We’re down to the wire with Cropped! 2014. We had some amazing layouts submitted for Round 4, and the journaling on them was phenomenal! Some made us laugh, some made us cry, and some transported us completely into the moment with their great descriptions. We narrowed the field down (as hard as it was!) and we’re excited to announce the following 10 finalists:
Round Five is Dessert, and we think it’s the perfect way to finish off a great meal, and our contest. This week’s challenge is to go all out… Our contestants should make their “dessert” layout luxe, rich, decadent, sugary sweet, and over the top. Whether that’s through their subject, their journaling, their embellishments, their techniques, or all of the above, now is the time for them to go all-out. They also must include the 4 Mystery Basket Ingredients, which can be re-purposed as needed to fit the theme of the layout. PLEASE NOTE: To choose our Cropped! 2014 Champion, we will be judging both this round’s entry along with their entire body of Cropped! 2014 submissions.
For our final round, we are joined by two guest judges: Jen Gallacher and Jennifer Wilson. They will team up with Gennifer Bursett, Sarah Hemmert, Karla Dudley, Shannon McNab, Tiffany Tillman, and Sabrina Poole to decide who will be our Cropped! 2014 Champion.
Jen has worked in the paper crafting industry for over 17 years as a writer, editor, design team member, and teacher for companies including Karen Foster Design, Making Memories, American Crafts, Northridge Publishing, and Two Peas In a Bucket.
