Welcome to Magazine Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and found some time to play outside or around the house. Speaking of around the house… (like that transition?) 🙂

Last Friday we announced our Gallery Idol Top 15 and gave them the theme for Round 2 – incorporating household items. With just the weekend to concept, create and submit their cards, the Top 15 definitely had to think fast. Perhaps they resorted to using their KitchenAid (a favorite household item) for not only inspiration, but to make something sweet for those midnight craft sessions!

Are you ready to see these yummy creations? Please click here to view the entries for Round 2 and vote on your favorite design. If you didn’t register last week, you’ll need to register and login with our secure contest tool to vote. You’ll only be allowed to vote once per voting session, so make sure it’s your absolute final decision. Voting will take place from noon (MST) today until noon (MST) on Thursday, July 16. We’ll announce the Top 10 and the next round’s theme on Friday, July 17.

Best of luck Top 15!

P.S. Guess who was recently spotted around Cath’s house? Last Friday the Paper Crafts team took advantage of Cath’s hospitality and congregrated on her cute porch for some great food and lively conversation.

Arent we a cute bunch? Thanks to Cath for hosting another fun party on the porch!
