A few days ago I happened to mention that Spellbinders are running a competition...
today I thought I would explain it in a little more detail because it isn't any ordinary competition -
it is super special!
Firstly - it is the BIGGEST contest they've ever hosted to date!
It is called Spellbinders Explore Beyond Challenge: Craft to Win
and it gives you a chance of winning $5,000 Grand Prize Package from Spellbinders and
their cross promotional partners.
They are also going to be choosing a 2nd place winner to receive a $1,000 prize package and a
$500 3rd place prize package.
This means not only will you receive Spellbinders products but also products
That is some serious crafty stuff to play with!
How do you participate? It's easy!
Simply create an original project using at least two (2) Spellbinders dies.
Be creative, dabble with something different - push your own creative boundaries.
They are looking for crafters and artists who have really taken on the challenge to truly "Explore Beyond".
You need to take photos of each step of your project - this is because if you are chosen as a finalist you will be asked to submit these photos.
Submit a photo (of your finished project only!) to the appropriate Spellbinders Flickr Group.
Contest runs from November 26th, 2012 through December 26th, 2012 Midnight EST.
There are categories:
The essential rules bit..

I appreciate that was a lot to read and we are all very busy as we hurtle towards Christmas,
but if you can take some time out to do a little crafting then have a go at entering.
Perhaps you are heading off to a craft group today, get everyone to have a go!
I would be over the moon if any of the winners come from the UK!
I'm back tomorrow.
