Gingerbread man challenge

Well bloggers, It is sad to say this, but this will be the last cut file challenge for CUWC. We will still have a Show and Tell next week, but this will be the last challenge. Unfortunately, it is a lot of work and we are not having very many participants. Over 1000 files have been downloaded but we have just had a handful of people actually play along. I want to thank all of you who supported us. I have appreciated each and every project and comment. I have learned a lot and enjoyed this blog while it lasted. I will eternally cherish the design team members who went along on this journey with me. You ladies ROCK!

I hope to join up with the DT ladies soon for a blog hop. I will also be giving away cut files on my blog from time to time.

Well, if we have to go out, let's go out with a bang. The challenge this week is to use this gingerbread file on a project of your choice. 

You can email me at papercompulsions@gmail.com to request the file.

Here is what the awesome DT members prepared for us.
The extra gingerbread man accessories will be available on my Etsy store.

(coming soon)
(I messed up and deleted it my mistake.)

I would love to see what you create with this file. Just remember to include a link, our name, and  post it up by next Tuesday.


  1. That is sad news, I really have enjoyed seeing everyone's creations and the lovely FREE cut files you have created for us all.

    Personally I have only joined in once, mainly due to time restrictions on my behalf, and so have not always downloaded the cut files, but have always tried to say a big thank you for the ones I have ...as I know how much time and effort you are taking in making these fabby files. I like to say thanks, as its good to know your heard work is appreciated....so a hooge THANK YOU from me and I will be sad to see this inspiring and generous site end x

  2. Very sad news indeed!!! What a fabulous site with wonderful files and wonderful ladies sharing their work!!! I will most certainly be missing this place!!! I will still be going to visit my friend Jani at papercompulsions.blogspot though for sure!!!Thank you Jani for all of the fun files you have worked so hard on and shared with us all!!! I will also continue to follow the fabulous ladies on this design team.

  3. I'm sorry to hear this will be the last challenge! I have enjoyed participating and of course winningsome of the challenges. Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing your files and your talent with us. Looking forward to participating in any future events. You and your talented DT has provided wonderful inspiration to go with a bang!

  4. Great job guys! These are super cute! Glad to be back playing with you :)

  5. Aww, Jani... it will be sad to see you closing up so soon! I LOVE working with your files and even tho I haven't entered the challenge as much as I would have liked, I have several "works-in-progress" to be posted soon. You can be sure I'll link back to you for every one of them!!!
    Your group at The Crafter's Cafe is full of such GREAT information about SVG's and cutters and I think the crafting community NEEDS you, they just don't know it yet!!
    I know you've put in a lot of time and effort with this project and I just hate to see you close it up, but I do understand your reasons!!
    THANK YOU so much for sharing your talent, and your DT is phenomenal!!!
    Paper Compulsions is at the top of my Faves list and I'll see you there!!
    Your friend,

  6. As the time come to near the close, Thank you Jani for asking me to a part of your venture. Bummer it didn't turn out the way it was hoped to but it was fun! You're file have always included such detailed work in them and I'm so glad that you are willing to share these with people like me who are so inept to figure out how to make my own files :) It was great playing along with the fabulous DT! I think a blog hop sounds fantastic! Merry Christmas everyone!
