Feeling Nautical LEAD & Show Stoppers

WOW!  The Curtain Call Crew was absolutely "blown away" by the wonderful reception of our paper-crafting community!  Thank you so much for your excitement as we opened the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The Feeling Nautical challenge entries were quantity (over 100)...and in quality!  What we LOVE at the Curtain Call is admiring how each participant is inspired differently and creates something so unique!  

Without further ado...the LEAD of Curtain Call: Feeling Nautical is the one, the only...

Congratulations, Heather!  Please contact me ( with your mailing information so I can get your Verve goodies sent to you:)  

Here are a few comments from the crew...

"I LOVE Heather's use of diagonal stripes and contrasting navy anchor!  The white embossed sentiment tag with twine and a sprinkling of gems...everything works!"

"I love Heather's card!"

"I'm in love with Heather's card!"

"Heather's card is a WOW factor for me...she is so awesome with color!"

The Feeling Nautical Show Stoppers are...

"I love Amy's sweet little lighthouse in the stitched circle frame."

"I love the coloured stripes and the circle around the lighthouse...very cute!"

"Lindsey's card really 'wowed' me, especially the woodgrain on navy and her tiny hand-drawn anchor."

"I like the way she tied the red baker's twine around the stitched circles to mimic a life ring...brilliant!"

"The colors and clean lines of Jen W.'s card really caught my attention.  It is SIMPLY perfect!"

"Richard's design is so perfectly executed!  The anchor image is beautifully fact, I thought I was looking at a die-cut window!  An inspiring take on our challenge!"


"I love the way she used the cheerful and bright.  I also like the circle with the ocean scene and twine around it."
