November Winners Post

If it’s the seventh, it must be time to announce the big winners from our November Embellish It Challenge. Our top pick was Betty’s layered and embellished holly card…isn’t this just so lovely? That’s some wonderful stamping with the branches too, and who doesn’t like a touch of gold? Please contact us at a2zscrapbooking@comcast.net to claim your $25 gift code.


Our first of three runners-up (who each get bragging rights and a blog badge to tell everyone how talented we think she is) is Andrea with this striking card with the black, white and gold background for the bright flower.


Our next runner-up is Berina, who actually had two cards that tied for runner-up! These cards were both so pretty and each has metallic accents. I can’t decide which is prettier, neither could the team and that’s why Berina gets two cards showcased.

Our third winner to receive a badge for her blog and  is Jessie with this blinged out tree. Now that is one embellished stamp, and it looks fabulous!


Please email the above address to get your blog buttons. And thanks to everyone who entered this month for playing along and providing us with beautiful inspiration for embellishing our Hero Arts stamps. Don’t forget, we have a December Anything But a Card Challenge up and you can play along all month with your Hero Arts products for a chance to win $25 to the store.

June Winners Announced

Hi, all, just a quick post to announce our June To Die For Challenge Winners. First, thanks to all who entered, we had such beautiful work this month!

Our winner of the $25 gift certificate to the store this month is Maura with this beauty!


The colors are striking and the fun stamping and distressing make the butterflies really stand out–and did you notice the glitter on the wings? Perfect touch! Please email  a2zscrapbooking@comcast.net  to claim your gift code.

Our runners-up win a blog badge and bragging rights to tell everyone how much our DT loved their entries! Just email the above address to ask for your blog buttons.

Helen, who is now on the design team, entered the June contest before being chosen for the team and made this lovely card. It has the right touch of red to really stand out with the kraft and white, always a great combination!



Our next runner-up is Cecilia, with this amazing mix of brick wall and vellum butterfly, both embossed in platinum. What a unique combo she made–the brick texture with the softness of the butterfly is really well done!


Our third runner-up is Kim H. with a different butterfly die and a wonderful shaped card– this is a lovely color combination and the sentiment matches the lighthearted feel of this card perfectly!


We’re so happy to see the entries each month and see what Hero Arts-inspired projects you make. Also, thanks for visiting the blog and shopping the store, we appreciate your support of the charities that every purchase at a2z Scrapbooking helps! You rock! And Congrats to our winners! Don’t forget, we have a July challenge you might want to break out your HA products and enter and maybe you’ll see your name announced next month!

Happy Thursday!



Winning Wednesday

Scroll down to see today’s regular post by Kimberly. Her amazing gift bag just right for the guy in your life…or for anyone who loves the sea!

So happy to be able to finally announce the February Challenge Winner from the Masking Challenge. We’ve been having some minor issues with the challenge link, so we extended the deadline for February’s challenge. But today’s the day to announce the winners!

So many beautiful entries made the decision very tough for the team, but I think you’ll agree that Zelda’s masked card is perfect for spring! It was the lovely stamping, beautiful coloring and a fun design that made this one our February Winner.

Congratulations, Zelda, you’ve won a $25 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies store!


The honorable mentions were voted on by the Design Team and we had a hard time deciding this month on the three who will receive a blog badge for their beautiful work. But here they are!

Andrea’s Paper Antics–that woodgrain background is perfect for this gorgeous butterfly.


Greta H–what a great colorful card perfect for men, teens, and anyone celebrating a big numbered birthday!


Monika Reeck–look at this fun scene…I could see this as the perfect card for a 16-year-old who is now permitted to drive. Love those clouds!


Congratulations, ladies! Thanks to everyone who played along in February! You can join in our March Hero Arts Embossing Challenge this month here if you’re feeling up to the challenge 🙂
