Weekly Challenge and Winners {August:Week 3}

Hi everyone Darcy here. Last week Penny Nuttall  started with the most delightful hessian book , it has a simple but very effective binding, no sewing involved. She then went on to finish her semester with 2 gorgeous projects involving a rolling pin! Penny has been a joy to watch, her inventiveness knows no bounds. Seth returned with another great journal page packed with interesting layers and we saw some beautiful sneaks from Liz. Then a fabulous quickie from Helen and we finished the week with a good luck gift from Sarah. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects last week.We thoroughly enjoy seeing your creations. We really appreciate it when you take the time to leave positive comments, it means so much to us and the designers. You have 5 days left to join in with  the latest journal challenge, find it HERE. We have one page left to make, keep an eye out for it. 

1. And the winners are...

Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is: Sam

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 

 Random winner #2 the winner from the Second Challenge draw, (only one entry per name)

 is: Janet

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice.

*Winners please get in touch with Darcy ( with your full  name,  address and choice of stamp plate. 

2. The week ahead...
This week we welcome back Kate Yetter. I love this summery, beach card that i found on Kate's blog. It ticks all the boxes for me, layers, dimension,text,ephemera!

Then I saw this page. I find leaving white space really difficult to do, but kate has done this piece perfectly. All those yummy elements look like they are emerging out of the paper. 

Kate's first post will be up soon, get comfy and enjoy..

Get ready for another week of inspiration. 

3. P.A.Weekly Challenge from....{Kate and other guests}

Kate will be joined in the latter part of the week with other surprise guests, and of course, if you are inspired by any item you see on the blog this week, then please share what you get up to, and link your creativity here on the weekly challenge link. 

Your challenge entry can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have made in response to the posts on the blog this week. Just make sure you come back to this post, and use the linking tool below to show us your entry. We have extended the challenge entry deadline to 5pm on Sunday evenings.

Make sure on Sunday 24th Aug by 17:00 (5pm London time) you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff.

To help you find the linky tool when you need it, just look at the final green paragraph on each blog post, there you will find a link that brings you back to this post.

Weekly Challenge guidelines
The first draw is for every single entry listed, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times. 

The second draw is only for one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw. Having 2 draws makes it fair for everyone, no matter how many times you can join in during the week.

As this challenge is to show how you have been inspired to action by this week's designer, make sure in your blog post you explain what prompted you to create.

Please don't feel you need to copy a designer's work exactly, it may be one small aspect or idea that you want to explore that sends you into the creative zone. You are also welcome to use any stamps/ products / substrates you have to hand, we do not expect you to exclusively use PA products - but of course it is lovely when you do!

The winners are announced Sunday evenings in the 7pm blog post (as above). It is your responsibility to check back and see if you have won. If you are a winner, email Darcy with the name of the stamp you would like, and your snail address. We do not chase people for unclaimed prizes.

If we are away at an event, then the winners post would generally be updated by Monday evening with draw details.
