Each month we will chose a couple of projects that will be highlighted in a special post.

The Sponsor

"Pion Design is a family owned company located outside of Luleå in the northern part of Sweden. We are a manufacturer of scrapbooking papers in a vintage and romantic style and our papers are created and printed locally."

Pion Design has give a grand prize to the winner of the August Challenge - all 17 papers from the new collection "Greetings from the North Pole" (+ the palette papers).

This year Pion Design wants to share the magic of winter and Christmas with the paper collection Greetings from the North Pole. This collection invites you to a winter wonderland where you can immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery and surroundings of the home of Santa. You can almost hear the sparkle of the Northern Lights and the bells of Santas reindeer as Greetings from the North Pole captures the peace and serenity of the season. All the splendid patterns and images of Christmas bells, snow flakes and magical landscapes will make crafting memorable gifts and home decor a treat!
Greetings from the North Pole consists of 13 papers in the size 12x12”, including one image sheet, as well as 4 single sided papers in 12x12” with 4 designs in 6x6”.

Pion Design never settles for anything but perfection. When we heard that our customers were searching for solid papers to match our patterned papers we decided to design and print our own, using the unique Pion Design color palette. The result is the collection Pion Design Palette, a wide selection of subtle colored premium papers that make a beautiful foundation for every crafting project and that will go together with our patterned papers perfectly.

The papers in this collection are of a heavier weight than our patterned papers and can be used for altered projects or to add layers and dimensions to cards and layouts. These papers also have a white core which makes them perfect for embossing, distressing, sanding and tearing.
