Ok - seems like we've got some interest here! :) I'm pretty excited since this is the first time that I've done anything like this. It's not a "Design Team" call - we don't do those, but I would like to see the work of everyone and who knows - we might extend an invitation. HOWEVER, it IS a little mini-contest and there will be five categories and it will be judged - I'll assemble a panel of "experts" from our design team as well as some of my other friends in the industry to pick the winners. (I usually never pick because I want EVERYONE to win! - I'm one of those people. LOL!)
Anyway - here are the five categories:
1) Most Unique Project
2) Coasters (Use them however you want)
3) Cotton Art Tape - We want to see how YOU would use it!
4) Use of Patterned Paper
5) Best Overall
There are FIVE LARGE prize packages to give out and the deadline is SEPTEMBER 30th! (Midnight EST) You'll need to e-mail your project/layout, etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, any story behind your project, products used, and anything else you want me to know. You can mix Gin-X lines, you can use products from other manufacturers with your Gin-X, other IP product, etc. I do ask that entries are predominantly Gin-X. (By the way - if you check out our Imagination Project blog - link on the side of my blog - we'll be posting ongoing contests in the coming months.) If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me with those, too. Also - you can enter as many times as you'd like! That's right - if you want to enter once you can. If you want to enter 900 times, you can! :)
We may ask if we can use your project for either our blog or newsletter. If you are asked, you will be compensated with a goodie box. We will ALWAYS ASK before using your projects, so rest assured that we're not going to use anything and not contact or compensate you.
I look forward to seeing everyone's entries. I'll keep them "Secret" until the winners are posted. If you want to share your entry online - by all means, feel free to do so. So, please don't feel like we'll penalize you for that.
Lastly - if you're having a hard time finding our products, visit our website at www.imaginationproject.com. There is a list of local and online retailers who carry our stuff. If you still cannot locate products, please e-mail me and I will get you in contact with a retailer that can get you product.
Thanks & Happy Scrapping! I'm so excited about this!!!
