Linky Party #14 at CropStop

Hello to everyone from CropStop!  We sure enjoyed all the FABULOUS cards and projects you linked in our last challenge, and now we’re all set for another FUN challenge.  We can hardly wait 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:


I started my project with a Galvanized Steel Surface Mixed Media Sign that I painted with black chalkboard paint and chalked the edges.  These cool signs come in various surfaces and sizes.  In fact, this one that I painted looks a lot like the Chalkboard Surface Mixed Media Sign, but I swear to you that it’s really the Galvanized Steep Surface that I painted.  I decorated my sign with some of my favorite CropStop products.


I included a couple of the sweet sugared bundles from the Petaloo Sugared Berries in Pine Green, and I tied them with lengths of Black Baker’s Twine.  These gorgeous Petaloo Sugared Flowers come in various colors and styles.  I also added a journalling card and a sentiment sticker to my sign.


At the bottom right, I added  small snippet of lace and again, I used a bundle of the gorgeous and sparkly Petaloo Sugared Berries, along with a metal key (which is a Prima product)……and let me tell you, CropStop carries LOTS of great Prima products.  In fact, CropStop carries most of your favorite brands.  I encourage you to take some time and really look around at ALL the wonderful products available at CropStop, and then come play along in our challege.

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 April, when our new challenge begins.

And now……Our Lucky Winner!  The winner of February’s Challenge, chosen by random draw is…….


Entry #66 – Bev.   Wasn’t her card absolutely gorgeous?  I love that gold heart and the sweet vellum branch.  Bev used some fabulous My Favorite Things products, and CropStop carries lots of great My Favorite Things products.

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 this month.  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!

Have fun creating, and good luck!
