Fabulous Sponsors for August

emailheader (2)

Thank you to Susan for inviting Anna’s Craft Cupboard to sponsor the Scrap The Boys Blog for July and August.   Anna’s Craft Cupboard began as a small online store approximately four years ago and is now one of the leading online Australian Scrapbook stores.   I  strive to bring my customers new product as quickly as possibly mostly sourcing direct from the US.

Located in Western Australia, Anna’s online store stocks a wide variety of scrapbooking manufacturers to suit all tastes and budgets. The store has an up to date blog with step by step projects featured weekly, created by the talented design team. The store also offers inspiration to scrapbookers with monthly product showcases designed by her team using both brand new and older lines. The gallery has a Monthly Sketch challenge with a generous prize of $40 gift voucher and free postage.

There are also 3 random draws for customer order per month with generous prizes. New customers receive 10% off their first order. Anna’s Craft Cupboard is now also on Facebook and twitter to keep customers up to date with the latest information about the store so connect with Anna’s Craft Cupboard online here too.

August Challenge 1: “In touch with his…”

I am over the moon at the response we had last month on both our challenges…there are loads of very talented boy scrappers out there…and I feel very privileged that you have supported the blog and shared your beautiful layouts here. I especially want to thank those of you that are playing along from overseas as your work is inspiring and I know it is less tempting to share when you are not in the running for the prizes …so keep them coming:) Now for the challenge ….

I don’t know about you but I know I really struggle to put flowers on a boy page so the first challenge for August is to scrap a layout using flowers …to make it a little easier I will allow this one to be of you and your boy/s… Or if you can’t come at flowers …scrap about their feminine sides… or if you are feeling very clever… use both criteria.

This month our team was supplied with a fabulous pack of boy embellishments from one of our sponsors My 2 Angels and here is what our talented team put together for this challenge…
