May Newsletter

Hi Everyone, welcome to the May Newsletter. Here we are gearing up for the cold, wet winter weather whilst still enjoying a few sunny days. It might be not last much longer, but we know colder weather is just Perfect for staying indoors to scrap or make cards! I hope everyone enjoyed the last school holidays whilst we still had some great outdoor weather.
How did you all enjoy our ScrapBursts? And what about our new addition - the Card Bursts? During March and April we ran 4 challenges in each section, finishing on April 30th. It was wonderful to see so many of you taking part, and also for the card makers joining in with the Card Bursts. I hope everyone who took part was inspired to create, we certainly had a lot of great entries. The winners in the Spellbinders Challenges will each receive a BONUS prize (if they have purchased their dies used in the challenge from Scrapville!) Now that we’ve closed the voting, we’d like to announce the winners from each section.

Congratulations to the winners in both ScrapBurst challenges:
#1 – NUMBERS Jennie Seal

We also have the “All Aboard” travel range, featuring some great global patterned papers, stamps, labels and tags to help put all your travel memories into place.
