My Favorite Things: Guest Designer Contest

Each month here at My Favorite Things, we hold our Guest Designer Contest, and the winner receives a prize package containing over $200 in stamps and Die-namics from the following month’s release.  The fun really begins though when our special guest joins us in our Weekly Wednesday Stamp Club challenges, as well as Teaser Time for the following month. Our most recent contest was themed Do the Bunny Hop, and the judges fell in love with this fun entry from Bonnie Sharp. After all, what’s not to love about this vibrant color palette, Bonnie’s sweet coloring and of course this clever and sweet Royal Rose Die-namics egg decoration?  These decorated eggs would surely make an adorable spring centerpiece!  Please be sure to stop by to congratulate Bonnie, we’re so excited to have her on board with the team this month. You’ll see Bonnie jumping in on our upcoming Wednesday Stamp Club sketches.    

And now, we already have news about our NEXT Guest Designer Contest!

You have from NOW until May 1st at 12:00 PM EST, so get your thinking cap on.  You may enter as many times as you would like.  All the details are on THIS post on the MFT Forum, but here are a few details: The winner of this contest will win over $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics, AND have the opportunity to play along with the design team for the next release and all the Wednesday Stamp Club Challenges for the next month.

Welcoming our March Guest Designer!

Each month, we hold a Guest Designer Contest as part of the New Release Preparations.  The winner receives over $200 in merchandise from the following month’s product release.  The real fun begins though when the winner joins us for our weekly Wednesday Stamp Club challenge and Teaser Time for our upcoming release! This month’s challenge was to Hit the Books! In reviewing the many beautiful entries this month, one particular entry really stood out. It was not only book themed, the creator designed and completed an entire mini book.  Many products from My Favorite Things were combined into one cohesive project. I’m sure you’ll agree… this entry was lovingly created with spectacular detail! This month we are welcoming back a repeat winner, Angel Rivera! Please stop by Angel’s blog to see all all of her interior pages of her Happy Anniversary Brown Bag Book and to congratulate her on her big win!  Angel will be joining us beginning with this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club.   Congratulations Angel!

Today, please stop by to congratulate Bonnie with her beautiful á la modes: Genie.  You can find Bonnie’s original post here on her blog The Lucky Clucker.  This sweet genie was created for one of our Wednesday Stamp Club challenges, are you playing along with us each week?
