We’re Celebrating – A Special Challenge!!

MakeitColourful June 25, 2011 40

Can you believe Make it Crafty is turning ONE!?!

Woohooo – The celebrations have begun at Make it Crafty!!!

We are excited today to be sharing this celebration with Quixotic Paperie, who were the very first company to take on the Make it Crafty line of stamps, laser cut embellishments and now the Make it Colour blending card.

Quixotic Paperie are celebrating too! It has been their two year anniversary celebrations for the month of June!

To celebrate we thought, rather than a blog hop we would set a CHALLENGE using Make it Crafty products!!

To play along you can choose to enter your projects into any of the challenges below!

There are 5 categories you can enter and you are welcome to create a card combining more than one category.

  1. Merge as many Make it Crafty images into one scene.
  2. The most creative combination of Make it Crafty  images
  3. Create a project using ONLY Make it Crafty rubber stamps
  4. Create a project using ONLY Make it Crafty Laser cut embellishments. NO IMAGES!
  5. And lastly, create a project with Make it Crafty images and coloured with Blue, Mustard/Yellow and Brown (Make it Crafty Logo colours!)



There are FIVE GRAND WINNERS (1 from each category) who will each win a prize from Make it Crafty!


There will be random winners throughout the whole month.  The numbers have been pre-selected and as soon as an entry is added that matches that number they WIN! Winners will be announced soon after entry on the sidebar of Make it Colourful.

PLUS there’s MORE!!

Quixotic Paperie have a little something for you too!! Make sure you pop on over to HERE to enter your name for a chance at MORE Make it Crafty Goodies!!

AND I have heard a whisper that she is planning on having random giveaways on her blog throughout the month of July! All you need to do is leave her some love as she’ll randomly be choosing people who have commented on her posts throughout the last year!!


You’ll also receive a set of steak knives when you…  hahaa ONLY Joking BUT… for THREE DAYS ONLY you’ll be able to get 40% off Make it Crafty Digi Stamps when you enter the coupon code: CELEBRATE

    OH NO! I just filled my card up with digi stamps … thinking that I could get 40% off (I’m not allowed to purchase any more craft stuff this month .. but my Husband agreed to this as it was such a great deal) but when I entered in the coupon code it said it expired 28th June! Silly silly me! I thought I had one more day …. but instead I was a month behind! 🙁 so sad now ….. no digis for me this month so can’t enter the challenges either … but I’ll be back next month! sob sob sob

    Congrats on turning one!! I am very excited for you. I currently own one image and was browsing the site to get more. As I searched for a coupon code I found the one currently offered and tried using it, but it did not work. Is there a certain amount I need to purchase to use it?? Please let me know, I’m so excited to get more digis.

    Love the cards! I’m so disappointed I missed the 40 percent:(
    I wish there was a way to get email notices.
    Anyways love all the great cards!
