Challenge # 322 - Shape it up!

Morning and hello! Welcome back to a new challenge with us here at the Paper Shelter. I hope that you had a great week and had plenty of crafting time. Here in Sweden has a nice lovely snow storm just started so it's both cold and windy. Perfect for crafting. This year do we start with a tiny bit harder challenge from the B-team, but not that hard. We are going for the theme of

Shape it up!

That means that we want to see shaped cards of any kind, this week we will not let any totally square or rectangular cards pass. 

Please do check our rules before entering your card. 
They are just a few and very simple. 

Make sure you follow the theme of the week!

Every week do we get a little help from our friend Mr Random to help us pick our winner. This week's winner is

Congrats, you have won three TPS images of your choice. Use the contact tab above to get in touch with the Paper Shelter and Veronica will help sort out your winnings. In the subject line please write "Winner challenge 321". You have until Saturday during the current challenge to claim your prize.

As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

The team is really starting up the New Year with a bang. Some really smashing creations for you all to take inspiration from and to get your creative mind going. We can't wait to see what you all come up with for this challenge. It might be a little harder than normal but you can do it, you know you can! It doesn't have to be fancy, just a bit shaped. 

Take care everyone and do something that makes you happy! (Like playing with us here at the Paper Shelter for example!)

Love n hugs
Marie and the Brilliant B-team

Congratulations Charlotte and well done. And we now have a quicker way for you
to claim your prize and that is by clicking on the "Contact" tab at the top of the Blog where you will find a form where you can add your choice of  3 digi images.
Please also add you email address and Christmas Break Challenge in
the subject line so that it makes it easier for Veronica to see which Challenge 
your claim is for, also you must make sure you claim your prize by Saturday this week.
As always our sponsors for this Challenge are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their store.  


I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges. So many more of you are actually using The Paper Shelter items in your creations so a lot more winners are now winning the whole $30 to spend.  You can enter up to three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please, its only.

Before I show you what the girls have been up to I have some brilliant news, one of our DT members has returned to the Team so I want you all to welcome Louise and make her feel loved, its lovely to have one of our team members return back to us so thank you Louise for making up my Design Team to a full compliment.
And now for the stunning cards the girls have created for you lots of different New Beginning ideas for you to try.
