Challenge Number 5 - Circles

Whew, the time is just flying by!  Already we're on Challenge Number 5 here at Papercraft Star!  We certainly are having a great time and hope you are as well!   Challenge 5 gives you lots and lots of room for interpretation and inspiration as the guidelines are simply "CIRCLES". 

We're really looking forward to revealing all of our Design Team creations this week as well because we just know you are going to love what they created for you to get you excited about joining us in the challenge this week!

As always, you'll have until 12 noon (Eastern Time) on Saturday to enter your project that is inspired by "Circles" and after that, the voting begins! 

Now before we show you some of our Design Team's creations (remember we'll reveal more all week until Friday), we have some exciting news.... We've got a BIG FAT JUICY BLOG HOP coming your way this weekend beginning on Friday July 23 through Sunday July 25.  Every one of our Designers, as well as our two Judges are participating in this Christmas in July event!  Starting Friday, we will have Christmas inspired projects posted on all of the Design Team and Judge's blogs and a chance to win some SWEET blog candy at each and every blog as well!  How's that for an early Christmas present...eh? So make sure you start here at Papercraft Star on Friday for the big Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Okay...now back to this week's challenge!  Here are the projects to inspire you direct from our very own Designers here at Papercraft Star.... Challenge Number 5 - Circles...


Circle card, circle sentiment, and circle swirly all compliment Jan's circle paper and paper piercing. Jan used her beloved SCAL software for all her cutting.  Visit Jan at her blog to see more of her creations or visit us at the Papercraft Star Forum (link is in the sidebar at top left) to read learn more about SCAL software from Jan herself!


Circles, circles everywhere! For this week's 'circle' challenge Liz used lots of circles for her layout. She chose patterned paper that had circles and used various sized plates to trace her circles and then cut them out. She layered her circles using foam tape for extra dimension. For her title and journaling Liz used dimensional magic. Check out her blog for some close up shots.


This week Caroline made a simple shaker box card using circles for the gumballs. This card could be used for a kid's birthday. All the information on how Caroline made this fun shaker card can be found on her blog.
