For the June Designer Challenge the theme was Photo Accordion albums. My team of 11 plus 3 guest designers took on the challenge to use any of the Pop it Ups Accordion Album dies for any length/theme album as long as it incorporated photos.
If you missed the Designer Challenge post last week, I encourage you to check it out. It's packed with inspiration on a variety of themes, including a new video tutorial from me for adding clear pages to albums, plus several team members used the two new Accordions coming in July: the Ring Accordion and the Katie Label Accordion.
For the June Secret Word giveaway, members of my mailing list were instructed to use either the word Katie or the word Ring (or both) in their comment so they would be automatically entered into a random drawing to win one of the available now Accordions (Circle, Oval or Fancy) plus a set of companion Frame Edges to fit (Square w/Circle, Oval Dots, Oval Flourish or Fancy Frame Edges).
Since I had two teaching trips in May, I was unable to get a newsletter out with the Secret Word Giveaway so I promised my subscribers that I'd give away TWO prizes for June. A random number generator chose these two lucky winners:
At first I liked the look of the Katie label best, but I could see actually having a ring on my desk with pictures. It is very fancy looking and would class up my messy desk.
I really enjoyed the video showing how to use clear pages with the Katie design. It was also great that you showed us how you fixed the card when it broke. Keep up the great work.
I will be e-mailing Lisa and Carol to find out which of the available-now Accordion Albums and Frame Edges they choose for their prize and then the dies will be sent from the warehouse in Colorado within a week or so.
Congratulations, Lisa and Carol!
