July Challenge - Patterned Paper

Hello and welcome to our Christmas Craft Creations Challenge for July.

This month our theme is Patterned Paper - please make sure the theme is very clear in your project. We have lots of fabulous inspiration for you from our launch team.

As it is Christmas in July we have not one, not two, but three prizes up for grabs! Listed in no particular order, they are:

Prize 1:
Photoplay Card Kit for Shutter Cards (pieces for 3 cards) donated by Nancy

Prize 2:
Honey Bee Stamps Bee Merry stamp set donated by Allison

Prize 3:
Stampin' Up Textured Impressions Stripes embossing folder donated by Tammy.

The prize winners will be picked randomly from among those entrants who have followed all the rules. Rules are in the side bar if you need a refresher. If you have a preference as to which prize you would receive should you be the winner, please mention that in the comments below and I will try to take that into account when the winners are chosen. I cannot guarantee it though!

For an extra chance to win, tell a friend about this challenge! If your friend leaves a comment on this post letting me know who told them about this challenge (that means you!) then both you and your friend will get an extra chance at winning, as long as you both have also played along with us.

And here's the inspiration from the team:

We hope that inspires you to join in with our challenge! Be sure to come back in two weeks to see the inspiration from the reminder team.

If you entered last month's challenge, check back next week to see if you were a prize winner, DT favourite or honourable mention!

We look forward to seeing your Christmas projects with patterned paper! The deadline for entering is Tuesday 9 August at 6pm GMT.

Reminder: You can find our rules in the sidebar. Please remember to include a link back to our blog along with our challenge graphic. If you're entering from Instagram, you can use the hashtag #ChristmasCraftCreations

  1. Thank you for the new challenge and DT inspiration - If I should be a winner I would like to receive either the Bee Stamp or Embossing folder thank you. Have a blessed day ~ Gail~

  2. Thank you for the new challenge. I wish your challenges were more often because they are such fun! Love the DT cards, especially the puppy and tanned Santa. If I should win, I would love to have the shutter card as I have the bee stamp and embossing folder. Have a great week.

  3. Playing just for fun, but the DT cards are fantastic! Good luck to everyone!

  4. I found out about this challenge from my good friend, Karen Ladd, who entered her gorgeous 7 Swans a Swimming Card.
    The DT made some wonderful samples. I esp like the rustic beauty of Alli's card.
    Thank you for this fun challenge. I am enjoying the Christmas in July theme!!

  5. Gorgeous and fun cards by the team! I think Michelle's Santa is sunning in the Florida Keys!! lol And I love the colors & patterns that Carol used on her stockings; non-traditional & I love that. If I should be so lucky to win, I would love the Bee stamp - soooo cute!


  6. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team.

  7. A chance to use some pretty patterned papers for Christmas makes this a fun challenge and the DT samples are beautiful. I would love to win the Bee stamp or the shutter card kit if I win.
