Linky Party #12 – Anything Goes

Hello to everyone from CropStop!  We hope that you each had a wonderful Christmas and safe New Year, and are all ready for another FUN challenge here on our blog cuz’ we’re super excited to see all the fabulous cards and projects you’ll be making and sharing with us this month. For those of you who played along in last month’s challenge, thank you SO much!  And for those of you who are new to CropStop Challenges, we warmly welcome you.  Here’s a little inspirational project that I created for this month’s Anything Goes challenge:


You may notice the beautiful inking on the edges of this card.  That’s just one of the MANY colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks you will find at CropStop.  We carry all of your old favorites, and all of the brand new colors just released by Tim Holtz.  The shade I used on this card is called Fossilized Amber and it matches my flowers so well.  There’s sure to be the perfect shade of Tim Holtz Distress Ink for ALL your projects.  Be sure to check out ALL the beautiful colors we carry at CropStop!


Once I had inked the edges of my patterned paper, I attached a journalling card and some ephemera.  The focal point of this card are the LOVELY Petaloo Sugared Flowers I attached.   Aren’t they just the sweetest?  I replaced the burlap tie with a bow made from Ivory Burlap String (yet another fabulous product that comes in a wide variety of colors).  The Petaloo Sugared Flowers I used are the Sugared Berry Clusters and they are truly GORGEOUS!  They are sprinkled with a light dusting of “sugar” to give that soft romantic feel.  They come with three of these sweet bundles in each package, and they are truly STUNNING!  There are just oodles add oodles of beautiful products available at CropStop, and we welcome you to browse through ALL the wonderful things avaiable in our store.  You are sure to find some of your old favorites, and some new items to spice up your crafting projects.

Here’s how our challenges work:

  • Create any new project(s) using any 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 random winner who will receive a prize pack of CropStop goodies!  The winner will be announced on the second Wednesday in February, when our new challenge begins.

And now……Our Lucky Winner!  The winner of January’s challenge who was chosen by random draw is:


Entry #111 – Leslie Turner .  Isn’t her card absolutely LOVELY?

Winners:  Please email us at within seven (7) days to claim your prizes 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.   We really want you to help us spread the word that CropStop is a great place to play along!

Happy creating and good luck!
