Winner of Six Cards on the 6th!

Hello everyone! Jennifer here. Sorry it has taken me a little while to post the winner of the Six on the 6th Card Series that we held for the last five months of 2013. I am currently packing to move house and am feeling overwhelmed by boxes and junk (but very much looking forward to moving on Friday!).

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with the series. It was so fabulous to see everyone's cards and I know I'll be checking back for inspiration when I start planning my 2014 Christmas cards! 

Without further adeiu, the winner of a pizza box stuffed with stash was...

Congratulations Jane! Please email Sarah at sarah(at)sjpapercrafts(dot)co(dot)uk telling her your mailing address so she can send the prize out to you!

Here's some of my favourite cards that were linked up during the series:

From left to right, starting top left, these cards were created by: Becky, Frances, Jenny, Jacky, Jane, Ruth, Nikki, Louise, and Lisa-Jane.

Thank you so much ladies! Lots of wonderful ideas and different styles to see!

Look out for some new exciting things that will be happening during 2014 here on the SJ Crafts blog! Along with our usual fabulous DT inspiration of course!

If you need inspiration for some everyday cards for this year then make sure you check out Louise's posts Part One and Part Two, which are full of gorgeous cards along common themes to get her through the year!

Projects that WOW! ... And A Giveaway for a Class Place!

Design Team member Jennifer Grace is running her first ever online class - it starts next week on Monday the 10th of June!

Here's what Jennifer says about the class:

Projects that WOW!’ is about making your projects stand out from the crowd. What makes you pause and look closer at a scrapbook page when you are flicking through your own albums, or looking at other people’s layouts in magazines? Which cards jump out at you from Pinterest or from envelopes when you open them? What details of paper-crafted home d├ęcor or jewellery make you stop and say ‘wow!’? It’s time to learn some of these techniques or styles and put them to use!

Class participants will receive 15 prompts (lessons) with ideas to jazz up their papercrafting! There will be over 90 project samples (scrapbooking, cardmaking, and others), from both Jennifer and a selection of Guest Contributors from around the world.
There's also going to be challenges with prizes, lots of which are some of the latest goodiess to arrive in the SJ Crafts shop!

The class runs live from Monday the 10th to Friday the 28th of June. All the prompts will still be available after the class ends - so you don't have to worry about 'keeping up'!

For more details go check out the post at Jennifer's blog HERE, where you can also sign up for the class for £10!!
There's also a chance to WIN a class place by leaving a comment there (that giveaway closes Thursday 6th June in the evening).

Give Away Winner!!

Firstly huge apologies it has taken a while to draw the winner of my giveaway!

Now, I know there are fancy systems like the Random Generator or whatever it's called for selecting winners but I much prefer the old fashioned method of picking a piece of paper out of the bowl, unfold it and see whose name is written on it!

So, this afternoon I wrote all the names on slips of paper and asked my daughter to choose one!

And the winner is .......

Lisa-Jane !!!

You win all of this! Well Done!

I will be back soon to announce the brand new S J Crafts Design Team.
I had a tough time choosing from all the applicants but got there in the end!
