The January winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is Number 10


Hi everyone Evelyn here

Here are my top 3 in no particular order: 

5. Elle 

I like the vibrant background with the stamped clock faces and the clocks at the edges. The sentiment fits perfectly for the new year!

7. Granne

I really like, how the Alice story is displayed! Very lovely! And of course the pocket watch in the middle doesn’t´t miss.

8. Sandra

This journal page is so special! I love the stencilled couple in the middle and the decent stamped clocks at the background.

Special mention

2. Jean

Jean made a wonderful album for her son with the gorgeous Sir Vagabond paperpad from Stamperia.

The paper makes this album very special and I really love it!

Thank you again all participants, you did a very good job!

Evelyn xx
