store and see if we have what you’re using (we probably do).  If it’s a company we carry, then it’s fine if we don’t necessarily have the particular color or style you use.  Please, no back-linking old projects.  Limit five (5) entries per month/challenge.
  • Link your project here in our linkup using this handy dandy linky tool below.   Link back to this post, and mention the CropStop Challenge in your post.
  • We’ll choose one winner who will receive a prize pack of CropStop goodies!  The winner will be announced on the second Wednesday in October, when our new challenge begins.

Don’t forget our EXCITING NEWS!  As always, you will earn an entry to this challenge for each project you link with us (up to five per month).  But, IN ADDITION – we’re having another special GIVE-AWAY.  This will run (accumulative) for three months.  For every person you invite to play along who links up, you will receive an entry.  You will also receive an entry for becoming a NEW FOLLOWER of CropStop.  There is NO LIMIT to the number of entries you can accumulate – just invite your friends, have them link up, and leave a comment.  After three months, we will have a special drawing (just from these entries), and one lucky person will win a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE to CropStop.  Just have your friends leave a comment saying that you referred them to play along, and leave a comment when you become a new follower.  If you have ANY questions at all, please leave a comment and I will get back to you ASAP.

The winner of our last challenge is Entry #39 – Lisa F.

Winners:  Please email us at within seven (7) days to claim your prize by giving us your physical mailing address, and we will get your prize out to you right away.  In fairness to everyone, there are no exceptions to this rule.

OK……now it’s your turn.  We look forward to seeing all your great entries.  Thanks so much for linking up with us, and best of luck to everyone in the random draw.  Good luck with our GIVE-AWAY.  We really want you to spread the word that CropStop is the place to play along!

Happy crafting!
