Challenge #33–Winners!

Hello again!!

Wow, wow, wow!!  You ALL amazed us with your brilliant interpretations of the Friendship challenge!  So much thought, creativity and attention to detail went into each of your projects which made it really tough for us to choose two winners!  But, of course, we did, and here they are!


Outstanding work, ladies!!!  You’ve both won a $25 Avery Elle Gift Certificate for your spectacular efforts!  Please watch your inbox for an email from me with more information about your prize!

We couldn’t let our last challenge go by without recognizing a few wonderful runner up projects, all of which were beautifully created and answered the challenge in a brilliant way!

Aren’t they all wonderful?  I mean, truly.  We are so thrilled that you all played along with our challenge.

Well, friends, that’s it for us today.  Normally, I would say please come back tomorrow for the next challenge.  But if you saw our announcement from yesterday (you can find it HERE), you already know that the AEI♥U Challenge is going on a bit of a hiatus.  We’re excited to change things up a bit, while still featuring and focusing on our wonderful customers’ work using the Avery Elle product line!  Fun things are ahead for Avery Elle, so I hope you’ll follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Flickr, YouTube and Twitter for all the latest Avery Elle happenings!  Again, thanks so much for being a part of the AEI♥U Challenge – we sure do appreciate you and all that you’ve done to make the AEI♥U Challenge a fun place to hang out and be creative!

AEI♥U Challenge–An Announcement!


Hello sweet Avery Elle AEI♥U Challenge fans!


Before I get to the business of today, I wanted to let you know we’ll be back tomorrow to announce the winners of the February challenge.


I’m popping in today to share a little announcement.  The February challenge was the last challenge . . . for now.  We’ve decided to put the AEI♥U Challenge on hiatus!!  We want to thank all of our participants – past and present!!  Seeing your beautiful work featuring Avery Elle products has been an absolute joy, and we are ever so grateful to you all for playing along throughout the challenge history.  Without our players, the AEI♥U Challenge would be a pretty boring place to hang around!  LOL  So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for playing along – it truly made our hearts smile with every single project loaded into our challenge gallery.


We’d also like to thank our challenge design team – past and present – for creating amazing and inspirational projects month after month.  You all are incredibly talented, and we feel so beyond lucky that you all shared your awesome talent with all of us. We can’t thank you enough for being a part of the Avery Elle family.


Avery Elle has some super fun things planned to recognize and showcase the wonderful work of our customers, so please stay tuned.  You’re NOT going to want to miss a single thing!  And again, please stop by tomorrow for the announcement of the February AEI♥U Challenge Winners!!  Until then, have a great day!!
