Hello, everyone! Welcome back to the CropStop Blog for our October Anything Goes Challenge. We’re SO glad you’re here, and we hope that you have a great time playing along with us this month. We have some great inspiration, fabulous prize up for grabs, and a lucky winner to announce; so, let’s get started!
To get you inspired for this month’s challenge, Karen Letchworth has created a sweet Christmas wall hanging using some fabulous CropStop products. Christmas is coming much sooner than we realize, and hand-made gifts are a great idea to help keep down costs and to show friends and family members how much we love them. This wall hanging was created using a Mixed Media Chalk Board Sign. These cute signs come in a shiny silver metal and a chalkboard finish. They are the perfect beginning to a wonderful gift-giving design because you can decorate it any way you like to accommodate the decor and taste of the person to whom you are giving it. This one has some Ribbons, and the edges are inked with White Chalk. The Chalk Surface Mixed Media signs can actually be written on with chalk because they are a chalkboard, so they would also be great to hang in your kitchen to add the dinner menu, a weekly scripture or quote, or for all sorts of great crafting ideas. The possibilities are endless.
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. You’re welcome to share ANY project with us.
- 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 November when our new challenge begins.
AND NOW….Our lucky winner from September’s challenge chosen by random.org is:
Entry #6 – Esther’s Card Creations/Shoregirl created this gorgeous banner using Provo Craft letter dies, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks as well as other fun CropStop products. Thanks for playing along with us, Esther!
Winners: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
