Special Guest Sponsor

It's time to spotlight another one of our great sponsors!

This manufacturer is fairly recent, but has already won our hearts
with its gorgeous intricate designs and carefully put together collections.

Let's learn a little more about MINTAY through their own words:

The creative concept of the Mintay brand and its products are the projects of Karola Witczak - a well known designer, craft teacher and craft industry consultant, both in Poland and all over the world. Karola has been cooperating with many craft brands over the past 11 years. What is so special in our paper collections? They are versatile, and designed in such a way as to squeeze out from them as much as possible! Someone creative once said: 'Give me a sheet of scrapbooking paper and I'll do anything!' And so is our philosophy. Mintay collections feature versatile motifs that work well for a variety of applications. We want to limit you in your creative work as little as possible. The multitude and design of detailed graphic elements that you can cut and apply as an embellishment or layer, illustration arrangements or color palettes - everything is well thought out. Our collections are not only about high quality paper, print or original design, but most importantly, the products are created by enthusiasts for passionate crafters.

You can find more about each designer showcased below as well as 
all the Mintay product line by visiting the following links:


We are so very proud to spotlight the following gorgeous projects from 3 very talented designers, including the owner, from the Mintay team which feature their chipboard and have been inspired by our September Main Challenge

Karola: Inspired by the word SUNSHINE and the colour YELLOW, I recalled beautiful memories of sunny Spain and decided to create a layout with a photo of me 
and full of sunshine, in a marine theme.

Yes! You guessed it! Karola is the owner and designer of Mintay Papers, and we love that she has chosen to join us in this GDT reveal with a very beautiful page inspired by the seaside and, of course, sunshine. 
The Marina collection is full of Summer delights.

 Anna: SUNSHINE & YELLOW is a perfect match! I love scrapbooking Summer photos so I didn't have any problems with finding inspiration. I took the guidelines very literally by using a very limited colour palette - mostly YELLOW - 
and the word SUNSHINE in my title.

We are totally in love with Anna's layout. It couldn't be more perfect for our challenge! She has used the very sunny Farm Life collection from Mintay.

 Cathy: Inspired by this month's word, I chose to document daily moments in the SUNSHINE between two people in love. YELLOW is a wonderful colour and perfect to highlight these beautiful moments and feelings.

As Anna above, Cathy has opted to use the Farm Life collection to create this absolutely stunning page with loads of yellow goodness.

Let's take a look at several other paper collections from Mintay!
You can see all these collections in their entirety on the Mintay website.

And here are 3 more collections newly released, each as fabulous as the next! 
Which one is your favorite?
