“Crafting with the Stars”–Season 3

Here we go again: Calling all crafters!!!

Have you guys missed this fun competition? It’s been 8 months since Season 2, so it’s about time for Season 3 don’t you think?
It’s time for "Crafting with the Stars"!

Do you think you are pretty crafty or just really enjoy making things?
Do you enjoy pushing your creative limits?
Would you like the chance to work with a blogland "star"?
Then this is the contest for you. Here's how it works:

Auditions are now open. Submit 1 project that shows everyone your best stuff into the linky party at the end of this post. Projects must have been made August 1, 2011 or later, and must be your own work.

**At this point in the competition, it does not have to be your original idea. I understand that even making something with a pattern/tutorial can be difficult and demonstrate your talents. However, keep in mind that you want to stand out from all the other entries, so I would recommend entering something unique and original.**

You have until Thursday, September 15th to enter. From the entries, 12 of you will be chosen as our contestants and paired up to work one-on-one with a Big-time, craft blog "star", to duke it out in a four-week competition to see who's the craftiest. Most of the "working together" will be via email (or in person if you happen to live by each other.) The "star" will mostly give suggestions, ideas, encourage, and help you come up with the best project possible. You will do the main part of creating. Each round will have a theme and eliminations, so be prepared to put your best foot forward if you want to survive.
Themes are currently being voted on HERE. Polls are open until Friday, September 2nd @ 10 pm MST, so hurry and go vote now!

You guys voted for the STARS, and just in case you missed the announcement HERE, let’s introduce them again.

1. Mandi (Vintage Revivals)
2. Kimbo (A Girl and a Glue Gun)
3. Jamielyn (I {Heart} Naptime)
4. Mandi (Tidbits From the Tremaynes)
5. Marian (Miss Mustard Seed)
6. Beth (Home Stories A to Z)
7. Emily (Décor Chick)
8. Linda (Craftaholics Anonymous)
9. Kierste (Brown Paper Packages)
10. Wendy (The Shabby Nest)
11. Amy (Positively Splendid)
12. Gina (The Shabby Creek Cottage)

Awesome, right? Each of these women is incredibly amazing!!! Wouldn't you love a chance to work with the best and use their expertise? Then don't waste any time and get your projects ready and linked up. Remember, all entries must be in by Thursday, September 15th 8pm MST. The 12 finalists will be announced Wednesday, September 21st.
Also something different this season is we have a KILLER prize package right from the beginning. Now you have even more incentive to enter. More details on that tomorrow.

If you enter the contest, please proudly display this button on your blog to send everyone over to check out your project. Who knows? The number of times your project is viewed might help your chances.

If you're not quite ready to join in as a competitor, but still want to join in the fun, grab this button for your blog to spread the word!

And as always, you can follow along on Facebook and Twitter (hashtag CWTS).
Good luck everyone! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

  24. This may sound like a dumb question... and even after googling i can't figure it out... but ... how do i add the button to my blog? I've never used buttons before and i can only get a HUGE picture of the button, but i've seen people put normal size ones on their pages. Is there any easy fix? Thank you so much and thank you for this opportunity! I can't wait to hear on the 21st!
