Special SPONSOR GDT Event - Day 2

We are back today with more tribute to our fabulous 2019 sponsors!

Each and every one of our sponsors have played a pivotal role in
the More Than Words blog world and it is because of them
that we are able to inspire you to participate to our monthly challenges.

As stated yesterday, they are one of the main KEYS to our SUCCESS!

So, now let us continue to showcase each sponsor along
with a gorgeous creation from a member of their DT using their products.

Here's a quick reminder of the November challenge
followed by our sponsors' interpretation of it to inspire you!

2CRAFTY is an Australian wholesale manufacture of laser cut chipboard, with thousands of designs, diverse in nature and always up to date with market trends. We pride ourselves on our reliable and quick turnaround of jobs, both large and small, and high quality products as well as unbeatable customer service.

Elena: I created this layout with the word SUCCESS in mind. A couple of years ago, I quite successfully conducted live workshops in the Studio of the Creative People store in my city. We worked both in small companies and in large groups. I remember one day when the girls came to me to make layouts. It was incredibly nice to be recognized as a master who can teach others. It felt like a real success to me. Scrapbooking was the KEY to the door behind which opened a delightful world of creativity! So I added a metal key next to our picture.

2Crafty products used:
Angie's Vines - Clock Face Frames - Line Words - Happiness Borders


49 AND MARKET is a premium scrapbooking wholesaler of paper and products.  Their collections range from shabby chic to boho fabulous or romantically vintage, and will certainly appeal to those seeking quality, without exception.

Lisa: The word SUCCESS inspired me to do this layout of my granddaughter. In the photo used, she was only 4 months old. I saw a big bright future for her. She has the world at her tiny feet. And although she is young, we will all try to lay a path for her upon which she will be able to thrive. She doesn't know it yet, but she will be a success! Incorporating a beautiful metal KEY ties into the quote that includes 'the key to success'.

49 and Market products used:
'Bold and Beautiful' Patterned Papers & Laser Cut Sheet - Flowers 'Enchanted Petals - Ballet Slippers', 'Garden Petals - Ballet Slippers', 'Stargazers - Petal Pink', 'Pixie Petals - Ballet Slippers'


MAJA DESIGN is a Swedish manufacture of craft paper that is dedicated to create unique and very high quality papers for scrapbooking and crafts. Every collection is designed by the company's founder, Marie Janson, and are created with a unique story in mind.

Lenet: The word SUCCESS inspired me to use a picture of an artist carrying her brushes. The word 'create' in the lightbulb, the KEY and then the word 'success' are displayed together to make up the quote in the challenge board 'Creativity is the key to success'. I added some of my own brushes and pencil to embellish the layout as these are tools which I always use when crafting, so in a way they help me accomplish my work successfully. 

Maja Design products used are:
'Vintage Baby' and 'Vintage Summer Basics' Patterned Papers


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. Their collections are not only about high quality paper, print or original design, but most importantly, the products are created by enthusiasts for passionate crafters.

Anna: For me, being successful in life means having a loving home and a happy family. I devoted my life to raising my kids and they are my biggest SUCCESS. That's why I decided to use their picture on the heart shaped canvas to create my project. I also incorporated two metal KEYS and the word 'key' on my project to represent the creative challenge.

Mintay products used are:
'Kiddie' and 'Bloomville' Patterned Paper Collections


CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS is a small family owned American manufacturer of laser cut products such as chipboard, wood veneer, stencils, rubber stamps and acrylic. They also design and manufacture their own flair buttons.

Tracy: I was inspired by the word SUCCESS to create this graduation layout of our daughter. There is nothing like celebrating success in knowledge and the achievements of your child. I truly believe that knowledge is the KEY to success and I have added a chipboard key to represent that.

Creative Embellishments products used:
Keys - Square Inside Square 6x6 Panel - Adventure Word Set


EXPRESSIONSCRAFT is a new brand that manufactures stencils, chipboards, metallic paints, chalk paints and basic mixed media supplies. They have their own manufacturing unit and make all products in India.

Schwetha: Art is a medium that serves as a mirror to my innermost feelings. It is highly personal and yet it can be highly relatable to others as well. This quality in an artwork can be achieved only through dedication, meticulous hard work and patience. Every time someone tells me that they are able to connect with my work at an emotional level and appreciates me, I feel that I have attained SUCCESS. Therefore, I deem art to be the key to success. And speaking of KEYS, I have added quite a few to my project, all unique and intricate.

Expressionscraft products used are:
Crackle Paste - Heavy Gesso Black - Texture Black Granite Paste
Chroma Burst 'Tea Cup Teal' and 'Old Metal Rust'
Chalk Paints 'Tempo Teal', 'Pale Sunset Gold' and 'Military Brown'


THE VINTAGE CHICKS CLUB is an Australian family owned paper craft business since 1985. It has been the staple in the lives of paper crafters, scrapbooking, cardmaking, mixed media, off the page, painting, pottery, floristry and more.

The Vintage Chicks Club DT was not able to participate by providing us with a project, but let's still take a look at some of the assorted products from various brands that they offer in their online shop.


Well, this concludes our Special SPONSOR GDT Event!
