July 2014 Winners, Features, Finalists AND Honourable Mentions!







Hello again everyone & THANK YOU for your awesome participation last month!
WOW when I finally went through each & every entry on Sunday my jaw was on the floor - 
remarkable work & so many EXCELLENT ENTRIES!  I can see that we are making you
 stretch every creative muscle in your scrappy bodies!!  Keep up the great work & keep trying! 
 Competition is STIFF at SATW but that's what makes our 6 prizes that much more coveted - 
because they are GREAT PRIZES & they are HARD WON!! 
 Remember to follow our rules so your entry can be considered!

We had 99 entries in July - which was GREAT considering that July is traditionally
THE SLOWEST MONTH at challenge blogs, due to the European Summer.
So even the sunshine can't keep you away any more!  AWESOME!!
Above is a reminder of our July mood board.




Absolutely incredible piece of work.  Completely Breathtaking!
Everything necessary is here.  Clean but artistic.  Layered but simple.
Clustered but not overdone.  Perfect Balance!!
CONGRATULATIONS NUPUR!


Now onto our Top 4 Features - Places 2 - 5

 How absolutely precious is this?  And how seamlessly does the photo
 meld with the photo stack & that then into the stunning hand-painted 
background?  WOW.... This is something very special!



Jelissa is one of those people that produces constantly amazing work so if you want to see
 how it's done I suggest following her blog, 'cos this girl sure knows how to do it!  
She is a regular here on our Wall of Fame & for good reason.
  Beautiful work & photographed perfectly.



Dreamy!  I absolutely LOVE this layout & I wasn't the only one!
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty!  I love the dandelions flying all about
the page & the feeling of lightness & freedom.  Excellent job.



How absolutely yum is this?!!  You really need to click in HERE to
 take a look at the close-ups on Marta's blog.  Absolute treasure...



 

Completely gorgeous page & love the vibrancy of the colours 
& the freedom & lightness of the mixed media work!




So soft & light & LOVE that idea of the punched strips on the
 background - definitely want to try that out - what a great idea...



GREAT colours & love the design.  Not too much or too little
& such an eclectic mix!  Love the use of the maps too!!


page scrapbooking SATW\

A dramatic take on any challenge is always a sure fire way to catch the eye 
of the Design Team.  Take a look HERE at how Tiphanie created that AMAZING
 background - & guess what?!?  ANYONE can do it - it's a must see...



Another very pretty entry full of beautiful mixed media work & resist
 techniques/products. Again perfectly balanced with a touch of black for
 definition & so light!!  Very gentle & lovely.  Well done ladies!!
