Challenge #60: Opt. Twist…Layer It Up

Hello Crafters! Can you believe it?! In less than 24 days, it will be Christmas. Once again, another year has come and almost gone in absurd speed!

Before I continue, I wanted to share some news regarding our team. Two of our members, Julie and Pat, have sadly had to go on an extended leave of absence to deal with issues going on in each of their personal lives. Pat will try to join us when she is able to. It is our hope that both these incredible ladies will be back with with the team as soon as they possibly can be! In the meantime, they will be sorely missed. Additionally, Helen G., who has been with us since January of 2017, has decided to step down from the team. It has been wonderful having Helen with us for the last two years. She is an incredibly talented and sweet lady and she too will definitely be missed. I hope that you will join me in wishing Julie and Pat all the best as they deal with the issues going on in their lives, and to also wish Helen G. the absolute best as she goes on to new adventures in her life!

As it is the first day of December, it is time for our final link up of 2019 to get under way! Given how little time is left until the BIG DAY itself is here, it is imperative to get all those last minute Christmas and other December Holiday cards completed before we run out of time! To provide you with some extra incentive to get your cards completed, we have some lovely prizes available! So, why not join us for your chance to win?!

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I created it under the 'Introductions' tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'Basic Rules Summary'.

Right now, time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...

Challenge #60

 Optional Twist: Layer It Up


The Sleigh Belles and Merry Maidens have been working hard all year to get their Christmas cards created and as such, I gave the team the opportunity to take a much deserved break from having to post this month. A few of our team members decided that they still wanted to create; so, for the start of the challenge there will a handful of DT makes for you to check out. At the midway I'll simply post a reminder about the link up and the digi paper poll.

Since the holidays are upon us, I'm offering up a couple extra prizes this month. 

First off, if you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use a minimum of THREE layers on your card.  

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $10.00 worth of digital stamps to the Scribbles Designs store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Marble Textures 1 (you can find a preview for this set by clicking HERE).

I'm also in the midst of designing that same set of marble textures only with some gold running through the veins. The team doesn't know it yet but I'm doing it to give them an end of year bonus gift for being such an incredible group of ladies to work with! I will also give away one copy of this set called Marble Textures with Gold 1, to one lucky person, chosen randomly from all entries.

Finally, as a thank you to all of our players, both new and long standing, I'm also drawing one random name from all the entries to win that person's choice of ONE mini kit selected from all the kits that were offered up this year to my team members. These are the same 12 kits that the individual paper given out each month during 2019 were selected from. If you would like to take a look at all the past kits designed this year, simply click on the word 'Poll' located in the Labels section at the bottom of the left sidebar. Then, simply scroll through all the polls for 2019.

So in summary, that is a total of FIVE different prizes for December's link up:
  • Marble Textures 1 Mini Kit to one person chosen from those following the twist;
  • ONE free digi paper to those linking up TWO or more cards;
  • Marble Textures with Gold 1 Mini Kit to one random winner;  
  • ONE mini kit, winner's choice from a selection of 12 kits to one random winner; and 
  • $10.00 worth of digital stamps from Scribbles Designs to one random winner.
Hopefully that will provide you all with some extra incentive to add your Christmas and other December holiday cards to our link up this month!

Talking about Scribbles Designs, it is time to refresh ourselves with the details of this returning sponsor…

Challenge #58 Winner Announcement

Hello to all our Christmas crafting friends!  I'm popping in to announce the winners and our top three Stocking Stuffers from Challenge #58. Sorry that I am a week later than expected getting the winner announcement out. Yup, that is now three months in a row and while I was hoping that it wasn't going to become a trend, it apparently is. At least though I'm posting in the same month so I'm still ahead of how late I was during the first half of the year! Fingers crossed I'll get back on track soon.

We had 57 entries in our October challenge and it is time to get on with the finding out who our winners are.

Are you one of those lucky peeps?! Let's find out!





Debbie, you are the winner of a $10.00 gift voucher to the Limited Runs store, our guest sponsor for October (chosen by random.org based on all eligible entries).

Debbie, please send an email to the_12_moc_linkup {at} outlook {dot} com (or click HERE to bring the address up in your email program), with the subject, "12MoC Challenge #58 WINNER" to make arrangements to receive your prize. Please note that it may take me a while to get back to you. Thank you for your patience. In the interim, please grab a copy of the winner badge below for your blog.





Next, it is time to get on with showcasing the top three. With so many wonderful entries to choose from, it is always such a difficult task for the design team. For Challenge #57, Suze, Donna and Lisa (myself filling in for Julie), are presenting their favourite cards. So, without further ado, here are the Stocking Stuffers for October:






Congrats to our top three Stocking Stuffers! Margreet, Anet and Nicolette, please grab a copy of the badge below for your blog.






Everyone who links up two cards each month is eligible to receive a free digital paper. Papers from last month have now been sent out. If you were expecting one but haven't received it yet, please leave me a comment and I'll look into it for you.

The individuals who linked up a minimum of two cards each during the month of OCTOBER qualifying them to receive the digital paper from that month, will receive the Milk & Cookies paper which received the majority of the votes. I have included the watermark of the paper, below...


To all of you who linked up during October, thanks ever so much! We are so happy to have all of you with us and hope that you'll continue to link up your holiday cards during the next couple of months as you finish off your stash for 2019!!! Papers will be sent to the email address that qualifying participants used when they added their cards to the Link Up, as soon as I can manage!

As always, we are going to have a random draw from all the entries and give out a set of six digital papers to one lucky individual. The papers are all made so why not have an extra prize! Here is the watermark for the full set...

Santa Stops Here Mini Kit

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for November. Below you will find a refresher of the details for this challenge.

Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries, ornaments and other creative projects in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.


Challenge #59

 Optional Twist: Red & Green


If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure to use the colours RED & GREEN prominently in your design.  

Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win a $12.00 gift voucher to the Imagine That Digistamp store. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, Misc. Textures: Red & Green.  


If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab. As this is a different kind of link up where we have both an Anything Goes Christmas or other December Holiday option AND an optional twist to follow, be sure to read all the details and rules you need to know in order to participate, by checking out the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog). I have provided a summary of the most important rules in the right sidebar.


If you would like a say in determining which digital paper will be offered to those who link up a minimum of two cards this month, be sure to vote in our poll. Click HERE to head there now.
