Introducing The Spring Fling Project Contest Thing

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in Cake Decorating, Contests & Giveaways, Crocheting, Jewelry Making, Knitting, Paper Crafts, Quilting, Sewing | Comments


Now that spring is here, we’re reveling in the warmer weather and the sunshine. It makes us think of birdsongs, and gentle breezes. And, of course, it makes us think about crafting. And when we think about crafting, we think about projects. And when we think about projects, we think about project contests!

So, with that, we present you with our latest contest: The Spring Fling Project Contest Thing!

Similar to other project contests, the rules are simple: upload your spring-themed/spring-inspired projects and put the words “Spring Fling” in your project title! (That’s important, as that’s how we know it’s a submission.) The project with the most hearts, by April 15th, wins. The Craftsy member who owns that project wins free access to any Craftsy class of their choice!

    In the spirit of spring and the litereary “ides of March” thing.. There is a party every year at a friend’s house.
    I know it sounds silly, but it is an Ides of March party, and of course it’s an anual TOGA PARTY! This year I wll be in attendance with a great toga that I am currently working on. Even though sheets are “acceptable” for this sort of thing, I much prefer something more formal for a toga. I wll be making the toga and a beautiful mantle as well as the decorative accessories like a matching choker, bracelets and arm band set. I am crossing my finger sthat it all turns out as I hope.. Being only a novice at sewing. :-)

  8. Donna says:

    Do you want all the instructions or just a photo of the project?

    I can’t wait till my camera arrives…lol..I have no way of putting a pic on…sigh…

  10. Cindy S says:

    Can we enter more than one item?

    1. David says:

      yes!

  11. Rebekah says:

    What do you think about changing the title of a recent Spring-themed project I uploaded to enter this contest? By change, I mean, add the words “Spring Fling.” And can we do more than one project? Thanks!

    1. David says:

      You’re welcome to change the title of a recent spring-inspired project. Enter as many as you’d like!

  12. Erin says:

    I keep getting a “bad kitty”error and have to keep typing my instructions! It’s very frustrating. Am I doing something wrong or does the site have a glitch?

    1. David says:

      I am forwarding this on to help@craftsy.com so they can assist.

  13. Abby Van Buskirk says:

    Hi!
    If we are making a quilt for the contest, does it have to be quilted and bound, or can it be just the quilt top? Thank you!

    –Abby VB

    1. David says:

      Quilt top is fine!

  14. Sarah says:

    When/how can we start looking and “hearting” the projects that have been submitted?

    1. David says:

      Search for “Spring Fling” in the project section, then click the heart if you like it!

  15. Elizabeth Mermel says:

    Where do we go to vote on the projects?

  16. Sherri says:

    I noticed we’re supposed to include hearts in the project? As I recall, I thought that was on a previous contest. Do you really mean to do that again?

    Spring doesn’t bring to mind hearts, particularly since Valentine’s Day is over. I’m more in the mood for nature stuff.

    Was that a misprint?

    1. David says:

      No, you don’t need to include the hearts. What we’re saying is that the project that gets the most hearts (people click the hearts when they like it, so get your friends to visit Craftsy to click the heart to “like” it) wins.

  17. Kara says:

    Can we enter more than one item? And who decides if it’s ‘Spring themed’? :) My idea of spring my not be someone else’s.
    Thanks a bunch!

    1. David says:

      If you put “Spring Fling” in the title, we’ll assume you have/had Spring in mind with your project! And yes, enter as many as you’d like. A helpful hint: get your friends to Craftsy to click the hearts, too!

  18. Kathy Potts says:

    Can it be a kit that I ordered and put together or does it have to be an original?

    1. David says:

      Any project, as long as you made it, counts. Many people work off patterns, and that’s fine!

  19. Joanna Strohn says:

    Do you have instructions for uploading from an iPhone or iPad?

    1. David says:

      I have forwarded this to help@craftsy.com so they can assist you!

  20. Jeanne says:

    What does “The project with the most hearts, by April 15th, wins” mean?

    1. David says:

      When you have a project, people can click the heart button to show that they like it. Every person who clicks the heart is recorded as a number of hearts. So if three people click the heart, your project will have three hearts. (You can see the number in the right corner of the project image.) So the project with the most hearts by April 15th wins.

  21. Renee Thomas says:

    Where do we go to view the entries? Is there a link to it?

    1. David says:

      Simply search for “Spring Fling” in the projects section here on Craftsy!

  22. annwms says:

    I posted a hatband I beaded with delica seed beads for my husband. And now I can’t find it. I put spring fling as the title. Help???

    1. David says:

      I have forwarded your question to help@craftsy.com; they’ll most certainly be able to help!

    David,
    Imagine my surprise and pleasure to see in my email yesterday that my “Spring Fling” home decor tapestry had been seleceted as a runner-up. With much thanks for the honor! I hope everyone has as much pleasure viewing my tapestry as I did making it.
    Best -
