More Excitement-- a contest

Close To My Heart is pleased to announce that the National Papercrafting Month celebration will include a contest- focusing on items that can be made using Close To My Heart products and papers. These might include the My Creations™ Mini Album, Artboard, Display Album, Circle Album, Memory Showcase, or Memory Keeper box; the Braggin' Tags™ Mini Album; the Monthly Calendar; or other products of your choice. The base of the papercrafted project can include products that are not sold by Close To My Heart (i.e. a lunch box, clock, yard sign, etc.) but all paper, inks, stamps, and embellishments must be Close To My Heart product. Papers used in contest entries do not have to be the Key To My Heart Level 2 paper packet; they may be any Close To My Heart papers you wish to use! Decorate them to your heart's content-then let us see what you've done! Because of the variety of projects available, the contest will be divided into three categories of items:
  • small (6" x 6" or smaller)
  • medium (between 6" x 6" and 12" x 12")
  • large (anything larger than 12" x 12").

Here are the rules and prize information:

Entrants are asked to submit one to three photos of their artwork, ensuring that the photos(s) adequately showcase the papercrafting item they are submitting.
Entries can use any Close To My Heart paper packet, including the exclusive Key to My Heart paper packet, and must use only Close To My Heart products for embellishing the artwork.
The base product for the papercrafted item can include items that are not exclusive to Close To My Heart.
You may submit only one entry per size category (small, medium, or large).
The deadline for submitting entries is February 15, 2009.
Close To My Heart judges will select five finalists in each category, and they will be contacted no later than February 20, 2009. Each finalist will receive a free My Acrylix® stamp set of their choice (excluding Stamp of the Month, E-size, or K [customized] sets). They will be required to mail in their entries in order to be considered for grand prize recognition.
One grand prize will be awarded in each size category from the five finalists. The grand prize per winner per category is $300 US in Close To My Heart products.
The 15 finalist entries will be returned to the entrants after the grand prize winners are announced.
By sending in their entries, the contestants agree to allow Close To My Heart to reproduce, photograph, and/or publish the winning entries in any medium that Close To My Heart deems appropriate.
