The Paper Players – PP400! – A Celebration Theme Challenge from Jaydee

Paper Players are SO excited to be sharing our 400th challenge with you and, because it is such a major occasion, and because we have some incredible prizes to be won, this is a two week challenge.  Our theme for the two weeks is CELEBRATION and we are celebrating YOU – our Paper Players.  Without YOU we would not have reached such a major milestone.  We thank all of you for playing along with us.  We also thank our past designers and guest designers who have helped us bring you inspiration for 50 weeks every year.

The crafting community really is an amazing community and we have been lucky enough to have some wonderful sponsors offer up incredible prizes to our players.   In fact, we have 40 – yes, that is FORTY – prizes up for grabs.  Now, that’s a way to celebrate 🙂  Prize winners will be randomly selected through and announced on our page on July 18.  We really hope that you will play along with us over the next two weeks and help us celebrate.  We also hope that you will visit our amazing sponsors.

As it is our 400th challenge, we have two of he original Paper Player design team joining in…big hugs to Ann Schach and Anne Marie Hile.  Before we get to the wonderful cards the design team has created to help us celebrate this week, let’s take a look at the fabulous prizes from our  generous and amazing sponsors. Listed in alphabetical order:

    I really like everything about this fun shaker card, especially the pretty purple paper! All those colorful little hearts just add to the fun, and I admire anyone who can make such a pretty shaker card! Beautifully created!

    Elizabeth, this card is the perfect way to celebrate our 400th. I love the shaker elements in the package – what a wonderful card! So glad that you were able to stay on and help us celebrate our 400th challenge. big hugs

  3. sandym says:

    Eliz, I love shaker cards but tend to steer away from making them because those darn sequins always escape! Yours looks just perfect, and I love the colorful mix of heart sequins. Happy 400th and a Happy 4th to you!

  4. Nance Leedy says:

    Oh this is so bright and happy, Elizabeth! Love that big present die and the shaker idea is just perfect for our celebration. Delighted to work with you on The Paper Players–you’ve been a great addition to the team. Big hugs, my friend!
