Challenge 22 is OPEN !!

Welcome to Challenge 22 !

We want to remind you that Kraft Outlet has been sponsoring our design team this month, and our designers have really rocked out some gorgeous projects using Kraft Outlet goodies !

Few things please us more than the chance to introduce our loyal readers and challenge participants to fabulous products they might have never heard of before now... and even fewer things please us more than being able to offer you a shopping discount to buy those fabulous products for yourself!

We are also proud to announce our Grand Prize sponsor for November, Scrapbook Circle! At Scrapbook Circle, they have been creating monthly scrapbooking kits for over 4 years and love every minute of it! They also love sharing their ideas and getting to know other paper crafters on their blog, on Twitter, in their idea gallery, as well as on Facebook.

Unlike many other clubs with scrapbooking kits, they do not require a long commitment to be a subscriber. You just commit to receiving 2 consecutive kits to receive the subscriber's lower price. They also offer single kit purchases. Additionally, they love combining a lot of manufacturers in their kits plus each kit includes a custom pdf download designed to coordinate with the monthly kit.

As a way of introducing Scrapbook Circle to our participants here at Papercraft Star, the Scrapbook Circle is offering their November kit as the November Grand Prize! To be eligible to win the kit, participate in one or more challenges during the month of November (the more times you participate the more chances you have to win!) and we'll randomly select the winner of this fabulous kit on November 30, 2010!

This week's prize is a tag and card set from Sweet Liberty Farmhouse !! Wouldn't this be a wonderful gift this holiday season - if you could part with it yourself !!

Sweet Liberty Farmhouse features a delightful collection of primitive cottage decor, recycled and upcycled altered art. They also feature extra grubby, super grungy prim tags, cards, journals and pillows. Their "Christmas at the Farm" collection includes unique ornaments made from flea market and garage sale finds, and for your Holiday stationery needs, they have a special section of Primitive Cards and Tags. Sweet Liberty Farmhouse also has lots of one of a kind decor items for your rustic, country, shabby, or vintage style home and gifts for all the vintage and prim lovers on your list! All handmade in owner Kath's rural Ohio home!

This is Jan's favorite Christmas card she made this year ! The challenge had so much to it, she had to accomplish it in two parts ! The Kraft Outlet postcard, envelope and cardstock were perfect for a vintage card.

Tracy chose a double Fleur de lis mat made of Kraft cardstock from our sponsor, Kraft Outlet, for her handmade blingy Christmas tree. The card base is also made from Kraft cardstock. The background was created with some fun and festive Christmas papers and inked for a vintage look.

More goodies from The Kraft Outlet for Christy this week! For this card/tag project Christy decorated a pillowbox that will house some yummy goodies for a very special person! Finishing off her project Christy used some Kraft Cardstock, Brown Kraft Bakers Twine, and Twill Tying Tape.

Regan used this weeks challenge to create a tag and gift bag all in one! She used these great little Cotton Drawstring Bags along with the Round Metal Edge Grungy Prim Tags from our sponsor Kraft Outlet to create this fun project! She made the Christmas tree charm as her handmade embellishment, used glimmer mist and stickles for her bling and used an ornament punch for her die cut. For more photos and details, please visit her blog.

Didn't our designers do a fabulous job this week with their Kraft Outlet goodies !!

Tomorrow it is Liz and Catherine's turn to dazzle you !! Be sure you return for that !
