It occurred to me that all you planner layout nuts like me out there, might not realise that this challenge is open to you too. As long as it is a paper, well our planners are, and you have ‘crafted’ your layout in a way that is within the theme of the challenge then you are good to enter:


And generally this theme is pretty open, after all the ‘nice’ part can be pretty much anything christmas:- a cute santa; a sweet sentiment; yummy candy canes etc so do go for it and you never know you could win a whole heap of prizes – see right now here they all are!

And now before we get to the rules lets run through the prizes offered by our fabulous sponsors:-


2 digi’s of your choice from their store, Click the blink to check out their fabulous stamps:-

Or as I call her “Iris the Washi Tape lady” lol! Iris has kindly not only offered a 35% discount to a winner of the challenge but also has offered a 10% discount to all of you. So click on the link and use this code for your 10% discount LOLLILULU10 valid until 1st January 2015





Alice of Kit and Clowder has kindly offered a winner a $15 voucher to go towards one of her fabulous colouring classes. These classes are great whatever level your colouring, and I speak from experience as I am enrolled in not one, not two, not even three but four of her classes and am throughly enjoying them and learning loads. I think those of you that have been following me a long time have commented that they have noticed the difference in my colouring. I have done a post on this in more detail so just go to the side bar for the search box and you will find the post there.




Mitzi of Aurora Wings has offered one lucky winner a $10 gift voucher to use in her store. I think if you are a stamper then unless you have been living in a hole you will have heard and seen the fabulous work of Aurora Wings. But if you are not sure or just want to take a look anyway then click on the link below to go look around her store.




From myself I am offering a 25% discount voucher to be used in my store. This will be valid for 3months just so it gives you time to wait a little longer as I am hoping to take a small break from posting at the beginning of the new year to add a lot more product.


So just before I get onto the boring bit of rules I just want to add my thanks to both our wonderful sponsors and the amazing guest Design Team 🙂



So now to the rules. they are nice and simple:-

1. The paper craft project must be made within the scope of the theme as described

2. Please no back-dated projects that have been previously posted on your blog or elsewhere

3. You may enter as many times as you like but each entry must be a new project

4. You can enter your project into as many other challenges as you wish

5. When your project is ready for submission, please link your creation here using our linking system which will be at the end of this challenge. Post your creation on your blog, or an alternate online gallery, linking back to Lolli Lulu Crafts Challenge. Please only link back to your actual project entry not your entire blog or multiple projects. Links to the entire blog, links with multiple project submissions and links not linked back to us will not be considered for the prizes.

6. We reserve the right to remove any project for any reason without notification to the entrant

7. We would like to comment on your entry if possible so please ensure your link is to a site which does not require us to become a member and sign in to comment.


So that is it, the examples, the sponsors and the rules so now it is over to you, I really hope this is a success and that we have lots of entries, I would love to see you enter even if you think ‘oh no Im not good enough’ because firstly you are, and secondly this is open to crafters of all levels which is why it is going to have the winners chosen by random. So the very last thing to add is that the closing date for your entry is 12 noon on Christmas Eve (24th December 2014) and the actual announcement of the winners will take place on Christmas Day. This gives you 2 whole weeks to make your project.  Hope you enjoy the challenge and again please don’t be nervous to enter it is meant to be fun so Enjoy!
