SEPTEMBER WINNERS & Important Information.


Please read the below if you are going to enter KIU challenges, this is just an update of some of our rules for this challenge site...

* Firstly and most importantly your entry MUST be created and ONLY entered for this challenge and NOT be used for any other challenge site.

* This leads to the next point which I have been thinking about for a while and have been receiving feedback about, your layout that you have created for THIS challenge site can not be used as a Design Team requirement for another store or challenge site. 
- You are more than welcome to use products that a certain site/handmade store sells and can also have in your post for example, (the polka dot buttons are from Purple Pumpkin or the chevron badges are from the Greatest View etc...) but it cant be created for a DT/CT assignment.

 * International entries now get voted on for a chance to win a Guest Creative Team Spot, the above rules still apply to our International readers, you must create your entry for this site only and not use it for any other challenges or DT requirements.

* Your creations for this site MUST be created on Kraft cardstock or Kraft patterned paper.

* Since August we now have TWO winners that are voted by the CT or myself and a Random winner along with our Guest CT winner which is voted by the CT on our International reader entries.
I hope you understand why these rules are in place, there are so many challenge blogs out there, we are just trying to make an even playing field for everyone.
What a stunning lot of entries for our September challenge, you all used the colours from the colour swatch so well!

  1. Congratulations winners for this month - there were so many fantastic entries for the colour palette challenge. Love these winning entries.

  2. Well done, these are fabulous!

  3. thanks so much. Very surprising:)

  4. Congratulations to all the winners. With so many great entries it would have been a tough choice!
    Mel, I just wanted to say that I really appreciate the rule that all entries must be made specifically for this challenge. I have stopped entering challenges where that is not a rule. I once saw someone enter 44 (!)challenges with one card - definitely doesn't seem fair to me. Having said that though, I wouldn't object to being able to enter a sketch challenge along with yours as they are distinct kinds of challenges and I almost always start my layout from a sketch :) Just a thought...
    Thank you for always coming up with great challenge ideas. I just wish I had the time to enter each and every one!

  5. CONGRATS ladies..amazing entries all round! :)

  6. OMG!!! ...I can't believe!!! Thank you so much for choosing me as the winner for Sep Challenge!!!... I'm so happy ...!:)

    Congrats to ALZ, Sarah & Kate...


  7. I dont believe they are harsh AJ, we want our challenge blogs to be fair to everyone who enters.
    I dont think it is fair if someone creates a layout for a number of challenges just to win as many prizes as they can for very minimal work, our sponsors work hard for their sites and we are very lucky to have stores that are willing to offer vouchers for people that enter and follow the rules

  8. I was thrilled to be chosen as a winner this month. Thanks girls!!! You left me kind of speechless LOL! Special thanks to Alicia at Scrapbook Fantasies for the gorgeous ribbons I received yesterday in the mail. Cheers .. Alz :)

  9. Much fairer rules for ALL scrapbookers, imo, especially for those of us that don't receive free products in return for promotional purposes.

    I agree with entries being exclusive too, it is an easy enough rule to follow, I don't see the problem.

    Great challenge blog KIU and lots of great talent :-)
