OUR CRAFTY FRIENDS

How To Play

Our challenges are monthly, going live at 4:00 AM Mountain Time on the first day of every month and run until 4:00 PM Mountain Time on the last day of the month. We always play Anything Goes!

Although you'll probably see mostly paper crafts, we welcome any and all kinds of handmade projects - from cards, tags, ATCs and scrapbook layouts - to 3-D projects, mixed media canvases and altered projects - and even knitting, crocheting and jewelry! Whatever you're working on, we want to see it! :)

Our Winners are randomly chosen to give everyone an equal chance of winning our challenges, however, our Top Picks are still chosen on merit by our design team. Our Winners and Top Picks are announced on the 10th of the month following the close of each challenge. We do not solicit sponsorship so there are no prizes. We play for *FUN* ... for WINNER and TOP PICK badges. There may occasionally be a goody bag of craft supplies thrown in by the blog owner or some blog candy scattered for a lucky winner! ;)

You may enter up to five (different) projects in our challenges and you may combine our challenges with as many others as you wish.

If the linky tool happens to be down it is your responsibility to come back at a later time to link up your project. Leaving your link in a comment does not guarantee that your project will be seen and considered for a winner or top pick honor.

Link just your project - not your entire blog - to our challenge via the link-up tool at the end of the challenge post. List our challenge in your blog post AND link back to us. Link-ups via other means of social media such as Facebook, Flickr, Pinterest and/or Twitter must also list our challenge AND include a link back to our challenge. If this is not done, you will not be eligible for winner or top pick honors. Please note that Instagram does not support links, therefore, you will be unable to link back to our challenge. This means that if you link up via Instagram, you will not be eligible for winner or top pick honors. 

No back-linking, please. Your project must be new and never posted to your blog or other social media prior to the date of our challenge.

Absolutely no digitally-created projects - we want to see tangible handmade creations.
