Winner and Top 3 Pick for Week of December 12th, 2017

Good morning Everyone!


Thank you all for joining us for last week's Anything Goes Challenge sponsored by Little Blue Button


$10 Store Voucher
Hello! My name is Olga. I’m the owner and designer of Little Blue Button Stamps. All the designs you can see in our releases were illustrated by me.
All my life I loved to draw. I inherited this from my Grandfather Ivan, who created a lot of illustrations for my and my sister’s classes, he did a lot of oil paintings, carvings, engravings and was very creative till the last breath.
I remember myself visiting their house and watching him drawing and painting. It was such a magical time for me!
I started to draw as I was little. Who didn’t?=) But this love never left me, it followed me for all these years.
I had no chance to attend any art school or faculty, I learn everything by myself.
I always get a lot of support from my family and friends. I used to draw Christmas and other holidays banners for our local village club, for my University faculty and for my friends.
Then I had to put some of my drawings for sale and now this is my main income, since I live in a war zone of Ukraine and have no job.
My main supporters and inspiration are my family and my boyfriend Konstantin, who supports me in all my starts. Thanks to him I discovered digital pencil and he encouraged me to start this company.
Little Blue Button Stamps started its life in December 2012 as free digital stamps company “Digital designs by Olga”.
Later in spring 2013 it was reborn as Little Blue Button Stamps and first Design Team started its work.
In the summer of 2013 we started to produce rubber stamps which were pressed and packed by C.C.Designs company. In Fall 2014 we started to release clear stamps but due to some problems in my life I had to shut down both clear and rubber and continue with digital stamps only.
Now I continue to create designs for digital stamps and printables by LBBS and clear stamps for Russian store by Tamara Startseva.

It is so hard to be a foreigner in this business, so I am so very thankful to each of my customers for support!

And the winner (selected via Random.org) is #71-Heike's Art
Congratulations Heike! 
Please contact Deonna at TTCRDCoordinator@gmail.com no later than Monday, December 25th, 2017 to claim your Prize of $10 to the Store and your Guest Designer spot!

This week's top 3, in no order, selected by Deonna are:
 I love all of the dies and layers of this card. The image is also colored beautiful.

I love the distressed edges of the papers, the layering and that Santa is so cutely colored. 
The coloring of this image is fantastic! I also like the snowflake dies and sentiment die.
Congratulations! Your cards / projects will be published in the January/February 2018 edition of Through the Craft Room Door and will also be placed into a drawing for a $5.00 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced here on the blog January 7th.

Winner and Top 3 Pick Week of Dec 5th, 2017

Good morning Everyone!


Thank you all for joining us for last week's Anything Goes Challenge sponsored by  Sheepski Designs
3 Digital Images

Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours.
I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers.
I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some. I opened my shop a month later so I could sponsor challenges and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.
I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby :D


And the winner (selected via Random.org) is #23-FR Creations

Congratulations FR Creations! 
Please contact Deonna at TTCRDCoordinator@gmail.com no later than Monday, December 4, 2017 to claim your Prize of $10 to the Store and your Guest Designer spot!

This week's top 3, in no order, selected by Hayley are:

I just love this. It's so different. They are beautifully put together and very inspiring.

This is just stunning. I love the frosty feel. Very beautiful and elegant. I would love this on my windowsill at Christmas.
I really love this card. Very elegant. The shape and style of this card is beautiful, and finished perfectly with gorgeous embellishments. 

Congratulations! Your cards / projects will be published in the January/February 2018 edition of Through the Craft Room Door and will also be placed into a drawing for a $5.00 Amazon gift card. The winner will be announced here on the blog January 7th.
