First Challenge Monday Eva!!!

Ok folks!!! We are finally here with our VERY FIRST Monday Challenge EVA featuring projects created by our very own Paper Vineyard Design Team!!! I get the pleasure of introducing everyone to our fabulous team and would also like to note that we had a couple of design team slots become available, so for anyone who is interested be sure to participate in our awesome challenge below, link a project and send a DESIGN TEAM REQUEST to with a link to your blog so we can see more of your work.

This first design challenge is open to everyone and is an "anything goes" challenge. We wanna see what you've got! Create an original creation and link it up to the InLinkz at the bottom of this post. Be sure to include a mention of Paper Vineyard's challenge (with a link to this challenge) in your post to be eligible to win. Up for grabs is a Bo Bunny Grab Bag loaded with fun goodies. You will have until December 11th at 9 PM to upload your projects! The winner will be posted on December 13th when we announce the next challenge. Good luck to everyone. Now let's meet our design team and check out what they created with our AWESOME Paper Vineyard products!!! Please give us a call at 480-656-2058 or email us at to get your hands on any of the products featured in the fun projects you're about to see.

First up is the AMAZING Emily! Click on Emily's name to check out her awesome blog!

Emily created this beautiful LOVE themed card featuring the new Be My Valentine by We R Memory Keepers that we just got in at PV she also used our white mesh ribbon (so flippin popular!!!) as well as the new Shimmerz to give the flowers a little bling! Don't you just love that paint on shimmer?!? Finally, shimmer where YOU want it!!! Feel free to check it out at Paper Vineyard.... we'll even do a demo! :) Emily, your project is so great!

Next up is the UBER TALENTED Gayl! Again, click on Gayl's name to check out her incredible blog!

Gayl also featured the awesome Shimmerz. She lovingly added that she's quickly becoming a Shimmerz addict! I hear ya Gayl... I'm tellin you, it's the ability to paint it wherever you want it to go! hahahahahahha! Gayl also featured papers from our exhaustive Christmas papers that we just got in at Paper Vineyard and used the store's Accucut for the bird. The Accucut is available to the public at $2.50 every half hour... call for availability! There are LOADS of images you can cut! Gayl, you did a fantastic job on this first Anything Goes Challenge!
Finally, my project! I actually featured this project a couple of weeks ago on my blog and got TONS of emails inquiring about the products that I used for this, so I thought I would take a moment to share all the Paper Vineyard goodies that went into making this super fun album. First and foremost, I used The Cinch! I love how easy this binder is... it really does make binding all sorts of albums a snap! Next I used a great pair of Cutterbee scissors to distress the edges. All the embellishments were also from the PV along with all the papers. Finally, the stamped images came from my own personal stash, but there's rumors (you know how I love those rumors) that The Greeting Farm stamps will be making their debut at Paper Vineyard next year... YAY!!!

Well, that's it for today gang.... sooo much to see, and our new design team ROCKS! Now lets see what YOU can do! Remember, this challenge is an anything goes, so have fun and let your style shine (or shimmerz as it were... sorry, bad pun)! I can't wait to see what you all design.
