Special SPONSOR GDT Event - Day 1

For the next 2 days we would like to pay homage to our fabulous 2019 sponsors!

Without awesome reliable and generous sponsors since our very start, More Than Words would not have known the success that we have had since our debut in 2016.

With our November main challenge in mind, we can all agree that
sponsors constitute one of the main KEYS to our blog's SUCCESS!
Each of these sponsors are successful in their own rights,
and thanks to them, we can offer you awesome participation prizes.

We therefore want to give back a little and showcase each of our 2019 sponsors
by putting the spotlight on them today and tomorrow while at the same time 
bringing you creative inspiration from a member of their DT using their products.

So, without further ado, let's take a quick look at the November challenge
followed by our sponsors' interpretation of it to inspire you!

THE DUSTY ATTIC is an Australian owned and operated laser cutting business, which designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments. They are continually designing so they can bring you new and fresh chipboard designs.

Jen: My inspiration was this photo of one of my sons. He has after four years finished his apprenticeship and is now a qualified plumber. Lots of hard work has paid off and I wish him every SUCCESS for his bright future. For the creative challenge I have added some of the Dusty Attic chipboard KEYS that resemble the keys to his 'work vehicle'!

The Dusty Attic products used:
House Keys - Clockworks - Perforated Mesh - Crazy Stitching Small
Large Arrows - Distressed Grid Stencil


FABRIKA DECORU is a Ukrainian manufacture which produces goods for various handmade crafts and scrapbooking. In their online store, you can find acrylic paints, sprays, texture paste stencils, stamps and so much more.

Yulia: SUCCESS for me is a complication notion; it's more a process than a result. It's something that involves physical and mental strength, unique skills, creativity, courage, enjoyable activities, as well as smart and sometimes spontaneous decisions. Success is something that parents can admire every single day just watching their children. That's why I have created a layout about an energetic and successful kid. I have added a KEY to my page as per the creative challenge requirement.

Fabrika Decoru products used:
'Specially For Him' Patterned Paper, Die Cuts & Flair Buttons
Steampunk chipboard - MDF Decorative Elements - Shabby Velour Paint - Black Gesso
Wiring Diagram Stencil - Texture Paste with Sand - Dry (magic) Paint - Glue


AB STUDIO is a Polish brand producing high quality stamps, non-standard stencils and unique papers, sure to satisfy everyone's taste.

Aga: With my art journal page, I wanted to express that there are numerous factors influencing SUCCESS. People try to reach something at all costs, but sometimes it takes more... maybe perseverance, maybe luck, maybe just hard work... to help your dreams come true. Everyone has to find his own key to be successful. I have added a metal KEY on my design. 

AB STUDIO products used:
Rubber Stamps ID-239, 271, 204, 70, 322


KORA PROJECTS is a Spanish manufacturer of laser cut chipboard and scrapbooking papers. They  create complete collections by adding clear stamps and stickers and they also offer a wide variety of chipboards of any kind. 

Alazne: For this challenge, I wanted to make a door lock which leads to SUCCESS with me looking through the keyhole. I have also included the KEY to this door to success. The key, the lock frame and the word 'success' are made of rose gold methacrylate, and the technique I used in the lock is embossed in pink eco-leather. This project has helped me improve myself with technique and be successful in my own creativity.

KORA Projects products used:
ECO Leather 'Rosa Crepe' - 'Princess Garden' Paper Pack - Background Bricks Chipboard


LINDY'S creates a rainbow of products from sprays, embossing powders to unique dye based pigment powders. For 20 years, Lindy's has been the trusted manufacturer of artistic quality mixed media, arts and crafts products.

Olga: To achieve SUCCESS, first of all, you have to believe in your abilities, believe in yourself. And this is the motive that inspired my layout. To incorporate the creative challenge, I added a small metal KEY below my photo, amidst the flower cluster.

Lindy's products used:
Shimmer Spray 'Bachelor Button Blue', 'Sweet Violet Purple Teal', 'Witch's Potion Purple', 'Cowabunga Copper' - Embossing Powder 'Silver Moon Mistletoe', 'Midnight Ruby'


7 DOTS STUDIO is a European manufacture specializing in scrapbooking collections, owned by Tusia Lech whose passion for paper crafts knows no bounds.

Tusia: When I found out that the topic of this challenge, I thought initially that it would be difficult for me to create about this, because in these days SUCCESS is usually defined in a strictly financial way or by being famous or renowned. Both are not my way of thinking about success. I have been there, and it's not for me. For me, success is being able to be myself, to be free from most limitations and to be able to work at my own pace. It is also the ability to stay with my kids when I need it, walk outside when I need it, sit and drink coffee when I want to. These are all my definitions of success.
You will see a small KEY on my patterned paper to represent the creative challenge.

7 Dots Studio products used:
'Garden Party' Patterned Papers, Elements Stickers, Die-Cut Elements & Tags


THE SCRAPBOOK DIARIES is an online retailer for premium scrapbooking and paper craft supplies. We specialize in kits from the industries' top designers.

Because The Scrapbook Diaries currently does not have a Design Team, we don't have a project to showcase on their behalf, but take a look at 
some of the cool products they offer in their online shop.

We hope that you enjoyed this first day of the Special Sponsor GDT Event!

We will be back tomorrow to showcase the rest of our fabulous sponsors!
