If there's one thing we don't do enough of around here, it's bragging about your projects, rewarding you for them, and then showing them off here at the Crate Paper blog. One of our BIG goals for 2013 is to hand over our platform to you more often. Our collections shine brightest when in your possession, all cut-up and reassembled in ways that make producing Crate's designs well worth the time and effort. We just never know how they'll be transformed and made into something spectacular. Thankfully, there are places like Pinterest and other popular online galleries at our disposal for those final moments, when we go searching for true Crate Paper happiness. And surely, there's much to see, today being a prime example of that; The winner of last week's Pinterest contest, and a sizable sample of other "pinned" Crate projects are today's main attraction. Take a look!
CP Spotted Artist :: Katie Ehmann
Grand Prize Winner
We thought Katie's creative use of Crate's pattern paper border strips was clever beyond belief. And the hanging Sleigh Ride tags are simply adorable. They're small details we just LOVE. Congrats Katie!!
CP Spotted Artist :: Maureen at Celestial Charms
This charming, playful paper wreath nearly took our breath away. Maureen was inspired to create it when she happened upon a similar wreath at Creative Breathing.
CP Spotted Artist :: Kate Vickers
With the pink and red removed, Sleigh Ride takes on a cool, winter-like feel. That's what we love most about this layout by Kate Vickers.
This gorgeous tray as giving away as a Christmas gift to someone special. Imagine opening a box to find this inside it, awaiting you. How wonderful...
CP Spotted Artist :: Jen Kinkade
We recognized Sleigh Ride's patterned papers in Jen's layout right away. The mixture of elements and torn papers is random and fun, as is the sprayed backdrop.
CP Spotted Artist :: Lynn at Small Town Scrapbooking
Lynn's simple, classic arrangement of photos, Sleigh Ride papers and stickers is perfectly composed and beautifully made.
CP Spotted Artist :: Chantalle McDaniel
Yes, we "spot" cards too. This heavily detailed card is crafted from one of our favorite color combo's; Warm Olive Green & Wild Onion Purple. Lucky us, we found it at Two Peas!
We are a regular follower of Wilna's work because her artistic scrapbook style is always whimsical and a joy to peek at. This latest layout is no exception - we LOVE it!
We're ending it here, but that doesn't mean we still won't be hanging out online, seeking out your Crate projects and giving away prizes galore!! We promise, more Pin Boards ahead! Happy 2013!!
