Welcome to Magazine Monday! Summer may be officially over, but there’s one constant in all of our lives: friendship.
According to our 2011 Reader Survey, 97% of our readers make cards for their friends. Whether you’re sending birthday wishes, a note of thanks or just a friendly hello, nothing says “I’m thinking of you” like a handmade card.
Today we’re spotlighting the winners of our August Gallery Challenge. Inspired by the camaraderie shared throughout Gallery Idol 2011, we felt a girlfriends-themed challenge was the perfect theme to wrap up summer. Guess what? Two of our three winners were Top 20 finalists in this year’s contest!
Let’s meet our final winners!
Congrats, ladies! Each of you has won either a one-year subscription to Paper Crafts magazine or special issue of your choice, a fun selection of girlfriend-themed product and have been added to our Designer Blog Roll. I’ll be contacting you shortly to discuss your prizes. If you’re interested in seeing all the projects from our August Gallery Challenge, visit our online gallery HERE.
Wanna join the fun? We’re still accepting entries for our circus-themed September Gallery Challenge! This three-week challenge will run through midnight (MDT) on Monday, Sept. 26. Click HERE to upload your entries today!
P.S. It’s time to announce the winner of my Swap Ideas Day post!
