As you might recall, we shifted the date forward by "one day" for our very first, official presentation of submitted projects sent to us as part of last week's CP Creative Weekly "Patterned Parade" Challenge. We thought the extra day would accommodate those of you that might of been busy over the weekend, or hadn't until the weekend to really sit down, relax and craft a few hours. Like you, we are busy folks as well and know that there's always lots going on, especially this time of year with kids returning back to school and last minute vacations. Hopefully you had a chance to whip something together and submit it to us on time. We don't want for anyone to miss out on the fun - and what's not to love about pattern paper?! Obviously, it's a BIG hit with most our fans given the popularity of this first challenge. Yesterday evening, we hand-selected our favorites. From that group, we chose a winner on the basis of creativity and general design aesthetic.
We would like to formally congratulate our "Pattern Parade" winner, Cassandra Cyr!

When having seen Cassandra's layout for the first time, instantly, the patchwork star caught our attention. So much love and attention went into creating it, and the papers look extraordinary together! In addition, the sewn lines and journaling around the star, make this layout a true WINNER! Congrats Cassandra - you're the proud new owner of both On Trend and Acorn Avenue patterned papers!! Woo-hoo! Please send your info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the faves, a mix of gorgeous cards & layouts that cater above and beyond to Crate's vast pattern paper options...
